The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your North Dakota Website

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

To deliver exceptional ecommerce development services in North Dakota, 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 web developers specialize in their own preferred ecommerce platforms.

North Dakota WooCommerce Web Development Services

The most popular North Dakota website content management system is WordPress. When you run an ecommerce website with WordPress, you'll probably need a WooCommerce web developer in North Dakota.

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

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

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for North Dakota web design projects that require a custom designed theme, but are working on a limited budget. We have our own custom WooCommerce theme that is based on Understrap and makes a great starting point for North Dakota WooCommerce websites. Theme development for North Dakota e-commerce clients is usually more expensive on Shopify and BigCommerce.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for North Dakota businesses with an existing WordPress website. 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 North Dakota web companies who prefer open-source software. You don't have to pay a monthly fee for WordPress or WooCommerce, just for web hosting. As an alternative, Shopify and BigCommerce have expensive monthly fees (depending on your plan) and their apps are often more expensive than WooCommerce or WordPress plugins.
  • Most North Dakota 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. However, there are apps for North Dakota web companies running BigCommerce or Shopify that offer product configurators.
  • If you're in an industry that's not supported by Shopify or BigCommerce, try WooCommerce.

North Dakota Shopify Web 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 North Dakota.

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

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

  • We recommend Shopify for North Dakota merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in North Dakota without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • When North Dakota web companies don't need a lot of custom functionality, we recommend Shopify. The cost of developing custom functionality with Shopify is higher than with 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 North Dakota e-commerce businesses that need fast turnaround times for marketing and development. 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 Dakota BigCommerce Web Design Services

Because of its API, BigCommerce is probably the most flexible web-based ecommerce platform available in North Dakota. If you want to run an ecommerce site with BigCommerce you'll probably need a North Dakota BigCommerce website designer.

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

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

  • We recommend BigCommerce for online companies in North Dakota 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.
  • BigCommerce can be an external ecommerce platform for legacy sites that can't migrate to a new platform. We can use a "headless e-commerce" approach for your North Dakota company, which is the integration of a platform like BigCommerce through APIs and custom web programming to your legacy website.
  • BigCommerce has a robust API that makes it easy to create custom features for your North Dakota ecommerce site.
  • If you don't like Shopify but want a hosted ecommerce platform, we recommend BigCommerce.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

You should approach North Dakota e-commerce redesign projects with exceptional care. For instance, you may lose search rankings and online sales if your North Dakota ecommerce website 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 Dakota. You should consider these factors when redesigning North Dakota ecommerce sites:

  • You have an e-commerce site in North Dakota. How do people get there? 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 North Dakota website.
  • What do customers think about your North Dakota website? If your online shoppers aren't happy with the design of the website then it is okay to make big changes. 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 North Dakota website will function differently than your previous website. The way you enter products, fulfill orders, update customer information, and go through the checkout will be different.

Determine Goals for Your North Dakota Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building out an ecommerce website in North Dakota 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 Dakota ecommerce development 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 Dakota ecommerce website design projects:

  • Create a new e-commerce site for your North Dakota-based company.
  • Upgrade an old North Dakota e-commerce system into a new one to improve security or functionality.
  • 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 problems for ADA and WCAG compliance.

We've provided such North Dakota ecommerce web development solutions before and are excited by the prospect of helping with your new ecommerce website design! We can help you put together a list of goals for your North Dakota e-commerce website if you need it!

Questions to Ask Your North Dakota Ecommerce Web Designer

There are numerous questions to ask your North Dakota ecommerce website development agency 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 Dakota ecommerce website design service starts up. We get asked these ecommerce development questions a lot by North Dakota e-commerce businesses:

  • Is your ecommerce web development outsourced? At WebCitz, we don't outsource ecommerce website development services because we have our own team of Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers.
  • When the URLs change, do you create 301 redirects? While WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, sometimes it can't be done. We do create 301 redirects for North Dakota ecommerce web designs that will have a different URL structure.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? For North Dakota WooCommerce development, WebCitz creates design mockups. But for Shopify and BigCommerce, we only create design mockups if the budget is high enough for a fully custom North Dakota ecommerce development.
  • Do you help North Dakota business owners select the platform for their e-commerce website? WebCitz does help North Dakota 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 North Dakota ecommerce web development works? WebCitz usually gets North Dakota ecommerce website development projects done in 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complex e-commerce websites.
  • Have you seen your North Dakota ecommerce web designer's past work or recent reviews? Check out our ecommerce website design portfolio, ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best North Dakota Ecommerce Websites

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

Multiple Discovery Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your North Dakota 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

If you're happy with our ecommerce website development firm for your North Dakota 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 Search

If your future North Dakota 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 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 and BigCommerce, this is the phase where we start helping you pick a theme for your North Dakota ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Development

The longest phase of your North Dakota 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.

Website Launch (Plus Website Training!)

As soon as the ecommerce development 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 Dakota e-commerce site! We can even share a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

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.

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!
