Magento multi-store

  • Three eCommerce websites with a single database and admin area
  • Complete OpenCart to Magento migration without downtime
  • Rich-functionality eCommerce solution
  • Geo-targeting: altering tax rates, separate website for visitors from Belgium
  • Mobile friendly design


The client owned three online stores which were built on top of OpenCart. The client decided to create a new brand store ( – for Belgium) and migrate his online multi-store to a new platform – Magento CE.


Since the client already has a well-established and profitable online store, the goal was to improve the current eCommerce solution without the loss of SEO ranking, existing customers and their data: profiles, purchase history, and orders. One of the major acceptance criteria was a website performance.


CodeTiburon was engaged in the project as a sole technology vendor at all stages of application development, from requirements analysis and system design to website development, testing, deployment and data migration. The development team comprised a project manager, Magento developers, HTML coders, and designers.

Functionality overview

Multi-store: one of the project’s goals is creation of a new brand and a website which unites the existing online stores, in order to reach out to a wider audience. A single system back-office used for a shared products’ stock, order processing system, customer’s data and statistics on sales, which significantly facilitates operations of back-office administrators. Payment gateways: the solution is integrated with Sisow payment aggregator, which supports the following payment methods:
  • iDEAL (the Netherlands)
  • MisterCash (Belgium)
  • ING Home’Pay (Belgium)
  • SofortBanking (Austria, Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Switzerland)
  • Giropay (Germany)
  • EPS (Austria)
  • CreditCard (Worldwide)
  • PayPal (Worldwide)
  • OverBoeking/Bank Transfer (Worldwide)
Delivery methods: in order to provide customers with a full set of available shipping methods, the PostNL extension was installed and configured. This module supports the following methods:
  • Free delivery (Gratis bezorging).
  • Delivery by appointment (Bezorging op afspraak). Customers can choose the time when their order should be delivered home.
  • Post office delivery (afhalen bij een PostNL afhaallocatie). Customers have an option to pick up their order at one of the many in-store post offices in the Netherlands, for example, at Albert Heijn, Bruna, Jumbo or Primera.
Translation and localization: Both websites (.nl or .be) share the same language – Dutch. Magento theme has been completely translated and localized. Geo-targeting: the system detects a visitor’s location and automatically redirects to an appropriate web store. In addition, some features, such as registration form and tax rates, are tailored according to a visitor’s country. Blog: a blog is a great way to build the audience and generate more traffic and sales for any eCommerce business. Aw Blog extension has been installed and completely re-designed by CodeTiburon team.


CodeTiburon developed and deployed the eCommerce multi-store solution within the pre-negotiated timeframe.
