Ecommerce Website Setup

We'll help you start selling internationally and accepting payments for your products by setting up a new ecommerce website for your business. We have years of experience setting up new Shopify ecommerce websites for businesses and have crafted a process for designing, developing, testing, and training that we’ll apply to your business’ project.

We set up all new websites on Shopify, since it’s the most scalable ecommerce platform available.

Migrations to Shopify

We’ll help you migrate from your existing ecommerce platform to Shopify. Our developers will seamlessly handle the data migration of your existing products, customers, and order data. We’ll set up 301 redirects so links on your old website correctly redirect to your new website - this is especially important for maintaining your valuable search rankings on Google.

We support migrations from Magento, BigCommerce, WooCommerce, PrestaShop, Squarespace, and Wix to Shopify.

Shopify Website Redesigns

Are you looking to redesign your existing Shopify ecommerce website? We’ll conduct an audit of your current site and identify opportunities for improvement. Then, we’ll prioritize working on the opportunities with the highest impact. Our goal with every redesign is to increase your store’s conversion rate and average order value.

Redesign projects are among our favorite types of projects.

Website Support & Maintenance

We provide monthly support and maintenance services for existing Shopify ecommerce websites. We have different plans available to cater to your business’ support needs, varying in the hours of development support required each month. Our maintenance service includes support for design and development changes, bug fixes, troubleshooting, product setup, and app installation.

Ecommerce SEO

We’re a leading ecommerce SEO agency and can manage the planning, creation, promotion, and optizisation of your website’s content. Ecommerce SEO is an excellent investment for your brand’s website if you have the required budget and time.

Our Design Process

We have developed a tried-and-tested process for ecommerce website design. We make incremental improvements to our process after every project we complete.

Your team will leverage our years of experience in ecommerce web design by choosing us as your partner for your project.

1. Discovery Workshop

We start all ecommerce web design projects with a 1-2 hour discovery workshop with you and your team. Our discovery workshop aims to deep-dive into your business, competitors, your ecommerce goals, your customer persona, your best-selling products, and more.

Before every discovery workshop, we conduct extensive research into your business and your competitors - this includes analyzing your Google Analytics data, if you have an existing ecommerce website.

2. Design Prototyping

After conducting our discovery workshop, our team will meet internally to share ideas and decide on the best design and structure for your website. Our designers will create sitemaps, wireframes, and high-fidelity prototypes for mobile devices and desktops - we always design for mobile before desktop. We base our design decisions on what has and has not worked well for our clients most similar to you.

We’ll send you these design files for your review, and then we’ll have a call to finalize the design and layout of your new ecommerce website.

3. Theme Selection

Based on your budget, we may use an existing Shopify theme as the foundation for your ecommerce website’s design. Typically, we shortlist five themes (based on our design prototypes) and then collaborate with you to select the most suitable option. Each theme is scalable and optimized for conversions - this is evident by some Shopify Plus customers using themes, too - so you’ll have complete control over your brand’s customer experience.

For higher-budget projects, our ecommerce website design agency will design and develop a custom theme on Shopify for your store.

4. Backend Development

We’ll manage the setup of your Shopify website’s backend, including setting up all of your products, collections (categories), pages, legal policies, and blog posts.

We’ll also configure your shipping settings, tax settings, discounts, languages, markets, and marketing channels (Google, Facebook, TikTok, and more).

A lot goes on behind the scenes of an ecommerce website, and our experience helps correctly set up the backend.

5. Apps & Integrations Setup

We’ll set up any apps you require for your ecommerce website. We partner with industry leaders such as Yotpo, Gorgias, Klaviyo, ReCharge, and many others to create a fantastic experience for your customers.

For larger businesses, we can integrate your Shopify store into your EPS, IMG, and other 3PLs to streamline your back-office operations.

6. Frontend Design

We’ll implement our mobile-first design and layout in Shopify from our design prototypes. We want your new website to delight your customers so your website must align with your design expectations. We’ll have multiple rounds of revisions for you to provide feedback on our design in Shopify to get it just how you like it.

7. Testing

We’ll test your new ecommerce website on different mobile devices (mobile phones and tablets) and desktops in multiple browsers, including Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.

Testing popular small-screen devices is essential in ensuring that your customers’ experience of your website’s design is appropriate to the capabilities of the device they’re using.

8. Training

We’ll train you on how to use your new ecommerce website, use all of the apps on your store, and create new products. The goal of our training is for you and your team to become self-sufficient in using Shopify to manage orders, install apps, add new products, and more.

9. Launch

We’ll launch your site and be available for post-launch support (in case anything unexpected happens). Our ecommerce website design agency launches new sites on Mondays, so we’re available all week to help if anything goes wrong.

10. Ongoing Support & Optimization

We'll be available post-launch to help install apps, set up additional products, provide training, or troubleshoot and fix bugs.
