Bring Your Online Store to the High Street With Ecwid and PayPal Here

6 min read

With global e-commerce sales reaching well over $4 trillion in 2020, many are predicting that online purchases will soon overtake physical transactions. But we here at Ecwid E-commerce aren’t buying it. Why? One word: omnichannel.

Consumers these days are using multiple channels and devices in their buying journeys. They’re browsing e-commerce sites, they’re shopping on online marketplaces, some are even buying through social media. Even physical shops continue to play a big role in people’s retail experiences.

This is why we firmly believe that retail success isn’t about online vs. offline selling. Ultimately, the retailers who will win are those who can keep up with their customers no matter what channel or device they’re using.

And with that, we’re thrilled to remind you that Ecwid’s integration with PayPal Here is available in the UK. Developed specifically for UK merchants, this solution lets you sell offline effortlessly using your iPhone or iPad. No need to set up complicated POS systems — simply use the PayPal Here app and its accompanying card reader, and you’re good to go.

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.
