The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Washington Website

To recommend the best ecommerce platform for your Washington e-commerce company we will need to talk with you about your website's objectives. There isn't one e-commerce platform that's perfect for every Washington website.

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

Washington WooCommerce Web Design Services

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

In Washington, we help startups and e-commerce businesses get started with WooCommerce.

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

  • If you need a custom theme, but have a limited budget, we recommend WordPress or WooCommerce. We have our own internally developed WooCommerce theme, based on Understrap, which is a great starting point for a custom-designed Washington WooCommerce web site. Theme development for Washington e-commerce clients is usually more expensive on Shopify and BigCommerce.
  • If your Washington business website runs on WordPress, 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.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Washington web companies who prefer open-source software. You don't have to pay a monthly fee for WordPress or WooCommerce, just for web hosting. If you want to use Shopify or BigCommerce, you might have to pay a lot of money for the platform, and their apps are often a lot more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce plugins.
  • Most Washington businesses that want a product builder should consider WooCommerce. It is simply easier to develop a custom product builder in WordPress than most other platforms. Don't worry though, there are third-party apps for Washington websites running BigCommerce or Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify or BigCommerce.

Washington Shopify Website Design Services

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

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

Here are some reasons our ecommerce website designers like Shopify:

  • Washington merchants looking for a hosted ecommerce platform should check out Shopify. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in Washington without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • We recommend Shopify for Washington web companies without a lot of custom functionality requirements. The cost of developing custom functionality with Shopify is higher than with WordPress. Additionally, Shopify apps often have monthly fees versus WooCommerce plugins that are more affordable.
  • Shopify is a great option for Washington e-commerce businesses that need fast turnaround times for marketing and development. It's faster to test out a new product on a Shopify site and cycle through different apps and ideas for conversion optimization.

Washington BigCommerce Web Development Services

BigCommerce is arguably the most flexible web-based ecommerce platform available in Washington due to its robust API functionality. To build a successful BigCommerce website you will need to search for an experienced BigCommerce website designer in Washington.

Our BigCommerce web development team helps startups and existing ecommerce businesses build out and improve their online sites.

Our e-commerce web developers recommend BigCommerce for a few reasons:

  • We recommend BigCommerce for online companies in Washington interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. An advantage of a hosted e-commerce platform is you don't have to worry about updating it like you do with WordPress and WooCommerce.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for extensive content-based websites that don't support ecommerce. We can build out a "headless e-commerce" solution for your Washington business, which is the process of bridging a platform like BigCommerce through APIs and custom web programming to your existing website.
  • BigCommerce has a robust API that's really helpful for building custom functionality in Washington ecommerce sites.
  • Our recommendation for Washington merchants who don't like Shopify but want a hosted ecommerce platform is BigCommerce.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

If you are unhappy with the performance, functionality, or conversion rate of your Washington ecommerce website it might be time to think about a redesign or rehaul of your website.

Take your e-commerce redesign in Washington seriously. You can lose search rankings and sales if your Washington ecommerce website developer 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 Washington. Here are some of the important factors to consider when redesigning Washington ecommerce websites:

  • You have an e-commerce site in Washington. 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. It's also good to keep the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Washington website.
  • What do customers think of your Washington website? Making big changes to your website is okay if your online shoppers aren't happy. If your conversion rates are already good, maybe you should consider being more conservative with design changes.
  • Do you plan to migrate your e-commerce platform? If so, you need to understand the new Washington website 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.

Determine Goals for Your Washington Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building out an ecommerce website in Washington can be an expensive project. Make a list of the things you want your Washington 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 Washington ecommerce website design projects:

  • To build out an online website for a new Washington e-commerce venture.
  • Upgrade an old Washington 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.
  • Improving the shopping experience by making it faster and more responsive.
  • To fix web accessibility issues for ADA and WCAG compliance.

Our Washington ecommerce web design services have helped other businesses before, so we're excited to help with your new ecommerce website! If your Washington 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 Washington Ecommerce Web Designer

There are numerous questions to ask your Washington ecommerce development company before making a hiring decision. 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 Washington ecommerce website development service starts up. Here are some common ecommerce web design questions we get asked by e-commerce businesses in and around Washington:

  • Is your ecommerce website design outsourced? WebCitz doesn't outsource ecommerce development because we have our own Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers for your Washington website.
  • If you change URLs, do you set up 301 redirects? WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, but this is often not possible during platform migrations. We create 301 redirects for Washington ecommerce web developments that have different URL structures.
  • Do you create design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design project? For Washington WooCommerce development, WebCitz creates design mockups. But for Shopify and BigCommerce, we only create design mockups if the budget is high enough for a fully custom Washington ecommerce website development.
  • Are you able to help Washington businesses choose an e-commerce platform? WebCitz helps Washington clients choose the right ecommerce platform. The answer is typically dependent upon the web design and ecommerce functionality requirements.
  • Can you tell me how fast Washington ecommerce web design works? WebCitz usually gets most Washington-area ecommerce sites up and running within 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complicated ones.
  • Have you seen your Washington ecommerce developer's past work or recent reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce web development portfolio, numerous ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews to share!

How We Design the Best Washington Ecommerce Websites

You should expect Washington ecommerce website development agencies to have a formal process for how a new e-commerce website will be developed. Here's how we design Washington ecommerce sites:

Multiple Discovery Phone Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your Washington company, 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.

Kickoff Discussion

When you're ready to move forward with our ecommerce website design firm for your Washington website development, sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule a kick off 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 Selection

We'll start with mockups for your Washington 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 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. If you've chosen a template-based approach within Shopify and BigCommerce, this is the phase where we start helping you pick a theme for your Washington ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Website Development

The longest part of your Washington ecommerce build will be the development. This includes everything for data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and much more! A password-protected development website lets you follow along.

Training & Launch

As soon as the ecommerce web development project is finished, we'll provide you with any training you need. When you are comfortable managing the ecommerce website, we'll schedule a time that works for everyone involved to launch your future Washington e-commerce storefront! You can even get a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been working on our Washington ecommerce website development process for more than 18 years. We've created, designed, developed, and launched successful e-commerce sites across the United States!

Additional Services for Your Washington Ecommerce Web Design Project

There is more to a successful ecommerce web design project in Washington than just the development of the website. Here are some other services, which are completely optional, to help you get the most out of your Washington e-commerce site:

  • We have an on-site video production team to help you showcase your Washington business on the web.
