The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Fredericton Website

In order to recommend the best ecommerce platform for your Fredericton business, we'll need to know what your goals are. There is no single e-commerce platform that is perfect for all Fredericton-area websites.

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.

Fredericton WooCommerce Web Development Services

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

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

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

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for Fredericton web design projects that require a custom designed theme, but are working on a limited budget. We have our own custom WooCommerce theme that is based on Understrap and makes a great starting point for Fredericton WooCommerce websites. Shopify theme development can be more expensive for Fredericton e-commerce clients.
  • If your Fredericton 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?
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Fredericton web companies who prefer open-source software. You don't have to pay a monthly fee to use WordPress or WooCommerce. Alternatively, Shopify has high monthly fees to use the platform and their apps are often much more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce plugins.
  • Most Fredericton businesses that want a product builder should consider WooCommerce. It's easier to build a product builder on WordPress than most other platforms. Don't worry though, there are third-party apps for Fredericton websites running Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify.

Fredericton Shopify Web Design Services

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

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

Here are some reasons our ecommerce website designers like Shopify:

  • For Fredericton merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in Fredericton without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • We recommend Shopify for Fredericton web companies without a lot of custom functionality requirements. 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.
  • We recommend Shopify for Fredericton 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.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

It might be time to rethink your Fredericton ecommerce website if you're not happy with its performance, functionality, or conversion rate.

You should approach Fredericton e-commerce redesign projects with exceptional care. 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.

Fredericton ecommerce website redesign starts with a thorough review of your ecommerce business to understand the big picture. You should consider these factors when redesigning Fredericton ecommerce sites:

  • How do people reach your Fredericton 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 Fredericton website.
  • What do customers think about your Fredericton website? If your online shoppers aren't happy with the design of the website then it is okay to make big changes. It's advisable to be cautious with design changes if you've already got good conversion rates.
  • Are you moving your e-commerce platform? 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 Fredericton Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building an ecommerce website in Fredericton can be expensive. Before hiring a local ecommerce web developer, you should put together a list of goals you'd like to see achieved through the Fredericton ecommerce website development service. 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 Fredericton ecommerce website design projects:

  • Create a new e-commerce site for your Fredericton-based company.
  • To migrate an legacy Fredericton ecommerce systems into a new platform to improve functionality or website security.
  • To redesign an existing Fredericton 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.

Questions to Ask Your Fredericton Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask your Fredericton ecommerce development company a lot of questions. While the answer will be valuable, even more important to you should be the manner in which the answer is given. 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. We get asked these ecommerce website development questions a lot by New Brunswick e-commerce businesses:

  • Do you outsource ecommerce web design services? WebCitz does not outsource ecommerce website design services because we have our own team of Shopify and WooCommerce developers for your Fredericton 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 Fredericton ecommerce developments that will have a different URL structure.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? WebCitz makes design mockups for all Fredericton WooCommerce development projects, but we don't create design mockups for Shopify projects that are on a restricted budget.
  • Can you help Fredericton business owners choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz does help Fredericton clients select the platform for their ecommerce website. The answer is typically dependent upon the web design and ecommerce functionality requirements.
  • What's the turnaround time for Fredericton ecommerce web development services? WebCitz typically completes most Fredericton-area ecommerce website development projects within 3-4 months, but they can take up to 9-12 months for highly complex e-commerce websites.
  • Have you seen your Fredericton ecommerce web designer's past work or recent reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce development portfolio, numerous e-commerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Fredericton Ecommerce Websites

If you want a new e-commerce website, you should expect Fredericton ecommerce web development firms to have a formal process for how they do it. Here is our process for designing Fredericton ecommerce websites:

Discovery Phone Calls

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

Kickoff Meeting

If you feel confident about our ecommerce web design company for your Fredericton 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 Fredericton 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 way, everyone is on the same page about how your site will look and feel before an e-commerce developer starts. This is where we start helping you select a theme for your Fredericton ecommerce site if you opted for a template-based approach within Shopify.

Ecommerce Web Design

The longest phase of your Fredericton ecommerce build will be the development process. This includes everything for data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and much more! Throughout the process, you'll be able to follow along via a password-protected development website.

Website Training & Launch

As soon as the ecommerce 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 Fredericton 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 working on our New Brunswick ecommerce web 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 Canada!

Corey was absolutely amazing in helping me with my issue. He was encouraging as we worked through things that to me were huge, but he made them seem small. Will definitely use WebCitz again!!!

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!
