Ecwid vs. Squarespace
Looking for a Squarespace alternative?
Compare Squarespace to Ecwid and choose the right ecommerce platform to build and grow your online store.
The easiest way to start selling online
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.
Squarespace is good when you use templates. But when you start editing templates to make your store look the way you want, professional design crumbles apart.
Start for free, upgrade when ready
Ecwid has a free plan that allows you to create your store and add products before you start paying for the platform. You don’t have to upgrade until you get your first sales.
With Squarespace, you have to subscribe to a paid plan to create your store. You have to spend money while uploading images, writing descriptions for the products, and testing available features.
Born for selling anything online
Ecwid is an ecommerce platform designed for effective selling online. It provides you with all the necessary tools to launch and run an ecommerce business.
Squarespace is a site builder that will help you to build a beautiful website. But selling online is not at the core of it.
Pro sellers choose Ecwid for their ecommerce businesses.
Ecwid lets you add ecommerce anywhere. You can start selling from scratch, on an existing website, on social media, on Google, and even in person.
With Squarespace, you can only create an ecommerce website. Unfortunately, you’ll have to move all your existing online business and traffic to your Squarespace website. Sometimes it’s painful.
