<script type="text/javascript">
ecwidMessages = {
"Main.store_closed":"Coming Soon!"

Thank you!

Thank you for contacting Ecwid Customer Care Team.

As I understand, you would like to change some texts in your online store, using this instruction: Custom Translations.

This approach includes adding of a special JavaScript code with the updated labels in the source code of the page, where Ecwid store is installed.

You can apply translation scripts only in case you have an access to the source code of a website. As I understand, you use Ecwid Starter Site as your main selling channel. It is possible to use Starter Site as you main storefront, however you do not have access to it's source code and cannot modify it.

If you want to have more features for your online store (for ex. you would like to change texts using Javascript codes), we recommend to create a website using any web presence platform you like and add your Ecwid store there. You can consider such platforms as Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, etc. Here you’ll find all information about adding your store to different platforms:

If you have other concerns, please feel free to write me back and it will be my pleasure to assist you further. Have a wonderful day!
