With more than 18 years of experience developing custom ecommerce solutions, you can count on our e-commerce developers to provide you the website your non profit organization needs.

Developing effective ecommerce websites for non profits starts with understanding the nature of their e-commerce business. The things we talk about with you are things like how you've run your non profit organization ecommerce business, what platforms you've used, how your non profits interact with your brand, what features you need, and how you handle orders.

Knowing this lets us make informed recommendations about the best e-commerce platform for your non profits. If you're creating a new non profit ecommerce website or redesigning an old one, you have to pick the right platform for your needs.

It is important to begin non profit organization ecommerce web development projects with an understanding of the business goals. We'll help you determine the best metrics to use to gauge the success of your non profit organization ecommerce web design service, regardless if you choose a local non profit e-commerce developer or a national ecommerce development company. This will help set expectations throughout the scope of the non profit ecommerce project to ensure you receive the best website for your storefront.

After your non profit ecommerce web design service is complete, we'll even be available to offer non profit organization digital marketing and website support services!

The Best Ecommerce Platforms for Non Profit Organization Websites

To recommend the best ecommerce platform for your non profit e-commerce company we will need to talk with you about your website's objectives. There is no single e-commerce platform that is perfect for all non profit organization websites.

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

Non Profit WooCommerce Web Development Services

WordPress is the most popular content management system for non profit organization websites. To run an ecommerce website using WordPress you will likely be looking for a WooCommerce web designer for non profit organizations.

Our WooCommerce web development team has experience helping new and existing non profit organizations get started with WooCommerce.

Here are some of the reasons our ecommerce 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 internally developed WooCommerce theme, based on Understrap, which is a great starting point for a custom-designed non profit WooCommerce web site. Ecommerce theme development within Shopify or BigCommerce is often more expensive for non profit organizations.
  • If your non profit organization 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.
  • The non profit organizations 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 and BigCommerce have 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 non profit organizations 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 non profit organization websites running BigCommerce or Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify or BigCommerce.

Non Profit Shopify Web Design Services

Shopify is the most popular SaaS e-commerce platform. If you want to run an e-commerce website for your non profit organization, you'll probably need a Shopify developer.

A lot of our Shopify developers have experience designing websites for new and existing non profit organizations.

Here are some of the reasons our ecommerce developers often recommend Shopify:

  • We recommend Shopify for non profits interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. Shopify allows you to run an ecommerce business for your non profit organization without the hassle of constantly updating plugins or software versions.
  • We recommend Shopify for non profit organizations without a lot of custom functionality requirements. The cost of developing custom functionality with Shopify is higher than with WordPress. Additionally, Shopify apps often have monthly fees versus WooCommerce plugins that are more affordable.
  • We recommend Shopify for non profit organizations 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.

Non Profit BigCommerce Web Development Services

Because of its API, BigCommerce is probably the most flexible web-based ecommerce platform available for non profit organizations. To run an ecommerce website using BigCommerce you will likely be looking for a BigCommerce website designer for your non profit organization.

Our BigCommerce web development team has experience helping startup and existing non profit organization ecommerce websites build out and improve their storefronts.

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

  • We recommend BigCommerce for non profit organizations 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 non profit organization, which is the process of integrating a platform like BigCommerce through APIs and custom web programming.
  • BigCommerce has a robust API that makes it easy to create custom features for your non profit organization ecommerce site.
  • Our recommendation for non profits who don't like Shopify but want a hosted ecommerce platform is BigCommerce.

Redesigning an Existing Non Profit Organization Ecommerce Website

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

You should approach non profit organization e-commerce redesign projects with exceptional care. It's possible to lose search rankings and online sales if your web 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 e-commerce website redesigns for non profit organizations. You should consider these factors when redesigning non profit ecommerce sites:

  • How do people reach your non profit organization 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 non profit organization website.
  • What do non profits think of your non profit organization website? Making big changes to your website is okay 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 migrating e-commerce platforms? 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.

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!

What can I say about this company? These people that work there? Unbelievable!! It doesn't matter when or why you call, they will help you. The other part of that statement is: I never have to call them! They made a web site for us that works 24/7. But if I do call they actually take care of it right then. ... great bunch of guys...Southwest Radio Church really appreciates you!!

WebCitz designed our Alo Health website and did such a great job of walking us step-by-step through the process, knowing the tech world was not a strength of ours. We love that we are able to change content whenever we want, but if we run into problems, they are a quick email away. They have been responsive, reliable and efficient. Thanks, WebCitz!

Determine the Goals of Your Non Profit Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building out an ecommerce website for your non profit organization can be an expensive project. Before hiring a local ecommerce developer, you should put together a list of goals you'd like to see achieved through your non profit e-commerce web design service.

  • Create a new non profit organization e-commerce website.
  • To migrate legacy non profit ecommerce systems into a new platform to improve functionality or website security.
  • To redesign an existing non profit organization 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 issues for ADA and WCAG compliance.

Our non profit ecommerce development services have helped other businesses before, so we're excited to help with your new ecommerce website! If your non profit organization needs help putting together a list of goals for your ecommerce website just reach out to our team for assistance!

Questions to Ask An Ecommerce Web Designer for Non Profits

There are numerous questions to ask your non profit organization ecommerce web design company before making a hiring decision. 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. You'll get a good idea for how things will be when the non profit e-commerce web design service starts up. We get asked these ecommerce web development questions a lot by non profit organization e-commerce businesses:

  • Do you outsource ecommerce development services? WebCitz does not outsource ecommerce web design services because we have our own team of Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers for your non profit e-commerce website.
  • Do you create 301 redirects if the URLs are going to change? WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, but this is often not possible during platform migrations. We create 301 redirects for non profit ecommerce developments that have different URL structures.
  • Do you create design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design project? WebCitz creates design mockups for all non profit WooCommerce developments, but we only create a design mockup for Shopify and BigCommerce projects that have a higher budget for a fully custom non profit organization ecommerce web development.
  • Can you help non profits choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz helps non profit organizations choose the right ecommerce platform. Generally, the answer depends on your web design and e-commerce needs.
  • How quick is the turnaround time for non profit ecommerce web development services? WebCitz typically completes most non profit organization ecommerce development projects within 3-4 months, but they can take up to 9-12 months for highly complex e-commerce websites.
  • Does your non profit organization ecommerce developer have a design portfolio or client reviews? WebCitz has an e-commerce web design portfolio, numerous ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews to share!

How We Design the Best Non Profit Ecommerce Websites

You should expect ecommerce web design agencies for non profit organizations to have a formal process for how a new e-commerce website will be developed. Here is our process for designing non profit organization ecommerce websites:

Discovery Phone Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your non profit organization, 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 e-commerce design agency for your non profit organization, 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 Selection

We'll start with mockups for your non profit 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 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. Alternatively, if you selected a template-based approach within Shopify and BigCommerce, this is the phase where we start helping you select a theme for your non profit organization ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Design

The longest part of your non profit organization 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 design 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 non profit organization e-commerce storefront! You can even get a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been working on our non profit 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 the United States and Canada!
