The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Hawaii Website

To recommend the best ecommerce platform for your Hawaii e-commerce company we will need to talk with you about your website's objectives. There isn't one e-commerce platform that's perfect for every Hawaii website.

For WooCommerce and Shopify projects, we have separate development teams. This gives our ecommerce web designers the chance to specialize in particular development environments to provide expert advice and help.

Hawaii WooCommerce Web Design Services

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

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

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

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for Hawaii web design projects that need a custom theme, but are on a budget. We have our own internally developed WooCommerce theme, based on Understrap, which is a great starting point for a custom-designed Hawaii WooCommerce web site. Theme development within Shopify is often more expensive for Hawaii e-commerce clients.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Hawaii businesses 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 web companies in Hawaii who prefer open-source software use WooCommerce. 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 Hawaii 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 Hawaii web companies running Shopify that offer product configurators.
  • If you're in an industry that's not supported by Shopify, try WooCommerce.

Hawaii 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 in Hawaii.

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

Our ecommerce web developers love Shopify for these reasons:

  • For Hawaii merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. If you want to run an ecommerce business in Hawaii, you don't have to worry about constantly updating plugins or software.
  • We recommend Shopify for Hawaii 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.
  • We recommend Shopify for Hawaii e-commerce businesses 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.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

Take your e-commerce redesign in Hawaii seriously. 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.

Hawaii 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 Hawaii ecommerce websites:

  • How do people reach your Hawaii 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 Hawaii website.
  • What do customers think about your Hawaii website? It's okay to make big changes to your website if your online shoppers aren't happy. 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, understand the new Hawaii 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.

Determine Goals for Your Hawaii Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building out an ecommerce website in Hawaii can be an expensive project. Make a list of the things you want your Hawaii e-commerce website to accomplish before you hire a developer. Keeping track of measurable goals will help you keep your e-commerce site progressing in the right direction. Here are some of the goals we've seen for Hawaii ecommerce website design projects:

  • To build out an online website for a new Hawaii e-commerce venture.
  • To migrate an legacy Hawaii ecommerce systems into a new platform to improve functionality or website security.
  • To redesign an existing Hawaii 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.

It's great to be able to help you with your new ecommerce web design in Hawaii! If your Hawaii e-commerce company needs help putting together a list of goals for your ecommerce website just reach out to our team for assistance!

Questions to Ask Your Hawaii Ecommerce Web Designer

There are numerous questions to ask your Hawaii ecommerce development company before making a hiring decision. While the answer will be valuable, how it's delivered should be even more important. Check to see how receptive the sales team is to detailed questions. If you do this now, you'll get an idea of what to expect in future communication. Here are some common ecommerce website development questions we get asked by e-commerce businesses in and around Hawaii:

  • Do you outsource ecommerce web design services? WebCitz does not outsource ecommerce website design services because we have our own team of Shopify and WooCommerce developers for your Hawaii 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. For Hawaii ecommerce development, we do 301 redirects with a different URL structure.
  • Do you create design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design project? WebCitz creates design mockups for all Hawaii WooCommerce developments, but we only create a design mockup for Shopify projects that have a higher budget for a fully custom Hawaii ecommerce web development.
  • Do you help Hawaii business owners 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.
  • What's the turnaround time for Hawaii ecommerce website development services? WebCitz typically completes most Hawaii-area ecommerce web design projects within 3-4 months, but they can take up to 9-12 months for highly complex e-commerce websites.
  • Does your Hawaii ecommerce developer have a design portfolio or client reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce web development portfolio, numerous ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews to share!

How We Design the Best Hawaii Ecommerce Websites

You should expect Hawaii ecommerce website development agencies to have a formal process for how a new e-commerce website will be developed. Here's how we design Hawaii ecommerce sites:

Discovery Phone Calls

There are usually multiple discovery calls to learn more about your Hawaii 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.

Kickoff Meeting

If you feel confident about our ecommerce website design firm for your Hawaii 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.

Design Mockups or Template Search

If your future Hawaii ecommerce website design is built with WordPress and WooCommerce, or if your design budget can handle a custom design in Shopify, then the first phase of the project starts with mocking up 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, this is the phase where we start helping you select a theme for your Hawaii ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Development

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

Website Training & Launch

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

We've been optimizing our Hawaii ecommerce website 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 Hawaii Ecommerce Web Design Project

  • You can get multimedia to showcase your Hawaii web business from our on-site video production team.

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!

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!
