Discover 20+ New Ways to Leave Your Competition in the Dust with Ecwid Igniter

4 min read

During the five-day holiday shopping period last year (from Thanksgiving Day to Cyber Monday), a record 196.7 million people shopped in the US alone. Not only that, Cyber Monday was the biggest holiday-shopping day of the year in terms of sales, outperforming even Black Friday.

What does this mean for you as an online business owner? Black Friday is going to be big, but hold your breath because Cyber Monday is going to be even bigger.

Brace yourself for an increase in orders and a higher volume of customer support requests. This year, you must ensure your online store is ready for the busiest shopping days of the year.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, don’t worry — for the past few months, Ecwid by Lightspeed has been developing amazing features to help you prepare for this busy shopping season and maximize your sales.

We’d like to introduce you to the new Ecwid Igniter, which will come in handy over the busy holiday period. This comprehensive series provides invaluable insights on how to optimize your online store with the latest Ecwid tools.

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.
