Missouri Ecommerce Website Design Specialists

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

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

We can make informed recommendations about the best e-commerce platform for your Missouri-based online business based on this information. The selection of the best platform for your specific needs is critical when developing a new Missouri ecommerce website or redesigning an existing Missouri e-commerce website.

It is important to begin Missouri ecommerce development projects with an understanding of the business goals. We'll help you determine the best metrics to use to gauge the success of your Missouri ecommerce web development service, regardless if you choose a local Missouri e-commerce developer or a national ecommerce website development agency. This will help set expectations throughout the scope of the Missouri ecommerce website design to ensure you receive the best website for your storefront.

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

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Missouri Website

If your Missouri e-commerce company needs a platform recommendation, we need to know what your website's goals are. There is no single e-commerce platform that is perfect for all Missouri-area websites.

To deliver amazing ecommerce website development services in Missouri, we have different development teams for WooCommerce projects and Shopify and BigCommerce projects. This gives our ecommerce web designers the chance to specialize in particular development environments to provide expert advice and help.

Missouri WooCommerce Web Design Services

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

Our WooCommerce web development team has experience helping startups and existing e-commerce businesses in Missouri get started with WooCommerce.

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

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for Missouri web design projects that require a custom designed theme, but are working on a limited budget. Based on Understrap, our own WooCommerce theme is a great starting point for Missouri WooCommerce web designs. Theme development for Missouri e-commerce clients is usually more expensive on Shopify and BigCommerce.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Missouri businesses with an existing WordPress website. 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?
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Missouri 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. 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.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for most Missouri businesses that require a product builder. It's easier to build a product builder on WordPress than most other platforms. However, there are apps for Missouri web companies running BigCommerce or Shopify that offer product configurators.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify or BigCommerce.

Missouri Shopify Web 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 Missouri.

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

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

  • Missouri merchants looking for a hosted ecommerce platform should check out Shopify. If you want to run an ecommerce business in Missouri, you don't have to worry about constantly updating plugins or software.
  • We recommend Shopify for Missouri 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 Missouri e-commerce businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing initiatives. 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.

Missouri BigCommerce Web Design Services

A robust API makes BigCommerce one of the most flexible web-based ecommerce platforms in Missouri. If you want to run an ecommerce site with BigCommerce you'll probably need a Missouri BigCommerce website developer.

Our BigCommerce web development team has experience helping startup and existing Missouri-area ecommerce businesses build out and improve their online websites.

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

  • We recommend BigCommerce for online companies in Missouri 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 Missouri 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 Missouri ecommerce websites.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for Missouri merchants who want a hosted ecommerce platform, but don't like Shopify.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

You should approach Missouri e-commerce redesign projects with exceptional care. You can lose search rankings and sales if your Missouri ecommerce website designer forgets to create 301 redirects, changes your URL structure drastically, or reorganizes your product catalog.

Missouri 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 Missouri ecommerce websites:

  • How do people reach your Missouri 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. It is also advisable to maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Missouri website.
  • What do customers think about your Missouri website? If your online shoppers aren't happy with the design of the website then it is okay to make big changes. Consider being more conservative with design changes if your conversion rates are already good.
  • Do you plan to migrate your e-commerce platform? If so, understand the new Missouri website will function differently than your previous website. The way you enter products, fulfill orders, update customer information, and go through the checkout will be different.

Determine Goals for Your Missouri Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in Missouri. Before hiring a local ecommerce web developer, you should put together a list of goals you'd like to see achieved through the Missouri ecommerce website development service. This will help keep you on track during the design of your e-commerce site, and set measurable goals for later. Here are some of the goals we've seen for Missouri ecommerce website design projects:

  • To build out an online website for a new Missouri e-commerce venture.
  • To migrate an legacy Missouri ecommerce systems into a new platform to improve functionality or website security.
  • To redesign an existing Missouri e-commerce website in the same platform 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 Missouri ecommerce web design solutions before and are excited by the prospect of helping with your new ecommerce website design! Let us help you put together a list of goals for your ecommerce website if your Missouri e-commerce company needs help!

Questions to Ask Your Missouri Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce development company in Missouri. 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. 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 Missouri:

  • Do you outsource ecommerce web design services? WebCitz does not outsource ecommerce website design services because we have our own team of Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers for your Missouri e-commerce website.
  • 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 Missouri ecommerce developments that will have a different URL structure.
  • Do you make design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design? For Missouri WooCommerce development, WebCitz creates design mockups. But for Shopify and BigCommerce, we only create design mockups if the budget is high enough for a fully custom Missouri ecommerce web development.
  • Do you help Missouri business owners select the platform for their e-commerce website? WebCitz does help Missouri clients select the platform for their ecommerce website. The answer is typically dependent upon the web design and ecommerce functionality requirements.
  • How quick is the turnaround time for Missouri ecommerce website development services? WebCitz usually gets Missouri ecommerce web design projects done in 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complex e-commerce websites.
  • Does your Missouri ecommerce developer have a design portfolio or client reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce web development portfolio, numerous e-commerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Missouri Ecommerce Websites

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

Multiple Discovery Phone Calls

There are usually multiple discovery calls to learn more about your Missouri 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 development agency for your Missouri website development, go ahead and sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule your kick off 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 Missouri 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 helps everyone agree on the look and feel of your website before an e-commerce developer starts working on it. If you've chosen a template-based approach within Shopify and BigCommerce, this is the phase where we start helping you pick a theme for your Missouri ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Development

The longest phase of your Missouri ecommerce build will be the development process. 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.

Website Launch (Plus Website Training!)

Once the ecommerce website design 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 Missouri e-commerce storefront once you're comfortable managing it. We can even share a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been working on our Missouri ecommerce development 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!

Additional Services for Your Missouri Ecommerce Web Design Project

The development of the website is only one part of a successful ecommerce storefront in Missouri. Let's explore some additional services, which are completely optional, to help you get the most out of your custom Missouri e-commerce website:

  • We have an on-site video production team to help you showcase your Missouri business on the web.
