Customer Testimonials

As with many osCommerce stores we started out with just two people, but as the store grew we knew we needed to outsource the development work. Trust was the number one factor in finding someone and with Holbi’s obvious experience in working with osCommerce they were the only real option. They have quickly earned our trust and respect by delivering high end solutions for our store, so much so we now consider them a true member of our team. Amazon has always been a time consuming aspect of Cuddly Kingdom, but Holbi’s Amazon solution suggested it could increase sales and decrease the time it took to sell on Amazon. The Amazon Integration was exactly what we were looking for. They had installed and tested solutions within a week, allowing us to start benefiting from it before the busy Christmas period.Amazon integration has saved us hours of labour and boosted sales by around 30%. The Holbi development team were available to answer our questions and really helped with the initial start up and getting used to the system. It has surpassed our expectations in all areas. There have been so many benefits to having the integrated system, we are now looking into them doing eBay Integration with osCommerce for us too!
Vanessa Mitchell,
We have been working with Holbi (DataLink) since 2005. Holbi has always been a trustful and competent partner for us. All requests were developed fast at a fair price and the support did not end with the fulfillment of the osCommerce project. We always got instant help even for the smallest issues. Thanks to Holbi for being our partner during the last years!
Andre Melsbach,
We recently commissioned Holbi to restructure our website on a very tight deadline. As always, they were very responsive to our demands and have proven once again how competent they are in their field. I would have no hesitation in recommending Holbi to others once again.
Ashfaq Khan, Ambala Foods
The team at Holbi have developed a sophisticated yet functional web site for Westair Reproductions. Their understanding of my requirements and their flexibility were beyond my expectations and they offer a value for money service. I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone.
Carl Read, Managing Director, Westair Reproductions Ltd
We have been using Holbi for like almost 2 years. They have implemented multiple projects for us. It is certainly a consulting company that I would recommend. The charges are very reasonable. Holbi would try their best to accommodate changes without going through those change control step.
Mr. Ken Lam, USA
We have been working with Holbi since 2006 and they have now built 4 successful e-commerce web sites for us, which include a common back-end and integration with our back office. We have been extremely pleased with the work they have done for us in this time, which has always been highly professional, on time and on budget. What more could you ask for?
David Elliott,
Holbi have been exemplary in their service and delivery of solutions to meet our exact requirements.They really went the extra mile to understand the needs of our ever expanding business. We are pleased that we chose Holbi to partner with for our IT requirements.
Christian Golding, UK
Thank you so much! We are still playing around with the new module but it looks FANTASTIC! The inventory management portion of our cart has been horrible for years. We can begin to position ourselves as an online retailer now!
Krishna D. Spates, USA
Holbi is very competent and always delivers as promised, delivering an excellent service, Thank you. Hopefully together we will continue to develop our site.
Mark Raine, CCTVdirect
We can't say enough good things about Holbi in general and about their management staff in particular, polite, responsive, excellent product. They have been incredibly patient with us whilst we collated data for the products, offered help and suggestions. Hire them and you won't regret it!
Mrs. Evelyn Pawlowski, Director of, UK
I had been trading on eBay for 3 years and always wanted my own website to go with it, but the thought of having to keep track of separate stock levels for both an online shop and eBay put me off. When I heard Holbi had a solution to this, by integrating eBay with the online shop software, osCommerce, I didn't hesitate to contact them. I was so impressed with the results, I then asked Holbi if they could redesign the whole default osCommerce store I had. I was originally going to do this myself with the little knowledge I knew, but after the fantastic job they did with the eBay integration, I knew I could trust Holbi to do the business again. Needless to say they did a brilliant job. Holbi made me an absolutely stunning design, even better than I had imagined, and it has a look of a successful website that has been running for years. I can't thank Holbi enough for the work they have done for me. I would certainly come back to Holbi if I ever needed any more work done to my store.
James Sillcock,
Web DataLink for Sage Line 50 has revolutionised how we operate, saving many hours of inputting and eliminating possible input errors by automating the order download process. The initial investment has been recovered many times over as we no longer have to employ an agency temp to do this job. For a small company such as ourselves, the software is invaluable. We are currently looking at utilising the software on a second e-commerce website which is currently gaining momentum - being able to synchronise orders from multiple websites is an added bonus!
Absolutely the best. After experiencing some problems with other providers, this time I decided to choose a provider with a perfect feedback for my project. Holbi did not disappoint me and delivered exceptionally good work on time and on budget. I will definitely use you guys again!
Mr. Artur Papiez,, USA
We can't say enough good things about Holbi in general and about their management staff in particular, polite, responsive, excellent product. They have been incredibly patient with us whilst we collated data for the products, offered help and suggestions in general and osCommerce support in particular. Hire them and you won’t regret it!
Mrs Evelyn Pawlowski,, UK
Holbi's Amazon Integration for osCommerce (using SOAP) has transformed the way we handle the hugely lucrative Amazon Marketplace sales platform. Orders are automatically downloaded from Amazon, osCommerce stock levels auto-syncronised, and shipping confirmations automatically uploaded - all via one transparent interface. We no longer need to worry about surges in Amazon sales causing stock conflicts, and our Amazon customer feedback rating has increased to 97% as a result. This means happy customers, and lots of repeat business. If you sell on Amazon, this system is an essential, especially during peak trading periods.
Josh Welensky,
We have worked with Holbi since 2008. We have always and continue to find them reliable and good to work with. Nothing is too much trouble and no-one we've ever worked with has had the expertise in coding or programming they do. We would have no hesitation in recommending Holbi to any prospective client.
Andy Toogood, Little Sunflowers
Just a few words to say a big thank you for the excellent job you did modifying Web DataLink software to work with Sunshop php cart. It is now working perfectly and saving me hours of work, and at the same time eliminating typing errors and keeping the prices up to date on the site. I am thrilled with the results and I would recommend your company to anyone (except the competition)
Phil Cunneyworth,
Holbi was very professional and exceeded every expectation that we had for this project. They were open to suggestions and ideas, but also put forth their creative input to help us. They were patient with us as we countered back and forth to make sure this was the correct design. This was a fresh awakening after paying another web designer for the same job and receiving nothing. Holbi did an excellent job. We plan on hiring them for any and all of our future projects.
Jeremy and Jessica, Owners of, USA
We'd had problems with our previous software platform and hosting service so we needed a quick solution to get our website back on the right track. The design and implementation of the new E-commerce website was completed within 4 weeks. We had good communication throughout the process and our feedback was always taken into consideration. We hope to develop a new site that's optimised for mobile phone user next year and Holbi will be our first choice for this new project.
Simon Jennings, DCP shop
In our search for Bibit integration for our webshop, we found Holbi. Contacting them was really a good choice. In a very professional and cooperative way they configured our shop for Bibit payments. Even when our shop appeared to have conflicting scripts installed, Holbi has proven to find solutions to fix it. With no additional cost. Fast and friendly. In the future, we do not need to search any longer. We will definitely contact the professionals of Holbi again.
Edwin Grotenhuis, VVV Den Haag
Holbi have done a fantastic job taking my ideas and design and translating it into beautiful thing that works, looks fantastic and is easy to navigate. The guys have also been very patient, especially when I didn’t understand the nature of a database or technology limitation and rather than ever telling me "its not possible", they came up with solutions that are both practical and creative.Many, MANY thanks. Even from day 1 of relaunch i can see our customers are going to love this site.
Kathryn Hoyle,
Since I am a bit picky about layout, I have had a graphic designer friend of mine help with some of the design layouts to get a unified graphical profile, and Holbi has then helped to implement these on my site, without any problems. They will work until you are 100% happy with the result. I warmly recommend them to anyone, they are very professional and skilled, as well as service minded and nice to work with.

Mrs. Anna Cederholm, Sweden
We wanted to build a web shop for selling temporary tattoos to the European market.The site we had in mind: 4 languages (English, German, French, Dutch), B2B + B2C, good temporary tattoo picture management, minimum order amount, quantity discounts, good CMS, SEO friendly, more than 1.000 products, etc.We soon found out that it is hard to find a software firm that is specialized in web shop building. Most software development teams we contacted had some experience with web shop software, but were far from specialists. That’s why we immediately liked Holbi’s portfolio. These were the experts we were looking for! We also liked the fact that the Holbi software is based on the open source software osCommerce. It has been the leading web shop software for years, with many plug-ins for different problems.And so it materialized… Our web shop is online now. The reception of the site is great. We get compliments for the site on a daily basis. Many features were tailor made. We enjoyed the professionalism of the Holbi team. We were assigned a dedicated project manager, Igor Vasiliev, right from the start. Igor was always helpful, creative and ready to explain things to us.Holbi made the site we wanted! If we should have to start all over again, we would still choose Holbi to make our website!
Jan Buyle,
I have found Holbi to be patient and flexible throughout the development of my website. During the site development another project took me away from the website. When I was able to continue with the site development, Holbi picked up where we left off seamlessly. Holbi have proved to be very knowledgeable with all aspects of website development and protocol.
David Power,
Holbi have been very successful at improving our search engine capability by introducing some modules which allow us to use more targeted keywords in each area of the website and in ensuring that our site is well set up to attract the search engines. After we had a new website we lost one place ranking with Google, but Holbi worked fast and efficiently to make improvements that got us back to number 1 by 'beads' in no time.
Karen Watson,
"I wanted to sell my osCommerce products to Amazon Market Place, without spending a lot of time to manage both shops.Holbi installed their connector, and now I manage these 2 shops with only one tool!Good and fast work!
Maxime, France
Dealing with Holbi has been quite fulfilling ever since we brought our very first project to them. Development team works smoothly, releases are never late and communication is always easy and available. I would undoubtedly recommend Holbi to anyone who requires to build, support and update a webstore.
Joe Keiser, TotalPDA
I contacted Holbi a few months ago as I was having some problems with a webstore I had purchased through a Norwegian IT firm. Holbi offered me help right away at a very reasonable price and I found the service to be truly excellent. I was amazed at the low price for a whole new osCommerce store with all the functions I needed, and true to their word, they delivered a product I am 100% satisfied with. I will continue to work closely with Holbi and add osCommerce features to my store as my business grows.
Anette Thorud, Fitness Star
We recently commissioned Holbi to restructure our website on a very tight deadline. As always, they were very responsive to our demands and have proven once again how competent they are in their field. I would have no hesitation in recommending Holbi to others once again
Ashfaq Khan,
Beginning from April 2011 we contacted Holbi for a quote, their team impressed me with their fast and professional way of working. Already at the first mock up which they provided me, it was exactly how I did like to see my OsCommerce shop with a modern look and feel. After the confirmation it was time to start building the online shop; overall it took 4 months to go live. We have been live for 1 month now and are highly ranked at Google and are impressed about how fast the turnover is rising. We will definitely contact the professionals of Holbi again.
Chris Kuiper, De Wielershop.NL
When our client needed to integrate their online shop with Sage Line 50 we chose Web Data Link. The client install was a snap, configuration was both obvious and intuitive. The server components were installed for us. And when our client unexpectedly upgraded Sage to version 13, Holbi were ready with an upgrade to the client. Web Data Link has allowed for our client to add an online outlet to their business without the need to change or modify any of their internal sales procedures. Needless to say we're very happy with the product and the levels of support.
Mike Parker,
I was looking for an OSCommerce (OSC) book for quite some time and came across Vadym’s book. Initially I was surprised the book was not technical, but I soon realized that all what I needed was covered in a very simple language, straight forward with no fluff or unnecessary repetition. Vadym’s provides useful insight, touches on various topics and provides real examples which as a whole gives you a solid perspective of how an OSC site should function. The book is aimed for business owners, marketing managers and IT professionals who want to ensure the best ROI possible. I would highly recommend going through this book before attempting to build a new OSC site or updating an existing one. We at Double Alpha Academy decided to work with Vadym’s team to re-build our site to take advantage of both of their expertise and the know-how of how to make a successful site better! It was a pleasure working with Holbi, the team is always professional, responsive and helpful. I am sure we will do business again
Eli Huttner,
At the end of 2005 we decided to look at putting our retail spares and accessories onto the Internet, but where does one start? We found Holbi on an Internet search and made contact. They laid out a proposal on how they could help us with the e-shop that we were looking for. From proposal to current day we feel we have had value for money with outstanding support and quick actions when needed. They are open to suggestions and give constructive feedback to requests for changes. I feel we will have a long team working relationship in this expanding and sometimes bewildering business
Martin Hobbs, Margin Services
Everything looks terrific!! I can't thank you enough for getting this up and running as fast as you did - I just wish I would have contacted you six weeks ago! Tell your developers they did a great job.
Mr. Scott, UK
Thanks for the great job done with Spatial Jobs Online ( We look forward to working with you and the team from Holbi on many other projects in the coming months.
Mr Dean M Howell, and, Australia
I was selling merchandise on eBay for numerous years, but wanted to start my own website. A relative of mine let us know about Holbi, who had performed numerous work on their multiple websites. We contacted Holbi and we were impressed with what they had to offer. We wanted a website that was fun and easy to use for both the customer and ourselves. Holbi did a beautiful job while paying attention to the details that we wanted. All work was performed in a timely manner with proper communication. The osCommerce store is easy for us to use and has met all of our expectations. We would have no problem recommending Holbi to anyone that is looking for quality website work to be performed for a reasonable price. We will also be looking to them for any of our Search Engine Optimization (SEO) needs.
Wennie Monroe,
We have been working with Holbi now for nearly 10 months, and in that time we have continually been amazed at their helpfulness and courtesy.They have taken a mediocre, bug-ridden site and created a fully functional bespoke website for us. This new site reflects a greater level of professionalism and offers our customers a much more user-friendly experience, whilst providing us with a more sophisticated and robust back-end system.As always with such projects, there have been software problems along the way. Holbi have simply put them right without question. Such customer service is extremely rare today, and the 'work until everything is perfect' ethos is a refreshing change!We are particularly pleased with the improved search engine ranking the new site has, and we have no hesitation in working with Holbi in the future ... and our next development is already in mind!!
Lisa Whitty,
Holbi are one of the most professional and responsive consultants that we have ever used. They communicated with us extremely well and did a fantastic job. They were on time, and even helped with things outside their scope to ease our transition. We would use them again and again. We have found them better to use that consultants in our country that we have dealt with face to face. Thank you for an extremely professional and terrific job!
Ms.Van Veenendaal, Australia
I would just like to thank you for the smooth and efficient transfer of the Amp3 website to the Holbi servers. It has been the best server transfer I have experienced. Well done to your hosting team.
Josh Welensky,
We had been thinking about adding e-commerce to our Weyfest Music Festival website for some time, but kept putting it off due to our perception of high cost and how much resource we might need to dedicate to it. Only after we discovered Holbi and discussed our requirements did we realise how cost effective a solution based on os-commerce could really be. We initially contacted Holbi in November 2009 and the specification was agreed within weeks. Once the contract was in place we were assigned a dedicated Project Manager who took responsibility from start to finish. After some initial questions, we were soon delivered a solution for testing and after a few iterations the project was signed off in February 2010. We were pleasantly surprised at how easy the implementation was. Since then Holbi have been extremely responsive to our queries and have helped us through all our early teething problems. The solution is working well and we have very happy customers! I now look forward to working with Holbi on adding further features to enhance our customer experience. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Holbi to anyone considering a low cost e-commerce solution.
Richie Ellmer, Weyfest Limited
We are very happy with the result and service from Holbi. Our customers and employees are amazed how fast our osCommerce shopping cart and administration tasks are running now compared to before the application of the Speed Up service. It is a hundred times faster than before. The Smart Search is also more intuitive and has great potential to increase sale.
Loc Pham,
This is the second website project we relied on Holbi. They are absolutely brilliant and professional. The communication from start to end is perfect, they are always helpful and patient. The price is much more competitive compared with other website designers we've contacted and worked with before. We highly recommend Holbi without any reservation
Hao Zhou,
I love working with Holbi. I make a request and it is done. They ask for my input - I checkout their modifications to the site and make suggestions - again it is done - with no hint of a complaint. They fit my mode of working perfectly - I create ideas all the time and want instant results - Holbi deliver. They assist me - they help me creatively - they are an essential component of Duprez UK. If you require an e-Commerce site and want to add your own twist - I could not recommend a better or more reliable partner.
Stuart Atkinson, OffPlanPropertyExchange
We worked with Holbi team on opening our new webstore in Russia. It was a nice experience, they’ve done the job in time, proposed right solutions at reasonable prices. Also we got some extra support we needed. I would definitely recommend this company.,
As with many osCommerce stores we started out with just two people, but as the store grew we knew we needed to outsource the development work. Trust was the number one factor in finding someone and with Holbi’s obvious experience in working with osCommerce they were the only real option. They have quickly earned our trust and respect by delivering high end osCommerce solutions for our store, so much so we now consider them a true member of our team.
Vanessa Mitchell, Cuddly Kingdom
You have made this a very painless process, and I thank you and your team for your professionalism. I look forward to working with you all again in the future.
Patty Civalleri, USA
We highly recommend Holbi for your web development needs. When you begin working with them you get a feeling that they genuinely care about the work and they have so much fun doing it. Not only do they keep you updated constantly while the job is being created but they also offer excellent suggestions on how to streamline workflow. Holbi built an excellent professional relationship with us, as clients and worked hard always bringing awesome ideas to the table. One of the many qualities that we liked in Holbi's team is their agility to make changes and broad knowledge in programming and cool designing. If they say that they can do something they really mean business. We fully expect to continue contracting Holbi for additional projects in the near future as positive results are assured.
Phoebe Arjona,
Holbi team came highly recommended from my previous client who’d been using their services on a number of occasions for his online business. I have never commissioned website design before so I was a bit worried at the beginning whether it all was going to work. But Igor and Vadym at Holbi were patiently answering all my detailed queries without delay. They sent me a clever questionnaire before they even started which was to extract all my desires/requirements regarding the website. It must have worked as their first design proposal for the website was just superb, really professional , I hardly had any comments. We have been through some minor amendments but that was it. The major thing was to upload and put in the right order the content of the website which took some time. But we got there at the end.I am an Architect, so quite demanding when it comes to design, graphics or aesthetic in general, but with Holbi I did not have to worry about these aspects. They have also very patiently explained to me how to make updates/changes to the new website. They have also worked very hard to get the website up and running even with a shortage of staff during the holiday period. I would without a doubt recommend them to anybody who is looking for a professional web designer hoping to develop a modern , high standard website. I will definitely use their services next time I need to update my website or get some advice on SEO etc.
Marek Sekowski, MSc Architect ARB
I was introduced to Holbi by my brother who worked with them previously. The web project seemed to be complex initially since it had to be localized to our native language so I was skeptical how it would pan out. I must say that I never looked back since! Holbi's development team have done a fantastic job all around. Our business started to produce turnover right from week one and got highly ranked by Google within the first couple of months. Holbi's team, to my mind, are top professionals who take their web development to an entirely new level.
Yossi Huttner, Streetball
Thank goodness for Holbi:I wish I had found them sooner! I was beginning to lose hope of ever finding a good solutions provider to my website but Holbi are out there ahead of the crowd and have quickly understood and met the needs of The Language Of..., an entirely internet-based business. Not only do they deliver, but they deliver in a timely, professional and courteous manner: quality of service matters to me and that's what Holbi offers for a reasonable fee. They've been a pleasure to deal with.
Laura Vale, The Language Of...
We are delighted by your frequent and rapid responses to our many queries and requests. These have always been resolved by Holbi in a patient and professional manner. It has been a pleasure to deal with you.
Adrian Stear, Invisible Fence (Wessex) LLP
We wanted to upgrade our webstore radically with new outlook and features. We couldn't find anyone domestically to make this happen - seems like the task was just too difficult and time-consuming to handle. Then we decided to contact Holbi, and couldn't be happier working with them. We got all the features we wanted, and even more. Their communication is of high level, they are very flexible and happy to make all our wishes to come true. On top of all, the whole project is impressively fast and cost-effective. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a e-commerce solution!
Kristian Porthan,
When Holbi first built a new website for my company, I was impressed with the high quality and a timely manner of their work. Our client base expanded significantly and we had no hesitation in coming back to Holbi for more solutions. But before that happened Vadym caught my attention with his SEO ideas smoothly presented in a book that he had previously written. Through multiple discussions and constant communication we came to a decision that our co-operation must then grow into a partnership where Bullseye Media would replace an SEO department of Holbi. And so Vadym and I became co-owners and partners in this new venture and have been successfully working together ever since
Hitesh Patel, Bullseye Media
Having worked with Holbi for nearly 2 years, I have got to know the company and people well, dealing sometimes on a daily basis with Marina, Vlad and Tina. At all times there attitude and inspiration to what we thought was a problem quickly turns into its not a problem we can create a hassle free solution. Vlads knowledge of zencart is superb and Marinas interpretation of new development tasks are accomplished with little input from myself. They appear as imagined and any tweaks are completed pretty much instantly. As a group two of our companies currently use holbis ebay integration which is truly seamless. Perfecting ebay integration to how we wanted wasn't a problem for holbi, nothing couldn't be done. Another one of our companies uses there amazon integration which works well, Whilst our main site integrates seamlessly with Ebay, Amazon, ZenCart, Facebook, Ruby, RubySender, Sage 1000, CityLink, Retail Store, and Warehouse, For integration and development Holbi truly are a company to work with.
Russell Payne,
Thanks Holbi for all your great work in setting up our website, you guys have been great to work with and created a great looking website for us. I would recommend Holbi to anyone looking for help creating a great website for they have a very professional service
James Bedding, FunkyPepper
This small box cannot fit all of the things we can say about team of Holbi. Our business was growing so fast that our old website was no longer viable so we had to revamp it. After almost five months of no income, a delayed website opening, firing four different developers and having the worst web development we've had, we found them. We found this crew of professionals. All of our requests were understood and completed the first time around. No hassles, no questions, and no jerking off. When we were unsure of certain things, they gave us more than enough suggestions to put us on the right path. They understood our needs and wants when we did not understand them ourselves. Since our business has been up and running, we have done nothing but referred everyone we know, including our customers, and business partners to them for Ecommerce work. Thank you! You have saved our business from failing and we are forever indebted to you.
Mr. Tran, USA
DataLink (Holbi) has carried out a number of various sized projects for my company – Lock Enterprises LTD. Some of these projects have been of a very complex manner, with many projects requiring custom built bespoke models. One can only describe the service that I received from them as exceptional! Every single element of the project, from the planning stage to the final handover of the finished article was handled with the upmost professionalism & every query was answered in the swiftest of ways. I can sincerely state that I have never encountered such a professional & ‘true to their word’ company in my entire life of business dealings. I would strongly recommend them without hesitation to you & I can personally assure you that you will not be disappointed in any way from the services they provide to you.
Lord Lock, Lock Enterprises Ltd
DAA would like to thank you for your professional work taking care of our main site server migration. It is very reassuring to know we have good people to reply on when needed. All seem to be working 100%.
Eli Huttner, Double-Alpha Academy B.V.
I contacted Holbi a few months ago as I was having some problems with a web-store I had purchased through a Norwegian IT firm. Holbi offered me help right away at a very reasonable price and I found the service to be truly excellent.As I got absolutely no help from the Norwegian firm who had charged me a great deal of money for a store that was not functioning very well, I decided to move everything to Holbi and ordered a complete new store through the very safe Trueloaded system.I was amazed at the low price for a whole new store with all the functions I needed, and true to their word, they delivered a product I am 100% satisfied with.I will continue to work closely with Holbi and add features to my store as my business grows.Sales have already increased by approx. 75% since making the move to Holbi.
Anette Thorud,
On average it took someone 7 minutes to load an order received on our Zen cart based store to Sage accounts. With our number of orders per day increasing rapidly and our stock of adhesive tapes increasing to over 500 we needed a solution to import the orders from Zen cart to Sage on the fly. That is where DataLink Ltd. UK stepped in with a complete solution tailored to our needs. We had the solution installed , tested and working in a matter of hours from first contact with DataLink, who were the only company to respond with a solution. It has saved our company hundreds of man hours and allows us to get on with running the company. We can highly recommend this product to anyone who uses online stores and Sage accounts
Alan Miles,
Your service was great, and I thank you for your service. I will definitely ask for your assistance in the near future.
Mr. Altimimi, Canada
I know that our client has been a bit of a fuss but I thought I would like to say how pleased I am with my Holbi's Project Manager response to the whole situation and how impressed I am with the design skills. Please thank the team for me.
Andrew Knutt, ADK Ltd
