• Stifler – migration increased orders 15x!

    Three years ago, Stifler migrated to our e-commerce platform. We recently met with the online store’s owner, Andrei Amos, and talked a bit about how things evolved.

    How did the business start?

    It was 2012 and I had created my first ever online store on Prestashop. Because my family’s always been involved in commerce, it helped me understand what a shop needs to function. I tested everything and even managed to have some sales, but then I had to abandon everything and finish my studies – which had nothing to do with commerce anyway. Two years later I realized I was going nowhere with my studies, they were even making me unhappy. So I decided to restart the shop and put in three product categories: mobile phone accessories, cufflinks and anchor bracelets. Out of these, I resonated best with the phone accessories. I’m passionate about accessories in general.

  • Minikids – sales increased five-six fold

    Barely over a year ago – in April 2019 – we had finished migrating Minikids to our platform. Cătălin Stancu, the person behind the business, talked about what has happened since the successful migration.

    How did the business start?

    Minikids.ro began its life as an online store back in 2015. My wife and I own a brick-and-mortar baby clothing store, we had it back then too – my wife was managing it. I was working in television. While doing that, I managed to launch a news platform, which is where I found the taste for online projects. After I backed down from that specific project, I got the idea to take our physical store to the internet.

  • Eastcom – simplified operational flow, reduced operating costs

    We’ve migrated Eastcom on our platform about two years ago (nov. 2017), right before Black Friday. Let’s talk with Claudiu Jacodi, EastCom Trading magager.

    Q: How did the business start?

  • Obio – given a second chance, we'd migrate to Gremini sooner

    The story of Obio began in 2012. Back then, Adrian Cadar created his ecologically certified, bio products based brand store. The new beginnings were a continuation of an offline business formerly established in 2008. Adrian talked to us about the past, the present and the future.

    How did the business start?

    I started the business in 2008, with a bio products online store. Four years later the Obio brand was created, and along with it the Obio.ro e-store, concentrating exclusively on ecologically certified products.

  • Guara – the website started selling after migrating to Gremini


    Guara is a Romanian brand dedicated to fashion art, as the owners like to describe it. Wearing Guara clothing makes one feel proud as each design is original and made with that passion for fashion everyone is looking for. A few years ago, the wonderful Guara dresses became available online, so that customers who couldn’t regularly visit the physical stores got to make easy e-shop purchases. A new online store is also a great way to keep customers informed with all the news and updates on the brand’s collections.

    It’s now been more than a year since the online store was migrated to the Gremini platform. To mark the anniversary, we talked to Bogdana Boar, Guara manager. Among other things, we asked how to expand an online business, what are the challenges along the way, how to overcome problems and, of course, a bit about how migrating to Gremini helped with the brand success story.
