What is Custom eCommerce Design?
A custom eCommerce design is a proprietary website design that has been created with the specific needs of an online business in mind and can account for the entire layout of an online store, including the product pages, category pages, homepage, navigational hierarchy, checkout processes, and more. Website design encompasses all visual aspects of your website and can affect brand cohesion, conversion rate optimization, bounce rate and much more, deeply affecting the user experience of your eCommerce website.
A custom eCommerce design can be as simple as a redesign of a mega menu for more simplified navigation to assist customers in finding the products they need, or as involved as a total overhaul of your website’s current design. Custom design can also bring together a set of curated stock images and transform them into a unified brand persona. Sometimes it helps to take a step back from your web design and let a team of professionals assess your current design to give you some insight on your current design and provide opportunities for improvements. Consult with our team of website designers on some of our services or start with an Online Store Brand Appraisal to get a qualitative and quantitative evaluation
of how well your current design is brand-integrated.
How Can a Custom Website Design Help You?
A custom website design can help your website align better with your brand, connect more closely with your target customers, and offer a more enjoyable shopping experience. Customers don’t want to visit your website and be left scratching their heads about what services you offer or what products you sell. They want value delivered; a custom eCommerce website design can direct customers to the valuable content on your site, capitalize on opportunities for cross-selling and upselling, advertise best selling categories or products, streamline navigation, and provide for a seamless, painless checkout experience that will have customers coming back time and time again.

eCommerce Website Design for BigCommerce Stores — Benefits of BigCommerce
BigCommerce is one of the best platforms available for eCommerce merchants looking for a hosted solution. A Software as a Service (SaaS) platform, it provides for nearly unlimited uptime, is highly scalable, very secure, makes it easy to accept a number of different payments and is highly customizable. A BigCommerce website design can be more than engaging and visually stunning. It brings with it the added benefits of functionality and scalability listed above.
With the right team of BigCommerce designers and developers, there is almost no limit to what you can accomplish with BigCommerce’s features. It offers an extremely diverse collection of themes while at the same time allowing for designers to edit existing themes to create your ideal image and interface for an online store. This flexibility allows for merchants to design stores that are fully brand integrated and visually stunning.
In addition to the benefits mentioned above, BigCommerce also offers an open API that makes the platform compatible with a large number of popular third-party apps, including but not limited to ShipperHQ, Smile.io, Yotpo, Quickbooks and many, many more. Where an app will improve your customer’s shopping experience, BigCommerce’s open API makes integration readily practical. In fact, even if you partner with us to develop a custom application for your eCommerce website design, their open API can make integration much easier than it would be elsewhere.
eCommerce Website Design for Shopify Stores — Benefits of Shopify
Shopify and Shopify Plus are both eCommerce-focused platforms, but Shopify Plus contains more robust tools for larger, enterprise level operations. Shopify Plus offers a number of B2B functionalities over Shopify’s basic plan, providing pricing set in accordance with the customer account, the ability to offer bulk discounts, different shipping rules and more. Shopify Plus also presents lower transaction costs which can be a bonus for larger operations conducting many thousands of transactions per day or even per week, which can rack up over time.
Shopify Plus also enables businesses to easily automate more processes, saving time and money. Large scale operations cannot afford to spend the time manually conducting processes that can be automated. The ability to automate processes such as pricing, tax rate and discount calculations can be a serious bonus for larger clients that utilize Shopify Plus.
Still, there is a lot to consider when evaluating the cost and the potential return on the investment that you can expect with Shopify Plus over Shopify. That’s where the experts in the industry come into play. We’ve built many stores on both Shopify and Shopify Plus and we know the questions to ask and the cues to look for to help you make the decision. Call our Shopify website design experts today and we’ll consult with you to help you determine which plan is best for you and your business.
