Shopify is limiting my growth!

Many of the eCommerce website design requests we get are from business owners frustrated with the limitations of platforms like Shopify that are cheap and easy to start with, but limit their long-term growth.

Best Platform

Which platform is best?

There is no one-size-fits all approach here. Platforms like Shopify are great for startups or budget-conscious businesses, while WooCommerce provides the complete flexibility to build the custom store you want.

Missed Opportunities

Missed opportunities.

Without a knowledgeable eCommerce website designer, you’re likely leaving sales opportunities on the table. Chat with our e-commerce experts to build a strategy that is sure to maximize your investment.

Triangle Copy

We build fully customized eCommerce websites without limitations.

Our approach to building eCommerce websites is based on your marketing goals and planning for the future to ensure long-term flexibility and success.

Data-driven Design

Fully customized design.

Each and every website we design and build starts from a blank slate. User experience, features, functionality and administration features are all designed to your unique specifications – no templates, ever!

Sky is the limit

The sky is the limit.

Unlike closed systems like Shopify we don’t “add on” features to your online store. We plan and build the website to do exactly what you want it to do without the need to add on extra features.

No fees

No recurring fees.

The great thing about open-source eCommerce solutions like WordPress and WooCommerce is that there are no licensing or usage fees. After your initial investment in a custom web store, that’s it!

“Parachute helped identify our unique brand personality instead of presenting general solutions. Unlike other firms we’ve worked with, they actively collaborate and even challenge our ideas if they feel it means creating a better end product. I would highly recommend Parachute to anyone serious about success!”

e-Commerce website design requires creativity and technical experience.

01Project Planning

Most people don’t have the experience and understanding of online sales to scope out a new eCommerce website. The first phase in working with our e-commerce experts focuses solely on mapping out the unique online shopping experience you want to provide your customers through your retail website.

We then discuss administration and promotional features you will need to use to market your products and services through the new website as well as plan for features that you may want to use as your business grows.

If we honestly think Shopify instead of WooCommerce would be a better fit for your business we’ll tell you – even though we don’t offer Shopify website development services.

02Discovery and Research

Much like any other website project, once we have our scope of work ironed out we begin our website design process by learning all about your company, products or services and your brand. We do a thorough competitor analysis to identify the competition and understand what they’re doing well and what we can do better.

We also review your current website analytics to understand how users are currently finding your website, what they’re most interested in there and what challenges or frustrations they may be facing in order to create a frictionless checkout experience on the new website.

03Strategy and UX Design

Based on our findings during the discovery phase, we design a brand new site map to carefully plan out the page architecture, link structure and navigation design for the new website.

We also dive into UX design with a complete set of wireframes to help map out the user journey, conversion strategy and information architecture of every unique type of page that will exist in the new e-commerce website design.

04Responsive Web Design

With our strategy complete, our expert e-commerce web designers get to work creating the initial web design concepts for the new website. These high-fidelity mockups are shared with you as interactive prototypes to allow you to make the most educated decisions about the design and direction of your new website.

We look at both the desktop and mobile environments in detail before the first line of code is written to bring the new e-commerce web design to life.

05eCommerce Website Development

Once we’ve finalized the new website design our experienced website development team takes over and begins turning the beautiful new design concepts into pristine code to ensure the new website is highly optimized for search and performance.

Developing custom eCommerce websites powered by WooCommerce is our specialty. We love the power of WordPress because it’s fast and incredibly easy to use while offering complete flexibility for our developers to build a truly unique experience for you and your customers. Not to mention, WooCommerce is one of the most trusted eCommerce platforms.

06Quality Assurance and Support

Before and after launch we put the new website through a rigorous quality assurance test to ensure everything looks and operates perfectly. Following the launch of your new website we hand over the keys, but not to worry. We’re in this for the long haul!

eCommerce websites require support and maintenance to stay current, secure and up-to-date and we’re at your service each month to make sure everything is running on all cylinders.
