New Shopify Website Development

Are you starting your first ecommerce website? After talking to our ecommerce consultants, if Shopify seems right for your unique business needs, we'll be happy to setup a new Shopify site for you! The best part of our jobs at WebCitz is helping new companies get started with Shopify. Let's go over all the best parts of Shopify, including its wealth of marketplace themes, apps, and how to add products, configure your store, and more! You can rest assured WebCitz will have options to help you with your new ecommerce website development project when you hire us!

Shopify Developments using a Pre-Built Theme

Let's be honest, not every ecommerce website needs to be built from scratch. It might sound like a good idea to create a totally custom experience, but it often results in some incredibly expensive quotes for development. We can help you develop your project with a pretty good cost saving compared to custom theme development if you select a pre-built Shopify Liquid theme for our developers to use. There are advantages to a custom theme though, like being able to control all aspects of the design, getting faster page loads, and having a cleaner look.

Shopify Developments using a Custom-Built Theme

Do you want a completely custom design for your ecommerce site? We can create wireframes and mockups for your custom design, then integrate it into Shopify's Liquid framework. It's the best way to develop a custom theme without all the bloat, code issues, and speed problems found in 3rd-party themes. However, be prepared to spend more on the development project, since this adds more than a month to the design and development cycle.

Headless Shopify Developers

Headless ecommerce has a lot of potential. WebCitz has worked on headless ecommerce projects involving Shopify and Laravel as well as Shopify and JS frameworks. Even though we've done headless ecommerce projects with Shopify and WordPress, we'd rather not push that service because it has some unique complexities. You can make better headless Shopify storefronts if you use Laravel or a JS framework.

What is Headless Ecommerce within Shopify?

A headless ecommerce site separates the frontend from the backend. You can use WordPress, Joomla, Contentful, Laravel, or any other non-ecommerce platform to build your frontend. Then, when you're ready to add ecommerce functionality to the frontend, have your developer use the Shopify API to pull in product / category data. This is when they'd build out the cart and checkout experiences, too.

Benefits of Headless Shopify?

Here are some of the benefits of headless Shopify ecommerce:

  • Control over the user experience, breaking free from Shopify's CMS constraints.
  • You can keep a WordPress blog in the /blog folder instead of moving it to a subdomain.
  • You can add custom functionality to your entire site, without being limited to Shopify apps.

Downsides to Headless Shopify?

Here are some of the downsides to headless Shopify ecommerce:

  • Much higher development costs, since your developer will have to build out two environments and connect them.
  • Longer development turnaround because of more work within the project.
  • You need a web host for the front end.

Shopify API Developers

Are you looking for custom functionality for your Shopify site? You might be able to get help from the Shopify developers at WebCitz! We've developed several private apps in the past, including integrations with Hana POS and many other 3rd party systems. If you are starting a new development project and need a lot of API integration work, we might end up recommending BigCommerce instead since it has a more developer-friendly API.

Shopify Private App Developers

We've developed plenty of private Shopify apps. While working on Shopify development projects, we often find that client functionality requests can't be handled by native Shopify features. In some cases, an existing app wasn't available, so our developers had to connect to the Shopify API through platforms like Laravel to build the custom functionality. Although we don't want to develop large Shopify apps, we can solve problems where a few days or a week of work can result in a pretty elegant solution to a problem your ecommerce storefront is facing. Please don't ask us to handle a Shopify app project that will take months to develop and require weekly support!

Shopify PIM (Product Information Manager)

Magento merchants moving to Shopify are most often challenged by losing their product and category management tools. We might be able to help you if your business has complex product data, which might include tens of thousands of products, a lot of custom options, a lot of configurable attributes, complex product relationships or other non-standard product data structures. We've developed our own Product Information Manager (PIM) for Laravel that helps Magento merchants regain some of their product / category management functionality that was lost during the migration to Shopify. Don't expect this Laravel / Shopify PIM to be ready for a demo right away because it has to go through customizations and integrations to meet your business requirements. Before we can set up examples or demos, we'll need to review your product data in Magento and/or Shopify. Get in touch if you're interested in learning more.

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!!!

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.
