Solestage is a shoe consignment store headquartered in LA. They sell and consign high end street wear such as Supreme, Jordans, Yeezys, etc.
Solestage contacted us to help revamp and centralize their operations. They wanted to be able to keep in sync all their stock both in stores and with their online stores including Ebay. Previously Solestage was keeping track of orders and stock manually with spreadsheets. Having no tech team at the time, we spearheaded the product development, design, and engineering based on their needs.
We developed a complex backend storage system for them that keeps their whole stock in sync, allowing for items to be sold directly in stores and online. Their web presence in the USA was on Shopify, while their presence in Asia was on a platform called Wang Dian Tong. There was no direct communication between these platforms, so we built the first ever Shopify <> Wang Dian Tong connection, so whatever you sell in Asia could also be sold in the USA.
In addition, we built the consumer mobile app which allowed users to list their own products up (consignment) and they could manage their inventory through the app.
From a technical perspective, the management platform was built on Django, while the web consignment platform was built with ReactJS, and the mobile app was launched on both iOS and Android via React Native.
The Wang Dian Tong <> Shopify connection was all through Python scripting.
