Meridian, ID Ecommerce Website Design Specialists

Our ecommerce web designers have built custom websites for Meridian-area businesses for more than 18 years.

Knowing how your Meridian ecommerce business works is key to creating an effective ecommerce website. We take the time to discuss with you a number of topics, including your history running your Meridian ecommerce business, the platforms you've used to sell online, the quality of your product data, how customers 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 Meridian-based online business. If you're building a new Meridian ecommerce site or redesigning an existing one, choosing the right platform is key.

It is important to begin Meridian ecommerce development projects with an understanding of the business goals. Regardless of whether you choose a local Meridian ecommerce web developer or a national ecommerce website development agency, we'll help you gauge the success of your Meridian ecommerce website design service.

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Meridian Website

If your Meridian 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 Meridian businesses.

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

Meridian WooCommerce Website Design Services

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

In Meridian, 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. Based on Understrap, our own WooCommerce theme is a great starting point for Meridian WooCommerce web designs. Shopify theme development can be more expensive for Meridian e-commerce clients.
  • If your Meridian 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.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Meridian web companies who prefer open-source software. There are no monthly fees to use WordPress or WooCommerce, except the web hosting fee to keep the website online. If you want to use Shopify, you might have to pay a lot of money for the platform, and their apps are often a lot more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce plugins.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for most Meridian businesses that require a product builder. It's easier to build a product builder on WordPress than most other platforms. Don't worry though, there are third-party apps for Meridian websites running Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • If you're in an industry that's not supported by Shopify, try WooCommerce.

Meridian Shopify Web Development Services

Shopify is the most popular hosted e-commerce platform. If you want to run an e-commerce website in Meridian, you'll probably need a Shopify web developer.

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

Here are some reasons our ecommerce web designers like Shopify:

  • We recommend Shopify for Meridian merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. Shopify allows you to run an ecommerce business in Meridian without the hassle of constantly updating plugins or software versions.
  • For Meridian web companies 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, you'll find getting Shopify apps often require monthly subscriptions versus one-time purchases for WordPress plugins.
  • The best e-commerce platform for Meridian businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing is Shopify. 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

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

Every Meridian e-commerce redesign project deserves exceptional care. For instance, you may lose search rankings and online sales if your Meridian ecommerce web designer forgets to create 301 redirects, drastically changes your URL structure, or reorganizes your product catalog.

Before starting Meridian e-commerce website redesign projects, we like to thoroughly review your ecommerce business to understand the big picture. Here are some of the things to keep in mind when redesigning Meridian ecommerce sites:

  • How do people reach your Meridian e-commerce website? 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 Meridian website.
  • What do customers think about your Meridian 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 moving your e-commerce platform? 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 Meridian Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in Meridian. You should make a list of the goals you'd like to see achieved by a Meridian ecommerce developer before you hire them. 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 Meridian ecommerce website design projects include:

  • To build out an online store for a new Meridian business.
  • To migrate an legacy Meridian ecommerce systems into a new platform to improve functionality or website 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 Idaho ecommerce web development services have helped other businesses before, so we're excited to help with your new ecommerce website! Let us help you put together a list of goals for your ecommerce website if your Meridian e-commerce company needs help!

Questions to Ask Your Meridian Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce website development firm in Meridian. Even though the answer is important, how it's delivered is more important. Pay attention to how receptive the sales team is to being asked detailed questions. This will provide insight into future communication as the Meridian ecommerce development service gets started. Here are a few of the ecommerce web development questions we get from businesses in and around Idaho:

  • Do you outsource ecommerce website development services? WebCitz doesn't outsource ecommerce web design because we have our own Shopify and WooCommerce developers for your Meridian 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 Meridian ecommerce website designs that have different URL structures.
  • Do you make design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design? WebCitz makes design mockups for all Meridian WooCommerce development projects, but we don't create design mockups for Shopify projects that are on a restricted budget.
  • Can you help Meridian business owners choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz helps Meridian clients choose the right ecommerce platform. The answer is typically dependent upon the web design and ecommerce functionality requirements.
  • How quick is the turnaround time for Meridian ecommerce development services? WebCitz usually gets most Meridian-area ecommerce sites up and running within 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complicated ones.
  • Does your Meridian ecommerce web developer have a design portfolio or client reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce website development portfolio, numerous e-commerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Meridian Ecommerce Websites

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

Multiple Discovery Calls

There are typically multiple discovery calls to learn more about your Meridian company, your history with ecommerce, your development expectations, and your future goals. Having everyone involved in the ecommerce project voice their opinion helps minimize confusion.

Kickoff Meeting

When you're ready to move forward with our ecommerce web design agency for your Meridian 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 Meridian 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. This is where we start helping you select a theme for your Meridian ecommerce site if you opted for a template-based approach within Shopify.

Ecommerce Web Design

The longest part of your Meridian ecommerce build will be the development. This includes everything for data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and much more! Throughout this process, you'll have a password-protected development website to visit so you can follow along and provide comments as necessary.

Training & Launch

Once the ecommerce web development 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 Meridian e-commerce storefront once you're comfortable managing it. You can even get a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

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

  • We have an on-site video production team to help with the creation of multimedia to showcase your Meridian web-based business.

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 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.
