The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Waukesha Website

To recommend the best ecommerce platform for your Waukesha 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 Waukesha website.

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

Waukesha WooCommerce Web Development Services

WordPress is the most popular content management system in Waukesha. When you run an ecommerce website with WordPress, you'll probably need a WooCommerce web designer in Waukesha.

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

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 internally developed WooCommerce theme, based on Understrap, which is a great starting point for a custom-designed Waukesha WooCommerce web site. Theme development for Waukesha e-commerce clients is usually more expensive on Shopify and BigCommerce.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Waukesha businesses with an existing WordPress website. When you like the look and feel of your content-based website, why spend time and money redesigning it just to add ecommerce?
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Waukesha web companies who prefer open-source software. You don't have to pay a monthly fee for WordPress or WooCommerce, just for web hosting. As an alternative, Shopify and BigCommerce have expensive monthly fees (depending on your plan) and their apps are often more expensive than WooCommerce or WordPress plugins.
  • For Waukesha 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 Waukesha web companies running BigCommerce or Shopify that offer product configurators.
  • If you're in an industry that's not supported by Shopify or BigCommerce, try WooCommerce.

Waukesha Shopify Web Development Services

Shopify is the most popular web-based ecommerce platform. If you want to run an e-commerce website using Shopify, you'll need a Shopify web designer in Waukesha.

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

Our ecommerce web developers love Shopify for these reasons:

  • We recommend Shopify for Waukesha merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in Waukesha without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • When Waukesha web companies don't need a lot of custom functionality, we recommend Shopify. It's more expensive to develop custom functionality in Shopify than WordPress. Additionally, Shopify apps often have monthly fees that really add up, in comparison to the less expensive WordPress plugin options.
  • Shopify is a great option for Waukesha e-commerce businesses that need fast turnaround times for marketing and development. 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.

Waukesha BigCommerce Web Development Services

BigCommerce is arguably the most flexible web-based ecommerce platform available in Waukesha due to its robust API functionality. If you want to run an ecommerce site with BigCommerce you'll probably need a Waukesha BigCommerce web developer.

Our BigCommerce web development team has experience helping startup and existing Waukesha-area ecommerce businesses build out and improve their online websites.

Here are a few reasons why our e-commerce website developers love BigCommerce:

  • We recommend BigCommerce for online companies in Waukesha 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.
  • BigCommerce can be an external ecommerce platform for legacy sites that can't migrate to a new platform. We can build out a "headless e-commerce" solution for your Waukesha 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 makes it easy to create custom features for your Waukesha ecommerce site.
  • If you don't like Shopify but want a hosted ecommerce platform, we recommend BigCommerce.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

Take your e-commerce redesign in Waukesha seriously. For instance, you may lose search rankings and online sales if your Waukesha ecommerce web 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 Waukesha. You should consider these factors when redesigning Waukesha ecommerce sites:

  • Where can people find your Waukesha e-commerce site? If your online sales come mostly from organic search traffic, you'll need to maintain URL structures and use 301 redirects. Maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and content throughout the development of your Waukesha website.
  • What do customers think about your Waukesha 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, understand the new Waukesha website will function differently than your previous website. You'll have to be prepared to change how you enter products, fill out orders, update customer info, and checkout.

Determine Goals for Your Waukesha Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building out an ecommerce website in Waukesha can be an expensive project. Make a list of the things you want your Waukesha e-commerce website to accomplish before you hire a developer. 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 Waukesha ecommerce website design projects:

  • Create a new e-commerce site for your Waukesha-based company.
  • To migrate an old Waukesha ecommerce site to a new platform to improve functionality, or site security.
  • Redesigning an e-commerce site in order 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 problems for ADA and WCAG compliance.

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

There are numerous questions to ask your Waukesha ecommerce web 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 how receptive the sales team is to being asked detailed questions. You'll get a good idea for how things will be when the Waukesha ecommerce web design service starts up. We get asked these ecommerce development questions a lot by Wisconsin e-commerce businesses:

  • Are you outsourcing ecommerce web development? At WebCitz, we don't outsource ecommerce website development services because we have our own team of Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers.
  • When the URLs change, do you create 301 redirects? While WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, sometimes it can't be done. We create 301 redirects for Waukesha ecommerce web designs that have different URL structures.
  • Do you create design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design project? For Waukesha 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 Waukesha ecommerce website design.
  • Do you help Waukesha business owners select the platform for their e-commerce website? WebCitz helps clients pick the right platform for their ecommerce websites. The answer is typically dependent upon the web design and ecommerce functionality requirements.
  • Can you tell me how fast Waukesha ecommerce development works? WebCitz usually gets Waukesha ecommerce web development projects done in 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complex e-commerce websites.
  • Your Waukesha ecommerce website developer should have a ecommerce portfolio or client reviews. Check out our ecommerce web design portfolio, ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Waukesha Ecommerce Websites

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

Multiple Discovery Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your Waukesha 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 Conversation

If you're happy with our ecommerce website development agency for your Waukesha website development, just sign the proposal, pay a down payment, and schedule your kickoff 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 Search

We'll start with mockups for your Waukesha 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 Waukesha ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Development

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

Website Launch (Plus Website Training!)

When the ecommerce website design 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 Waukesha e-commerce site! We can even share a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been optimizing our Wisconsin ecommerce development process for more than 18 years. We have incredible experience designing, developing, and launching successful e-commerce websites throughout United States!
