Easiest ecommerce platform

Ecwid wins for Ease of Use, Ease of Setup (G2). In other words, if you just want to get started with selling online, Ecwid gives you the flexibility of embedding ecommerce in your existing site.

Shopware can build you an e-commerce solution, but chances are you’ll need to hire a developer to make it work.

Educational materials

Shopware has an academy complete with live training, webinars, and certifications. However, Shopware provides its own forum to users that is available in German and English only. So unless you’re willing to learn a new language, it can be overwhelming.

Ecwid has help centers in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian. Also, our 5- star 24/5 Ecwid support team is eager to help with every question you have.
