The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Newfoundland Website

To recommend the best ecommerce platform for your Newfoundland 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 Newfoundland businesses.

For WooCommerce and Shopify projects, we have separate development teams. This allows our local ecommerce web developers to specialize in a particular development environment to provide expert advice and service.

Newfoundland WooCommerce Web Design Services

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

We've helped startups and existing e-commerce companies get started with WooCommerce in Newfoundland or other parts of Canada.

Here are some of the reasons our ecommerce website designers tend to recommend WooCommerce:

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for Newfoundland web design projects that need a custom theme, but are on a budget. We have our own custom WooCommerce theme that is based on Understrap and makes a great starting point for Newfoundland WooCommerce websites. Theme development for Newfoundland e-commerce clients is usually more expensive on Shopify.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Newfoundland businesses with an existing WordPress website. 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 Newfoundland 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. Alternatively, Shopify has high monthly fees to use the platform and their apps are often much more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce plugins.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for most Newfoundland 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. However, there are apps for Newfoundland web companies running Shopify that offer product configurators.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify.

Newfoundland Shopify Website Design Services

Shopify is the most popular SaaS e-commerce platform. If you want to run an e-commerce website using Shopify, you'll need a Shopify website developer in Newfoundland.

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

Here are some reasons our ecommerce website designers like Shopify:

  • For Newfoundland merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. Shopify allows you to run an ecommerce business in Newfoundland without the hassle of constantly updating plugins or software versions.
  • We recommend Shopify for Newfoundland web companies without a lot of custom functionality requirements. It is often more expensive to develop custom functionality within 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 Newfoundland 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

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

Every Newfoundland 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.

Before starting Newfoundland e-commerce website redesign projects, we like to thoroughly review your ecommerce business to understand the big picture. Here are some of the important factors to consider when redesigning Newfoundland ecommerce websites:

  • How do people reach your Newfoundland e-commerce website? 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 Newfoundland website.
  • What do customers think of your Newfoundland website? It's okay to make big changes to your website if your online shoppers aren't happy. It's advisable to be cautious with design changes if you've already got good conversion rates.
  • Do you plan to migrate your e-commerce platform? If so, understand the new Newfoundland website will function differently than your previous website. Things like entering products, fulfilling orders, updating customer info, and going through check out will be different.

Determine Goals for Your Newfoundland Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building out an ecommerce website in Newfoundland can be an expensive project. You should make a list of the goals you'd like to see achieved by a Newfoundland ecommerce web developer before you hire them. Keeping track of measurable goals will help you keep your e-commerce site progressing in the right direction. The most common goals we've seen for Newfoundland ecommerce website design projects include:

  • To build out an online website for a new Newfoundland e-commerce venture.
  • To migrate an legacy Newfoundland ecommerce systems into a new platform to improve functionality or website 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.

It's great to be able to help you with your new ecommerce website development in Newfoundland! We can help you put together a list of goals for your Newfoundland e-commerce website if you need it!

Questions to Ask Your Newfoundland Ecommerce Web Designer

There are numerous questions to ask your Newfoundland ecommerce web design agency 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. This will provide insight into future communication as the Newfoundland ecommerce web development service gets started. Here are some common ecommerce website development questions we get asked by e-commerce businesses in and around Newfoundland:

  • Do you outsource ecommerce web design services? At WebCitz, we don't outsource ecommerce website design 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. For Newfoundland ecommerce development, we do 301 redirects with a different URL structure.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? For Newfoundland WooCommerce development, WebCitz creates design mockups. But for Shopify, we only create design mockups if the budget is high enough for a fully custom Newfoundland ecommerce web development.
  • Do you help Newfoundland business owners select the platform for their e-commerce website? WebCitz helps Newfoundland 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 Newfoundland ecommerce website development services? WebCitz typically completes most Newfoundland-area ecommerce web design projects within 3-4 months, but they can take up to 9-12 months for highly complex e-commerce websites.
  • Does your Newfoundland ecommerce developer have a design portfolio or client reviews? Check out our ecommerce web development portfolio, ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Newfoundland Ecommerce Websites

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

Discovery Phone Calls

There are typically multiple discovery calls to learn more about your Newfoundland company, your history with ecommerce, your development expectations, and your future goals. This helps ensure everyone working on your project has an opportunity to voice their opinion, which goes a long way to minimizing confusion throughout the ecommerce project.

Kickoff Meeting

If you're happy with our ecommerce website design firm for your Newfoundland 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

If your future Newfoundland 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 way, everyone is on the same page about how your site will look and feel before an e-commerce developer starts. If you've chosen a template-based approach within Shopify, this is the phase where we start helping you pick a theme for your Newfoundland ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Development

The longest part of your Newfoundland 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 Training & Launch

Once the ecommerce web development project is close to completion, we'll start working with you to provide any necessary training. If you're comfortable with managing the e-commerce site, let's schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your Newfoundland e-commerce site! We can even share a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been working on our Newfoundland ecommerce website development process for more than 18 years. We've created, designed, developed, and launched successful e-commerce sites across Canada!

Additional Services for Your Newfoundland Ecommerce Web Design Project
