Snuggle Bugz

Case Study | Syatt elevates Snuggle Bugz to Shopify Plus, upgrading Canada's top baby retailer.

Challenges to be solved:

We set out on a mission to redefine and revamp the Snuggle Bugz ecommerce experience, and we faced a few challenges along the way:

Customizing 3rd party apps: Modifying a gift registry app to work seamlessly with custom checkout requirements, including adding a shipping note and the ability to ship directly to the registry owner.

Mix 'n' match dilemma: Utilizing meta objects, we seamlessly embedded products directly within blog posts, creating an effortless transition from content consumption to purchase for the customer.

3rd party app performance impact: Incorporating various apps can slow down site speed, and for Snuggle Bugz size and volume— performance is critical. A key consideration of this project was the intentional use of 3rd party apps, optimized for performance.

Enriched user journeys: Content is a key factor in conversion and AOV for Snuggle Bugz. Strategically placing helpful content in the user journey, to guide them confidently through the shopping path.
