Walabot eCommerce Store

https://walabot.com/
Multi-language/multi-store website with custom business rules integrated for each website in the single Magento instance.

Customized shipping rules to include more discounts for specific states in different countries. Integrated subscription-based billing (buy X product with option B with which you will be charged monthly). Added warranty integration as custom price attributes to the quote and order entities. Customized shopping cart flow (add A item automatically in the cart if B is added. Auto-remove B from the cart if A is removed).

Unified Commerce Integration of LS Central with Magento

https://ls-magento.lsretail.com/
Designed, architected, and developed the eCommerce integration of LS Central with both Magento Open Source and Magento Commerce.

The concept was to make everything configurable from LS Central so the store owner does not have to use multiple platforms (including Magento's admin panel) to manage catalog/customer/order data.

Key areas covered in this project:
Replicated catalog data (attributes, options and values, categories, tree and item assignment, item up-sell, cross-sell, and related products, product images, variants, and variant images, sort order, logical order, and more.
• Basket Calculation: Calculated the shopping cart from LS Central to integrate the shopping cart rules configured, which includes but is not limited to mix and match discounts, periodic discounts, promotions, and sales.
• Centralized Order History: Integrated orders from other channels enabling users to view all orders placed from outside of Magento (in-store purchases and through loyalty apps).
• Disaster Recovery: Designed and integrated the rapid fall-back mechanism if the connection to LS Central goes down during the process.

BillaPay Magento Payment Plugin

https://www.infowarsstore.com/
A Magento payment plugin that I designed and built to facilitate payment integration with the BillaPay payment service provider.

This plugin enables seamless credit card payment processing, implements vault payment functionality, supports automated clearing house payments, and provides subscription management capabilities within the Magento platform. The module adheres to Magento's coding standards and best practices, ensuring a robust and reliable payment solution for merchants utilizing BillaPay services.

Magento 2 Store with Subscribe Pro Integration and Customized API

https://www.mymilko.com.au/
A project that showcases the successful implementation of a Magento 2 eCommerce store with seamless subscription capabilities using the Subscribe Pro gateway. In addition, this project includes customizations to integrate with an external system for delivery managers to enhance the subscription management process.

Varnish Enterprise Caching Implementation for B2B Price Calculation

https://www.jpplus.com/
A project showcasing the successful customization and implementation of Varnish Enterprise caching to optimize performance and reduce response time for frequent B2B customers.

The project focuses explicitly on caching POST requests for price calculation on various pages, including the Product Detail, Category Product Listing, and Product Search pages. The complexity lies in caching price information based on unique customers and unique items, variants, and quantities. This project aimed to significantly improve the speed at which B2B customers could view item prices, enhancing their overall browsing experience.

Magento B2B and B2G Store Implementation

https://www.gtdist.com/
A project that highlights the successful architecture and implementation of separate B2B and B2G stores on top of existing Magento B2C stores.

The primary objective was to leverage and customize Magento 2 B2B modules to create distinct websites for B2B and B2G businesses within the same Magento instance. The project focused on customizing the purchase order flow based on a custom field for department approval. Additionally, Magento's category permissions were utilized to restrict catalog access based on customer groups, while shared catalogs were implemented to offer special items exclusively for B2G customers.

PWA Store Application Development with Unirgy Marketplaces Integration

https://dayrize.com/
A project highlighting the successful development and launch of a progressive web application (PWA) store on top of Unirgy marketplaces modules in Magento 2.

The project involved leveraging and extending the default Magento 2 GraphQL web services to fulfill custom requirements for the Unirgy marketplace extension. Extensive GraphQL web services were built, and PWA tools were utilized to test these services. Additionally, performance monitoring tools were employed to optimize and improve the performance of GraphQL web services.
