Who needs an ecommerce partner?

To better understand how Ecwid can help your business, here are a few partner scenarios we’ve encountered before.

Agencies

You’ve built your digital service agency from the ground up. To complement your marketing offerings, you want to add an ecommerce solution that will round out the service packages. But building and maintaining this solution will require more bandwidth than you’re ready to give.

Site builders

You’re the expert in building attractive, feature-rich sites for your clients, with a steady stream of business. You have some experience with ecommerce, but don’t want to spend months building out some custom functionality. And you’re looking for an easy-to-integrate solution that is sophisticated and well-maintained.

Payment providers

Clients come to you for safe and secure online payment management. They trust your expertise to handle customer-facing payments, whether it’s in-person or online. Now, with more and more small businesses launching an online presence, they’ll need a combined solution that will give them both.

What’s the value in adding ecommerce?

Along with contributing to the dynamic growth of your company, you’ll also gain the added benefit of instantly upgrading your business with ecommerce.

Save on services

At Ecwid, we offer several partnership options, including the ability to resell our white label ecommerce solution. To your customers, your website’s ecommerce function appears as your own branded software, but in reality, it’s built and maintained by Ecwid. In a matter of days, you’ll level up your business with another professional service, saving you the time and money you’d spend on developing it yourself. And all the while, you can market the solution as your own.

Increase revenue and growth

Just like you encourage clients to growth their business, offering an ecommerce solution allows you to take the next step with your own business as well. By partnering with Ecwid, you’ll receive a discount off of plans, which you can then turn around and sell to merchants at your set price — so you can expect to earn!

If you are a payment provider, set your payment method as the default in your clients’ stores and automatically earn on transaction fees. With increased revenue to invest back into your business, you’ll find multiple ways to grow!

Expand into new markets

The COVID-19 pandemic has ushered along the age of online business and exploding ecommerce. If small businesses and clients weren’t online before, they certainly are now — or they should be, which offers your agency and business the opportunity to expand. We’d bet that clients won’t even consider hiring you if you don’t offer ecommerce services.

Find the best partner fit for you — and your clients

How do you know which type of Ecwid partnership is right for you? Well, a good place to start is through listening to client feedback. Send out a quick survey to clients asking what their future goals are. This can help you gauge what features you should focus on and look for.

And we are the only ecommerce referral program with a 20% lifetime commission.

Ecommerce that has your back

So simple to use – even my most technophobic clients can manage. Easy to install, quick to set up. Light years ahead of other shop plugins.
I’m so impressed I’ve recommended it to my website clients and am now using it for my own store along with four others for which I webmaster. Beautiful coding, excellent top-notch support, great documentation, fantastic how-to videos. Thank you so much Ecwid, you rock!
I’ve used Ecwid and I love the platform itself. Everything is so simplified it’s insane. I love how you have different options to choose shipping carriers, to be able to put in so many different variants. It’s a pretty open e-commerce gateway.
Easy to use, affordable (and a free option if starting off). Looks professional, many templates to select from. The App is my favorite feature as I can manage my store right from my phone. Highly recommended 👌👍
I like that Ecwid was easy to start and to use. Even for a person like me, without any technical background. Very well written help articles. And the support team is the best for my opinion.
For everything it has to offer, ECWID is incredibly easy to set up. Highly recommend! I did a lot of research and tried about 3 other competitors. Just try ECWID and you'll be online in no time.
