eCommerce Web Development Custom Website DevelopmentMORE
From simple eCommerce web development like homepage popups that encourage account creation to robust integration with your CRM, our team of expert web developers can design and develop any tool you need. We specialize in the mid-market enterprise space and work with a number of top platforms like Shopify Plus, BigCommerce Enterprise, Magento, Volusion, WooCommerce, and 3dcart custom eCommerce web development, but are familiar with other platforms as well.
What is Custom eCommerce Development?
Custom eCommerce development entails any work that needs to be done on the layout of your website and any internal pages. It could be relatively simple work to ensure fast loading speed, correct product and image displays, an operable interface for high-quality user experience, homepage popups, and more. It also entails all of the work that can be done on the functionality of your website, including app development, responsive design and development, ADA compliance, API development and integration and much more. In short, if work has to be done on your website to improve interface, enhance user experience, or ensure proper functionality of all the components of your website and platform, it probably falls under custom eCommerce development.
How Can Custom eCommerce Development Help You?
Many online stores work around the constraints of platforms that do not offer all of the functionality they might want. Even robust, capable platforms like BigCommerce, Shopify, and Magento offer the ability for developers to customize them extensively, however, doing so requires a great deal of skill and experience.
That’s where working with eCommerce web developers that have a history of success becomes so important. If your eCommerce website is working around the restraints of a platform that just can’t offer you what you need, then a team of eCommerce web developers like ours at 1Digital can not only help uncover that but can also help you identify a platform that will work for your needs. We can even help you plan and execute a successful migration to a new custom-developed eCommerce platform.
It rarely ends with migration, or replatforming, since every eCommerce website is different from the next and has special needs and functionality it should promise to offer. For these reasons, eCommerce web development can be crucial to ensuring that a given platform accepts and integrates with the third-party apps you need to offer a quality shopping experience. At the same time, developers will ensure that your website is fast with proper display and functionality across a range of devices.

Powering your eCommerce Website
Our web designers and front-end developers work together to deliver a site that not only looks good but performs great. Together we can create a custom eCommerce website designed and developed to be complete with a variety of web applications to offer your users a better online shopping experience. From landing page development straight through to the shopping cart and checkout process, our developers will create a seamless funnel to boost engagement and conversion rates with custom web development services for your eCommerce site.
Navigation and Search Functionality
Easy navigation has a huge impact on user experience and can have a profound effect on conversions. Customers that come to your website need to be able to find the products they are searching for. For most online businesses, this means offering a logical, simple navigational hierarchy that offers elements of a click-through menu as well as search functionality.
Responsive Web Design
As more and more users shop via mobile channels, responsive eCommerce web design becomes significantly more important. Some websites that are very well designed for their desktop displays do not scale well to smaller screens like tablets and screens. This results in significant bounce rate increases when the interface of a mobile website is confusing, cluttered or overwhelming.
App Development and Integration
Many online businesses rely heavily on third-party apps to provide search, payment gateways and checkout, customer reviews, live chat functionality, streamlined shipping, and much more. Other eCommerce businesses rely on custom-developed apps to provide necessary functionality to their customers. Whether you simply need to ensure an app integrates seamlessly with your platform’s design or you need a truly custom developed app, you need custom eCommerce development.
A painless, simplified checkout process is one of the most important elements of user experience, nearly irrespective of what industry your eCommerce business serves. Some best practices to optimize the checkout process are including buttons for “Add to Cart” or “1-Step Checkout” processes, although this can vary by what your customers value. Regardless, it is imperative to offer a simple checkout process that is as intuitive as possible, whether you lean on a third-party app or need a true custom developed solution.

Benefits of Shopify
Shopify is a robust eCommerce platform trusted by many eCommerce businesses in different industries around the world. It is well known for its robust security features, fast loading speed and high uptime, great customer service, excellent support, and more. At the same time, Shopify has been designed to make it relatively easy for developers to create a responsive design as well as accepting and integrating with many different third-party apps; Shopify also offers a lot of tools to enable online merchants to create a visually stunning, brand integrated online store.
However, creating the ideal Shopify store can be much more involved and, oftentimes, can require a large degree of familiarity with the platform. Shopify developers with a lot of experience can streamline a Shopify development project to create a Shopify store that is visually appealing and offers the custom functionality and design necessary to satisfy your customers. If you need development work on your Shopify store, our Shopify experts can help!

Benefits of BigCommerce
Like Shopify, BigCommerce is built for eCommerce and has tons of powerful tools that are geared for selling online. It allows for comprehensive account management, customer management and inventory management, and integrates seamlessly with many critical third-party apps that will elevate your user experience and make for a stellar online store.
However, your business might need BigCommerce development to create the ideal mobile-friendly design, integrate custom-developed apps or to set up the ability to sell through numerous channels, which BigCommerce is geared to do. Additionally, wherever you need some custom functionality that will take a lot of experience and know-how to pull off, you may need to work with a BigCommerce developer. The platform makes it possible, but it still requires a large degree of technical expertise to execute. If you want to learn more about BigCommerce development and how we can help, contact our team.

1DBox Dev Tool Kit
If you think you’re out of options, that the customization you want just can’t be done, you owe it to your business to give us a call. Our eCommerce developers built this tool, and they can shape it in almost any way they need to. We created 1DBox to provide eCommerce merchants on SAAS platforms with an option to stay in the platform they love and still do the work they need to. Tell us about what you need to accomplish and 1DBox will take care of the rest.
Although custom eCommerce development covers some commonly addressed projects like API integration and responsive design development, there is much more that can go into it. Because all eCommerce sites are different, the apps required or the functionality needed could be very different from others in the same field. That’s why 1Digital offers advanced development for these types of projects, and to enhance our advanced development processes we created our 1DBOX.
1DBOX is a solution to getting around some of the constraints presented by many out-of-the-box customizations. To keep things simple, the interfaces of some platforms, like Shopify and BigCommerce, make some alterations to functionality possible. Other custom functionality elements, however, are harder to develop. 1DBOX presents our partners a solution to develop that custom functionality that otherwise would be very difficult to create.
1DBOX can offer these custom eCommerce solutions because it is connected to your online store without being hosted on the platform. Rather, it is hosted on a third-party server and synched with your eCommerce store via API. This enables you to work from the backend of your platform to make customizations to your online store; wherever you run into difficulty, you can use 1DBOX, which presents you with its own admin panel whereby you can make the desired changes to your eCommerce store, despite the boundaries presented by the platform itself.

eCommerce Web Development FAQs
What is eCommerce web development and why is it important?
eCommerce web development is the process of creating a website that is optimized for user experience and provides a user interface that is convenient, easy to use, and adds value to that experience. Think of design as the collection of visual elements and development as the behind the scenes work that makes everything work together seamlessly.
How can eCommerce website development help my online business?
Without eCommerce website development, your site may look beautiful but not work cohesively. Development ensures that the elements of your website design display where they should and when they should. It ensures that your business-critical apps function properly and effectively, and it ensures that your overall user experience is enjoyable and seamless.
What are the most important elements of eCommerce web development?
It’s hard to point to one single element as the most important aspect of eCommerce web development, as they all work together. Additionally, since all eCommerce websites are different, one website may have a more pressing need for responsive development than another. It’s a case by case basis, but some of the most important elements of development across the board are app development and integration, responsive development for mobile shoppers along with development of site navigation, payment gateways, and checkout processes.
What information do I need to provide before my eCommerce web development project begins?
Having a general knowledge and understanding as to what website developed work you need done is important. Whether that’s inventory management or secure payment gateways, custom search functionality, or enhancing customer accounts, our experts can help you with all your eCommerce site development needs. We’ll work with you to carry out the essential end goal: improve your website’s overall functionality to provide a better shopping experience for your customers.
Will my eCommerce platform impact my site’s potential development features?
Every eCommerce platform provides business owners with its own suite of functionality. Coding might vary depending on the platform being used, but the biggest influence that your platform will have is determining what features will require custom eCommerce development. Our development team has helped businesses from all major eCommerce platforms, such as Shopify and BigCommerce, develop custom features for their websites.
What happens if I want to change my platform at a later date?
Our team can assist you with a full-scale website migration as needed, and the option is always available to you. With 1Digital®, your eCommerce store is never tied down to one specific platform, although many features of your site may be platform-specific based on your level of custom development and the apps you are using. Get in touch with us for more details.
What eCommerce web development services does 1Digital® offer?
1Digital® Agency offers a host of eCommerce web development services that will result in an efficient and effective online store for your business. Among our many web development services are response development, platform and data migrations services and support, app development, API development and integration, and more. For advanced development projects, we created our own tool, 1DBOX, which gives us and our clients additional functionality to overcome any of the restraints which their current platform presents. 1DBOX enables us to provide custom solutions to our clients that are outside of their current platform’s capabilities.
Does 1Digital® offer app development services?
Yes, 1Digital® Agency offers not only app and API integration services but app development services as well. We’ve even created custom apps for clients in the past who needed a solution to work around the constraints of the platform they were using. If you have a vision for your online business and its processes but need the help of experts to make it a reality, contact our team to learn more about how our app development services can benefit your business.
How long will my project with 1Digital® Agency take?
It can be difficult to quantify such a question, as every development project will be unique in its scope. Some projects will take longer than others, but 1Digital® Agency prides itself on the consistency and thoroughness of the work we do for our clients. To get a more specific answer on a development project you would like to see scoped and completed for your business, contact our team.
Will I be able to talk one-on-one with an eCommerce website developer to get the desired results?
At 1Digital®, we take a personal approach to business with our clients. Whether you partner with us for a development project or a digital marketing campaign, our team will be accessible to you from the beginning of the project through the end, and through any extended support. All of our clients all have access to our CRM system where they can track the progress of the project and communicate with their dedicated project manager along the way.
Does 1Digital® offer support after projects are completed or delivered?
Yes, 1Digital® Agency offers digital support services once projects are completed and delivered. Typically, we offer 30 days of free support after the completion or delivery of a project, but some projects receive 15, 30, 45, or even 60 days of support. This will vary by the nature and complexity of the project, but our support services are always available and, once a project has been completed, your project workspace within our CRM will always be available for you to easily reach out. We even offer support services for businesses that don’t need any full design or development work, but instead just need some eCommerce support.
Will eCommerce web development impact my SEO?
1Digital® Agency does everything with SEO in mind, including design and development. Design and development projects can have a big impact on SEO, but as experts who dedicate a large portion of resources to the execution of successful SEO campaigns, we know the best practices to implement and follow during design and development to prevent adverse effects to your SEO.
Do I need to be local to work with 1DA for this project?
You do not need to be local to work with 1Digital® for your eCommerce web development project. We have worked with clients from all over the world and across a wide variety of industries by assisting in developing effective and responsive eCommerce websites for their businesses. We are an eCommerce development company that is here to help all eCommerce businesses with their web development needs.
Can 1Digital® work around my website’s existing custom features?
If you already have custom-built features on your website, our team can work around them or even help you improve them. We’ve helped clients with advanced product building features migrate those applications and help them match custom design features for an overall better website and shopping experience.
Can 1Digital® help me develop advanced search functions?
Advanced search is a custom development option that many of our customers request. Businesses with very specific products need to give customers the ability to filter based on several factors. This need usually exceeds the search functions that most platforms offer. We can help you make whatever specialized search features you need and help you implement them on your site.
Will my website experience any downtime?
Depending on the nature of your development project, you can expect an appropriate amount of downtime. We take stringent measures during every project to ensure minimal interruption to key services, and all measures are taken to properly inform your visitors of what to expect and how to get in touch with you while the site is under maintenance.
Can 1Digital® help make my store more responsive?
Mobile responsiveness is an important part of both user experience and SEO, so our team takes important steps to ensure that all of our eCommerce development projects are optimized for mobile viewing and functionality. You can be sure that your website is outfitted with the latest design conventions that both your users and search engines are looking for.
