Supplies for Candles


The objective of the Supplies for Candles project was to migrate the current WooCommerce website to a more ecommerce centric platform with a simplified interface for the employees. Supplies for Candles wanted to rebrand and this platform move provided a good opportunity to work on this alongside the migration.

The Challenge

The objective for the Supplies for Candles project was to migrate from WordPress/WooCommerce to a more ecommerce centric platform. After looking at the current website and future roadmap, we choose PrestaShop as a suitable platform and began mapping out a project plan to make sure it was a seamless transition.

The Solution

Shopcreator’s remit was to address these issues providing Supplies for Candles with an enterprise level ecommerce website. The main function was to increase efficiency and productivity whilst improving the customers online purchasing experience and ultimately improving the service that Supplies for Candles wanted for their customers. Supplies for Candles also had a dedicated German site and the built-in PrestaShop MultiShop functionality easily allowed for a separate iterations of the site used to serve region specific content.

The chosen platform, in this case PrestaShop, had to be integrated with their fulfilment platform Brightpearl enabling warehouse staff to fulfil orders a great capacity. A key requirement was to enable Supplies for Candles to have greater control over homepage, category and menu changes.

The Results

The project post migration review provided by Leeds based SEO partner Rushh was extremely positive.

The speed at which Shopcreator were able to make changes on the site was nothing we had experienced with any other provider. Not only where the quick to action changes, the level of professionalism with the process made it a pleasure with them on all aspect of the project.

Making our customers happy makes what we do so worthwhile. Nicky Story, Founder at Supplies for Candles had some very positive words to say about Shopcreator and the project itself.

I cannot recommend Shopcreator highly enough! I came into the project after it started and I was made to feel part of the process from the get go. All communication was prompt and easy to understand, regardless of who I spoke to within the team... they have all been brilliant. The way our internal systems work meant this was never going to be the most straight forward project for them and there were a number of delays internally. This led to time spent testing the site being reduced but this didn't affect their quality of work in the slightest. Everyone within the wider business is very impressed with the end result and I would highly recommend Shopcreator to anyone wanting a new website. Keep up the great work guys!
