Manitoba Ecommerce Website Design Specialists

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

Understanding the nature of your Manitoba ecommerce business is key to developing an effective ecommerce website. The things we talk about with you are things like how you've run an ecommerce business in Manitoba, what platforms you've used, how your customers interact with your brand, what features you need, and how you handle orders.

Having this knowledge allows us to make informed recommendations regarding the best e-commerce platform for your Manitoba-based online business. If you're creating a new Manitoba ecommerce website or redesigning an old one, you have to pick the right platform for your needs.

It is important to begin Manitoba ecommerce development projects with an understanding of the business goals. We'll help you decide what metrics to use to measure the success of your Manitoba online store, whether you use our ecommerce web development firm or a different website developer. We'll use this information to set expectations on your Manitoba ecommerce website design so you get the best website for your storefront.

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

  • Enhancing BigCommerce and Shopify's product entry with Product Information Management systems.
  • Omnichannel ecommerce solutions to synchronize inventory, list products, and fulfill orders across multiple platforms.
  • Integrations with Amazon and eBay for third-party channels.

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Manitoba Website

If your Manitoba 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's perfect for every Manitoba website.

For WooCommerce, Shopify and BigCommerce projects, we have separate development teams. This allows our local ecommerce website developers to specialize in a particular development environment to provide expert advice and service.

Manitoba WooCommerce Web Development Services

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

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

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

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for Manitoba web design projects that need a custom theme, but are on a budget. We have our own custom WooCommerce theme that is based on Understrap and makes a great starting point for Manitoba WooCommerce websites. Theme development within Shopify or BigCommerce is often more expensive for Manitoba e-commerce clients.
  • If your Manitoba business already has a WordPress site, we recommend WooCommerce. If you are happy with the look and feel of your content-based website, why invest the time and money into redesigning that website just to add ecommerce?
  • The web companies in Manitoba who prefer open-source software use WooCommerce. You don't have to pay a monthly fee to use WordPress or WooCommerce. As an alternative, Shopify and BigCommerce have expensive monthly fees (depending on your plan) and their apps are often more expensive than WooCommerce or WordPress plugins.
  • For Manitoba businesses that need a product builder, we recommend WooCommerce. If you are using WordPress and WooCommerce, there are numerous product builder plugins to consider and we've got experience developing custom builders in WooCommerce. However, there are apps for Manitoba web companies using BigCommerce or Shopify that offer basic configurator functionality.
  • If you're in an industry that's not supported by Shopify or BigCommerce, try WooCommerce.

Manitoba Shopify Web Design Services

Shopify is the most popular SaaS e-commerce platform. If you want to run an e-commerce website using Shopify, you'll need a Shopify web designer in Manitoba.

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

Our ecommerce web developers love Shopify for these reasons:

  • For Manitoba merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. Shopify allows you to run an ecommerce business in Manitoba without the hassle of constantly updating plugins or software versions.
  • When Manitoba web 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.
  • Shopify is a great option for Manitoba 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.

Manitoba BigCommerce Website Design Services

Because of its API, BigCommerce is probably the most flexible web-based ecommerce platform available in Manitoba. To run an ecommerce website using BigCommerce you will likely be looking for a BigCommerce web developer in Manitoba.

We've helped startups and existing e-commerce businesses in the Manitoba area build out and improve their online stores.

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

  • We recommend BigCommerce to Manitoba companies looking for a hosted ecommerce platform. If you use a hosted e-commerce platform, you don't have to worry about updating it like you would 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 Manitoba storefront, 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 Manitoba ecommerce websites.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for Manitoba merchants who want a hosted ecommerce platform, but don't like Shopify.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

Take your e-commerce redesign in Manitoba seriously. It's possible to lose search rankings and online sales if your web designer forgets to create 301 redirects, completely restructures your URLs, or improperly reorganizes your product catalog.

Before starting Manitoba e-commerce website redesign projects, we like to thoroughly review your ecommerce business to understand the big picture. You should consider these factors when redesigning Manitoba ecommerce sites:

  • How do people reach your Manitoba e-commerce website? 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 Manitoba website.
  • What do customers think about your Manitoba website? It's okay to make big changes to your website if your online shoppers aren't happy. It's advisable to be cautious with design changes if you've already got good conversion rates.
  • Are you migrating e-commerce platforms? It will work different than your old website, if that's the case. The way you enter products, fulfill orders, update customer information, and go through the checkout will be different.

Determine Goals for Your Manitoba Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in Manitoba. Make a list of the things you want your Manitoba 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. The most common goals we've seen for Manitoba ecommerce website design projects include:

  • Create a new e-commerce site for your Manitoba-based company.
  • To migrate an legacy Manitoba 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 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 development in Manitoba! We can help you put together a list of goals for your Manitoba e-commerce website if you need it!

Questions to Ask Your Manitoba Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce web development company in Manitoba. 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. This will provide insight into future communication as the Manitoba ecommerce web design service gets started. We get asked these ecommerce development questions a lot by Manitoba e-commerce businesses:

  • Do you outsource ecommerce web development services? At WebCitz, we don't outsource ecommerce website development services because we have our own team of Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers.
  • 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 Manitoba ecommerce web design, we do 301 redirects with a different URL structure.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? WebCitz creates design mockups for all Manitoba WooCommerce developments, but we only create a design mockup for Shopify and BigCommerce projects that have a higher budget for a fully custom Manitoba ecommerce website design.
  • Can you help Manitoba business owners choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz does help Manitoba clients select the platform for their ecommerce website. Generally, the answer depends on your web design and e-commerce needs.
  • What's the turnaround time for Manitoba ecommerce development services? WebCitz usually gets Manitoba ecommerce web development projects done in 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complex e-commerce websites.
  • Your Manitoba ecommerce website developer should have a ecommerce portfolio or client reviews. Check out our ecommerce web design portfolio, ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Manitoba Ecommerce Websites

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

Discovery Phone Calls

There are typically multiple discovery calls to learn more about your Manitoba company, your history with ecommerce, your development expectations, and your future goals. By having everyone involved in the ecommerce project speak up, you'll minimize confusion and project delays.

Kickoff Meeting

If you're happy with our ecommerce development company for your Manitoba website development, 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 Search

If your future Manitoba ecommerce website design is built with WordPress and WooCommerce, or if your design budget can handle a custom design in Shopify or BigCommerce, then the first phase of the project starts with mocking up your website. This way, everyone is on the same page about how your site will look and feel before an e-commerce developer starts. 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 Manitoba ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Design

The longest phase of your Manitoba ecommerce build will be the development process. 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 Launch (Plus Website Training!)

When the ecommerce website development project is nearly done, we'll start working with you on training. If you're comfortable with managing the e-commerce site, let's schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your Manitoba e-commerce site! If interested, we can even share with you a checklist for the launch of the ecommerce site!

We've been optimizing our Manitoba 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 Canada!

Additional Services for Your Manitoba Ecommerce Web Design Project

The development of the website is only one part of a successful ecommerce storefront in Manitoba. Here are some other services, which are completely optional, to help you get the most out of your Manitoba e-commerce site:

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