The Best Ecommerce Platforms for Pet Company Websites

If you're an e-commerce pet company, we need to know what your website's goals are. There isn't one e-commerce platform that works for all pet companies.

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.

Pet Store WooCommerce Web Development Services

The most popular pet company website content management system is WordPress. When you run an ecommerce website with WordPress, you'll probably need a WooCommerce web designer for pet companies.

For pet company websites, we help startups and existing companies get started with WooCommerce.

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

  • If you need a custom theme, but have a limited budget, we recommend WordPress or WooCommerce. We have our own custom WooCommerce theme that is based on Understrap and makes a great starting point for WooCommerce websites for pet stores. Shopify or BigCommerce theme development can be more expensive for pet company.
  • If your pet company 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 pet companies 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 pet companies that require a product builder. It is simply easier to develop a custom product builder in WordPress than most other platforms. However, there are apps for pet companies using BigCommerce or Shopify that offer basic configurator functionality.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify or BigCommerce.

Pet Store Shopify Web 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 designer for pet companies.

Our Shopify web development team has experience designing websites for new and existing pet companies within the Shopify platform.

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

  • We recommend Shopify for pet stores interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. Shopify allows you to run an ecommerce business for your pet company without the hassle of constantly updating plugins or software versions.
  • We recommend Shopify for pet 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.
  • We recommend Shopify for pet companies that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing initiatives. 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.

Pet Store BigCommerce Web Design Services

BigCommerce is arguably the most flexible web-based ecommerce platform available for pet companies due to its robust API functionality. To run an ecommerce website using BigCommerce you will likely be looking for a BigCommerce website designer for your pet company.

Our BigCommerce web development team has experience helping startup and existing pet company 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 pet companies 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.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for extensive content-based websites that don't support ecommerce. We can implement "headless e-commerce" for your pet company, which is the process of integrating a platform like BigCommerce through APIs and custom web programming.
  • We recommend BigCommerce because of their robust API, which is exceptionally helpful for building out custom functionality in pet company ecommerce websites.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for pet stores who want a hosted ecommerce platform, but don't like Shopify.

Redesigning an Existing Pet Company Ecommerce Website

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

E-commerce redesign projects for pet companies deserve 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 pet companies. You should consider these factors when redesigning pet store ecommerce sites:

  • You have an e-commerce site for your pet company. 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. It's also good to keep the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your pet company website.
  • What do pet stores think about your pet company website? Making big changes to your website is okay if your online shoppers aren't happy. It's advisable to be cautious with design changes if you've already got good conversion rates.
  • Are you moving 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.

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.

Corey was absolutely amazing in helping me with my issue. He was encouraging as we worked through things that to me were huge, but he made them seem small. Will definitely use WebCitz again!!!

Determine the Goals of Your Pet Store Ecommerce Web Design Service

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

  • Create a new pet company e-commerce website.
  • Upgrade an old pet store 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.
  • Improving the shopping experience by making it faster and more responsive.
  • To fix web accessibility problems for ADA and WCAG compliance.

Our pet store ecommerce development services have helped other businesses before, so we're excited to help with your new ecommerce website! We can help you put together a list of goals for your pet company if you need it!

Questions to Ask An Ecommerce Web Designer for Pet Stores

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce web design company specializing in pet companies. 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 pet store e-commerce web design service starts up. We get asked these ecommerce web development questions a lot by pet company e-commerce businesses:

  • Is your ecommerce development outsourced? At WebCitz, we don't outsource e-commerce web design services because we have our own team of Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers.
  • If you change URLs, do you set up 301 redirects? While WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, sometimes it can't be done. We create 301 redirects for pet store ecommerce developments that have different URL structures.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? WebCitz makes design mockups for all pet store WooCommerce development projects, but we don't create design mockups for Shopify and BigCommerce projects that are on a restricted budget.
  • Can you help pet stores choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz helps pet companies choose the right ecommerce platform. Generally, the answer depends on your web design and e-commerce needs.
  • How quick is the turnaround time for pet store ecommerce web development services? WebCitz typically completes most pet company ecommerce development projects within 3-4 months, but they can take up to 9-12 months for highly complex e-commerce websites.
  • Does your pet company 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 Pet Store Ecommerce Websites

Efforts to design an e-commerce website for your pet company should follow a formal process. Here's how we make pet company ecommerce websites:

Discovery Phone Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your pet 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 e-commerce agency for your pet company, just sign the proposal, pay a down payment, and schedule your kickoff call! Everybody will have a chance to talk about how the project will unfold, who will handle each stage of the design, and how long the turnaround time will be for completion.

Design Mockups or Template Search

We'll start with mockups for your pet store 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 way, everyone is on the same page about how your site will look and feel before an e-commerce developer starts. This is where we start helping you select a theme for your pet company ecommerce site if you opted for a template-based approach within Shopify and BigCommerce.

Ecommerce Web Design

The longest part of your pet company 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 pet company e-commerce storefront! If interested, we can even share with you a checklist for the launch of the ecommerce site!

We've been working on our pet store 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!

Additional Services for Pet Company Ecommerce Web Design Projects

The development of the website is only one part of a successful ecommerce storefront for your pet company. Here are a few optional extras that will help you get the most from your pet company e-commerce website:

  • You can get multimedia to showcase your pet company from our on-site video production team.
