The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your New Haven Website

To recommend the best ecommerce platform for your New Haven e-commerce company we will need to talk with you about your website's objectives. There isn't one e-commerce platform that works for all New Haven businesses.

For WooCommerce and Shopify projects, we have separate development teams. We can provide expert advice and service because our local ecommerce web designers specialize in their own preferred ecommerce platforms.

New Haven WooCommerce Web Design Services

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

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

These are some of the reasons our ecommerce website designers like WooCommerce:

  • If you need a custom theme, but have a limited budget, we recommend WordPress or WooCommerce. We have our own custom WooCommerce theme that is based on Understrap and makes a great starting point for New Haven WooCommerce websites. Theme development for New Haven e-commerce clients is usually more expensive on Shopify.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for New Haven 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?
  • The web companies in New Haven who prefer open-source software use WooCommerce. You don't have to pay a monthly fee for WordPress or WooCommerce, just for web hosting. As an alternative, Shopify has expensive monthly fees (depending on your plan) and their apps are often more expensive than WooCommerce or WordPress plugins.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for most New Haven businesses that require a product builder. It's easier to build a product builder on WordPress than most other platforms. However, there are apps for New Haven web companies running Shopify that offer product configurators.
  • If you're in an industry that's not supported by Shopify, try WooCommerce.

New Haven Shopify Web Development Services

Shopify is the most popular SaaS e-commerce platform. If you want to run an e-commerce website in New Haven, you'll probably need a Shopify website designer.

With our Shopify web development company, we can design a website for a new or existing business in Connecticut that runs on the Shopify platform.

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

  • We recommend Shopify for New Haven merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in New Haven without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • When New Haven web companies don't need a lot of custom functionality, we recommend Shopify. The cost of developing custom functionality with Shopify is higher than with WordPress. Additionally, Shopify apps often have monthly fees versus WooCommerce plugins that are more affordable.
  • Shopify is a great option for New Haven e-commerce businesses that need fast turnaround times for marketing and development. 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

If you are unhappy with the performance, functionality, or conversion rate of your New Haven ecommerce website it might be time to think about a redesign or rehaul of your website.

Every New Haven e-commerce redesign project deserves exceptional care. It's possible to lose search rankings and online sales if your website developer forgets to create 301 redirects, completely restructures your URLs, or improperly reorganizes your product catalog.

We like to know your whole business before we start an e-commerce website redesign in New Haven. Here are some of the important factors to consider when redesigning New Haven ecommerce websites:

  • Where can people find your New Haven 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 New Haven website.
  • What do customers think about your New Haven website? Making big changes to your website is okay 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, understand the new New Haven 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 New Haven Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building out an ecommerce website in New Haven can be an expensive project. You should make a list of the goals you'd like to see achieved by a New Haven ecommerce website designer before you hire them. Keeping track of measurable goals will help you keep your e-commerce site progressing in the right direction. We've seen these goals for New Haven ecommerce website design projects:

  • To build out an online website for a new New Haven e-commerce venture.
  • To migrate an old New Haven 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 problems for ADA and WCAG compliance.

Our Connecticut ecommerce development services have helped other businesses before, so we're excited to help with your new ecommerce website! We can help you put together a list of goals for your New Haven e-commerce website if you need it!

Questions to Ask Your New Haven Ecommerce Web Designer

There are numerous questions to ask your New Haven ecommerce web development company before making a hiring decision. Even though the answer is important, how it's delivered is more important. Check to see how receptive the sales team is to detailed questions. You'll get a good idea for how things will be when the New Haven ecommerce web design service starts up. Here are some common ecommerce development questions we get asked by e-commerce businesses in and around Connecticut:

  • Are you outsourcing ecommerce web development? WebCitz doesn't outsource ecommerce website development because we have our own Shopify and WooCommerce developers for your New Haven website.
  • If you change URLs, do you set up 301 redirects? While WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, sometimes it can't be done. We create 301 redirects for New Haven ecommerce web designs that have different URL structures.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? For New Haven WooCommerce development, WebCitz creates design mockups. But for Shopify, we only create design mockups if the budget is high enough for a fully custom New Haven ecommerce website design.
  • Do you help New Haven business owners select the platform for their e-commerce website? WebCitz does help New Haven clients select the platform for their ecommerce website. Generally, the answer depends on your web design and e-commerce needs.
  • Can you tell me how fast New Haven ecommerce development works? WebCitz usually gets New Haven ecommerce web development projects done in 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complex e-commerce websites.
  • Does your New Haven ecommerce website developer have a design portfolio or client reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce web design portfolio, numerous e-commerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best New Haven Ecommerce Websites

You should expect New Haven ecommerce development companies to have a formal process for how a new e-commerce website will be developed. Here's how we make New Haven ecommerce websites:

Discovery Phone Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your New Haven company, your ecommerce history, your development expectations, and your future plans. 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 Conversation

When you're ready to move forward with our ecommerce website development agency for your New Haven 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 Search

We'll start with mockups for your New Haven ecommerce website design if it's built in WordPress with WooCommerce or if your budget allows a custom design built in Shopify. 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 New Haven ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Development

The longest phase of your New Haven ecommerce build will be the development process. It includes data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and more! A password-protected development website lets you follow along.

Website Launch (Plus Website Training!)

Once the ecommerce website design project is close to completion, we'll start working with you to provide any necessary training. We'll schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your New Haven 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 optimizing our Connecticut ecommerce development process for more than 18 years. We have incredible experience designing, developing, and launching successful e-commerce websites throughout United States!
