The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your New York City Website

To recommend the best ecommerce platform for your New York City 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 City businesses.

For WooCommerce and Shopify 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 City WooCommerce Web Development Services

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

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

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

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for New York City web design projects that need a custom theme, but are on a budget. We have our own internally developed WooCommerce theme, based on Understrap, which is a great starting point for a custom-designed New York City WooCommerce web site. Shopify theme development can be more expensive for New York City e-commerce clients.
  • If your New York City business website runs on WordPress, 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.
  • The web companies in New York City who prefer open-source software use WooCommerce. There are no monthly fees to use WordPress or WooCommerce, except the web hosting fee to keep the website online. As an alternative, Shopify has expensive monthly fees (depending on your plan) and their apps are often more expensive than WooCommerce or WordPress plugins.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for most New York City businesses that require a product builder. 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 City websites running Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • If you're in an industry that's not supported by Shopify, try WooCommerce.

New York City Shopify Web Development 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 web designer in New York City.

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

Here are some reasons our ecommerce developers like Shopify:

  • New York City merchants looking for a hosted ecommerce platform should check out Shopify. Shopify allows you to run an ecommerce business in New York City without the hassle of constantly updating plugins or software versions.
  • When New York 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 that really add up, in comparison to the less expensive WordPress plugin options.
  • The best e-commerce platform for New York City 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.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

Every New York City e-commerce redesign project deserves 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.

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

  • How do people reach your New York City 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 City website.
  • What do customers think about your New York City website? It's okay to make big changes to your website if your online shoppers aren't happy. If your conversion rates are already good, maybe you should consider being more conservative with design changes.
  • Are you moving your e-commerce platform? If so, you need to understand the new New York City website won't work like your old one did. Things like entering products, fulfilling orders, updating customer info, and going through check out will be different.

Determine Goals for Your New York City Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building out an ecommerce website in New York City can be an expensive project. You should make a list of the goals you'd like to see achieved by a New York City ecommerce website developer 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 City ecommerce website design projects:

  • Create a new e-commerce site for your New York City-based company.
  • To migrate an legacy New York City ecommerce systems into a new platform to improve functionality or website security.
  • To redesign an existing New York City e-commerce website in the same platform to improve user experience (UX), reduce bounce rates, and improve conversion rates.

Questions to Ask Your New York City Ecommerce Web Designer

There are numerous questions to ask your New York City ecommerce website design firm 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 City ecommerce web development service starts up. We get asked these ecommerce website development questions a lot by New York e-commerce businesses:

  • Do you outsource ecommerce web design services? WebCitz does not outsource ecommerce development services because we have our own team of Shopify and WooCommerce developers for your New York City e-commerce website.
  • If you change URLs, do you set up 301 redirects? While WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, sometimes it can't be done. For New York City ecommerce web development, we do 301 redirects with a different URL structure.
  • Do you create design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design project? WebCitz makes design mockups for all New York City WooCommerce development projects, but we don't create design mockups for Shopify projects that are on a restricted budget.
  • Are you able to help New York City businesses choose an e-commerce platform? WebCitz helps New York City clients choose the right ecommerce platform. Generally, the answer depends on your web design and e-commerce needs.
  • How quick is the turnaround time for New York City ecommerce website development services? WebCitz usually gets New York City 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 New York City ecommerce website designer have a design portfolio or client reviews? Check out our ecommerce development portfolio, ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best New York City Ecommerce Websites

You should expect New York City ecommerce web development companies to have a formal process for how a new e-commerce website will be developed. Here's how we make New York City ecommerce websites:

Discovery Phone Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your New York City company, your ecommerce history, 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 agency for your New York City website development, go ahead and sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule your kick off call! Everybody will have a chance to talk about how the project will unfold, who will handle each stage of the design, and how long the turnaround time will be for completion.

Design Mockups or Template Search

If your future New York City ecommerce website design is built with WordPress and WooCommerce, or if your design budget can handle a custom design in Shopify, then the first phase of the project starts with mocking up your website. This allows everyone to be on the same page regarding the look and feel of your website before an e-commerce developer starts the build process. This is where we start helping you select a theme for your New York City ecommerce site if you opted for a template-based approach within Shopify.

Ecommerce Website Development

The longest part of your New York City ecommerce build will be the development. It includes 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.

Website Launch (Plus Website Training!)

If you're comfortable with managing the e-commerce site, let's schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your New York City e-commerce site! You can even get a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

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!
