Advanced features to grow your business

GoDaddy’s ecommerce platform has basic tools for beginners, and less room for growing businesses.

With Ecwid, you get access to advanced ecommerce features to scale your business such as centralized inventory, automated taxes, unlimited storage space, and more.

Additional apps to complement your store

Download apps and tools to save time and boost your store's growth, such as tools for accounting, store design updates, marketing, and more.

With a GoDaddy store, you are limited to their current capabilities.

Free forever plan to sell and scale

Ecwid’s free plan is free forever. You can start selling your products (up to 5) right away and upgrade when you are ready.

GoDaddy’s free website builder is free to create your website, but you must upgrade to a paid plan to start selling.
