Between The Lines Clothing, LGBT Shopify website
Between The Lines Clothing, a brand dedicated to designing and supplying high-quality, original gear for the LGBT+ community, is the brainchild of our Director. The brand initially started its online journey with a WordPress website but later transitioned to Shopify to better serve its growing customer base.
The Initial Phase: WordPress Build
- Platform Choice: The first website was built on WordPress, a versatile platform suitable for a wide range of websites.
- Features: The initial build included basic e-commerce functionalities to get the brand off the ground.
The Transition: Migrating to Shopify
Recognising the limitations of WordPress for a rapidly scaling e-commerce business, Between The Lines Clothing decided to migrate to Shopify.
- Migration and Rebuild: We seamlessly transitioned the website from WordPress to Shopify, ensuring zero downtime and retaining all essential data.
- Third-Party Integrations: The new Shopify site was integrated with third-party dropshipping services and Print on Demand (POD) suppliers to streamline the product supply chain.
- Online Ordering System: A robust online ordering system was implemented to enhance the user experience and simplify the purchasing process.
- Mailchimp Integration: To bolster marketing efforts, we integrated the site with Mailchimp, enabling effective email marketing campaigns.
The migration to Shopify has equipped Between The Lines Clothing with a more robust, scalable platform that aligns with its business goals. The new website not only enhances the shopping experience for customers but also simplifies backend management for the team.
