Looking for a reliable BigCommerce development agency that won't abandon your project before it is complete? We have highly experienced BigCommerce developers, working within our own offices, ready to take the lead!
As a BigCommerce Certified Partner, we've worked on numerous BigCommerce websites.
For instance, one of our recently launched BigCommerce developments was a headless ecommerce website for DecorOutdoor.com. In a headless approach, the frontend website exists outside of the BigCommerce platform. For that project, we developed a Nuxt.js frontend and Laravel backend, both of which extensively communicate with BigCommerce APIs. This allowed us to provide progressive web app support, lightning-fast product filtering, and a frontend web design that passes Google's Core Web Vitals.
Here are some of our web developers' capabilities, visible in our portfolio, within the BigCommerce platform:

If you're jumping into a new ecommerce venture, we'd love to be part of your journey! We'll walk you through all the best parts of BigCommerce, from its ample selection of marketplace themes and apps, to configuring your store, adding custom products, fulfilling new orders, and much more!
The BigCommerce platform is great for new ecommerce websites, but before settling on BigCommerce it would be wise to discuss your project's requirements and goals with our team. This isn't to say BigCommerce can't handle most projects, but if your functionality or data requirements are far outside the normal scope of BigCommerce it would be prudent to discover that now.
Our ecommerce developers are highly skilled in BigCommerce, Shopify, WooCommerce and Magento, allowing us to provide an unbiased opinion on the best platform for your business.
When you start a new BigCommerce development project with WebCitz, you can rest assured we'll have options to help you from start to finish on your new ecommerce web design project!
Let's explore the two options we have for designing your new BigCommerce website:
Let's be honest, not every ecommerce website design project needs to be designed from the ground up. It is perfectly normal to start a new BigCommerce design project by installing and customizing a third-party theme. Our developers would be happy to help you select a BigCommerce theme, install it on your storefront, and customize it to match your branding.
For ecommerce businesses with larger budgets and expectations, our BigCommerce web designers can mock up a fully custom design to match your every expectation. Once approved, our BigCommerce designers will build a custom BigCommerce Stencil theme to match your design. This option provides faster page loads, cleaner source code, and less app conflicts.
We have ample experience migrating ecommerce businesses from Magento, Shopify, or WooCommerce into the BigCommerce platform. That said, the most challenging type of ecommerce development project is the migration of a client's existing ecommerce website into a new platform.
There are numerous factors to consider in a BigCommerce website design, including:
These are all great questions to consider, and are often brought up by our team during the discovery process. Our BigCommerce designers would enjoy the opportunity to discuss your project when you have time!
There is nothing better than refreshing the design of an ecommerce website! This is the perfect opportunity for you to improve the look and feel of your website, fix user experience issues, and potentially even increase your conversion rate in the process!
Let's explore the three types of BigCommerce redesign projects we take on:
If your website was created in BigCommerce prior to November 2016, you may still be running a legacy Blueprint theme. You will eventually need to purchase a different BigCommerce theme or hire a web design agency to develop a custom Stencil theme for your website.
The most cost-effective way to refresh the look and feel of your BigCommerce website is to swap out your theme. We can help you find a new BigCommerce theme, install it on your website, and configure it to match your desired look and feel.
If your budget allows, and your design expectations are high, we can create you a completely custom BigCommerce Stencil theme unique to your business. Although the cost is significantly higher, there are many benefits from this approach including faster page loads, improved user experience, cleaner source code, less app conflicts, and much more!
We have considerable experience extending the core functionality of BigCommerce. As long as you can clearly explain the functionality you require, it doesn't matter how complex it is to develop. Our in-house BigCommerce consultants and web programming experts are ready to help you.
Here are some of the ways we've extended BigCommerce in the past:
The most common complaint we've heard from Magento merchants migrating into BigCommerce was the loss of Magento's product, attribute, and category management functionality.
Do you have a large product database with dependent custom options, nested configurable attributes, complex product relationships or other non-standard product data structures? If so, we might be able to help ease your transition into BigCommerce. We've developed a proprietary Product Information Manager (PIM) within Laravel to help new BigCommerce merchants regain some of the product, attribute, and category management functionality left behind in Magento.
The decision to pursue a headless BigCommerce project should not be taken lightly. These projects typically cost upwards of $75,000 to design and develop, simply due to extensive amount of work involved in recreating the ecommerce functionality within your custom frontend.
Why would you even consider a headless approach to ecommerce? Here are a few reasons:
We are more than happy to help you explore the potential for a headless approach to your BigCommerce development project.
Before selecting a BigCommerce company, be sure to ask the following questions:
You should gauge the level of knowledge and experience the developers have within BigCommerce. We recommend you choose an agency based on the depth of experience they have manipulating the BigCommerce platform, not just on how many cheap BigCommerce developments they've launched.
We want you to be happy with your BigCommerce website design, regardless of the agency you choose to handle your project. Here are a few suggestions we have to help improve your BigCommerce experience.
If you do you due diligence before selecting an ecommerce developer, you will likely find yourself launching an ecommerce website within your anticipated timeframe and budget.
WebCitz has more than 17 years of experience developing successful ecommerce websites. We've launched hundreds of ecommerce websites in that time, using platforms like osCommerce, CubeCart, X-Cart, Magento 1.x, Magento 2.x, WooCommerce, Shopify, and BigCommerce.

We apply our standard ecommerce website design process to all BigCommerce projects. Let's go through some of the basic points:
Discovery Call. The first step in the process is to have a conversation with you to determine the scope of your project, your understanding of the BigCommerce platform, and the unique functionality requirements you have. This will allow us to put together a detailed quote for your project.
Kick Off Call. After approving the development proposal we will schedule a kickoff call. This will help get everyone on the same page, including your project's stakeholders and our project managers, graphic designers and ecommerce developers.
Mock Up Approval. Within a few weeks of the kickoff conversation you should receive mockups for the design of your project. Don't be afraid to ask for web design changes - we value feedback and would appreciate your honest opinion during this phase of the project.
Development Process. After the mock ups are approved the project will be handed off to our BigCommerce development team. This is the longest phase of the project, but you will be able to follow along through your password-protected BigCommerce staging website.
Website Launch. After the development work has been completed, and it has passed your inspection, we'll work with you to plan out an appropriate launch window. This is also a great opportunity to request BigCommerce training if you've not yet become familiar with the admin area.
We are often hired by clients for our deep understanding of BigCommerce. That said, we are always looking to augment our ecommerce team with additional experienced BigCommerce professionals!
