Show a Random Product
How often do you browse around online stores without knowing what you need to buy? During those moments, you could be interested in any item the online store can offer.
If you are feeling lucky, install a free random product widget in your store. By laws of probability, you can surprise a dwelling customer with a product they haven’t even thought of yet.

Display Translations for Product and Category Descriptions
The internet helps us buy what we want and from wherever we want — even if it is a store located at the other side of the world. That convenience requires stores to cater to many languages at the same time.
Ecwid can automatically detect a customer’s language and show your storefront in that language. Now you can show a localized version of your product and category descriptions for foreign customers without any hassle!
Set what content you want for a specific language. Need a product description in Spanish for Spanish visitors? No problemo!
It is also possible to show some common content regardless of the visitor’s language and location.
Important: You will still have to get the translated content for your products and categories — the app doesn’t translate it for you (like Google Translate or other tools.) On the other hand, you can have meaningful translations.
It is quite easy to separate the content into languages and set it specifically for a language you need using a shortcode format familiar to WordPress website owners.
Here’s a basic example of this format:
Everyone will see this!
[lang=”es”]Only Spanish language visitors will see this![/lang]
[lang=”ru”]Only Russian language visitors will see this![/lang]
In this example, all visitors will see Everyone will see this!. But only Spanish or Russian visitors will see the extra content contained within their language block.
List Your Product on Amazon and eBay
Codisto LINQ integrates your online store with all Amazon and eBay marketplaces. This allows you to sell products on these platforms and manage the catalog in one place (Ecwid Control Panel.)
The workflow is easy:
- Install the Codisto LINQ application for Ecwid
- Connect to Amazon or eBay account
- Set the trading rules and product templates
- List your items on Amazon or eBay
When somebody purchases your product on Amazon or eBay, you can view the order details in the application too: Ecwid Control Panel → Apps → Codisto → Marketplace Orders → Select Amazon or eBay.
