The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Prince Edward Island Website

If your Prince Edward Island ecommerce company needs a platform recommendation, we need to know what your website's goals are. There is no single ecommerce platform that is perfect for all Prince Edward Island-area websites.

To deliver exceptional ecommerce website design services in Prince Edward Island, we have separate development teams for WooCommerce projects than for Shopify projects. We can provide expert advice and service because our localized ecommerce web developers specialize in their own favorite ecommerce platforms.

Prince Edward Island WooCommerce Web Development Services

The most popular Prince Edward Island website content management system is WordPress. When you run an ecommerce site with WordPress, you'll probably need a WooCommerce website developer in Prince Edward Island.

Our WooCommerce web development team has experience helping startups and existing ecommerce businesses in Prince Edward Island get started with WooCommerce.

Here's why our ecommerce web designers love WooCommerce:

  • If you need a custom template, but have a limited budget, we recommend WordPress or WooCommerce. Based on Understrap, our own WooCommerce theme is a good starting point for Prince Edward Island WooCommerce web developments. Theme development within Shopify is often more expensive for Prince Edward Island ecommerce clients.
  • If your Prince Edward Island small business site runs on WordPress, we recommend WooCommerce. It doesn't make sense to spend a lot of time and money redoing your content-based website just to add ecommerce.
  • WooCommerce is a good open-source option for Prince Edward Island web agencies. You don't have to pay a monthly fee to use WordPress or WooCommerce. Alternatively, Shopify has high monthly fees to use the platform and their apps are often much more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce plugins.
  • For Prince Edward Island small businesses that need a product builder, we recommend 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 Prince Edward Island web companies running Shopify that offer product configurators.
  • If you're in an industry that's not supported by Shopify, try WooCommerce.

Prince Edward Island Shopify Web Development Services

Shopify is the most popular web-based ecommerce platform. If you want to run an ecommerce website in Prince Edward Island, you'll probably need a Shopify web developer.

Our Shopify web development team has experience designing websites for new and existing businesses throughout Prince Edward Island within the Shopify platform.

Here are some reasons our ecommerce web designers like Shopify:

  • For Prince Edward Island merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. Shopify allows you to run an ecommerce business in Prince Edward Island without the hassle of constantly updating plugins or software versions.
  • For Prince Edward Island web companies that don't need a lot of custom features, we recommend Shopify. The cost of developing custom functionality with Shopify is higher than with WordPress. Additionally, you'll find getting Shopify apps often require monthly subscriptions versus one-time purchases for WordPress plugins.
  • We recommend Shopify for Prince Edward Island ecommerce businesses that rely heavily on fast delivery times for development and marketing initiatives. It's faster to test out a new product on a Shopify website and cycle through different apps and ideas for conversion optimization.

5 Ways to Grow Your Ecommerce Business

Prince Edward Island Ecommerce Website Developers

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

Prince Edward Island ecommerce sites that don't perform, don't function, or don't convert well might need a remake.

You should approach Prince Edward Island ecommerce redesign projects with exceptional care. For instance, you may lose search placements and online sales if your Prince Edward Island 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 ecommerce website overhaul in Prince Edward Island. Here are some of the important factors to consider when remaking Prince Edward Island ecommerce websites:

  • You have an ecommerce website in Prince Edward Island. 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 is also advisable to maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Prince Edward Island website.
  • How do customers like your Prince Edward Island site? Making big changes to your website is okay if your online shoppers aren't happy. Consider being more conservative with design tweaks if your conversion rates are already good.
  • Are you migrating ecommerce platforms? If so, you need to understand the new Prince Edward Island site won't work like your old one did. Things like entering products, fulfilling orders, updating customer info, and going through check out will be different.

Questions to Ask Your Prince Edward Island Ecommerce Website Developer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce web design agency in Prince Edward Island. 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 Prince Edward Island ecommerce web development service starts up. Here are some common ecommerce website development questions we get asked by ecommerce businesses in and around Prince Edward Island:

  • Do you make design mockups before starting a new ecommerce web development? WebCitz creates design mockups for all Prince Edward Island WooCommerce developments, but we only create a design mockup for Shopify projects that have a higher budget for a fully custom Prince Edward Island ecommerce website development.

  • What's the turnaround time for Prince Edward Island ecommerce web design services? WebCitz typically completes most Prince Edward Island-area ecommerce website design projects within 3-4 months, but they can take up to 9-12 months for highly complex ecommerce websites.

How We Design the Best Prince Edward Island Ecommerce Sites

Efforts to design an ecommerce website in Prince Edward Island should follow a formal process. Here is our process for designing Prince Edward Island ecommerce websites:

1.) Multiple Discovery Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your Prince Edward Island business, your ecommerce history, your development expectations, and your future plans. This helps ensure everyone working on your project has an opportunity to voice their opinion, which goes a long way to minimizing confusion throughout the ecommerce project.

2.) Kickoff Discussion

If you're happy with our ecommerce web development firm for your Prince Edward Island website development, just sign the proposal, pay a down payment, and schedule your kickoff 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.

3.) Design Mockup or Theme Selection

We'll start with mockups for your Prince Edward Island ecommerce development if it's built in WordPress with WooCommerce or if your budget allows a custom design built in Shopify. This helps everyone agree on the look and feel of your website before an ecommerce developer starts working on it. Alternatively, if you selected a template-based approach within Shopify, this is the phase where we start helping you select a template for your Prince Edward Island ecommerce site.

4.) Ecommerce Web Design

The longest part of your Prince Edward Island ecommerce build will be the development. Data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and more! Throughout the process, you'll be able to follow along via a password-protected development website.

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.
