Can ecwid handle the huge traffic surge we're expecting?


We are set to appear on a popular reality show and need to know if ecwid will be able to handle the huge surge in traffic we are expecting - possibly over 1 million hits in one day. Can ecwid handle a large number of orders in a short period of time?

Our site will be on a managed server.

Thank you!

Hi!

Yes, Ecwid is totally available to handle such amount of customers per day.

Ecwid store works independently from your site, i.e., it uses its own Amazon servers where your store data is located and all the transactions are performed. But Ecwid is embedded into your site and is run as its part. The first thing your customers enter is your site. Therefore you should make sure the your site would be capable to handle such traffic at first place. Please, contact your hosting provider to make sure that your server will cope with it OK, or whether any enhancements are required to ensure that.

Yet even if your site is down, your Ecwid store will still be available and can be accessed at your simple store version. It will be functioning no matter what happens to your site and your customers will be able to place orders. So if you are not sure that your site will endure so many customers, be ready to provide your customers with the simple store link as an alternative. How to get Simple Store link: http://kb.ecwid.com/w/page/24960498/...e-store%20link

One more point that needs to be mentioned here is inventory tracking. As I can see right now all your products have unlimited quantity in stock. If you want to limit the quantity, please, mind, your products can be sold out quickly. In order to be aware of it beforehand, you should set it up so that Ecwid sends you a note when quantity reaches certain quantity:
In your Ecwid Control Panel-> Catalog-> product page click on “manage” link next to “In Stock” label (See screenshot: http://d.pr/i/NKCA). Thus you’ll know when there are few items left and will be able to stop selling this product.

What is the size (GB) of the Amazon servers where all of the transactions are performed?

Also, since we are going to have a surge in traffic, would it be possible (or recommended) to set us up on a dedicated server?
