Edit Dozens of Products at Once in a Spreadsheet

A lifesaver when you need to edit lots of product details fast! This tool is called Bulk Product Editor, and it allows you to display dozens of products that need to be edited at once in a convenient table.

This way you can update lots of products without having to open product details one by one. It’ll save you hours of work if you have a big catalog that needs to be updated!

If you previously updated products in bulk via a CSV file, you’ll especially appreciate this new tool. Now you don’t have to export products to a CSV file, edit them, then import the edited CSV file back to your store.

For example—you need to make the following changes:

  • set up “Compare to” prices for products on sale
  • update stock for a new batch of products you’ve just received
  • update prices of product variations.

Now, the fun part: you can make all those changes at the same time in Bulk Product Editor right in your Control Panel. Editing products in bulk has never been easier!

To see for yourself, select the products you want to edit, click “Bulk Update” and choose “Edit Selected” (or click “Bulk Update” and choose “Edit All”). You’ll see a spreadsheet with product attributes you can edit. But wait, there’s more! You can display just those attributes that you’re going to update, to make editing even more convenient.

You can hide attributes you don’t need to edit

One more pro tip in case you speak keyboard. Yes, you can use your keyboard to navigate and edit product attributes in the spreadsheet!

Bulk Product Editor already has robust settings for editing lots of products at once, but we’ll be bringing you even more in the future! Have ideas on how this tool can make your routine easier? Share “em in the comments below!

Apply ‘Same Changes’ to Hundreds of Products in Two Clicks

If you need to make the same change to different products, you can do that without updating them one by one, or without even opening the Bulk Product Editor.

Say you want to hide all seasonal items, or assign categories to products. Now you can mass update several products in just a couple of clicks! The result: all changes are applied faster, which saves you not only effort, but a bunch of time too.

If you want to manage categories for several products, enable or disable them, add or remove their product ribbons, you can do that very quickly without going to each product’s details. Simply select the products you want to update and click ‘Bulk Update.’ Then choose the change you want to apply to the selected products.

For example, you can instantly assign a category to several items:

Manage categories without opening product details

As the name suggests, this tool is perfect when you need to apply the same change to several products. If you want to apply different changes to products, Bulk Product Editor is still your best option.

We’re going to add more options for mass updating products in the future and we’re happy to hear your thoughts on the matter. What do you think you should be able to update in two clicks? Share your fabulous insights in the comments section!

Allow Customers to Pay What They Want for Your Products

At Ecwid, we’re all about options. So, here’s a new one: now you can set up your shop so customers can enter their own price for your product. You can also indicate recommended pricing tiers. Or, set up a minimum price limit for your product, so that it can’t be purchased for any amount below this recommended minimum, while leaving the rest up to them.

The ‘Pay What You Want’ pricing model is perfect for:

  • running a nonprofit (use it to collect donations!)
  • selling art, crafts, or digital goods, and allowing customers to contribute a little extra money in appreciation of your work
  • running a crowdfunding project — collect donations on your site without commissions and third-party rules
  • running a promotional offer — enable the ‘Pay What You Want’ pricing for items on sale
  • testing prices for your new product — set up different price limits and payment tiers to find out what price your customers are willing to pay for new items.

Customers can choose from prices you suggested or enter their value

Switch to Tax-Inclusive Prices

Sellers from Europe, India, Australia, or New Zealand, take note! You’ll appreciate these settings, as it’s likely you’re used to working with tax-inclusive prices (as opposed to before-tax prices) when communicating with suppliers and customers.

Now you can switch your whole store to the ‘enter prices with taxes’ mode, in just one click. After that, you’ll be able to enter tax-inclusive prices, and taxable customers will see all product prices and fees in your store with tax included.

You’ll appreciate the benefits of these new settings. Some reasons why:

  • No need to calculate the net price for each product to set up taxes for it. You just enter prices with taxes right away!
  • Customers will see prices in a more convenient format, as all prices and fees are displayed with taxes included. That applies to product prices, shipping and handling costs, price modifiers, and discounts.

Switching to tax-inclusive prices takes just one click

Generate Legally Compliant Tax Invoices

More great news for sellers from Europe, Australia, India, or New Zealand! Now you can generate legally compliant tax invoices from your Control Panel. Those are documents that you can use to report earnings to tax authorities. Their special formatting and the ability to set up unique tax invoice numbers make preparing reports for tax authorities a piece of cake.

You can generate tax invoices manually, or set it up to generate automatically when orders are placed. Best of all, working with tax invoices in your Ecwid store is super convenient:

  • You can download tax invoices as PDF files to prepare reports for the tax authorities
  • You can download tax invoices in bulk, say, for a previous quarter
  • It’s easy to create negative invoices for cancelled orders and refunds
  • Editing invoice content is a breeze thanks to a convenient editor.

Adjust tax invoices contents and template to the needs of your store

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.
