How a White-Label Reseller Brings Powerful Ecommerce to International Clients

4 min read

In our blog, we often share some amazing stories about how ecommerce merchants are building their stores from the ground up with Ecwid by Lightspeed. But wait, it’s not just small business owners benefiting from Ecwid’s power!

Ecwid forms partnerships with all kinds of site builders, agencies, and payment providers to offer a top-notch ecommerce solution to their clients. These success stories will leave you feeling inspired and ready to take on the world!

In this article, we’ll share how a white-label reseller revolutionized ecommerce for international clients and took their online business to new heights. With the power of the Ecwid by Lightspeed partnership, Hostopia transformed its services, attracting more customers and expanding into new markets.

Meet Hostopia

For over 11 years, Hostopia, a proud member of the HostPapa family, has partnered with Ecwid by Lightspeed. Our white-label reseller program allows them to offer an ecommerce solution under their own branding. Their merchants can effortlessly sell products from their Hostopia website using Ecwid’s advanced shopping cart.

Looking for an Ecommerce Solution

In the early 2000s, Hostopia took the plunge and developed its own ecommerce tool. However, after battling the struggles of maintaining it for years, they waved goodbye and teamed up with a competitor instead. Though the partnership was alright, it lacked the spark they truly desired.

That’s where Ecwid came in to lend a hand! The moment Hostopia crossed paths with Ecwid, they sensed a golden opportunity for a smashing partnership.

 Ecwid checked all the boxes for us—that is a real challenge to find. Lou Nikiforovski, General Manager of Apps at Hostopia

As for Hostopia clientele, from international cookie support to privacy protections and hyperlocalization of currencies, Hostopia has got it all covered! With these fantastic localization features, they are able to conquer new geographical markets and take the product to the next level.

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.
