California Ecommerce Website Design Experts

Our ecommerce website designers have more than 18 years of experience building custom websites for California-area businesses.

Understanding the nature of your California ecommerce business is key to developing an effective ecommerce website. We take the time to discuss with you a number of topics, including your history running your California ecommerce business, the platforms you've used to sell online, the quality of your product data, how customers interact with your brand, what functionality you need to be successful, and how you handle order fulfillment.

Having this knowledge allows us to make informed recommendations regarding the best e-commerce platform for your California-based online business. The selection of the best platform for your specific needs is critical when developing a new California ecommerce website or redesigning an existing California e-commerce website.

It is important to begin California ecommerce website development projects with an understanding of the business goals. We'll help you determine the best metrics to use to gauge the success of your California ecommerce web design service, regardless if you choose a local California e-commerce developer or a national ecommerce website design firm. It will help set expectations throughout the California ecommerce web development so you get the best website.

After your California ecommerce website development service is complete, we'll even be available to offer California digital marketing and website support services!

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your California Website

In order to recommend the best ecommerce platform for your California business, we'll need to know what your goals are. There isn't one e-commerce platform that's perfect for every California website.

To deliver exceptional ecommerce web development services in California, we have separate development teams for WooCommerce projects than for Shopify and BigCommerce projects. This allows our local ecommerce website developers to specialize in a particular development environment to provide expert advice and service.

California WooCommerce Web Design Services

WordPress is the most popular content management system for California websites. To run an ecommerce website using WordPress you will likely be looking for a WooCommerce website developer in California.

In California, 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 California web design projects that need a custom theme, but are on a budget. Based on Understrap, our own WooCommerce theme is a great starting point for California WooCommerce web designs. Theme development for California e-commerce clients is usually more expensive on Shopify and BigCommerce.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for California businesses with an existing WordPress website. If you are happy with the look and feel of your content-based website, why invest the time and money into redesigning that website just to add ecommerce?
  • We recommend WooCommerce for California web companies who prefer open-source software. There are no monthly fees to use WordPress or WooCommerce, except the web hosting fee to keep the website online. Alternatively, Shopify and BigCommerce have high monthly fees to use the platform and their apps are often much more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce plugins.
  • Most California businesses that want a product builder should consider WooCommerce. It is simply easier to develop a custom product builder in WordPress than most other platforms. However, there are apps for California web companies running BigCommerce or Shopify that offer product configurators.
  • WooCommerce is great if you're in an industry that's not accepted by Shopify or BigCommerce.

California Shopify Website Design Services

Shopify is the most popular web-based ecommerce platform. To run an e-commerce website using Shopify you will likely be looking for a Shopify web designer in California.

Our Shopify web development team has experience designing websites for new and existing businesses throughout California within the Shopify platform.

Here are some of the reasons our ecommerce developers often recommend Shopify:

  • We recommend Shopify for California merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in California without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • We recommend Shopify for California web companies without a lot of custom functionality requirements. It's more expensive to develop custom functionality in Shopify than WordPress. Additionally, you'll find getting Shopify apps often require monthly subscriptions versus one-time purchases for WordPress plugins.
  • Shopify is a great option for California e-commerce businesses that need fast turnaround times for marketing and development. It is often faster to set up a Shopify website to test out a new product and cycle through various apps and ideas to test conversion optimization strategies.

California BigCommerce Web Design Services

BigCommerce is arguably the most flexible web-based ecommerce platform available in California due to its robust API functionality. To run an ecommerce website using BigCommerce you will likely be looking for a BigCommerce web developer in California.

Our BigCommerce web development team has experience helping startup and existing California-area ecommerce businesses build out and improve their online websites.

Our e-commerce website developers recommend BigCommerce for a few reasons:

  • We recommend BigCommerce for online companies in California interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. If you use a hosted e-commerce platform, you don't have to worry about updating it like you would with WordPress and WooCommerce.
  • We recommend BigCommerce as an external ecommerce platform for legacy websites that can't fully migrate their website to a new platform. We can build out a "headless e-commerce" solution for your California business, which is the process of bridging a platform like BigCommerce through APIs and custom web programming to your existing website.
  • We recommend BigCommerce because of their robust API, which is exceptionally helpful for building out custom functionality in California ecommerce websites.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for California merchants who want a hosted ecommerce platform, but don't like Shopify.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

It might be time to rethink your California ecommerce website if you're not happy with its performance, functionality, or conversion rate.

Take your e-commerce redesign in California seriously. For instance, you may lose search rankings and online sales if your California ecommerce web designer forgets to create 301 redirects, drastically changes your URL structure, or reorganizes your product catalog.

Before starting California e-commerce website redesign projects, we like to thoroughly review your ecommerce business to understand the big picture. Here are some of the important factors to consider when redesigning California ecommerce websites:

  • How do people reach your California e-commerce website? If most online sales are coming from organic search traffic it will be critical to maintain URL structures or implement 301 redirects. It's also good to keep the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your California website.
  • What do customers think of your California website? It's okay to make big changes to your website if your online shoppers aren't happy. Consider being more conservative with design changes if your conversion rates are already good.
  • Do you plan to migrate your e-commerce platform? If so, understand the new California website will function differently than your previous website. The way you enter products, fulfill orders, update customer information, and go through the checkout will be different.

Determine Goals for Your California Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building an ecommerce website in California can be expensive. Make a list of the things you want your California e-commerce website to accomplish before you hire a developer. This will help keep you on track throughout the design of your e-commerce website, and set measurable objectives for later. The most common goals we've seen for California ecommerce website design projects include:

  • To build out an online website for a new California e-commerce venture.
  • To migrate an legacy California ecommerce systems into a new platform to improve functionality or website security.
  • To redesign an existing California e-commerce website in the same platform 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 development in California! Let us help you put together a list of goals for your ecommerce website if your California e-commerce company needs help!

Questions to Ask Your California Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask your California ecommerce web development firm a lot of questions. While the answer will be valuable, how it's delivered should be even more important. Pay attention to how receptive the sales team is to being asked detailed questions. This will provide insight into future communication as the California ecommerce web design service gets started. Here are some common ecommerce website design questions we get asked by e-commerce businesses in and around California:

  • Do you outsource ecommerce development services? WebCitz does not outsource ecommerce web development services because we have our own team of Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers for your California e-commerce 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 California ecommerce website development, we do 301 redirects with a different URL structure.
  • Do you make design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design? For California WooCommerce development, WebCitz creates design mockups. But for Shopify and BigCommerce, we only create design mockups if the budget is high enough for a fully custom California ecommerce web design.
  • Do you help California business owners select the platform for their e-commerce website? WebCitz does help California clients select the platform for their ecommerce website. The answer is typically dependent upon the web design and ecommerce functionality requirements.
  • How quick is the turnaround time for California ecommerce development services? WebCitz typically completes most California-area ecommerce web development projects within 3-4 months, but they can take up to 9-12 months for highly complex e-commerce websites.
  • Have you seen your California ecommerce website developer's past work or recent reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce web design portfolio, numerous ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews to share!

How We Design the Best California Ecommerce Websites

If you want a new e-commerce website, you should expect California ecommerce website design firms to have a formal process for how they do it. Here's how we design California ecommerce sites:

Multiple Discovery Calls

There are typically multiple discovery calls to learn more about your California company, your history with ecommerce, your development expectations, and your future goals. This helps ensure everyone working on your project has an opportunity to voice their opinion, which goes a long way to minimizing confusion throughout the ecommerce project.

Kickoff Meeting

If you feel confident about our ecommerce web development company for your California website development, go ahead and sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule your 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 California ecommerce website design is built with WordPress and WooCommerce, or if your design budget can handle a custom design in Shopify or BigCommerce, then the first phase of the project starts with mocking up your website. This helps everyone agree on the look and feel of your website before an e-commerce developer starts working on it. If you've chosen a template-based approach within Shopify and BigCommerce, this is the phase where we start helping you pick a theme for your California ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Development

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

Website Training & Launch

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

We've been improving this California ecommerce development process for more than 18 years. We've created, designed, developed, and launched successful e-commerce sites across the United States!

Additional Services for Your California Ecommerce Web Design Project

Launching an ecommerce website in California involves more than just building the site. Here are some other services, which are completely optional, to help you get the most out of your California e-commerce site:

  • We have an on-site video production team to help with the creation of multimedia to showcase your California web-based business.
  • We have a digital marketing and search engine optimization team to help you rank your ecommerce products higher in California search results, or nationwide.

WebCitz designed our Alo Health website and did such a great job of walking us step-by-step through the process, knowing the tech world was not a strength of ours. We love that we are able to change content whenever we want, but if we run into problems, they are a quick email away. They have been responsive, reliable and efficient. Thanks, WebCitz!

What can I say about this company? These people that work there? Unbelievable!! It doesn't matter when or why you call, they will help you. The other part of that statement is: I never have to call them! They made a web site for us that works 24/7. But if I do call they actually take care of it right then. ... great bunch of guys...Southwest Radio Church really appreciates you!!

Corey was extremely helpful and spent a considerable amount of time going over my difficulties with a newly created website put together by someone else. I was under a very stressful deadline and he was extremely considerate and helpful. He managed to fix the problems that I was experiencing with my website. I had reached out to a number of website developers for help but only heard back from Webcity and Corey got back to me within minutes!
