Flower Shop Ecommerce Website Design Agencies

Our e-commerce developers have more than 18 years of experience building custom websites for flower shops.

Developing effective ecommerce websites for florists starts with understanding the nature of their e-commerce business. We take the time to discuss with you a number of topics, including your history running your flower shop ecommerce business, the platforms you've used to sell online, the quality of your product data, how florists 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 florists. The selection of the best platform for your specific needs is critical when developing a new florist ecommerce website or redesigning an existing flower shop e-commerce website.

Ecommerce web development projects for florists need to start with a clear understanding of the business goals. We'll help you decide what metrics to use to measure the success of your flower shop online store, whether you use our ecommerce development company or a different web developer. We'll use this information to set expectations on your florist ecommerce project so you get the best website for your storefront.

After your florist ecommerce web design service is complete, we'll even be available to offer flower shop digital marketing and website support services!

The Best Ecommerce Platforms for Flower Shop Websites

In order to recommend the best ecommerce platform for your flower shop, we'll need to know what your goals are. There is no single e-commerce platform that is perfect for all flower shop websites.

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

Florist WooCommerce Web Design Services

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

We've helped florists get started with WooCommerce for their flower shop.

Here are some of the reasons our ecommerce designers tend to recommend WooCommerce:

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for florist 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 florist WooCommerce web site. Ecommerce theme development within Shopify or BigCommerce is often more expensive for flower shops.
  • If your flower shop uses WordPress for its main website, 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 flower shops. 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.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for most flower shops 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 flower shops running BigCommerce or Shopify that offer product configurators.
  • If you're in an industry that's not supported by Shopify or BigCommerce, try WooCommerce.

Florist 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 website designer for flower shops.

Our Shopify web development team has experience designing websites for new and existing flower shops within the Shopify platform.

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

  • Florists looking for a hosted ecommerce platform should check out Shopify. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business for your flower shop without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • For flower shops that don't need a lot of custom features, we recommend Shopify. 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.
  • We recommend Shopify for flower shops 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.

Florist BigCommerce Website Design Services

Because of its API, BigCommerce is probably the most flexible web-based ecommerce platform available for flower shops. To run an ecommerce website using BigCommerce you will likely be looking for a BigCommerce website designer for your flower shop.

Our BigCommerce web development team has experience helping startup and existing flower shop ecommerce websites build out and improve their storefronts.

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

  • We recommend BigCommerce for flower shops interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. The benefit of a hosted e-commerce platform is you don't have to worry about regularly installing updates, like you'd find with WordPress and WooCommerce.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for extensive content-based websites that don't support ecommerce. We can implement "headless e-commerce" for your flower shop, which is the process of integrating a platform like BigCommerce through APIs and custom web programming.
  • We recommend BigCommerce because of their robust API, which is exceptionally helpful for building out custom functionality in flower shop ecommerce websites.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for florists who want a hosted ecommerce platform, but don't like Shopify.

Redesigning an Existing Flower Shop Ecommerce Website

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

You should approach flower shop e-commerce redesign projects with exceptional care. For instance, you may lose search rankings and online sales if your flower shop ecommerce web designer forgets to create 301 redirects, drastically changes your URL structure, or reorganizes your product catalog.

Before starting flower shop 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 florist ecommerce websites:

  • Where can people find your flower shop e-commerce site? If your online sales come mostly from organic search traffic, you'll need to maintain URL structures and use 301 redirects. Maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and content throughout the development of your flower shop website.
  • What do florists think of your flower shop 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 migrating e-commerce platforms? If so, you need to understand the new florist website won't work like your old one did. Things like entering products, fulfilling orders, updating customer info, and going through check out will be different.

Determine the Goals of Your Florist Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building an ecommerce website for your flower shop can be expensive. Before hiring a local ecommerce developer, you should put together a list of goals you'd like to see achieved through your florist e-commerce web design service. 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 florist ecommerce website design projects include:

  • To build out an online website for a new flower shop e-commerce venture.
  • To migrate an old florist ecommerce site to a new platform to improve functionality, or site security.
  • Redesigning an e-commerce site in order 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 issues for ADA and WCAG compliance.

We've provided such flower shop ecommerce solutions before and are excited by the prospect of helping with your new ecommerce website design! If your flower shop 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 Florists

You should ask your flower shop ecommerce web design company a lot of questions. While the answer will be valuable, even more important to you should be the manner in which the answer is given. Pay attention to how receptive the sales team is to being asked detailed questions. This will provide insight into future communication as the florist e-commerce web design service gets started. Here are some common ecommerce web development questions we get asked by e-commerce businesses in and around the local area:

  • Are you outsourcing ecommerce developments? At WebCitz, we don't outsource e-commerce web design services because we have our own team of Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers.
  • When the URLs change, do you create 301 redirects? WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, but this is often not possible during platform migrations. We do create 301 redirects for florist ecommerce developments that will have a different URL structure.
  • Do you create design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design project? WebCitz creates design mockups for all florist WooCommerce developments, but we only create a design mockup for Shopify and BigCommerce projects that have a higher budget for a fully custom flower shop ecommerce web development.
  • Are you able to help florists choose an e-commerce platform? WebCitz helps flower shops choose the right ecommerce platform. Typically, the answer is based on the web design and ecommerce requirements.
  • How quick is the turnaround time for florist ecommerce web development services? WebCitz typically completes most flower shop ecommerce development projects within 3-4 months, but they can take up to 9-12 months for highly complex e-commerce websites.
  • Does your flower shop ecommerce developer have a design portfolio or client 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 Florist Ecommerce Websites

If you want a new e-commerce website, you should expect ecommerce web design agencies for flower shops to have a formal process for how they do it. Here is our process for designing flower shop ecommerce websites:

Multiple Discovery Calls

There are typically multiple discovery calls to learn more about your flower shop, 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 Conversation

If you're happy with our e-commerce agency for your flower shop, just sign the proposal, pay a down payment, and schedule your kickoff 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.

Design Mockups or Template Selection

If your future florist 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. Alternatively, if you selected a template-based approach within Shopify and BigCommerce, this is the phase where we start helping you select a theme for your flower shop ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Website Development

The longest part of your flower shop ecommerce build will be the development. 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

Once the ecommerce web design 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 flower shop e-commerce storefront! We can even share a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been optimizing our florist ecommerce web development process for more than 18 years. We've created, designed, developed, and launched successful e-commerce sites across the United States and Canada!
