The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Springfield Website

If your Springfield 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 Springfield website.

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

Springfield WooCommerce Web Development Services

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

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

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

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for Springfield 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 Springfield WooCommerce web designs. Shopify theme development can be more expensive for Springfield e-commerce clients.
  • If your Springfield 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 Springfield web companies. You don't have to pay a monthly fee for WordPress or WooCommerce, just for web hosting. 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 Springfield businesses that require a product builder. It is simply easier to develop a custom product builder in WordPress than most other platforms. Don't worry though, there are third-party apps for Springfield websites running Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • WooCommerce is great if you're in an industry that's not accepted by Shopify.

Springfield Shopify Web Design Services

Shopify is the most popular web-based ecommerce platform. If you want to run an e-commerce website in Springfield, you'll probably need a Shopify web designer.

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

Our ecommerce developers love Shopify for these reasons:

  • For Springfield merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in Springfield without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • When Springfield 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 that really add up, in comparison to the less expensive WordPress plugin options.
  • Shopify is a great option for Springfield e-commerce businesses that need fast turnaround times for marketing and development. 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

Springfield 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 Springfield seriously. For instance, you may lose search rankings and online sales if your Springfield ecommerce web developer forgets to create 301 redirects, drastically changes your URL structure, or reorganizes your product catalog.

Before starting Springfield 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 Springfield ecommerce sites:

  • Where can people find your Springfield e-commerce site? 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 Springfield website.
  • What do customers think about your Springfield 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.
  • 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 Springfield Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in Springfield. Make a list of the things you want your Springfield e-commerce website to accomplish before you hire a developer. 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 Springfield ecommerce website design projects include:

  • Create a new e-commerce site for your Springfield-based company.
  • To migrate an old Springfield ecommerce site to a new platform to improve functionality, or site security.
  • To redesign an existing Springfield 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 website development 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 Springfield e-commerce company needs help!

Questions to Ask Your Springfield Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce web design agency in Springfield. While the answer will be valuable, how it's delivered should be even 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 Springfield ecommerce web development service gets started. We get asked these ecommerce website development questions a lot by Missouri e-commerce businesses:

  • Are you outsourcing ecommerce web design? WebCitz does not outsource ecommerce website design services because we have our own team of Shopify and WooCommerce developers for your Springfield 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 Springfield ecommerce developments that will have a different URL structure.
  • Do you make design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design? WebCitz makes design mockups for all Springfield WooCommerce development projects, but we don't create design mockups for Shopify projects that are on a restricted budget.
  • Can you help Springfield business owners choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz helps Springfield clients choose the right ecommerce platform. Typically, the answer is based on the web design and ecommerce requirements.
  • Can you tell me how fast Springfield ecommerce web development works? WebCitz usually gets most Springfield-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 Springfield ecommerce website developer have a design portfolio or client reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce web design portfolio, numerous ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews to share!

How We Design the Best Springfield Ecommerce Websites

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

Multiple Discovery Calls

There are typically multiple discovery calls to learn more about your Springfield 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 Conversation

If you feel confident about our ecommerce development company for your Springfield 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 Springfield ecommerce website design is in WordPress with WooCommerce, or your design budget accommodates a custom design in Shopify, 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. This is where we start helping you select a theme for your Springfield ecommerce site if you opted for a template-based approach within Shopify.

Ecommerce Web Design

The longest part of your Springfield ecommerce build will be the development. Data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and more! A password-protected development website lets you follow along.

Training & Launch

Once the ecommerce website 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 Springfield e-commerce storefront! You can even get 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 a tremendous amount of experience planning, designing, developing, and launching successful e-commerce web sites throughout United States!

Additional Services for Your Springfield Ecommerce Web Design Project

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

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