ROKA is a technical apparel and eyewear ecommerce company. Their athletes have won numerous world titles, including Olympic gold in triathlon and speed skating, as well as taking multiple Tour de France cycling stages wins and the Dakar Rally.
They wanted their website’s technical capabilities to align with the products that they offer.
The Issue: Shopify’s 100 Variant Limit
Shopify has a limit of only 100 variants per product. According to Shopify, “Each product can have up to 3 options. The options can be different from product to product. For example, one product can use size, color, and style, and another product can use weight, finish, and material.” Each combination of those is considered a variant.
ROKA wanted to offer a customizable sunglasses line, but hit a roadblock due to this limit.
Our Variant Solution
We designed and developed this ReactJS web application to allow users to design their own sunglasses. This custom integration is unique in the Shopify ecommerce space. We built it so that ROKA can expand it as much as they need using Amazon Web Services and an API.
We made the app integration seamless so it fits right in their Shopify site. We’ve also created stand alone product customizers, such as Maven’s customizable builder application.
Our work has helped ROKA increase revenue and offer additional high-end products including: the RISE collection and prescription eyewear. All of this while improving customer satisfaction.
AWS & Shopify Partners
As members of the Amazon Web Services Partner Network, we have access to exclusive AWS technical training. So we’re well versed in AWS tools, architecture, features, and scalability. Using AWS helps us achieve our goal of being readily able to support and respond to ROKA’s growing needs.
In addition, as registered Shopify Partners, we’re familiar with the Shopify APIs available to pull the data we need to build these custom ReactJS apps. So we also worked with the Shopify API on this project to achieve ROKA’s goals.
