Pros
How many times have you used a software that has this. Even for international use it is amazing, plus it syncs with the best apps and plugins out there.

IM

Ivan M.

Ecwid was recommended to me by a friend and it was the best decision I ever made in terms of an eCommerce solution.

Christopher H.

What I like most about this software is the ease of use.

AS

Ashley S.

Cons
Additionally, sometimes the CSR you get via online chat (which IS convenient, I must say) doesn't have a legitimate knowledge of all aspects of Ecwid, so it's a bit hit and miss in that sense.

Christopher H.

You can only connect an online store and no other platforms.

Nigel Masimba R.

The only negative I might say about Ecwid is that there can be some restrictions when trying to integrate your sales channels into Facebook and Instagram.

Great for small business owners

Reviewed 6 months ago

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.

Il miglio modo per vendere online

Reviewed 2 months ago

L'utilizzo di Ecwide ci ha permesso di entrare in un mercato dalla porta principale.

Pros

Piattaforma di vendita online molto veloce e performante. Arricchita di tantissime funzionalità che la rendono davvero unica.

Cons

Mancano delle piccolissime futures che sono presenti in altre piattaforme come Shopify o Magento. Un esempio, la palette colori nella descrizione degli articoli.

Easy To Use - Hard To Customize

Reviewed 3 years ago

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.

Fast and Easy

Reviewed 3 months ago

Overall very good. I've implemented on at least 3 different sites. What I'm using it for is for simple stores with low inventory. I was not interested in spending a ton of time customizing. I know folks who got fed up using woocommerce (nice to customize but it can be overwhelming and slow down going live).

Pros

I loved that it had it's own wordpress plugin (access everything from wp dashboard) and that it was fast/easy to set up.

Cons

It depends on what you are selling and your inventory, but the free version is very limited (10 products and no way to limit inventory).
