The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your North Carolina Website

To recommend the best ecommerce platform for your North Carolina 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 North Carolina-area websites.

To deliver exceptional ecommerce website design services in North Carolina, we have separate development teams for WooCommerce projects than for Shopify and BigCommerce projects. We can provide expert advice and service because our local ecommerce developers specialize in their own preferred ecommerce platforms.

North Carolina WooCommerce Web Development Services

The most popular North Carolina website content management system is WordPress. If you want an ecommerce website using WordPress, you'll likely need a WooCommerce web developer in North Carolina.

We've helped startups and existing e-commerce companies get started with WooCommerce in North Carolina or other parts of the United States.

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

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for North Carolina web design projects that require a custom designed theme, but are working on a limited budget. We have our own internally developed WooCommerce theme, based on Understrap, which is a great starting point for a custom-designed North Carolina WooCommerce web site. Theme development within Shopify or BigCommerce is often more expensive for North Carolina e-commerce clients.
  • If your North Carolina business already has a WordPress site, we recommend WooCommerce. When you like the look and feel of your content-based website, why spend time and money redesigning it just to add ecommerce?
  • We recommend WooCommerce for North Carolina web companies who prefer open-source software. 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.
  • Most North Carolina 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 North Carolina websites running BigCommerce or Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • WooCommerce is great if you're in an industry that's not accepted by Shopify or BigCommerce.

North Carolina Shopify Website Design 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 website developer in North Carolina.

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

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

  • For North Carolina merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. If you want to run an ecommerce business in North Carolina, you don't have to worry about constantly updating plugins or software.
  • We recommend Shopify for North Carolina 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 versus WooCommerce plugins that are more affordable.
  • The best e-commerce platform for North Carolina businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing is Shopify. 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.

North Carolina BigCommerce Web Development Services

A robust API makes BigCommerce one of the most flexible web-based ecommerce platforms in North Carolina. If you want to run an ecommerce site with BigCommerce you'll probably need a North Carolina BigCommerce web designer.

Our BigCommerce web development team has experience helping startup and existing North Carolina-area ecommerce businesses build out and improve their online websites.

Here are a few reasons our e-commerce website designers often recommend BigCommerce:

  • We recommend BigCommerce for online companies in North Carolina interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. The benefit of a hosted e-commerce platform is you don't have to worry about regularly installing updates, like you'd find with WordPress and WooCommerce.
  • BigCommerce can be an external ecommerce platform for legacy sites that can't migrate to a new platform. We can build out a "headless e-commerce" solution for your North Carolina business, which is the process of bridging a platform like BigCommerce through APIs and custom web programming to your existing website.
  • We recommend BigCommerce because of their robust API, which is exceptionally helpful for building out custom functionality in North Carolina ecommerce websites.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for North Carolina 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 North Carolina ecommerce website it might be time to think about a redesign or rehaul of your website.

You should approach North Carolina e-commerce redesign projects with exceptional care. For instance, you may lose search rankings and online sales if your North Carolina ecommerce web developer forgets to create 301 redirects, drastically changes your URL structure, or reorganizes your product catalog.

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

  • You have an e-commerce site in North Carolina. How do people get there? It's important to maintain URL structures or implement 301 redirects if most of your online sales come from organic search traffic. Maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and content throughout the development of your North Carolina website.
  • What do customers think of your North Carolina website? If your online shoppers aren't happy with the design of the website then it is okay to make big changes. 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. You'll have to be prepared to change how you enter products, fill out orders, update customer info, and checkout.

Determine Goals for Your North Carolina Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building out an ecommerce website in North Carolina can be an expensive project. Before hiring a local ecommerce web designer, you should put together a list of goals you'd like to see achieved through the North Carolina ecommerce website design service. This will help keep you on track throughout the design of your e-commerce website, and set measurable objectives for later. We've seen these goals for North Carolina ecommerce website design projects:

  • Create a new e-commerce site for your North Carolina-based company.
  • Upgrade an old North Carolina e-commerce system into a new one to improve security or functionality.
  • To redesign an e-commerce site 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.

We've provided such North Carolina ecommerce development solutions before and are excited by the prospect of helping with your new ecommerce website design! If your North Carolina e-commerce company needs help putting together a list of goals for your ecommerce website just reach out to our team for assistance!

Questions to Ask Your North Carolina Ecommerce Web Designer

There are numerous questions to ask your North Carolina ecommerce web development 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. Pay attention to how receptive the sales team is to being asked detailed questions. You'll get a good idea for how things will be when the North Carolina ecommerce web design service starts up. We get asked these ecommerce development questions a lot by North Carolina e-commerce businesses:

  • Is your ecommerce web development outsourced? WebCitz doesn't outsource ecommerce website development because we have our own Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers for your North Carolina website.
  • 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. We do create 301 redirects for North Carolina ecommerce web designs that will have a different URL structure.
  • Do you create design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design project? WebCitz creates design mockups for all North Carolina WooCommerce developments, but we only create a design mockup for Shopify and BigCommerce projects that have a higher budget for a fully custom North Carolina ecommerce website design.
  • Can you help North Carolina business owners choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz helps clients pick the right platform for their ecommerce websites. The answer is typically dependent upon the web design and ecommerce functionality requirements.
  • How quick is the turnaround time for North Carolina ecommerce development services? WebCitz typically completes most North Carolina-area ecommerce web 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 North Carolina ecommerce website developer's past work or recent reviews? Check out our ecommerce web design portfolio, ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best North Carolina Ecommerce Websites

You should expect North Carolina ecommerce development companies to have a formal process for how a new e-commerce website will be developed. Here is our process for designing North Carolina ecommerce websites:

Multiple Discovery Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your North Carolina 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 Discussion

When you're ready to move forward with our ecommerce website development agency for your North Carolina website development, sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule a kick off 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 North Carolina ecommerce website design is in WordPress with WooCommerce, or your design budget accommodates a custom design in Shopify or BigCommerce, then the first phase of the project will begin with mocking up the design of 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. 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 North Carolina ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Design

The development phase of your North Carolina ecommerce build will be the longest. This includes everything for data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and much 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

As soon as the ecommerce website design project is finished, we'll provide you with any training you need. If you're comfortable with managing the e-commerce site, let's schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your North Carolina e-commerce site! You can even get a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been improving this North Carolina ecommerce development process for more than 18 years. We've created, designed, developed, and launched successful e-commerce sites across the United States!

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!

WebCitz helped the Oshkosh Area Humane Society with our new website and they were great to work with. Responsive, professional and affordable. I think the biggest perk for us was having someone local we could talk to for assistance instead of long wait times. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to start up or revamp their website.
