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.

Cons

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

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.

It has been good. It doesn't have every function I need but I'm confident in time I'll be able to acquire it on my own or through Ecwid's own development.

Pros

This platform or sub-platform has served us very well. It is easy to build off of regardless of the program or platform you are using. You can start for free and scale with ease.

Cons

I don't like addons as a general rule. I say if you are going to include it then include it but don't nickle and dime me for every little thing I may need. I know this is a good way for companies to capitalize on revenue but I'm not a fan.

This gave us the option to sell our products online and in person while keeping track of inventory and putting on a great looking design and appearance.

Pros

We used Ecwid as a plug in to our website to sell our handmade board games. It was easy to set up through the app store on wix and integrated directly into our website. It also worked directly with our phone and square hardware to be able to create a POS system when we when to trade shows to be able to accept peoples credit cards quickly while emailing them a receipt.

The online store had many design and display options, the ability to put certain things on sale, the highlight items you want to move, and to separating things into different categories. It also keeps great track of your inventory. It really was a one stop solution to selling our product online.

Cons

There was a slight issue when we first started using it for an in person Point of sales system with Square as it would either record our purchases twice with no great way to correct that or it would only show the sale on the square app and not Ecwid so it wouldn't remove the item from our inventory. We eventually got it worked out though through their customer care and all was good.

It did what it said it did, but what it does isn't revolutionary. It may have practical applications for some, but for what I needed it for, I outgrew it very quickly

Pros

I like that it did what it said it does - turns a web site into a web store. That's about the extent of it's features thought!

Cons

It's lack of features and flexibility was a real letdown. Having built a web site from scratch and then wanting to turn it into a web store, I thought Ecwid would be a good solution. Turns out that I'd have saved more time and ultimately money buy just going straight to Shopify or something similar.

I think there could be a little better value for money on Ecwid, like being able to edit and create orders. This is not available on the Venture plan, and can be found on other ecommerce sites for the same price as the venture plan.

Fairly simple to use, lots of customisation options, good customer support. In my experience customer support is vital for confidence in a product or system, and I have found that in general the support that Ecwid provides is really helpful and fast.

Cons

Initially placing large numbers of products on the site was time consuming. But much worse was trying to rearrange your products. The process was hideously slow and clunky. To Ecwid's credit, the whole process has been improved out of sight. I now have very little to complain about.

It is great experince , I like it , and I am sure that if i am starting a new store as I planned , it will be only with Ecwid

Pros

the software meets most of the needs to establish and run an e-commerce business, I can't say it is "The Perfect software " because there isn't any". I like the simplicity of building the store, connect with third-party provider in the area of payment, shipping, etc. Also I very much appreciate the customer service proffissinalism in handling the customers issues .

Cons

1- store design and layout
2- the entry of product takes a long time, especially if one deal with hundreds of products, you have to move from page to another
3- it will be nice and very much help if some of the priced add-ins added to the software as a basic element of the software
4- the language used in the FAQ and assistant is not some time clear enpugh
