There are 2 main places for storing configuration values In Magento 2: database (the core_config_data table) and XML files. The configurations, stored in the database can be changed via the administrator panel, while the data, located in the XML files are of a technical nature and can be changed only by a developer.
As time goes by, everything needs an updating. Especially when we are talking about webstores and the fast-changing ecommerce world. If you want to be successful you have to be up-to-date, this is the rule. Unfortunately, a migration to the next platform version isn’t an easy task. However, BelVG effectively managed this process for a PrestaShop-based webstore.
TaxFreeSnus is a retailer of famous Swedish Snus and Nordic Chewing tobacco. The company was created by Scandinavians who settled down in Andorra and had no opportunity to buy a high-quality tobacco product they were accustomed to at a reasonable price. Today an online shop provides customers with top snus brands, quick service, and free shipping.
The company already had a working online store based on PrestaShop 1.6. The client’s requirement was to refresh the shopping website and manage the migration to PrestaShop 1.7 version. Since we have a great experience in PrestaShop development we successfully carried out the migration process without losing all content and customers’ accounts.
We also extended the PrestaShop functionality to meet all the client’s requirements. Now a webstore manager can choose products for the homepage through the admin panel. Additionally, the homepage now displays the delivery information in the header. This information is changed automatically depending on the country of a webstore visitor.
Our team had worked on this project for 10 weeks. Both we and our client achieve a beautiful and updated technical website. You can check it yourself by visiting TaxFreeSnus.
