Article Summary

Step 1: Choose a New Template and a Web Designer

Look at our Website Templates and decide which option would be best for your new Website. If you'd like to build your new site from scratch, select the "Designer Launch" option *Please note that some templates do not have open CSS.

You'll also want to select one of our Certified Design Partners to assist in bringing your new design to life within your existing Admin Panel.

Step 2: Submit Redesign Request Form

Once submitted, the WineDirect Team will create a fresh Admin Panel instance for you to serve as your development environment. This is where all the design work will be executed for your new Website. You can access the form below.

Step 3: Customize a new website design in your Development Environment

After the Project Management team has confirmed that your development environment is ready, you'll want to contact the Designer of your choice to move forward with the styling/designing the new Website. You or your Designer will customize the new template in your development environment. You'll load your content and photos to the development environment, but you will not need to migrate any products, orders, contacts, etc. 

Step 4: Port new design to existing Admin Panel

Once your new Website is ready, a Certified Designer will need to assist in porting the new design from the development environment to your existing Admin Panel.

Your redesign is complete!

Enjoy the fresh look and feel of your new Website.

Redesign FAQs 

Do I need to use one of the Certified Design Partners listed above?
Yes, you must use one of the Certified Design Partners to help you port your redesign from your development environment to your existing Admin Panel. They do not necessarily need to do the design work if you have your design team, but they will need to make themselves available to help port the design into the live environment. If you have internal designers that can do most of the work, the Certified Design Partner is still valuable as they have ported many redesigns in WineDirect.

Do I get a WineDirect Ecommerce Project Manager?
No. WineDirect Ecommerce no longer handles redesigns in-house; Certified Design Partners handle them. Your chosen Design Partner will work with you throughout the entire redesign process - as much as you need or as little as you want. 

Do I have to pay for a redesign?
There is no fee to set up a redesign instance within WineDirect. Certified Design Partners charge management, design, porting, and consultation fees. We encourage you to speak with them about your specific needs before selecting. 

Do I need a designer to redesign my Website?
If you don't wish to customize the new template you've chosen, you can build your redesigned Website through our Content Editor tools. If you'd like to customize your chosen template, ask your Certified Design Partner to add design work and port your redesign. Additional design work will incur an extra fee. 

Do I have to use a template?
You can use one of our website templates or select Designer Launch, which would be like building your new Website from scratch. If you should decide to use Designer Launch, you will need to obtain the assistance of a Certified Designer to build this for you.
