The decision to migrate from Magento to Shopify was driven by Laine Home's need for a more robust and user-friendly eCommerce platform. Shopify's reputation as a reliable, scalable, and feature-rich platform made it an easy choice for the migration. With a wide range of customization options, advanced inventory management, and secure payment processing, Shopify provides Laine Home with a powerful platform to manage their online store.
To further enhance the site's capabilities, Laine Home opted for a Headless architecture, utilizing Next.js as the frontend framework and Sanity.io as the CMS. This approach offers numerous benefits, including increased flexibility, faster loading times, and greater scalability, all of which contribute to a seamless online shopping experience for customers. By decoupling the frontend from the backend, Laine Home can leverage the benefits of both systems and ensure a smooth, reliable experience for their customers.
As a seller of premium quality home goods, Laine Home offers a wide range of products, including kitchenware, home decor, rubbish and recycle bins, laundry accessories, and more. The site features an extensive selection of products from some of the top brands in the industry, including Brabantia, Umbra, Joseph Joseph, Essteele, Click Clack, Instant Pot, and more.
Sanity.io, a cloud-based content management system, was chosen to manage the site's content, offering a powerful and flexible tool for managing products, categories, and other site content. With its intuitive interface and easy-to-use API, Sanity.io makes it easy for Laine Home to create, manage, and distribute content across their site.
Overall, the decision to migrate to Shopify, with a Headless architecture and the integration of Next.js, Algolia, and Sanity.io, has allowed Laine Home NZ to create a powerful, flexible, and scalable eCommerce platform. The site provides customers with a seamless online shopping experience, featuring a wide range of premium-quality home goods and exceptional customer service.
