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 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.

 Good quality storefront

The software is very customizable. Easy interface with cc processor. No complaints. Its a great alternative to Shopify which is getting pretty pricey. It would be great to see some better options for wholesale businesses like myself.

Simply the Best eCommerce Application

14/04/2017

Ecwid is simply the best eCommerce system. There is everything to like about it. The admin interface is lightweight: functional without heavy design. Horizontal ribbon menus at the top of the page provide easy access to store setup and product entry. Learning the system doesn't take much time. A template is initially created for a group of like items/products that includes details about the item. Using the template, each item and details are entered into the database. Items can be added to a category, much like sorting, and items can be in more than one category. Ecwid has made sales easy! Many payment options are built in, and the storekeeper can offer the buyer choices. Multiple carriers and shipping methods are built in, including in-person pickup. The sales dashboard provides two views: a collapsed and an expanded view for each entry. Storekeeper can view sales activity at a glance. Ecwid wants it clients to be successful, and they are so helpful. Informational emails are sent to clients with articles, research, and best practices for ensuring success. Methods of support include knowledge database, email, phone, and chat. Staff listen to the voice of their clients and continually improve the software and add new features. Ecwid is a great value! A free store can be created and Ecwid will never delete it, although without a paid plan functionality is limited. One can't expect them to give their product away. They offer pricing categories to meet business needs, and the price is worth the investment!

Pros

Lightweight interface and easy to use. Store can be imported into any existing web page.

Great product

05/11/2016

CPSA has been using Ecwid for a while now and we are very happy with the product. The only thing I would like is a little bit more customization on how the page shows up on our website. Other than that we haven't had any issues.

Swag store set ups

04/11/2016

I have found this product to work pretty well for my small business. I create apparel type products for individuals in various organizations and teams. By setting up a general swag store with different categories for each group, these individuals are able to place orders directly by clicking their logo to open their store. I set order deadlines for each group , and can do multiple orders at one time if needed. I have found adding products and categories is quick and easy! However, I would like to be able to offer discounts in my various categories, maybe to one category, but not all at any given time. I am unable to figure our how to do that.

Ecwid is by far the best company I have worked with since starting my business!

03/11/2016

Ecwid made it so much easier for us to start our business without hardly knowing anything about website designing or dealing with a website for a matter of fact. Right from the beginning it was really easy for us to understand how it works compared to other company's that we have dealt with before and the best thing about it was the step by step process that they have set up for first time users. Thank you Ecwid for helping my company grow in ways in couldn't imagine.

Pros

The way they have everything setup to make it easier to quickly ship out products.

Cons

I've never experience anything when dealing with Ecwid
