Ecwid at CloudFest: World-Class Partnerships for Small Businesses

CloudFest is one of the world’s top cloud events, held in Rust, Germany. During the event, we showcased the Ecwid e-commerce platform, which we use to empower 1.5 million merchants with the best technology, to a wide range of companies. The event was phenomenal — see for yourself in our recap.

We had a strong physical presence on the exhibit floor. Our booth was bustling with activity for five days in a row. In partnership with Duda, we displayed live omnichannel product demos, such as:

  • The embeddable Ecwid storefront to add on any website
  • A native merchant-branded mobile app for consumers
  • A mobile store control panel with POS, perfect for merchants
  • Our new Sell on Facebook solution.

Erik Suhonen Erik Suhonen, Head of Partner Marketing and Program Management:

“As a recent launch, our ‘Sell on Facebook’ solution was well received. We demoed it live to many interested companies. In the coming months, we will be releasing additional functionality that is going to enhance our partner experience, bringing our Ecwid e-commerce platform to more merchants globally.”

Dmitry Verbichenko Dmitry Verbichenko, VP of Business Development:

“The new version of our e-commerce plugin for WordPress integrates Ecwid with the WordPress ecosystem like never before. Ecwid Mobile enables you to create an e-commerce website using nothing but your smartphone. Partners loved our new features, which will soon be available through their channels.”
