Overall Satisfaction with Ecwid

Use it as a storefront and website for my business. I sell artisan cold process soap.
  • Easy to set up your website and store
  • Strong support material and systems
  • Good logistic integrations for payment, shipping, etc.
  • Good connectivity to Facebook, Instagram, etc.
  • Limited website architecture
  • Order editing ability not available in some plans. It is pretty basic functionality.
  • Allowed me to create an online presence with little effort
  • A sober, well designed storefront that enhances the shopping experience
  • Small investment upfront to get you going with your online presence.
WordPress had a more complex process of setting up a storefront, and a more expense solution at the end of the day to get my small business online presence out there.

Very strong support system. Videos, articles and chat channels. I can see they really have thought out their users needs and anticipated them well.
