How One Jewelry Business Grew 8X with Ecwid Payments

Pearl Parties. A great way to sell jewelry, specifically pearls, online. You may have heard of them because they are a recent trend and a fun, new way to buy jewelry.

Here’s how they work: first you look through an online store and buy a selection of oysters during a fun online party, usually via Facebook Live (hint: don’t forget your cup of coffee or glass of wine). After you pay for your oysters, you are in line for the party host to open the oysters right before your eyes.

The most exciting part is seeing the beautiful pearls that lay inside! Once the party is over and you have won a few more additional prizes, the host sends everything to the shipping address you have provided. Fun, right?

Stephanie Corn, owner and founder of PearlParty.co, is a trend setter who brought this business to life.

From the Beginning

When Stephanie was starting out, she did a lot of research to figure out what would work best for her business, not only for the type of jewelry and products she would sell, but the operations of her business, her website, and online store. Since PearlParty.co makes all of its money online, having an easy-to-use backend and online store was very important to Stephanie.

When she found Ecwid, she was thrilled.

“I’m really not a tech-savvy person, so when I found Ecwid, I immediately knew that managing my online business would be fluid and flawless.” said Stephanie.

Selling Online

All of Stephanie’s business comes from her online store and Facebook Live events.

Her Ecwid store works seamlessly on her Wix website. When she first got started with Ecwid, she noticed that adding products, product descriptions and making different product combinations was easy and intuitive.

“Being able to utilize Ecwid has been SO effortless and SO fluent.”, said Stephanie.

Although getting her store up and running on her own was easy, she knew she could always count on the reliable Ecwid Support team for any help that she needed.

Since all of Stephanie’s pearl parties are LIVE on Facebook, Ecwid has given her the ability to accept numerous sporadic orders at once, as well as add products quickly and easily during her live events, when she happens to come up with a new product at the spur of the moment. This has allowed her to make a lot of extra cash and helped her grow her business 8x in 6 months!

Time for Stephanie is money, as it is for everyone, and with Ecwid as her online store support system, she has been able to make her business a success — with ease.

Ecwid Payments

Something that Stephanie took into consideration when she started her business was the transaction fees for all payment providers that were available to her. What she found with Ecwid Payments is that it is one of the least expensive platforms, when it comes to transaction and processing fees. And that’s not the only benefit — it’s also very easy to set up and use!

One time, when a customer asked Stephanie for a refund, she went into the order to look at what exactly needed to be refunded. What she found when she looked at the customer account was that there was actually an easy “Refund” button! It was so easy for her to make her customer happy and give them a refund quickly and easily.

Stephanie commented, “Ecwid Payments is an amazing and effortless system to use”.

With the help of Ecwid Payments, Stephanie has grown her business 8x in 6 months. Having a successful online business has allowed her to have a comfortable southern California lifestyle, start an additional business called Our Group Pearls Wholesale and enjoy her personal life again.
