Welcome to Ecwid!

If you want to start selling products or services, you’ve come to the right place. Ecwid is an online shopping cart that powers 1.5 million merchants to sell online and in person.

Let us first introduce ourselves. The company name is a short form of “E-Commerce WIDgets.” Ecwid first appeared in 2009 as a few lines of code that you could add to your website to create an online store. Back then, we offered a revolutionary way to start selling without having a bunch of geeks constantly moderating your website.

By now, Ecwid has grown into a powerful e-commerce solution for small- to medium-sized businesses. We have offices in California, Vladivostok, Samara, and Ulyanovsk. We write code 24 hours a day, so you don’t have to.

Reach more customers by uploading your products to Facebook, Instagram, Google Shopping, Amazon, eBay, and even sell in person using one of the Ecwid POS integrations. Or simply sell a single product on any web page.
