8 Ecwid Store Examples that Sell Education Courses

7 min read

Because of the flexibility of online technologies, the online education market is projected to reach $350 billion in total sales by 2025. The pandemic, with its nasty habit of stranding people in place, opened a number of new opportunities for them to explore cyberspace.

One of the most popular of these cyber-housed possibilities has become online education (or e-learning). Platforms like Udemy, Coursera, Lynda, Skillshare, Udacity entered a new era of prosperity, serving millions of people interested in learning new skills and staying up to date on the newest trends as professionals in the new world of pandemic-induced distancing.

However, professional evolution or growth is not the only reason people have turned to online education. Some people want to change their lifestyles, improve their health, change daily habits — in short, to become better humans.

Both categories have people seek help: whether it be a tutor or general guidance. And you can become one of those who will take these wanderers by the hand and teach them the valuable skills they seek.

But you need a tool, an engine to power your knowledge—a class to fill with students, the process by which you can host your courses. As this is the Ecwid blog, we’d like to offer up a suggestion: using Ecwid for hosting your online courses. Whether your educational materials are printable files or videos — you’ll find a friend in Ecwid’s ecommerce business model.

To light up your imagination and give you some ideas on how to organize your own educational business and get your knowledge out into the world, we’ve made up a list of Ecwid-based businesses that already successfully sell courses online.

Remember: there’s nothing silly about teaching people the things you already know how to do. You have skills that someone doesn’t have. You just need to find the right audience for your expertise.

Without further ado: a list of educational resources and courses, powered by Ecwid.

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.
