E-commerce Website Design and Development
We build beautiful online stores that make e-commerce simple
Online sales accounted for more than 10% of all retail sales worldwide in 2017, and this number is projected to reach more than 17% by 2021. Headlines everywhere speak of niche e-commerce stores driving brick-and-mortar stores out of business.
And it’s not just small mom-and-pop shops. More and more big retail chains are closing stores because they can’t compete with their online alternatives.

WooCommerce is the perfect e-commerce solution if you already have an existing website powered by WordPress. As long time WooCommerce web developers, we love this flexible plugin for a lot of reasons:
- Works with the most popular WordPress themes
- Largest market share of any e-commerce solution
- Allows you to embed products anywhere on your website, even blog posts
- Seamless customer rating integration
Shopify is one of the largest contenders in the e-commerce web design solutions. It is truly an all-in-one online retail solution because it serves as its own website platform. You don’t need an existing website to build your store on Shopify.
- No WordPress website required
- User-friendly interface for adding products and managing orders
- Hundreds of app integrations to customize your store
- Mobile responsive themes
At PWD, we don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. That’s why we can’t recommend one platform over the other.
What we can say is that we have designed and developed plenty of e-commerce stores in both WooCommerce and Shopify. So, once we have a clear understanding of your needs in an online store, we can make a recommendation that will make things easiest for you and your customers.
Conversion Focused E-Commerce Web Design
Getting customers to your website is just half the battle, and a beautiful online store means nothing if it doesn’t land you sales. That’s why we develop e-commerce websites that don’t just look great but also do the job they are meant to do: increase your profits.
- Clear calls-to-action that direct the user experience
- Email opt-ins to build your subscriber list
- Social media integration for expanded audience reach
- Coupon codes for increased conversions
- Banners and sliders to highlight sales and featured products
WooCommerce is easily one of the most versatile platforms as it provides the flexibility to transform any WordPress site into an online store.

But with the tools available from WooCommerce and with our web development services, you’ll have an online store that drives more product sales for your business.

Online users expect a smooth ordering process. Here is how WooCommerce makes it effortless for your shoppers to complete a purchase:
Drag-and-drop website builders like Weebly and Wix have seemingly made web design effortless, but are they really a replacement for a full service e-commerce web development company?
Solutions like these might work for the simplest of websites, but here are just a few of the things that the PWD team has to offer that you won’t find in a home brewed site.
An E-commerce Site as Unique as Your Brand
If you use a cookie cutter website builder, you get a cookie cutter website. Our e-commerce web design and development process starts by listening to your needs. What’s your brand story? What’s the image you want your online store to project? By asking questions like these, we design a professional website that is unique to your company and functions seamlessly for every user.
Custom Web Application Development
Create a user experience like no other by integrating a truly unique web application on your new e-commerce store — something you can’t do with a drag-and-drop builder. Creative, innovative ways to engage your audience are the special touches that will set your website apart from the competition.
Ongoing Website Maintenance
The launch of a new online store is just the beginning of your e-commerce journey. Keeping plugins, themes, and other features updated is not only critical to the user experience, but also to website security.
PWD offers ongoing maintenance and support for your e-commerce site so that you don’t have to lose sleep over what’s going on in the back end.
