The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Alabama Website

If your Alabama e-commerce company needs a platform recommendation, we need to know what your website's goals are. There is no single e-commerce platform that is perfect for all Alabama-area websites.

To deliver amazing ecommerce website development services in Alabama, we have different development teams for WooCommerce projects and Shopify projects. We can provide expert advice and service because our local ecommerce web designers specialize in their own preferred ecommerce platforms.

Alabama WooCommerce Website Design Services

WordPress is the most popular content management system in Alabama. If you want an ecommerce website using WordPress, you'll likely need a WooCommerce web designer in Alabama.

In Alabama, we help startups and e-commerce businesses get started with WooCommerce.

Here are some of the reasons our ecommerce website designers tend to recommend WooCommerce:

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for Alabama web design projects that need a custom theme, but are on a budget. We have our own custom WooCommerce theme that is based on Understrap and makes a great starting point for Alabama WooCommerce websites. Theme development for Alabama e-commerce clients is usually more expensive on Shopify.
  • If your Alabama business website runs on WordPress, we recommend WooCommerce. When you like the look and feel of your content-based website, why spend time and money redesigning it just to add ecommerce?
  • The web companies in Alabama who prefer open-source software use WooCommerce. There are no monthly fees to use WordPress or WooCommerce, except the web hosting fee to keep the website online. If you want to use Shopify, you might have to pay a lot of money for the platform, and their apps are often a lot more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce plugins.
  • Most Alabama businesses that want a product builder should consider WooCommerce. It's easier to build a product builder on WordPress than most other platforms. However, there are apps for Alabama web companies running Shopify that offer product configurators.
  • WooCommerce is great if you're in an industry that's not accepted by Shopify.

Alabama Shopify Web Development Services

Shopify is the most popular web-based ecommerce platform. If you want to run an e-commerce website using Shopify, you'll need a Shopify website designer in Alabama.

A lot of our Shopify developers have experience designing websites for new and existing businesses in Alabama.

Our ecommerce website developers love Shopify for these reasons:

  • Alabama merchants looking for a hosted ecommerce platform should check out Shopify. If you want to run an ecommerce business in Alabama, you don't have to worry about constantly updating plugins or software.
  • When Alabama web companies don't need a lot of custom functionality, we recommend Shopify. It is often more expensive to develop custom functionality within Shopify than WordPress. Additionally, you'll find getting Shopify apps often require monthly subscriptions versus one-time purchases for WordPress plugins.
  • The best e-commerce platform for Alabama businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing is Shopify. It's faster to test out a new product on a Shopify site and cycle through different apps and ideas for conversion optimization.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

Alabama ecommerce sites that don't perform, don't function, or don't convert well might need a redesign or overhaul.

You should approach Alabama e-commerce redesign projects with exceptional care. You can lose search rankings and sales if your Alabama ecommerce website developer forgets to create 301 redirects, changes your URL structure drastically, or reorganizes your product catalog.

We like to know your whole business before we start an e-commerce website redesign in Alabama. Here are some of the things to keep in mind when redesigning Alabama ecommerce sites:

  • Where can people find your Alabama e-commerce site? It's important to maintain URL structures or implement 301 redirects if most of your online sales come from organic search traffic. It's also good to keep the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Alabama website.
  • What do customers think of your Alabama website? It's okay to make big changes to your website if your online shoppers aren't happy. It's advisable to be cautious with design changes if you've already got good conversion rates.
  • Do you plan to migrate your e-commerce platform? If so, you need to understand the new Alabama website won't work like your old one did. You'll have to be prepared to change how you enter products, fill out orders, update customer info, and checkout.

Determine Goals for Your Alabama Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in Alabama. Before hiring a local ecommerce website designer, you should put together a list of goals you'd like to see achieved through the Alabama ecommerce development service. This will help keep you on track during the design of your e-commerce site, and set measurable goals for later. We've seen these goals for Alabama ecommerce website design projects:

  • To build out an online store for a new Alabama business.
  • To migrate an old Alabama ecommerce site to a new platform to improve functionality, or site security.
  • To redesign an e-commerce site to improve user experience (UX), reduce bounce rates, and improve conversion rates.
  • Improving the shopping experience by making it faster and more responsive.
  • To fix web accessibility issues for ADA and WCAG compliance.

It's great to be able to help you with your new ecommerce web development in Alabama! We can help you put together a list of goals for your Alabama e-commerce website if you need it!

Questions to Ask Your Alabama Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce website development firm in Alabama. While the answer will be valuable, even more important to you should be the manner in which the answer is given. Pay attention to whether the sales team is willing to answer detailed questions. You'll get a good idea for how things will be when the Alabama ecommerce development service starts up. Here are a few of the ecommerce web development questions we get from businesses in and around Alabama:

  • Are you outsourcing ecommerce website development? WebCitz doesn't outsource ecommerce web design because we have our own Shopify and WooCommerce developers for your Alabama website.
  • If you change URLs, do you set up 301 redirects? WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, but this is often not possible during platform migrations. For Alabama ecommerce website design, we do 301 redirects with a different URL structure.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? For Alabama WooCommerce development, WebCitz creates design mockups. But for Shopify, we only create design mockups if the budget is high enough for a fully custom Alabama ecommerce development.
  • Are you able to help Alabama businesses choose an e-commerce platform? WebCitz helps clients pick the right platform for their ecommerce websites. Generally, the answer depends on your web design and e-commerce needs.
  • How quick is the turnaround time for Alabama ecommerce web development services? WebCitz usually gets most Alabama-area ecommerce sites up and running within 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complicated ones.
  • Have you seen your Alabama ecommerce website developer's past work or recent reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce web design portfolio, numerous e-commerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Alabama Ecommerce Websites

Efforts to design an e-commerce website in Alabama should follow a formal process. Here is our process for designing Alabama ecommerce websites:

Multiple Discovery Phone Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your Alabama company, your ecommerce history, your development expectations, and your future plans. Having everyone involved in the ecommerce project voice their opinion helps minimize confusion.

Kickoff Conversation

When you're ready to move forward with our ecommerce development company for your Alabama website development, sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule a kick off call. Everybody will have a chance to talk about how the project will unfold, who will handle each stage of the design, and how long the turnaround time will be for completion.

Design Mockups or Template Selection

If your future Alabama ecommerce website design is built with WordPress and WooCommerce, or if your design budget can handle a custom design in Shopify, then the first phase of the project starts with mocking up your website. This way, everyone is on the same page about how your site will look and feel before an e-commerce developer starts. If you've chosen a template-based approach within Shopify, this is the phase where we start helping you pick a theme for your Alabama ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Website Development

The development phase of your Alabama ecommerce build will be the longest. It includes data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and more! Throughout this process, you'll have a password-protected development website to visit so you can follow along and provide comments as necessary.

Training & Launch

As soon as the ecommerce website development project is finished, we'll provide you with any training you need. We'll schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your Alabama e-commerce storefront once you're comfortable managing it. We can even share a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been improving this Alabama ecommerce web design process for more than 18 years. We have incredible experience designing, developing, and launching successful e-commerce websites throughout the United States!

Additional Services for Your Alabama Ecommerce Web Design Project

The development of the website is only one part of a successful ecommerce storefront in Alabama. Let's explore some additional services, which are completely optional, to help you get the most out of your custom Alabama e-commerce website:

  • We have an on-site video production team to help you showcase your Alabama business on the web.
