Pricing for Saskatoon, SK Ecommerce Web Design Services

The cost of our ecommerce web design services is based on the amount of time you can afford to allocate toward the development of your online store. If you are on a tight budget, we recommend you look at a template-based ecommerce website to save money. Alternatively, if customization and performance are of high priority, you could instead consider a from-scratch custom ecommerce website that starts with a design mockup.

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Saskatoon Website

If your Saskatoon 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's perfect for every Saskatoon website.

To deliver amazing ecommerce web design services in Saskatoon, we have different development teams for WooCommerce projects and Shopify projects. We can provide expert advice and service because our local ecommerce website designers specialize in their own preferred ecommerce platforms.

Saskatoon WooCommerce Website Design Services

The most popular Saskatoon website content management system is WordPress. To run an ecommerce website using WordPress you will likely be looking for a WooCommerce website designer in Saskatoon.

Our WooCommerce web development team has experience helping startups and existing e-commerce businesses in Saskatoon get started with WooCommerce.

These are some of the reasons our ecommerce website 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 Saskatoon WooCommerce websites. Shopify theme development can be more expensive for Saskatoon e-commerce clients.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Saskatoon businesses with an existing WordPress website. It doesn't make sense to spend a lot of time and money redesigning your content-based website just to add ecommerce.
  • WooCommerce is a great open-source option for Saskatoon web companies. You don't have to pay a monthly fee to use WordPress or WooCommerce. As an alternative, Shopify has expensive monthly fees (depending on your plan) and their apps are often more expensive than WooCommerce or WordPress plugins.
  • For Saskatoon 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 Saskatoon web companies using Shopify that offer basic configurator functionality.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify.

Saskatoon Shopify Web Development Services

Shopify is the most popular SaaS e-commerce platform. If you want to run an e-commerce website in Saskatoon, you'll probably need a Shopify web developer.

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

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

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

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

Take your e-commerce redesign in Saskatoon seriously. You can lose search rankings and sales if your Saskatoon ecommerce web designer forgets to create 301 redirects, changes your URL structure drastically, or reorganizes your product catalog.

We like to know your whole business before we start an e-commerce website redesign in Saskatoon. Here are some of the things to keep in mind when redesigning Saskatoon ecommerce sites:

  • You have an e-commerce site in Saskatoon. How do people get there? If most online sales are coming from organic search traffic it will be critical to maintain URL structures or implement 301 redirects. It is also advisable to maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Saskatoon website.
  • What do customers think about your Saskatoon 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? If so, understand the new Saskatoon website will function differently than your previous website. Things like entering products, fulfilling orders, updating customer info, and going through check out will be different.

Determine Goals for Your Saskatoon Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in Saskatoon. Make a list of the things you want your Saskatoon e-commerce website to accomplish before you hire a developer. This will help keep you on track during the design of your e-commerce site, and set measurable goals for later. We've seen these goals for Saskatoon ecommerce website design projects:

  • To build out an online store for a new Saskatoon business.
  • Upgrade an old Saskatoon e-commerce system into a new one to improve security or functionality.
  • To redesign an existing Saskatoon e-commerce website in the same platform to improve user experience (UX), reduce bounce rates, and improve conversion rates.
  • To improve the speed and responsiveness of the shopping experience.
  • To fix web accessibility problems for ADA and WCAG compliance.

Our Saskatchewan 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 Saskatoon e-commerce website if you need it!

Questions to Ask Your Saskatoon Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce web development firm in Saskatoon. While the answer will be valuable, how it's delivered should be even more important. Pay attention to whether the sales team is willing to answer detailed questions. You'll get a good idea for how things will be when the Saskatoon ecommerce web design service starts up. Here are a few of the ecommerce website design questions we get from businesses in and around Saskatchewan:

  • Is your ecommerce development outsourced? WebCitz does not outsource ecommerce web development services because we have our own team of Shopify and WooCommerce developers for your Saskatoon e-commerce website.
  • Do you create 301 redirects if the URLs are going to change? While WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, sometimes it can't be done. We create 301 redirects for Saskatoon ecommerce website 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 Saskatoon WooCommerce development projects, but we don't create design mockups for Shopify projects that are on a restricted budget.
  • Do you help Saskatoon business owners select the platform for their e-commerce website? WebCitz helps Saskatoon clients choose the right ecommerce platform. Typically, the answer is based on the web design and ecommerce requirements.
  • What's the turnaround time for Saskatoon ecommerce web design services? WebCitz usually gets Saskatoon ecommerce development projects done in 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complex e-commerce websites.
  • Your Saskatoon ecommerce web developer should have a ecommerce portfolio or client reviews. Check out our ecommerce website development portfolio, ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Saskatoon Ecommerce Websites

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

1.) Multiple Discovery Phone Calls

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

2.) Kickoff Discussion

If you feel confident about our ecommerce web design company for your Saskatoon website development, go ahead and sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule your kick off 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 Mockups or Template Search

We'll start with mockups for your Saskatoon ecommerce website design if it's built in WordPress with WooCommerce or if your budget allows a custom design built in Shopify. 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 Saskatoon ecommerce site if you opted for a template-based approach within Shopify.

4.) Ecommerce Web Development

The longest part of your Saskatoon 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.

5.) Website Launch (Plus Website Training!)

When the ecommerce development project is nearly done, we'll start working with you on training. If you're comfortable with managing the e-commerce site, let's schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your Saskatoon e-commerce site! If interested, we can even share with you a checklist for the launch of the ecommerce site!

We've been working on our Saskatchewan ecommerce web development process for more than 18 years. We have incredible experience designing, developing, and launching successful e-commerce websites throughout Canada!

Additional Services for Your Saskatoon Ecommerce Web Design Project

The development of the website is only one part of a successful ecommerce storefront in Saskatoon. Here are some other services, which are completely optional, to help you get the most out of your Saskatoon e-commerce site:

  • Let our digital marketers help you rank your ecommerce products higher in Saskatoon search results, or nationwide.
  • We've got a PPC advertising team who can handle any campaign type on Google Ads, Facebook Ads, and Bing Ads.

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!

What can I say about this company? These people that work there? Unbelievable!! It doesn't matter when or why you call, they will help you. The other part of that statement is: I never have to call them! They made a web site for us that works 24/7. But if I do call they actually take care of it right then. ... great bunch of guys...Southwest Radio Church really appreciates you!!

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.
Tara Candland

Tara Candland

Incredibly responsive, fast, and professional. They quickly understood the issue we were having with our site, which was fairly complicated, and were able to resolve it. They kept us updated in lay terms along the way so that we could understand how the issue was progressing.
