All the planning to develop this custom online shopping store and integrate the SAP with Magento successfully was done by the entire team together in such a way that it becomes one of the most popular online shopping stores.

  • The first step of the planning for this Magento based online store was to decide the functionalities to be implemented and the technologies to be used in the system.
  • The products on this Magento eCommerce platform were divided into the respective product categories and the product page was designed that had product description, code, size, quantity and availability. Also, it had pin code check, review submission and add to cart option.

  • Magento SAP integration was an integral part of the planning.
