Check Your Bag, an online travel bag and backpack retailer, hired Maven to move their store to the Magento and integrate it with the ERP system.

Estimate the similar project


about Check Your Bag launched in 2007 with the goal of bringing popular bag brands under one roof. The multi-brand store is one of the most popular online travel accessories retailers in the Netherlands with over 10,000 fans on Facebook. It got that way by offering excellent service, with most of the orders delivered on the next day.

the goal

the challenge was quite successful and by 2013 was routinely offering nearly 1,000 items that rotated fast. The goal was to provide a customer experience that would give users maximum choice while enabling an intuitive browsing experience.

The original website was showing its age and was getting difficult to manage, so a redesign was a great opportunity to also update the website platform to build a new foundation for growth.


our solution

Maven offered to develop a custom Magento theme from a PSD file provided by a design agency. We developed a number of intuitive product category filters and custom components allowing easy homepage block management that make highlighting Sales, New Arrivals and other special offers easy.

On the backend, we implemented our proprietary product upload features for easy store migration from the previous platform, as well as added a notification when product stock levels drop. To make the checkout process fast, we implemented our internally developed checkout process.

And we are completely satisfied with the quality of work, terms, and quality of service. Thanks to a dedicated account manager!

It is only on very rare occasions that an individual comes along that leaves a lasting impression with their dedication and work ethic. I have to say that Sergey is one such person. Sergey’s dedication to the project has been faultless and he has worked with outstanding professionalism throughout.

Product Manager at Printkick Ltd

When we looked at Maven as part of our selection process and had our first meeting, it was clear that you were the best fit for our company. We looked for people who cared about the project, the mission and had the technical skills to bring it all together. You made us confident we could do it. At times during the project, I was worried. Had we attempted too much in one go? Everything seemed even more complicated than when we had our meeting a year ago in Kiev. Lots of things started breaking. Thankfully, each time we hit this point, it only took a few calls to get back on track and under control. Honesty, compromise, and pragmatism are some of the key factors I have found in completing successful projects, and we made the right choice because these are your values too.
