Celebrating Ecwid’s 5th Birthday!
It’s hard to believe that just five years ago, Ecwid was released to the world as one of the first 100% AJAX e-commerce platforms. For small business merchants, AJAX may not mean much, but what it does for small businesses is powerful. Since 2009, Ecwid has enabled merchants with an existing website, blog, or Facebook page to easily embed an online store that blends into the respective site.
After five years, we’re grateful to the community for helping us achieve so much!
– We already have 560,000+ registered merchants.
– Ecwid is used in 174 countries. Its storefront is translated into 45 languages. It means about 5.5 billion people can see your store in their native language.
– From very beginning our users created about 45 million products and uploaded 250 million of product images.
– Ecwid servers process more than 1.5 billion requests every month
