Ecommerce websites can be designed using several platforms with each having their own merits and limitations. We can explain what would work best for your business, products, budget and design it from the ground up with marketing and SEO built right into it.
We provide full-service ecommerce websites that can serve as a catalog for a business, both informational as well as processing online payments quickly and easily and automatically. We can develop ecommerce websites in all of the popular platforms such as WooCommerce, BigCommerce, Shopify, Ultracart and more. If you are unsure of which platform is best for you then you can read our article on choosing an eCommerce platform so you can determine which is best for your needs and budget.
We also develop these online businesses from the ground up with SEO in mind, so that your ecommerce website actually has the proper foundation in which to help it build organic traffic through the search engines. There’s no point in having an ecommerce website if nobody knows can find it.
We have been developing ecommerce websites since 2003 so we have a huge amount of expertise as well as partnerships with some of the important ecommerce platforms.
There are a number of platforms you can choose to build your website in. The most popular is Woocommerce which is an ECommerce plugin for WordPress. Regardless of the platform you choose we will ensure that your eCommerce design adheres to these core principles which will ensure it’s user-friendly, SEO-friendly and mobile-friendly.
No matter which eCommerce platform you choose we will build a beautiful custom template that represents your business well that is also mobile-friendly and easy to navigate. We will also let you know of restrictions and limitations of your chosen platform as sometimes they can be more rigid to design in depending on their code and requirements.
A common problem is organizing your online store. You need the perfect number of categories and sub-categories so that visitors are frustrated trying to drill down to what they want but also not so shallow that they have to sort through pages of products to find what they want. This is key in making sure your site is both user and mobile friendly but also search engine friendly so category and sub-category pages are robust enough to rank. We will help ensure you have the perfect structure to satisfy all needs.
The proper setup for taxes, checkout and shipping are crucial to eCommerce functionality. We will set up your tax structure, merchant provider and/or other payment methods such as Pay Pal as well as your desired shipping methods whether it be custom rates or live rates.
This is the biggest hurdle for any eCommerce design. If you have an existing eCommerce website this can make the process a lot easier as some platforms have import tools and others can import via CSV or spreadsheet. We can help to facilitate these product moves and ensure they are added to the correct category structure. If you are building a new eCommerce store and don’t have products in an import fashion then we can provide this service manually but depending on the number of products this may have an additional fee, or we can walk you through how to manually add a product so you can complete this on your own. Either way we will make sure your products are available on the site in the way you want them to. Which can include options that increase the price and other such variables.
Once the site is complete and ready to go live it’s crucial to test all the possible checkout options to ensure they are correctly set up and working. This would include testing orders from mulitple provinces or states to ensure correct taxes and shipping costs but also international or multi-currency orders and orders of multiple products and quantities.
Once launched there are some crucial steps that need to be completed. If you are changing eCommerce platforms URLs likely change as each platform builds it URL differently so old URLs are lost and new ones need to be indexed so it’s important for crucial pages to have 301 redirects and for the whole new website to be submitted to Google for indexing to help speed up the indexing of the new pages.
