The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Kansas City Website

To recommend the best ecommerce platform for your Kansas City 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 Kansas City website.

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

Kansas City WooCommerce Website Design Services

WordPress is the most popular content management system in Kansas City. When you run an ecommerce website with WordPress, you'll probably need a WooCommerce web developer in Kansas City.

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

Here are some of the reasons our ecommerce website designers tend to recommend 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 Kansas City WooCommerce web designs. Shopify theme development can be more expensive for Kansas City e-commerce clients.
  • If your Kansas City 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.
  • WooCommerce is a great open-source option for Kansas City web companies. 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.
  • Most Kansas City businesses that want a product builder should consider WooCommerce. It's easier to build a product builder on WordPress than most other platforms. However, there are apps for Kansas City web companies running Shopify that offer product configurators.
  • WooCommerce is great if you're in an industry that's not accepted by Shopify.

Kansas City Shopify Web Development Services

Shopify is the most popular hosted e-commerce platform. To run an e-commerce website using Shopify you will likely be looking for a Shopify website developer in Kansas City.

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

Our ecommerce website designers love Shopify for these reasons:

  • For Kansas City merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in Kansas City without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • When Kansas City web companies don't need a lot of custom functionality, we recommend Shopify. It's more expensive to develop custom functionality in Shopify than WordPress. Additionally, Shopify apps often have monthly fees versus WooCommerce plugins that are more affordable.
  • Shopify is a great option for Kansas City 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.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

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

Kansas City ecommerce website redesign starts with a thorough review of your ecommerce business to understand the big picture. Here are some of the things to keep in mind when redesigning Kansas City ecommerce sites:

  • Where can people find your Kansas City 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 Kansas City website.
  • What do customers think of your Kansas City 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 Kansas City Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building out an ecommerce website in Kansas City can be an expensive project. Make a list of the things you want your Kansas City 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 Kansas City ecommerce website design projects:

  • To build out an online store for a new Kansas City business.
  • To migrate an old Kansas City 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.

Our Missouri 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 Kansas City e-commerce company needs help!

Questions to Ask Your Kansas City Ecommerce Web Designer

There are numerous questions to ask your Kansas City ecommerce website development firm 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 a few of the ecommerce development questions we get from businesses in and around Missouri:

  • Are you outsourcing ecommerce web development? At WebCitz, we don't outsource ecommerce website development services because we have our own team of Shopify 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 create 301 redirects for Kansas City ecommerce web designs that have different URL structures.
  • Do you make design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design? WebCitz makes design mockups for all Kansas City WooCommerce development projects, but we don't create design mockups for Shopify projects that are on a restricted budget.
  • Can you help Kansas City business owners choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz helps Kansas City clients choose the right ecommerce platform. Typically, the answer is based on the web design and ecommerce requirements.
  • How quick is the turnaround time for Kansas City ecommerce website design services? WebCitz usually gets most Kansas City-area ecommerce sites up and running within 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complicated ones.
  • Have you seen your Kansas City ecommerce developer's past work or recent reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce web development portfolio, numerous e-commerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Kansas City Ecommerce Websites

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

Discovery Phone Calls

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

Kickoff Conversation

If you're happy with our ecommerce development company for your Kansas City 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 Selection

We'll start with mockups for your Kansas City 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 Kansas City ecommerce site if you opted for a template-based approach within Shopify.

Ecommerce Web Design

The longest part of your Kansas City 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.

Training & Launch

As soon as the ecommerce website development project is finished, we'll provide you with any training you need. We'll schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your Kansas City 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 improving this Missouri ecommerce web design process for more than 18 years. We have incredible experience designing, developing, and launching successful e-commerce websites throughout United States!
