they needed a gateway. only this would connect paris to mainland china. quite a leap.
the gateway was on the wish list of diptyque, world-acclaimed experts in the art of everything fragrant. whether visiting their brick and mortar paris boutique or their e-commerce store, youâ€™ll discover fragrances that put the royal rose garden to shame. in their world-recognized collection youâ€™ll find scented candles, perfumes, and just about everything else that makes environments and people more likable to noses.
like many e-commerce retailers, diptyque heard the knock. opportunity was on the other side of the door â€¦ opportunity in the form of a sizzling e-commerce marketplace in china. purchasing power was soaring in that nation. so was a hunger for foreign goods. and its consumers were shifting to e-commerce in a big way. add it all together, and you got a mind-boggling opportunity.
but you just donâ€™t fling open the door when this one knocks. you must be fit to pass through
the marketplace gates. this means a china-compatible website that syncs with an infrastructure consisting of things like alipay, chinaâ€™s paypal equivalent.
diptyque selected silk to create the â€˜paris-to-china gatewayâ€™. experience played a major role
in their decision. silkâ€™s magento-certified experts already had scores of e-commerce gateways
to their credit. they definitely were in practice.
silkâ€™s developers created and implemented a full spectrum of strategies that provided diptyqueâ€™s china-based site with a wide open gateway to the vast online marketplace. drawing from their reservoir of magento expertise, the wizards labored unceasingly to plug the fragrance retailer into a chinese infrastructure populated by alipay, tmall.com, taobao, and more. (rumor has it that the developers never slept throughout the process. but these are yet unconfirmed.)
the good news is diptyqueâ€™s e-commerce site has entered china without a hitch, squeak,
or groan. and itâ€™s making steady progress thanks to silkâ€™s ongoing and
exceptional customer service. how far will the gateway take them? thatâ€™s anybodyâ€™s guess
