Today we’re putting snowboarder Peter Bauer – whose trophy case includes awards from the World Cup and numerous titles around the world – in the foreground. Why? Peter is not only passionate about snowboards, but also founder and CEO of the successful board sports brands Amplid and Pally’Hi, which brings highly functional clothing made of Marino wool into street fashion.
Next to the classic B2B business and traditional retail stores, Peter also operates online stores for slope-loving end customers. Both online shops are now in the process of upgrading to Shopware 5.2.
Get an exciting look behind the scenes
At the moment, both Amplid and Pally’Hi are still operating Shopware 4. In order to keep their stores state of the art and provide their international customers with more inspirational shopping experiences, Peter made the strategic decision to move forward with a completely new installation based on Shopware 5.2 and with a Professional Edition. To help realize the new shop, he called upon the award-winning services of Shopware partner agency, dasistweb. Together they set off towards the goal of controlling both brand shops, including their multiple language and currency shops, from one Shopware backend – thankfully, with the unlimited free subshops available with Shopware 5.2, this feat was no problem.
As an open company, we promote an ongoing dialogue with our Community. For this reason, we are happy to accompany Peter and his team, step-by-step, through the exciting relaunch process and share some insights with you. In the first part of our series, Peter dives into the following topics, most of which are addressed in the following shortened interview*.
- The brand values and product assortment of Amplid and Pally’Hi
- Reasons behind the relaunch with Shopware 5.2
- Requirements of the new shops
- Overview of processes to prepare for the relaunch
- Cooperation with Shopware and implementation partner dasistweb
- Personal experiences in daily contact with Shopware

The first steps should always begin as a rough sketch using pencil and paper.
