get started

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.

eCommerce Website Development


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.

Checkout Process

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.

Platform & Data Migration

Learning that the limitations of your current eCommerce platform? Perhaps you’re working with a proprietary system whose constraints have fenced you in for too long, and you want the unleash your full potential?

Mobile apps allow you to take your customer relationship even further. We build easy to use apps that break down barriers between your store and it’s best customers.

API Development & Integration

eCommerce Website Development for Shopify Stores

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!

eCommerce Website Development for BigCommerce Stores

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.

Resonate Gifts: A Custom Development Case Study

Resonate Gifts is not a typical eCommerce store. They sell gift packages, meant to be sent out over a period of weeks and months. So naturally, Logan needed a lot of changes to the out of the box BigCommerce functionality. Our developers were able to build a complex step by step process that allows Resonate Gifts customers to create and customize their gift packages, all within fields that Logan can manage in the BigCommerce admin area.
