Meet Save a Cup

As a purveyor of goods such as tumblers, water bottles, and mugs, Save a Cup manages much of its business online. They sell their product utilizing both B2B and direct-to-consumer. Having a strong ecommerce tool, especially one that can be customized to support their tiered pricing structure, is a priority to their team.

The Challenge

Save a Cup’s store had initially been built on Magento 1.0 Open Source. Since then, a new release of the platform had come out, and Save a Cup wanted to take advantage of the new features. Additionally, they wanted to move their website to the Adobe Commerce environment, where it could be fully hosted and supported.

With the holiday season approaching, one of their goals was to make the conversion happen in 8 weeks—just in time for Black Friday.

The Solution

Our first step was a short scoping and discovery phase, to make sure we understood the customizations and current extensions that had been built into their Magento 1.0 platform. This was followed by a programmatic migration of Save a Cup’s product, customer, and order history data using a custom script written by our developer, the migration was quick, direct, and repeatable.

Save a Cup’s website is dependent on custom product pages, pricing tiers, and cart functionality. To create these, we used Magento’s built-in grouped product type to establish parent SKUs with underlying simple SKUs (typically color selections). However, instead of tiered pricing based on underlying SKUs (which is the default behavior), they needed the sum of the product grouping quantity to define the final tiered price.

The Results

We customized Save a Cup’s tiered pricing so that when new items and quantities on a grouped product page are changed, the tiered pricing reflects the total. If customers want to edit items in their shopping cart during checkout, they will be redirected back to the product page instead of editing items directly in the cart. The product page will be re-populated with their current simple SKU, quantity selections, and pricing tier (instead of just an empty PDP which is the default behavior).

Migrating the Save a Cup website from Magento 1.0 to Magento 2.0 required rebuilding the site theme. Working with Save a Cup’s in-house designer, our team recreated an updated website theme for Save a Cup based on their brand’s unique style.

The Save a Cup website successfully had all content and data migrated, its theme rebuilt, and its key functionality recreated by an early November deadline. Just in time for the holiday season.
