The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Stamford Website

If your Stamford e-commerce company needs a platform recommendation, we need to know what your website's goals are. There isn't one e-commerce platform that works for all Stamford businesses.

To deliver amazing ecommerce website development services in Stamford, we have different development teams for WooCommerce projects and Shopify projects. This gives our ecommerce web designers the chance to specialize in particular development environments to provide expert advice and help.

Stamford WooCommerce Web Design Services

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

We've helped startups and existing e-commerce companies get started with WooCommerce in Stamford or other parts of United States.

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. Based on Understrap, our own WooCommerce theme is a great starting point for Stamford WooCommerce web designs. Theme development within Shopify is often more expensive for Stamford e-commerce clients.
  • If your Stamford business already has a WordPress site, we recommend WooCommerce. It doesn't make sense to spend a lot of time and money redesigning your content-based website just to add ecommerce.
  • WooCommerce is a great open-source option for Stamford web companies. You don't have to pay a monthly fee to use WordPress or WooCommerce. Alternatively, Shopify has high monthly fees to use the platform and their apps are often much more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce plugins.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for most Stamford businesses that require a product builder. It is simply easier to develop a custom product builder in WordPress than most other platforms. However, there are apps for Stamford web companies running Shopify that offer product configurators.
  • If you're in an industry that's not supported by Shopify, try WooCommerce.

Stamford Shopify Web Development Services

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

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

Here are some reasons our ecommerce web developers like Shopify:

  • Stamford merchants looking for a hosted ecommerce platform should check out Shopify. If you want to run an ecommerce business in Stamford, you don't have to worry about constantly updating plugins or software.
  • We recommend Shopify for Stamford web companies without a lot of custom functionality requirements. It is often more expensive to develop custom functionality within Shopify than WordPress. Additionally, Shopify apps often have monthly fees versus WooCommerce plugins that are more affordable.
  • Shopify is a great option for Stamford e-commerce businesses that need fast turnaround times for marketing and development. For testing out a new product, it's usually faster to set up a Shopify website and go through various apps and design ideas to test conversion rate optimization.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

Every Stamford e-commerce redesign project deserves exceptional care. You can lose search rankings and sales if your Stamford ecommerce website developer forgets to create 301 redirects, changes your URL structure drastically, or reorganizes your product catalog.

Stamford ecommerce website redesign starts with a thorough review of your ecommerce business to understand the big picture. Here are some of the important factors to consider when redesigning Stamford ecommerce websites:

  • How do people reach your Stamford 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. Maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and content throughout the development of your Stamford website.
  • What do customers think about your Stamford website? Making big changes to your website is okay if your online shoppers aren't happy. Consider being more conservative with design changes if your conversion rates are already good.
  • Are you migrating e-commerce platforms? It will work different than your old website, if that's the case. Things like entering products, fulfilling orders, updating customer info, and going through check out will be different.

Determine Goals for Your Stamford Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in Stamford. You should make a list of the goals you'd like to see achieved by a Stamford ecommerce web designer before you hire them. This will help keep you on track during the design of your e-commerce site, and set measurable goals for later. Here are some of the goals we've seen for Stamford ecommerce website design projects:

  • To build out an online website for a new Stamford e-commerce venture.
  • To migrate an legacy Stamford ecommerce systems into a new platform to improve functionality or website security.
  • To redesign an existing Stamford e-commerce website in the same platform to improve user experience (UX), reduce bounce rates, and improve conversion rates.
  • To make shopping faster and the website more responsive.
  • To fix web accessibility problems for ADA and WCAG compliance.

Questions to Ask Your Stamford Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce web development firm in Stamford. Even though the answer is important, how it's delivered is more important. Pay attention to whether the sales team is willing to answer detailed questions. If you do this now, you'll get an idea of what to expect in future communication. Here are some common ecommerce web design questions we get asked by e-commerce businesses in and around Connecticut:

  • Do you outsource ecommerce website design services? WebCitz does not outsource ecommerce development services because we have our own team of Shopify and WooCommerce developers for your Stamford e-commerce website.
  • When the URLs change, do you create 301 redirects? While WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, sometimes it can't be done. We create 301 redirects for Stamford ecommerce web developments that have different URL structures.
  • Do you make design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design? WebCitz creates design mockups for all Stamford WooCommerce developments, but we only create a design mockup for Shopify projects that have a higher budget for a fully custom Stamford ecommerce website development.
  • Can you help Stamford business owners choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz helps Stamford clients choose the right ecommerce platform. Typically, the answer is based on the web design and ecommerce requirements.
  • What's the turnaround time for Stamford ecommerce web design services? WebCitz typically completes most Stamford-area ecommerce development projects within 3-4 months, but they can take up to 9-12 months for highly complex e-commerce websites.
  • Does your Stamford ecommerce web developer have a design portfolio or client reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce website development portfolio, numerous ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews to share!

How We Design the Best Stamford Ecommerce Websites

Efforts to design an e-commerce website in Stamford should follow a formal process. Here's how we make Stamford ecommerce websites:

1.) Multiple Discovery Phone Calls

There are usually multiple discovery calls to learn more about your Stamford company, your history with ecommerce, 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.

2.) Kickoff Meeting

If you feel confident about our ecommerce web design company for your Stamford website development, go ahead and sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule your kick off call! There will be a chance for everyone involved in the project to have a discussion about how the project will unfold, who will be responsible for each stage of the design, and how long the turnaround time will be for each phase.

3.) Design Mockups or Template Search

We'll start with mockups for your Stamford ecommerce website design if it's built in WordPress with WooCommerce or if your budget allows a custom design built in Shopify. This helps everyone agree on the look and feel of your website before an e-commerce developer starts working on it. Alternatively, if you selected a template-based approach within Shopify, this is the phase where we start helping you select a theme for your Stamford ecommerce site.

4.) Ecommerce Web Design

The longest part of your Stamford ecommerce build will be the development. Data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and more! Throughout the process, you'll be able to follow along via a password-protected development website.

5.) Website Training & Launch

Once the ecommerce development project is close to completion, we'll start working with you to provide any necessary training. When you are comfortable managing the ecommerce website, we'll schedule a time that works for everyone involved to launch your future Stamford e-commerce storefront! We can even share a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been optimizing our Connecticut ecommerce web development process for more than 18 years. We have incredible experience designing, developing, and launching successful e-commerce websites throughout United States!

Additional Services for Your Stamford Ecommerce Web Design Project

WebCitz helped the Oshkosh Area Humane Society with our new website and they were great to work with. Responsive, professional and affordable. I think the biggest perk for us was having someone local we could talk to for assistance instead of long wait times. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to start up or revamp their website.
