New Site Features Deals on Shoes, Allows for Easy, Safe Shopping

Magic Logix is proud to announce the launch of, a new destination for buying shoes online in Mexico. The year-long project resulted in a visually engaging, PCI (payment card industry) compliant site that allows shoppers to see the best deals on everything from running shoes to boat shoes to flip flops for adults and children. Shoepacabras sells brands including Adidas, New Balance, Nike, Puma, Reebok, Skechers, and Vans, among others.

Shoepacabras, one of a small handful of e-commerce sites in Mexico, sells and ships exclusively within the country and was created using Magento Enterprise, a specialized version of Magento’s e-commerce software. This ensures better security and speed for the site, as well as the ability to process coupons and gift cards. Magic Logix’s team of developers, including Magento-certified developers Sam Timalsina and Brady Matthews, created the site from scratch. Taking into account special e-commerce measures in Mexico, the team crafted custom modules for payment, shipping, address verification and tax receipt creation. Shoppers can pay via PayPal or a major credit card.

“We are delighted with the site and know shoppers will be as well,” Magic Logix CEO Hassan Bawab said. “Given the magnitude of inventory Shoepacabras must maintain, this was a perfect opportunity for us to use our custom resources to complete an otherwise overwhelming task, uploading information on thousands of products.”

Internet usage in Mexico is growing rapidly, though the actual number of Internet users is still
quite small when compared to large developed nations such as the U.S., Germany, Japan, etc. The current 1.3 million users amount to only 1.34 percent of the current population of 97 million; however, this number is projected to increase to 7.5 million in 2003. In Latin America, Mexico has the second-largest number of top-level domain registrations after Brazil (404,873 for Mexico versus 446,444 for Brazil as of January 2000). Mexico leads Latin America in new top-level domain registrations for the year ending in February 2000 (a 259-percent increase versus 150 percent for the next fastest-growing country, Colombia). Despite the recent rapid growth, Mexico still lags far behind the leading countries in the top level domain measure. There are, of course, other measures that could be used. For example, the director of the Mexican subsidiary of the Internet firm iBest claimed that in June 2000 "Mexico has only 3,000 Web sites, 0.3% of the number in the U.S. and 15% of that in Brazil " ( 2000b).

Shoppers can share their buying experience with friends on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google+ and Pinterest.
