The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your South Carolina Website

If your South Carolina e-commerce company needs a platform recommendation, we need to know what your website's goals are. There is no single e-commerce platform that is perfect for all South Carolina-area websites.

To deliver exceptional ecommerce development services in South Carolina, we have separate development teams for WooCommerce projects than for Shopify projects. We can provide expert advice and service because our local ecommerce web developers specialize in their own preferred ecommerce platforms.

South Carolina WooCommerce Web Development Services

The most popular South Carolina website content management system is WordPress. If you want an ecommerce website using WordPress, you'll likely need a WooCommerce website developer in South Carolina.

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

Here are some of the reasons our ecommerce website designers tend to recommend WooCommerce:

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for South Carolina web design projects that require a custom designed theme, but are working on a limited budget. We have our own internally developed WooCommerce theme, based on Understrap, which is a great starting point for a custom-designed South Carolina WooCommerce web site. Theme development within Shopify is often more expensive for South Carolina e-commerce clients.
  • If your South Carolina business already has a WordPress site, we recommend WooCommerce. When you like the look and feel of your content-based website, why spend time and money redesigning it just to add ecommerce?
  • The web companies in South Carolina 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 has high monthly fees to use the platform and their apps are often much more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce plugins.
  • Most South Carolina businesses that want a product builder should consider 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. Don't worry though, there are third-party apps for South Carolina websites running Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • WooCommerce is great if you're in an industry that's not accepted by Shopify.

South Carolina Shopify Website 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 web designer in South Carolina.

Our Shopify web development team has experience designing websites for new and existing businesses throughout South Carolina within the Shopify platform.

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

  • For South Carolina merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. If you want to run an ecommerce business in South Carolina, you don't have to worry about constantly updating plugins or software.
  • When South Carolina web companies don't need a lot of custom functionality, we recommend Shopify. 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.
  • The best e-commerce platform for South Carolina businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing is Shopify. For testing out a new product, it's usually faster to set up a Shopify website and go through various apps and design ideas to test conversion rate optimization.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

You should approach South Carolina e-commerce redesign projects with exceptional care. For instance, you may lose search rankings and online sales if your South Carolina ecommerce website designer 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 e-commerce website redesign in South Carolina. You should consider these factors when redesigning South Carolina ecommerce sites:

  • You have an e-commerce site in South Carolina. How do people get there? It's important to maintain URL structures or implement 301 redirects if most of your online sales come from organic search traffic. Maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and content throughout the development of your South Carolina website.
  • What do customers think of your South Carolina website? If your online shoppers aren't happy with the design of the website then it is okay to make big changes. If your conversion rates are already good, maybe you should consider being more conservative with design changes.
  • Are you migrating e-commerce platforms? It will work different than your old website, if that's the case. You'll have to be prepared to change how you enter products, fill out orders, update customer info, and checkout.

Determine Goals for Your South Carolina Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in South Carolina. Before hiring a local ecommerce website developer, you should put together a list of goals you'd like to see achieved through the South Carolina ecommerce web design service. This will help keep you on track throughout the design of your e-commerce website, and set measurable objectives for later. We've seen these goals for South Carolina ecommerce website design projects:

  • Create a new e-commerce site for your South Carolina-based company.
  • Upgrade an old South Carolina e-commerce system into a new one to improve security or functionality.
  • To redesign an e-commerce site to improve user experience (UX), reduce bounce rates, and improve conversion rates.
  • To make shopping faster and the website more responsive.
  • To fix web accessibility issues for ADA and WCAG compliance.

We've provided such South Carolina ecommerce website design solutions before and are excited by the prospect of helping with your new ecommerce website design! If your South Carolina 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 South Carolina Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce development agency in South Carolina. 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 South Carolina ecommerce website development service starts up. We get asked these ecommerce web design questions a lot by South Carolina e-commerce businesses:

  • Is your ecommerce development outsourced? WebCitz doesn't outsource ecommerce web development because we have our own Shopify and WooCommerce developers for your South Carolina website.
  • When the URLs change, do you create 301 redirects? WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, but this is often not possible during platform migrations. We do create 301 redirects for South Carolina ecommerce website developments that will have a different URL structure.
  • Do you create design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design project? WebCitz creates design mockups for all South Carolina WooCommerce developments, but we only create a design mockup for Shopify projects that have a higher budget for a fully custom South Carolina ecommerce web design.
  • Can you help South Carolina business owners choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz helps clients pick the right platform for their ecommerce websites. Generally, the answer depends on your web design and e-commerce needs.
  • How quick is the turnaround time for South Carolina ecommerce website design services? WebCitz typically completes most South Carolina-area ecommerce development projects within 3-4 months, but they can take up to 9-12 months for highly complex e-commerce websites.

How We Design the Best South Carolina Ecommerce Websites

Efforts to design an e-commerce website in South Carolina should follow a formal process. Here is our process for designing South Carolina ecommerce websites:

Multiple Discovery Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your South Carolina 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

When you're ready to move forward with our ecommerce web design agency for your South Carolina website development, sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule a 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 Mockups or Template Selection

If your future South Carolina ecommerce website design is in WordPress with WooCommerce, or your design budget accommodates a custom design in Shopify, then the first phase of the project will begin with mocking up the design of your website. 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. Alternatively, if you selected a template-based approach within Shopify, this is the phase where we start helping you select a theme for your South Carolina ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Design

The development phase of your South Carolina ecommerce build will be the longest. 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

As soon as the ecommerce web development project is finished, we'll provide you with any training you need. If you're comfortable with managing the e-commerce site, let's schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your South Carolina e-commerce site! You can even get a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been improving this South Carolina ecommerce website development process for more than 18 years. We've created, designed, developed, and launched successful e-commerce sites across 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!

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!!!
