Polish distributor of folk articles, offering a variety of stylish products via different channels - online, wholesale, as well as retail stores.

The client

Folkstar is the biggest folk art web store in Poland. They are selling items that nobody needs, but everybody loves. The company was founded in 2009 and offers products at 9 brick and mortar stores all over the country. Selling over 25000 products via their web store they are way above their competition.

The problem

Folkstar had great potential in its online channel. However, the web store was simple and outdated. It didn’t even have an online payment integration or a mobile-friendly design. Despite this, the annual revenue of the online channel was quite impressive. Folkstar decided to invest in its online channel to make these numbers even higher and open to the online market.


The project was qualified as a standard sylius ecommerce platform Sylius B2C. The biggest challenge was to provide a fully functional eCommerce platform that will elevate the online conversion in the best ROI, migrate the data from the legacy system and implement a new design based on user behavior analysis.

  • Projecting & implementing a UX optimized mobile-friendly design
  • Setting up the content management system
  • Adding missing features like search index, wishlist
  • Setting up the staging & production environment
  • Training for future improvements & maintenance internally

How we solved the problem?

As BitBag we participated in the eCommerce business design process and delivered all necessary features of the online store, including:

  1. RWD storefront which is simple & pretty
  2. Wishlist plugin
  3. Content Management System integration in one place
  4. Elasticsearch filters for option & attributes on the product index page
  5. Payment integration - PayU
  6. InPost, DPD, DHL courier services integration features label printing and courier ordering
  7. Migrated data alongside with customers and their passwords (we kept them encrypted with the possibility to log in on the new platform)
  8. Hosting setup for easy deployment and environment management
