The Challenge


The franchise of Steve Madden Malaysia was owned by the Valiram Group, which has an online store for Steve Madden on its own website. Over time, as the traffic on the Steve Madden eCommerce platform increased, it impacted the high performance and speed of the Valiram Group website. As superior website speed is a priority for competitive customer experiences, the Group felt the urgency to launch a standalone Steve Madden Malaysia website to improve online sales and grow their customer base in the region. Moreover, the client wanted this Steve Madden MY online store to be a customized and personalized version of the Steve Madden Australia eCommerce platform along with a few localized third-party integrations to fulfill their digital transformation goals.  



The primary objective of this project was to develop, manage, and scale an user-centric eCommerce store for Steve Madden Malaysia. As building and transforming the online presence of Steve Madden in Malaysia was the key goal, our experts leveraged the Shopify Plus platform for the same. As the group wanted this online platform to be similar to the brand’s Australian store, our team implemented the theme file code from the AU store and customized it as per client needs. 

Moreover, the group wished to implement all the modern and differentiating features and functionalities such as AI-enabled search, automated email marketing, stock and inventory related updates, order status, and so on to this Steve Madden MY store. The client also wanted the home page banners to include both images and videos via banner slideshow. Other imperative implementations were 

  • automated discount tags on products
  • installation and customization of Klaviyo for running email marketing campaigns
  • integrating with Yotpo for social reviews, loyalty, referrals, SMS marketing, and visual marketing
  • size chart on product detail pages customized for different product categories
