IT & eCommerce website support can become costly, and bad IT support can cost you more! The eCommerce website development team that supports your site is the lifeline of your operation. Hiring the right eCommerce experts to handle this responsibility can be a challenging task, and support you can rely on is a critical element you can’t afford to be without!
What is eCommerce Website Support?
eCommerce website support is any service that can be rendered in order to keep your website operating as smoothly as possible. Under this broad umbrella is a more extensive collection of different services ranging from design and development to API and app integration. For example, 1Digital® Agency offers support to help fix bugs and other issues that arise, either sporadically or in the wake of a development project. The very nature of a bug is that it can’t be predicted, and therefore it requires responsiveness and flexibility to address – that’s where we come in.
In addition to website debugging and addressing and fixing other website issues, we also provide graphic design and development services, app development, app integration, and API integration, responsive design and development, custom integration, theme upgrades, and custom coding support in order to keep your website running smoothly. We also offer eCommerce consulting services so that you can make your dream vision for your online store a reality.
Website issues can become costly to your business, which is why it pays ahead of time to work with experienced eCommerce website support specialists. If you need eCommerce website maintenance support services, contact a team member today.
How can eCommerce website support help you?
eCommerce website support can help you by ensuring that your eCommerce business continues to offer the functionality and the user experience that it was intended to offer. Improperly planned and executed integrations, mistakes in eCommerce custom development coding, faulty site migrations, and more are issues that can cause serious problems for your online store. These issues detract from your user experience or, worse, prevent your store from properly operating.
By partnering with an eCommerce development company like 1Digital®, you’ll receive access to an online CRM system where you’ll be able to submit tickets and track the progress of any site issues you might come across. These could be small bug fixes or more significant platform issues that require detailed and on-demand support. Here you will also have full access to other apps and team members that can help you grow our online business via digital marketing services, design services, and more, should you choose to fully invest in your eCommerce store.
We offer agile support agreements to meet your specific needs. Reach out to one of our eCommerce experts to learn more about how we can support your business today.

High Tech Battery Solutions
Maintaining Your Site’s Strengths During an eCommerce Platform Migration
There’s an idea in behavioral economics called the sunk cost fallacy. It posits that people naturally hold onto things longer than is strictly logical if they’ve invested a lot of time and energy into them in the past. Like your friend that won’t get rid of their old beater car because they’ve already replaced so many of the parts, even though it costs them a fortune every year at inspection time. I see this a lot when it comes to eCommerce platform migration. Merchants hang onto old systems long past when they know they should move onto something newer and better. After all, they’ve invested time and money into this store for years, how could they bear losing that work and starting over from square one?
Choosing a New Platform
High Tech Battery Solutions is a well-established retailer of specialty large-format batteries for items like motorcycles, electric wheelchairs, and defibrillators. At 1Digital® we’d been working with High Tech Battery Solutions, supporting their Volusion site, for a few years before they decided to move. Volusion was one of the first big players in the hosted eCommerce space, but over time they fell behind newer services.
Once we had decided on BigCommerce the next step was to see what could be done to make the platform even better. After all, the High Tech Battery team didn’t want to change platforms just to find they were running into the same limitations which had driven them off of Volusion. Whenever we begin a new custom site we always sit down with the merchant to discuss anything they might want that would be outside what their eCommerce system can provide out of the box.
Moving platforms is never simple. No matter who you are, your data will have little intricacies. Small incongruities between how it fits in the platform you’re on, and how it will need to fit in the platform you’re going to. When we plan out a data migration we try to anticipate and plan for as many of these edge cases as possible before the migration actually begins. When it comes to issues with data migration, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

eCommerce Website Development for BigCommerce Stores
Benefits of BigCommerce
BigCommerce, like Shopify, is an extremely robust eCommerce platform solution that is geared for online business. It offers a ton of out-of-the-box functionality, including the ability to sell through multiple channels, to accept a number of popular payment gateways, integrate with many popular BigCommerce 3rd party apps, and it offers powerful tools for managing pricing and inventory.
BigCommerce offers users a nearly limitless ability to customize the appearance and functionality of their online store. However, creating a truly custom store requires a lot of experience in design and development.
Because of that, stores built in BigCommerce can experience their share of issues that need a custom solution in order to work to their full capabilities. It’s complexity as a SaaS platform makes it prone to requiring complex solutions, but the team at 1Digital® Agency has both built and supported countless BigCommerce websites. If you are looking at a potential BigCommerce development project or want some more information on the types of support services that 1Digital® Agency can offer, get in touch with a representative from our team.
eCommerce Website Development for Shopify Stores
Benefits of Shopify
Many online merchants choose to build their businesses using Shopify’s SaaS solution for eCommerce. Whether you go with Shopify or Shopify Plus, their hosted solution provides a lot of powerful tools to conduct business online.
It is not only easy to launch a Shopify store, but it is also relatively simple to build a stunning, brand integrated visual layout. Shopify offers a secure and fast platform with amazing uptime, integrates with a variety of critical apps, and provides excellent customer service and support, making it a prime choice for online businesses.
However, the very features that make Shopify and Shopify Plus so capable also allow for a lot of room for error. The bigger the boat, the bigger the problem, and with software as complex as Shopify’s, it can be easy to miss a small issue that can turn into a big one.
That’s why we offer custom Shopify development services as well as support services to go along with them. Sometimes issues do not become evident until after the fact, at which point they have to be rectified, but our team has built enough custom eCommerce solutions to know just how to get the job done quickly and efficiently. If you’re looking for the best solution for Shopify development and support, you’re in the right place.

eCommerce Website Support FAQs
What is eCommerce website support?
Website support services and eCommerce website maintenance go hand-in-hand with eCommerce custom development projects. Because a project can entail any number of unforeseen roadblocks, support effectively encapsulates any services that can be rendered in order to ensure that a website development project is executed effectively and continues to offer the functionality desired down the road. In that way, eCommerce website support can cover website debugging, software updates, theme updates, managing and maintaining 3rd party apps and plugins, API development and integration, custom coding, graphic design, and more.

We know each project is different and each website has its own needs and we’re here to help support those needs, big or small.
What eCommerce website maintenance will my website, or project, require?
Every website is different, as is every design or development project, so it’s not really possible to know exactly what support or maintenance your website will need beforehand.

To learn a little more about the types of support that are typically required with a given project, contact our team for more details.

We also service sites that are built on other platforms such as Swift4Shop and WordPress. In addition to providing support associated with these platforms, 1Digital® Agency provides a number of design and development services associated with these specific platforms, such as headless development and integration of BigCommerce 3rd party apps.
What kinds of tools do you use when providing ongoing eCommerce website support?
Keeping up with your website and making sure it is up-to-date can be a difficult task. Luckily, our team is always there to give you the support you need. One way we provide eCommerce website support is by granting our clients access to our CRM workspace, Podio. If there is a bug that needs fixing or code that needs updating, you can simply reach out to anyone on our team via Podio or, if you have a retainer, simply create a ticket and we’ll get to work.
What if I want a new theme later down the road, are theme upgrades a part of website support?
Upgrading your existing theme may be an essential step in making sure your website continues to be responsive. For any eCommerce business, it’s important to have an updated and well-designed theme in order to keep users on your site and coming back for more. Our eCommerce experts can not only help you implement a new theme, but we can also assist in any custom design and development so that you can maximize the capabilities of your theme for the best results.
What kind of eCommerce consulting services does 1Digital® Agency provide?
