We’re constantly working on improving the look and feel of Ecwid stores. We strongly believe that a clean well designed customer interface directly impacts your sales. Having an awesome, fresh, usable design is a huge advantage over your competitors and directly leads to more sales.

After a lot of research, and several prototypes our designers have found a way to make Ecwid even more awesome.

While we are planning to release this new design in the future (no exact ETA yet), you can already preview it and take part in our Beta program. To participate please follow these easy steps:

  • Open your store
  • Change the URL in the browser’s address bar. Add the #experimental_design part to the end of the URL. If it already has the # symbol, remove everything after it and add “experimental_design”. So your URL should look like this: http://www.example.com/store.html#experimental_design
  • Refresh the page using this new URL and check the new Ecwid look. (The preview works for Windows and Mac users and for stores that are not embedded with iframes, like some sitebuilders (i.e. Wix ) 

You can check out the new design on our demo store: www.ecwid.com/demo-frontend.html#experimental_design

We have already tested this new design on small subset of users and received strong positive feedback. As one of our users said: “That is really great. New font is just gorgeous!”. Users also say that the new look is very impressive and fresh, so we are looking forward to releasing it to all Ecwid stores.

And lastly…
Happy April Fools” Day! Don’t worry this is just a joke : -)
