Distribution Company Ecommerce Website Design Experts

Our e-commerce web developers have built custom websites for distribution companies and other industries for more than 18 years.

Developing effective ecommerce websites for distributors starts with understanding the nature of their e-commerce business. We talk to you about a lot of things, including your history running your distribution company ecommerce business, the platforms you've used to sell online, the quality of your product data, how your distributors interact with your brand, what functionality you need, and how you handle your orders.

Knowing this lets us make informed recommendations about the best e-commerce platform for your distributors. The selection of the best platform for your specific needs is critical when developing a new distributor ecommerce website or redesigning an existing distribution company e-commerce website.

It is important to begin distribution company ecommerce web development projects with an understanding of the business goals. We'll help you decide what metrics to use to measure the success of your distribution company online store, whether you use our ecommerce development company or a different web developer. This will help set expectations throughout the scope of the distributor ecommerce project to ensure you receive the best website for your storefront.

Even after your distributor ecommerce website is designed, we'll be here to help with optional distribution company digital marketing and website maintenance!

The Best Ecommerce Platforms for Distribution Company Websites

If you're an e-commerce distribution company, we need to know what your website's goals are. There is no single e-commerce platform that is perfect for all distribution company websites.

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

Distributor WooCommerce Web Design Services

WordPress is the most popular content management system for distribution company websites. When you run an ecommerce website with WordPress, you'll probably need a WooCommerce web designer for distribution companies.

Our WooCommerce web development team has experience helping new and existing distribution companies get started with WooCommerce.

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

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for distributor web design projects that require a custom designed theme, but are working on a limited budget. We have our own internally developed WooCommerce theme, based on Understrap, which is a great starting point for a custom-designed distributor WooCommerce web site. Shopify or BigCommerce theme development can be more expensive for distribution company.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for distribution companies with an existing WordPress website. When you like the look and feel of your content-based website, why spend time and money redesigning it just to add ecommerce?
  • The distribution companies 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. 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 distribution companies that want a product builder should consider WooCommerce. It is simply easier to develop a custom product builder in WordPress than most other platforms. Don't worry though, there are third-party apps for distribution company websites running BigCommerce or Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify or BigCommerce.

Distributor Shopify Web Design Services

Shopify is the most popular SaaS e-commerce platform. To run an e-commerce website using Shopify you will likely be looking for a Shopify website designer for distribution companies.

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

Here are some reasons our ecommerce developers like Shopify:

  • We recommend Shopify for distributors interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. Shopify allows you to run an ecommerce business for your distribution company without the hassle of constantly updating plugins or software versions.
  • When distribution 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, Shopify apps often have monthly fees that really add up, in comparison to the less expensive WordPress plugin options.
  • We recommend Shopify for distribution companies that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing initiatives. 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.

Distributor BigCommerce Web Development Services

BigCommerce is arguably the most flexible web-based ecommerce platform available for distribution companies due to its robust API functionality. If you want to run an ecommerce site with BigCommerce you'll probably need a distribution company BigCommerce web designer.

We've helped startups and existing e-commerce businesses for distribution companies build out and improve their online stores.

Here are a few reasons our e-commerce web developers often recommend BigCommerce:

  • We recommend BigCommerce for distribution companies interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. An advantage of a hosted e-commerce platform is you don't have to worry about updating it like you do with WordPress and WooCommerce.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for extensive content-based websites that don't support ecommerce. We can use a "headless e-commerce" approach for your distribution company, which is the integration of a platform like BigCommerce through APIs and custom web programming to your legacy website.
  • We recommend BigCommerce because of their robust API, which is exceptionally helpful for building out custom functionality in distribution company ecommerce websites.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for distributors who want a hosted ecommerce platform, but don't like Shopify.

Redesigning an Existing Distribution Company Ecommerce Website

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

You should approach distribution company e-commerce redesign projects with exceptional care. You can lose search rankings and sales if your distribution company ecommerce web designer 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 e-commerce website redesigns for distribution companies. Here are some of the important factors to consider when redesigning distributor ecommerce websites:

  • How do people reach your distribution company e-commerce website? If your online sales come mostly from organic search traffic, you'll need to maintain URL structures and use 301 redirects. It is also advisable to maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your distribution company website.
  • What do distributors think about your distribution company website? If your online shoppers aren't happy with the design of the website then it is okay to make big changes. If your conversion rates are already good, maybe you should consider being more conservative with design changes.
  • Are you moving your e-commerce platform? If so, understand the new distributor website will function differently than your previous website. You'll have to be prepared to change how you enter products, fill out orders, update customer info, and checkout.

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.

Determine the Goals of Your Distributor Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site for your distribution company. Before hiring a local ecommerce developer, you should put together a list of goals you'd like to see achieved through your distributor e-commerce web design 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 distributor ecommerce website design projects:

  • To build out an online website for a new distribution company e-commerce venture.
  • To migrate legacy distributor ecommerce systems into a new platform to improve functionality or website security.
  • Redesigning an e-commerce site in order to improve user experience (UX), reduce bounce rates, and improve conversion rates.
  • To improve the speed and responsiveness of the shopping experience.
  • To fix web accessibility problems for ADA and WCAG compliance.

We've provided such distribution company ecommerce solutions before and are excited by the prospect of helping with your new ecommerce website design! If your distribution company needs help putting together a list of goals for your ecommerce website just reach out to our team for assistance!

Questions to Ask An Ecommerce Web Designer for Distributors

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce web design company specializing in distribution companies. 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 distributor e-commerce web design service starts up. Here are some common ecommerce web development questions we get asked by e-commerce businesses in and around the local area:

  • Do you outsource ecommerce development services? At WebCitz, we don't outsource e-commerce web design services because we have our own team of Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers.
  • Do you create 301 redirects if the URLs are going to change? While WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, sometimes it can't be done. We do create 301 redirects for distributor ecommerce developments that will have a different URL structure.
  • Do you create design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design project? WebCitz makes design mockups for all distributor WooCommerce development projects, but we don't create design mockups for Shopify and BigCommerce projects that are on a restricted budget.
  • Do you help distributors select the platform for their e-commerce website? 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 distributor ecommerce web development services? WebCitz typically completes most distribution company ecommerce 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 distribution company ecommerce developer's past work or recent reviews? WebCitz has an e-commerce web design portfolio, numerous ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews to share!

How We Design the Best Distributor Ecommerce Websites

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

Multiple Discovery Phone Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your distribution 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 Meeting

If you're happy with our e-commerce agency for your distribution company, just sign the proposal, pay a down payment, and schedule your kickoff call! This will be an opportunity for everyone involved in the project to have discussions about how the project will unfold, who will be responsible for each phase of the design, and anticipated turnaround times for each element of the project.

Design Mockups or Template Search

If your future distributor ecommerce website design is in WordPress with WooCommerce, or your design budget accommodates a custom design in Shopify or BigCommerce, then the first phase of the project will begin with mocking up the design of your website. This allows everyone to be on the same page regarding the look and feel of your website before an e-commerce developer starts the build process. This is where we start helping you select a theme for your distribution company ecommerce site if you opted for a template-based approach within Shopify and BigCommerce.

Ecommerce Web Development

The development phase of your distribution company 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.

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 distribution company e-commerce storefront! You can even get a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been working on our distributor ecommerce web design process for more than 18 years. We have a tremendous amount of experience planning, designing, developing, and launching successful e-commerce web sites throughout the United States and Canada!
