About Ecwid

Ecwid is an ecommerce tool for freelancers and small businesses who want to set up a quick and fully functionable online store in minimal time. The web-based software easily integrates with existing websites and blogs such as Wordpress, Drupal and Joomla, and also enables users to create a Instagram or Facebook store within minutes.

Upgrades, SSL-certificates, security and server configuration is all taken care of by Ecwid so business owners don’t need to worry about the technological side of owning and managing an online store. Users can easily personalize their storefront designs by changing colors, fonts, margins and images to match the look of their website.

In the online store, products can be categorized based on features including sizes and colors.
Product quantity is automatically updated when an item has been purchased and store owners will get automatic email notifications when an item is low or out of stock.

Ecwid also enables users to sell e-goods like software, audio and video files (mp3s), e-books and graphics by sending a download link to the customer after an order takes place.

Ecwid is fully optimized for iPhone, iPad and Android for quick and easy access to the store’s inventory. The cloud-based software integrates with various POS (point of sale) services such as PayPal and 2Checkout, which makes transactions by debit or credit fast and simple.

My overall experience has been amazing I'm under the venture plan which is $17 a month and you can basically compare the venture plan to Shopify basic plan which is $29 a month.

Pros

What I like most about the software is it's very easy to use whether you're doing it based from your browser or from the app. Very simple and easy website design and setup.

Cons

The thing that I like least about the software is that they actually don't have their own payment processor versus Shopify. But it gives you the option to use square, stripe,2checkout&More.

I've been using Everyone shopping cart for almost 4 years and I'm satisfied with the service. I've tried other companies and always revert back to Ecwid. It provides all the necessary told and features for a website or online retail store.

Pros

Easy to create new products for online store. Easy to setup store and affordable price.

Cons

I'm not particularly happy with the design options and usable templates.

We are implementing it for several clients that need a functional ecommerce site with zero to minimal maintenance or with a do it yourself type of philosophy. Not much to say about it.

Pros

Ecwid is a robust platform for the newcomer with pretty much everything streamlined to get your website up and running in no time.

Cons

Ecwid might make you have a website up and running in no time but that means it is going to look like a template available to anybody, so you might end up having a copycat website somewhere. For seasoned developers/designers this is not your platform.

ECWID makes ecommerce a lot easier than normal which is great for smaller businesses and boutique shops. It allows for a cost effective alternative to the more expensive companies out there.

Pros

This software is easy to teach and can be used on any device. When showing my clients of multiple ages how to add new products and keep inventory they catch on easy. You can integrate your store on different platforms like Adobe Muse, Wix, Wordpress etc. Or create your own generic store using their store builder. There are more options for product variations than most other programs out there.

Cons

Unfortunately customizing your store look is very complicated. You need to have some level of coding to do so or you have to hire a designer to do it for you. The main downside is it doesnt work well if you want to use it or a restaurant. Food options, layout, mixed with customizability does cause an issue in the food industry.

Overall my experience with Ecwid has been a favorable one. The software has allowed me to integrate the platform into Wordpress themes and social media pages, giving me a well rounded solution for my e-commerce needs.

Pros

What I liked most about this software is that it’s perfect for those wanting to setup an online shop but are limited with their budget or currently don’t have the necessary funds to support a month to month plan offered by many other e-commerce solutions.

Cons

What I liked least about this software is the lack of video tutorials and training available to consumers as compared to other major e-commerce platforms.
