WebCitz was founded on the principle of providing custom web solutions throughout New York and the United States. In the New York-area, we've worked with local clients to understand their ecommerce business and build a custom website that's tailored to their online brand. As an e-commerce developer, we've worked on a lot of custom projects, like:

  • Headless ecommerce websites within Magento, Shopify, or BigCommerce using tools like Nuxt.js or Laravel to bring together the CMS and ecommerce platform.
  • 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.
  • Amazon and eBay integrations to list products in third-party channels.
  • Mobile apps to make B2B shopping easier.
  • Data management solutions to migrate data between platforms, import product data from suppliers, or export sales data to third party systems.

You'll be in good hands with us when it comes to New York e-commerce website development. We'd like to work with you and your New York team to understand your functionality requirements, outline the deliverables and turnaround time, and help you with everything after the launch.

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your New York Website

To recommend the best ecommerce platform for your New York e-commerce company we will need to talk with you about your website's objectives. There isn't one e-commerce platform that works for all New York businesses.

For WooCommerce, Shopify and BigCommerce projects, we have separate development teams. We can provide expert advice and service because our local ecommerce web developers specialize in their own preferred ecommerce platforms.

New York WooCommerce Web Development Services

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

In New York, we help startups and e-commerce businesses get started with WooCommerce.

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. We have our own custom WooCommerce theme that is based on Understrap and makes a great starting point for New York WooCommerce websites. Shopify or BigCommerce theme development can be more expensive for New York e-commerce clients.
  • If your New York 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 New York web companies who prefer open-source software. You don't have to pay a monthly fee for WordPress or WooCommerce, just for web hosting. Alternatively, Shopify and BigCommerce have high monthly fees to use the platform and their apps are often much more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce plugins.
  • Most New York businesses that want a product builder should consider 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. Don't worry though, there are third-party apps for New York websites running BigCommerce or Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • If you're in an industry that's not supported by Shopify or BigCommerce, try WooCommerce.

New York Shopify Web Design Services

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

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

Here are some reasons our ecommerce developers like Shopify:

  • For New York merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in New York without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • When New York 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 versus WooCommerce plugins that are more affordable.
  • The best e-commerce platform for New York businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing is Shopify. 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.

New York BigCommerce Web Development Services

Because of its API, BigCommerce is probably the most flexible web-based ecommerce platform available in New York. To build a successful BigCommerce website you will need to search for an experienced BigCommerce website designer in New York.

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

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

  • We recommend BigCommerce for online companies in New York interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. An advantage of a hosted e-commerce platform is you don't have to worry about updating it like you do 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 New York 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 New York ecommerce websites.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for New York merchants who want a hosted ecommerce platform, but don't like Shopify.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

Every New York e-commerce redesign project deserves exceptional care. It's possible to lose search rankings and online sales if your website developer forgets to create 301 redirects, completely restructures your URLs, or improperly reorganizes your product catalog.

We like to know your whole business before we start an e-commerce website redesign in New York. You should consider these factors when redesigning New York ecommerce sites:

  • How do people reach your New York 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's also good to keep the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your New York website.
  • What do customers think of your New York website? Making big changes to your website is okay 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 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 New York Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building out an ecommerce website in New York can be an expensive project. You should make a list of the goals you'd like to see achieved by a New York ecommerce website designer before you hire them. Keeping track of measurable goals will help you keep your e-commerce site progressing in the right direction. We've seen these goals for New York ecommerce website design projects:

  • Create a new e-commerce site for your New York-based company.
  • To migrate an legacy New York ecommerce systems into a new platform to improve functionality or website security.
  • To redesign an existing New York e-commerce website in the same platform to improve user experience (UX), reduce bounce rates, and improve conversion rates.
  • Improving the shopping experience by making it faster and more responsive.
  • To fix web accessibility issues for ADA and WCAG compliance.

Our New York ecommerce development services have helped other businesses before, so we're excited to help with your new ecommerce website! We can help you put together a list of goals for your New York e-commerce website if you need it!

Questions to Ask Your New York Ecommerce Web Designer

There are numerous questions to ask your New York ecommerce web development company before making a hiring decision. Even though the answer is important, how it's delivered is more important. Check to see how receptive the sales team is to detailed questions. You'll get a good idea for how things will be when the New York ecommerce web design service starts up. We get asked these ecommerce development questions a lot by New York e-commerce businesses:

  • Do you outsource ecommerce web development services? WebCitz does not outsource ecommerce website development services because we have our own team of Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers for your New York e-commerce website.
  • If you change URLs, do you set up 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 New York ecommerce web designs that have different URL structures.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? WebCitz makes design mockups for all New York WooCommerce development projects, but we don't create design mockups for Shopify and BigCommerce projects that are on a restricted budget.
  • Can you help New York business owners choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz does help New York clients select the platform for their ecommerce website. The answer is typically dependent upon the web design and ecommerce functionality requirements.
  • Can you tell me how fast New York ecommerce website design works? WebCitz typically completes most New York-area ecommerce 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 New York ecommerce web developer's past work or recent reviews? Check out our ecommerce website development portfolio, ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

Design Mockups or Template Selection

We'll start with mockups for your New York ecommerce website design if it's built in WordPress with WooCommerce or if your budget allows a custom design built in Shopify or BigCommerce. 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 New York ecommerce site if you opted for a template-based approach within Shopify and BigCommerce.

Ecommerce Web Design

The longest phase of your New York ecommerce build will be the development process. This includes everything for data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and much more! A password-protected development website lets you follow along.
