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

Value for Money

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

Product Quality

N/A
Value for Money

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.

The simplicity of setup and ongoing use. I like the layout and how quickly it loads onto a page for the end user.

Cons

Setting up a vertical index/menu for the shop appears not to be possible. If not, that is something that the team could work on.

I'm able to set it up as my website while I sort out my actual website.

It's very easy to use for both me and my customers.

Pros

It's easy to use and makes it simple for the customers to use as well. It's the best thing for small businesses. Thank you.

Cons

To get better and more useful features you have to upgrade. To be expected I guess. ;) At present each time I remember an option that needs updating I have to up date it in every product listed.

Time to launch the online store

Pros

It is easy to set up your online store and the UI is good. As a novice web designer, it did not take much time for me to integrate Ecwid to my website and launch the Online store. Also it is quite simple to make changes to the Online Shop.

Cons

The administrator delegation features can be improved. As an administrator, I am not able to delegate functions, such as shipping and closing orders, to another individual. If selected multiple features / functions can be easily delegated to other individuals, it will be good.

I've been using for 5 years. unlimited product options for product customizations. You can add LOTS of product photos to each product. FREE FOREVER, not just a free trial. So you can test it out for free for as long as it takes you to learn. You can upgrade and downgrade your plan whenever you want and as often as you want so it's perfect for a seasonal business. The BEST solution I have found for a handmade business. Using WP plugin currently and have also used imbedded on other platforms.

Cons

I have found minor hiccups with WP plugin. But usually I could work around. The WP plugin will slow load time of your site. Support has worked good for me but I wish they were a little more responsive.

Shipping cart for my online store

Pros

It's quick and easy to use. You can easily upload your shipping cart easily to the site. I really like that customer support is available and they always respond quickly and make sureyour questions are answered and any issues are resolved. They've even called me before to help savor money with a better monthly plan as I was paying for more than I needed. I trust thud clumping and have looked at others, but I have no intentions of switching.

Cons

Not all the updating features are available in the app but all the basic ones are. I'd like to be able to rearrange the photos in the app. That's all.

I like that it is really easy to setup and add to website. I set this up as I was building a website for a client. After I added the code to the website, the client can now edit and add/remove items from the website store using the Ecwid web interface without touching any of the code.

Cons

The feature to add all of the items to the website at once instead of one by one is a little hard to find. There is no clear path and I have to click around a few times to find that feature.

Pros

As an author, I don't need a full-fledged storefront. Selling autographed copies of books doesn't need a ton of features or monthly cost that I couldn't recoup. Ecwid was easy to set up and install on Weebly. The platform works great, and does exactly what I need it to. I'm looking forward to customizing it further as I go, but for right now, it suits my needs perfectly.

Cons

There isn't a lot of customization available out of the box, unless you want to code things yourself. I'd like a few different templates and things to make a storefront unique. I also noticed that it doesn't seem to combine shipping properly. It may be how I've set it up, but that's something to mention, at any rate.

The company is very responsive to ideas for improving their sites. The idea of involving their customers in the process of improvement is enlightened, to say the least. Their quick response has really impressed me.

Less administrative work and my business looks profesional.

Pros

As a small business owner with no employees this is a must have service. I used to manually email customers' a purchase order confirmation and shipping confirmation. With the software this is done automatically and it generates not just two, but three forms: order confirmation, order processing notice and shipping confirmation. I just love that, it frees up so much of my time.
Also, in the past I used to manually log all the information as to not loose track of what was done and what needed to be done. With Ecwid's software this process is done automatically and the templates are very professional. All the orders are filed in a database and I always have access to them. It's like having your own personal assistant 24/7. Customer service is 10/10. Any time I have a question I can depend on live chat for immediate resolution.

Cons

As a Venture Plan member I think the price point could be more competitive by offering more features such as the currency converter app . If you sell worldwide you have to get the app as an added cost. However, in all fairness every other competitor charges just as much if not more.
