Is Ecwid the ultimate
With Ecwid, you get more than just an ecommerce platform. You get a partner who’s invested in your success. Find out why Woo merchants choose Ecwid for building their online empire:
No coding skills required
Ecwid is available for both WordPress.org and WordPress.com, which means it integrates seamlessly into existing websites without any coding. If you want a
no-hassle solution, Ecwid takes the gold.
No need for designers
Ecwid has over 70 free design themes optimized for a variety of industries, all
ready-to-use with a single click. Meanwhile, WooCommerce offers only one free theme, and it often requires manual modifications from a designer.
set-up & ready to sell out-of-the-box
To start selling with Ecwid, all you need is a product, a hand, and 10 minutes to spare. But before you can sell with WooCommerce, you’ll need to go through the entire website building process before you can begin listing your first product. And even then, don’t expect anything as easy as Ecwid.
Ecwid is secure
WooCommerce stores aren’t secure by
default—merchants will be reliant on their host and additional security features to secure their new stores. But Ecwid is a PCI DSS Level 1 Certified Service Provider, which means all your payment and transaction data is secure right out of the box.
Manage your store on mobile
The Ecwid app isn’t just the perfect tool to manage an existing store, it’s also the only tool that can create one. That’s right, Ecwid is the first
mobile-only e-commerce solution. And it works for both Android and iOS. While WooCommerce offers a mobile app, you’ll need a desktop to adjust your design and layout.
No vendor lock
WooCommerce also requires additional 3rd party plugins for many of their features and sales channels. Ecwid has
built-in capability to sell on social sites and marketplaces like Facebook, Instagram, and Amazon.
What merchants are saying about Ecwid vs. WooCommerce
Way better/easier than WooCommerce. I’ve tried both Ecwid and WooCommerce and found Ecwid superior in every way. It’s easy to understand how to set up, add products and comes full featured even at the lowest tier price. I’m not nickle and dimed for every feature that’s necessary for an online store. We’ll have 5 stores up and running by the end of the year and they will all be Ecwid stores.
Ecwid has all the options and support you want from a ecommerce platform and integrates with existing site beautifully — get started and start selling for free and get added functionality for a reasonable price. Just does what you want really :)
What do you like best? How easy it is to add products and plug it into my WordPress site! It's really nice to be able to get to all the settings right within my WordPress admin area. I can log in to Ecwid itself but I can also save time I just do everything from within WordPress. I like how easy it is to enable and disable products.
I found this sales channel plugin settings far much better than others similar, like WooCommerce, for example
ECWID is an excellent product. Easy to use with comprehensive features and the free version has all you need to set up your
e-commerce site and comes complete with a free one page website. Highly recommended.
