The writing is on the wall, or rather, the mobile device: customers are using their phones and tablets to shop now more than ever, and if your website isn’t optimized to increase your mobile conversions, you’re missing out in a huge way.
One of the unique Ecwid features is that you can add it to any DIY sitebuilder, blog, custom-build web site or a Facebook page with a few lines of code. If you have any web presence, you can embed your Ecwid store on it. Today, we’re glad to announce a new Ecwid feature that allows you to start selling online in minutes even if you don’t yet have a web site. Please welcome Starter Site — a nice mobile friendly one-page web site with a built-in Ecwid store.
Your online store is humming along quite nicely (thanks to your superior management and some help from Ecwid). Sales are strong. Visitors are staying on your site – and buying things. Then, out of nowhere, a small dip in activity settles in. Uh-oh.
The most successful businesses work hard to create a personal connection with their customers that makes us feel special and keeps us returning for repeat business.
We’ve released a new feature: “Favorites”. Also known as “Wishlists”, “Favorites” allows your customers to create a list of products they want to save for purchase during their next visit. We’re sure that the store owners will love this functionality as it provides a flexible tool for their customers to plan shopping and motivate them to order more.
A new version of our iPhone app has arrived! The app was completely redesigned from the ground up for iOS7. The new design is focused on clarity and content to ensure managing your store from your iPhone is a beautiful, crisp and enjoyable experience.
Understanding how shipping rates work is critical to running a successful online business, and Ecwid makes setting up shipping rates for your online store very straightforward.
We've released a brand new version of our login and registration page. The new page is awesome and is the first step in our big plan for the modernization of all Ecwid interfaces from the control panel to storefronts in 2014.
Good news for Indian merchants! Ecwid now supports PayU India, a popular Indian payment gateway that accepts credit card and debit card payments, various netbanking options and other payment methods.
Here at Ecwid we strive to make setting up and running an online store a rewarding and hassle-free experience. However, some occasions demand that we rise even further above the call of duty to provide small businesses with a little extra help to grow successfully.
