We get questions all the time from prospective clients looking for eCommerce solutions and have listed a few of the more important things to consider when choosing a company to built your eCommerce site.
Important factors to consider when choosing an eCommerce web designer
eCommerce calls for an intimate understanding of your products and services in order to structure a successful online storefront. When looking for an eCommerce web developer, one crucial factor to consider is if they have physical offices. Ensure the developer has an established location where you can reach them to show your physical products and discuss. This will help in the design and overall conceptualization of how a customer should interact with your website and what products to feature including what to upsell and when. Of course, it is also reassuring to know that if for any reason, you need to reach your design or development team, you can find them in Toronto.
Thinkbound’s offices are located right in uptown Toronto. Conveniently accessible from the 401 and Don Valley Parkway, Thinkbound’s offices are located at 40 Wynford Drive. Free parking is always available
Setting up an online store for customers to find your products and build their trust to transact through your platform can be incredibly exciting but also overwhelming when considering all the moving parts needed to influence a visitor to pass through each touch point and become a faithful customer. Through every step of order fulfillment, there are not only strategies but important partnerships needed with third party vendors to ensure successful strategic implementation. Thinkbound provides in-depth recommendations on how to structure your business, setup merchant accounts with your banks and payment gateways with negotiated rates for accepting credit cards (such as Visa and MasterCard). We walk you through the entire process to get up and running smoothly so orders can start rolling in. If ther are tradeshows coming, Thinkbound provides cost effective promotional material, exhibit design and production and much more!
The long term success of your eCommerce endeavour depends on the technology of choice when setting up your eCommerce platform. It’s common for web developers to state they can build eCommerce stores using different technologies, some that are open-source and others that are paid subscription. Such eCommerce platforms can include WordPress, Magento, and Shopify or perhaps they will suggest using a proprietary eCommerce framework that was developed by the eCommerce agency.
Take time to weigh the differences but more importantly, seek out a developer that specializes is a particular platform versus having experience across many. At Thinkbound, we make recommendation based on a list of criteria that includes:
- Stage of business (just starting vs. established)
- The level of product relationship complexity (product composites, groupings, customizations)
- Number of products (hundreds versus thousands)
- Client technical savvy-ness (who will be maintaining the site)
- Industry and eCommerce type (B2B vs B2C)
We’ll explain the inner workings of how your project will take shape based on our recommended approach and how to smoothly scale up when business starts growing.
It’s important that the contractor or web design agency you hire has experience with managing large scale eCommerce sites where extended knowledge of website security and site performance is required. As an eCommerce platform grows and becomes more complex in handling customer orders and expectations, so does resource usage and hosting requirements. Thinkbound has experience in accelerating content delivery site performance and overall data processing both on the software and hardware level.
Before website work begins, it is important to make sure there is a clear understanding on what access will be provided once the website is complete. Some web developers use their own proprietary management systems to maintain their client websites that may present challenges in providing certain access to source code. Additionally, the hosting architecture may present challenges in allowing access. On the other hand, there are open-source platforms that may be leveraged that allows the end-client to have full access to their source code and freedom to manage or migrate website to other host providers.
This is an important topic to discuss to ensure you have access to all your site files. At Thinkbound, we focus on open-source eCommerce development and want your website to be truly yours. We provide full FTP and hosting control panel access to your hosting account and domains. We also assist in migrating your website to another server or onto our high performing eCommerce hosting and security platform.
