Pros

It is very simple to upload products, and integrate to 3rd party sites. The widget also uploads very quickly even though it's external.

Cons

The basic membership only allows for a few products. The tiers of products can get a bit pricey as the inventory increases.

Pros

I was so intimidated about adding an online store to my website because it seemed to be a daunting task. You can imagine my surprise when it was template-based, point and click, copy and paste and the store was up! The sales tax integration was even more helpful. My store was up and running in no time.

Cons

Ecwid places a limit on the number of products you can include in your store catalog for free. If you have more than 10 items, you will need to pay to add them to your store.

You will really like the cart because you will get extensive cart features, deals and discounts as they are partnered heavily and integrated multiple shopping payment options.

I think if they extend to integrate with google payments, samsung payments, social streams it would attract more visibility.

Pros

It looks great on smart devices! It has the ability to add a simple piece of code to your site and your cart is up and running. I save a lot of money with Ecwid as in it is free unless I am adding more than 10 products and the SEO is amazing! Very short learning curve to use this software and it is fun to work with. It has a clean dashboard which is easy to use.

Cons

There is only an ability for email support to create a ticket. For me this is frustrating because I like to have chat support available as much as possible.

An Excellent, Light-Weight Shopping Cart Tool

Our organization chose Ecwid after much shopping around. We needed to deploy a shopping cart quickly that would allow us to sell a handful of products. The trick for us was that we also needed to integrate the cart into our highly-customized website and into our contact database systems. Using Zapier and few small tweaks to the widget code, we were able to accomplish all of the above on schedule. It has been a wonderful tool for our needs.

Pros

Incredibly intuitive and easy to use and implement. Lots of out of the box widgets, styling and customization options. An extremely good value for the money.

Cons

Does not have all the bells and whistles of a more robust shopping cart solutions, however, I think this should only be a deal breaker for larger organizations or sites that need to manage more than a couple hundred of products. I also think that some of its export functionality leaves much to be desired, namely that it doesn't include Auth.net purchase IDs in the export, but we've been able to work around it.

Hiding in Shopify's Shadow

Ease-of-use

Ecwid is a fantastic alternative to Shopify that may not get enough exposure. A fantastic small and quick shopping cart that can easily integrate with your WP site or Facebook (some integrations may require you to be on a higher priced tier on either Ecwid or the target). Ecwid offers something extremely hard to find that should have it a household name, a free tier. While some shopping carts or larger shopping eCommerce hosts offer free trials, you have to commit right away or if they are free then they are something more akin to a hosted market than anything else. Ecwid offers a full feeling for their service with a possible 10 product catalog that you can integrate with your Wordpress site and build things out with confidence, scaling later when you need to instead of having to commit early which means accounting for lower overhead as you build out your presence.

Pros

Fantastic introductory features and pricing - Great bunch of features and integration - Integrates with Square - PCI compliant shopping cart for wordpress

Cons

Some integration for what would be free services are only available on higher paid tiers, which is perfectly fair, but is also a bit of a con and there is some confusion as to which tier you need to be on to unlock certain premium add-ons.

Ecwid is super affordable! It's also great that they have a free plan available.

Cons

Ecwid provides mostly basic designs, nothing too complicated. I think this makes it a good tool for start ups, not so much for larger, more established businesses.

Great customer support to answer your different questions. Easy to start up and looks good without much effort. With maintenance, change and all the boring stuff like shipping and VAT the product becomes a bit harder to use.

Pros

Easy to setup the first time. You quickly get a feel for how the system works, and how you can change pictures text and all that has to do with presenting your product.

Cons

The fine print and all the practical details of for instance shipping and VAT is not very intuitive. It furthermore is very difficult to control this when you go from a paid to a free version which keeps you in a locked position when you want to shift. This is true if you want to scale down your shop for a while.

I'm in shock how helpful Ecwid representative are. They by far surpass any platform I've used online for customer service and I use a lot. Ecwid reps are as much or more helpful even through chat, than other companies are by phone. They have a lot of different things you can do with their e commerce app and they are 100% up to par technically. So if I can't understand an application, they gladly jump in, and teach me how to do it, or they do it. I am gobsmacked at the user friendliness of an APP for people lay in tech. And I'm equally gobsmacked at how educated technically, polite, and generous with their time, that Ecwid reps are.

Pros

Ease of use, even for people that are not tech savvy.

Cons

Hmmm. Can't think of anything.

Great, not much cost for the ability to have a online presence that resembles a propper online shop. Thank you Ecwid

Pros

It supports the little guys - It gears you for being able to sell online without paying huge costs for a lot of silly perks you don't need

Cons

Perhaps it could be a little more customisable, as someone who doesn't understand coding this would help.

Ecwid is very easy to setup and start selling, free version (up to 10 products) includes all basic features you need for start.

Cons

Main reason I chosen Ecwid and switched to paid version was android managment application. It promised easy way to manage shop, add products, check orders...etc
Nice theory but in reality it's more pain than gain. You can add a new product, but if you want to edit one you will found that changes are in 95% discarded and all your work goes to hell. Same for text formating - if you are lucky you can save text in android app, but then again you need to correct design on computer. Developers "are working on solution" but nothing changed for some time.
Also from point of customer eshop loading is quite slow sometimes.

I have been with Ecwid for over a year now, I have decided it was time to open my Online Store so my customers can start ordering my Wedding Accessories such as: Ring Pillows, Flower Baskets, Toasting Glasses, Knife and Cake Server, Wedding Veils, Cake Topper and more....

Pros

It helped me fine the information I needed to start my online store, I hope to start selling on my nline store soon.

Cons

I had no problem with this software being used, in life there are going to be fall backs you have to learn too deal with it, or try to make it better.
