Pennsylvania Ecommerce Website Design Consultants

Our ecommerce website developers have built custom websites for Pennsylvania-area businesses for more than 18 years.

Knowing how your Pennsylvania ecommerce business works is key to creating an effective ecommerce website. The things we talk about with you are things like how you've run an ecommerce business in Pennsylvania, what platforms you've used, how your customers 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 Pennsylvania-based business. If you're building a new Pennsylvania ecommerce site or redesigning an existing one, choosing the right platform is key.

An ecommerce website design project in Pennsylvania needs to start with a clear understanding of the business goals. We'll help you determine the best metrics to use to gauge the success of your Pennsylvania ecommerce development service, regardless if you choose a local Pennsylvania e-commerce developer or a national ecommerce web development company. We'll use this information to set expectations on your Pennsylvania ecommerce web design so you get the best website for your storefront.

We'll even offer optional Pennsylvania digital marketing and website support services after your Pennsylvania ecommerce website is done!

Benefits of a Custom Pennsylvania Ecommerce Website Solution

Our agency was founded on the principle of providing custom website solutions in Pennsylvania and nationwide. In the Pennsylvania-area, we've worked with local clients to understand their ecommerce business and build a custom website that's tailored to their online brand. As an e-commerce developer, we've worked on a lot of custom projects, like:

  • Headless ecommerce websites within Magento, Shopify, or BigCommerce using tools like Nuxt.js or Laravel to bring together the CMS and ecommerce platform.
  • Product Information Management (PIM) systems to streamline BigCommerce and Shopify product data entry
  • Sync inventory, list products, and fulfill orders across multiple platforms with multichannel ecommerce.
  • Amazon and eBay integrations to list products in third-party channels.
  • Development of mobile apps for B2B storefronts to boost online sales.
  • Solutions for migrating data between platforms, importing product data from suppliers, or exporting sales data.

You'll be in good hands with us when it comes to Pennsylvania e-commerce website development. We will work with your Pennsylvania team to understand your functionality requirements, outline the deliverables and turnaround time, and work with you after the launch to ensure everything is running smoothly.

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Pennsylvania Website

If your Pennsylvania e-commerce company needs a platform recommendation, we need to know what your website's goals are. There isn't one e-commerce platform that works for all Pennsylvania businesses.

For WooCommerce, Shopify and BigCommerce 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.

Pennsylvania WooCommerce Website Design Services

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

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

Here's why our ecommerce website developers love 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 Pennsylvania WooCommerce web site. Theme development for Pennsylvania e-commerce clients is usually more expensive on Shopify and BigCommerce.
  • If your Pennsylvania business 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 web companies in Pennsylvania who prefer open-source software use WooCommerce. You don't have to pay a monthly fee for WordPress or WooCommerce, just for web hosting. If you want to use Shopify or BigCommerce, you might have to pay a lot of money for the platform, and their apps are often a lot more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce plugins.
  • For Pennsylvania businesses that need a product builder, we recommend WooCommerce. It is simply easier to develop a custom product builder in WordPress than most other platforms. However, there are apps for Pennsylvania web companies running BigCommerce or Shopify that offer product configurators.
  • WooCommerce is great if you're in an industry that's not accepted by Shopify or BigCommerce.

Pennsylvania Shopify Web Development Services

Shopify is the most popular web-based ecommerce platform. If you want to run an e-commerce website using Shopify, you'll need a Shopify web designer in Pennsylvania.

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

Here are some reasons our ecommerce developers like Shopify:

  • For Pennsylvania merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in Pennsylvania without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • For Pennsylvania web companies that don't need a lot of custom features, we recommend Shopify. It's more expensive to develop custom functionality in Shopify than WordPress. Additionally, Shopify apps often have monthly fees versus WooCommerce plugins that are more affordable.
  • Shopify is a great option for Pennsylvania e-commerce businesses that need fast turnaround times for marketing and development. It's faster to test out a new product on a Shopify site and cycle through different apps and ideas for conversion optimization.

Pennsylvania BigCommerce Web Development Services

BigCommerce is arguably the most flexible web-based ecommerce platform available in Pennsylvania due to its robust API functionality. If you want to run an ecommerce site with BigCommerce you'll probably need a Pennsylvania BigCommerce web developer.

We've helped startups and existing e-commerce businesses in the Pennsylvania area build out and improve their online stores.

Our e-commerce website developers recommend BigCommerce for a few reasons:

  • We recommend BigCommerce to Pennsylvania companies looking for 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 as an external ecommerce platform for legacy websites that can't fully migrate their website to a new platform. We can build out a "headless e-commerce" solution for your Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania ecommerce websites.
  • If you don't like Shopify but want a hosted ecommerce platform, we recommend BigCommerce.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

Pennsylvania ecommerce sites that don't perform, don't function, or don't convert well might need a redesign or overhaul.

Every Pennsylvania e-commerce redesign project deserves 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 an e-commerce website redesign in Pennsylvania. Here are some of the things to keep in mind when redesigning Pennsylvania ecommerce sites:

  • Where can people find your Pennsylvania e-commerce site? If most online sales are coming from organic search traffic it will be critical to maintain URL structures or implement 301 redirects. Maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and content throughout the development of your Pennsylvania website.
  • How do customers like your Pennsylvania site? 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.
  • Do you plan to migrate your e-commerce platform? 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.

Determine Goals for Your Pennsylvania Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in Pennsylvania. You should make a list of the goals you'd like to see achieved by a Pennsylvania ecommerce 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 Pennsylvania ecommerce website design projects:

  • To build out an online store for a new Pennsylvania business.
  • To migrate an old Pennsylvania ecommerce site to a new platform to improve functionality, or site security.
  • To redesign an existing Pennsylvania e-commerce website in the same platform to improve user experience (UX), reduce bounce rates, and improve conversion rates.
  • To make shopping faster and the website more responsive.
  • For ADA and WCAG compliance.

Our Pennsylvania ecommerce web development services have helped other businesses before, so we're excited to help with your new ecommerce website! If your Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce website development agency in Pennsylvania. 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 Pennsylvania ecommerce website design service starts up. Here are a few of the ecommerce development questions we get from businesses in and around Pennsylvania:

  • Are you outsourcing ecommerce web development? WebCitz does not outsource ecommerce website development services because we have our own team of Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers for your Pennsylvania e-commerce website.
  • When the URLs change, do you create 301 redirects? It's hard to keep the URL structure the same during platform migrations, but WebCitz tries. We create 301 redirects for Pennsylvania ecommerce web designs that have different URL structures.
  • Do you create design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design project? For Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania ecommerce development.
  • Can you help Pennsylvania business owners choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz helps Pennsylvania clients choose the right ecommerce platform. Generally, the answer depends on your web design and e-commerce needs.
  • Can you tell me how fast Pennsylvania ecommerce web development works? WebCitz usually gets most Pennsylvania-area ecommerce sites up and running within 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complicated ones.
  • Your Pennsylvania ecommerce website developer should have a ecommerce portfolio or client reviews. WebCitz has an ecommerce web design portfolio, numerous ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews to share!

How We Design the Best Pennsylvania Ecommerce Websites

Efforts to design an e-commerce website in Pennsylvania should follow a formal process. Here's how we make Pennsylvania ecommerce websites:

Discovery Phone Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your Pennsylvania company, your ecommerce history, your development expectations, and your future plans. Having everyone involved in the ecommerce project voice their opinion helps minimize confusion.

Kickoff Conversation

If you feel confident about our ecommerce website design firm for your Pennsylvania website development, go ahead and sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule your 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 Mockup or Theme Selection

We'll start with mockups for your Pennsylvania 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. 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 Pennsylvania ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Design

The longest part of your Pennsylvania ecommerce build will be the development. It includes data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and more! A password-protected development website lets you follow along.

Training & Launch

When the ecommerce web development project is nearly done, we'll start working with you on training. When you are comfortable managing the ecommerce website, we'll schedule a time that works for everyone involved to launch your future Pennsylvania e-commerce storefront! We can even share a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been improving this Pennsylvania ecommerce website development process for more than 18 years. We have incredible experience designing, developing, and launching successful e-commerce websites throughout the United States!

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!
