All Squared Away. Ecwid Makes Selling Online Easier Than Ever for Brick and Mortar Retailers By Integrating with Square

Ecwid enables retailers using Square to instantly create an online store from their Square product inventory, synchronize offline and online sales and inventory changes in real-time and add a storefront to any online presence, including Facebook.

SAN DIEGO, CA  October 22, 2015 — Ecwid, a leading commerce platform that enables anyone to sell easily on any website, today announced it has collaborated with Square to offer retailers the ability to sell anywhere online and keep all channels in sync. With e-commerce spending expected to exceed $3.5 trillion by 2019, small businesses in the US and Canada now have a more effective way to take advantage of this opportunity, no matter where their customers choose to shop.

By combining Ecwid and Square, merchants now can import their Square product catalog in one click, create an online store with Square payments automatically configured and manage their end-to-end business in one place. Retailers then may add their new online store seamlessly to any site online or multiple sites at the same time, thanks to Ecwid’s modular design. When a sale is made either online or in-person, all product, inventory and order data is synchronized automatically, providing seamless management between online and physical store sales. Today, this solution is available through Square in the Square App Marketplace or via Ecwid at www.ecwid.com/square.

“With Ecwid, I was able to get my online store up and running without having to hire a web developer. On top of that, it gives me unified inventory management, so my gallery and webstore always are synced,” said Melanie Cronin, owner of Cronin Art USA, “Everything is so easy with Ecwid and Square, I literally can treat my in-store and online systems as one. Now, we sell our art all year round to anyone, wherever they may be, instead of just during the tourist season.”

With Ecwid and Square merchants now are able to:

  • Expand beyond their physical locations and grow their business online
  • Auto-create an online store with Square payments pre-installed
  • Easily add their store to any site online, including their Facebook page
  • Synchronize and easily manage their product, inventory, and sales data
  • Increase sales

“Ecwid is excited to team up with Square, the leader in POS and payments for small businesses. Together our multi-channel solution is helping small businesses grow more quickly and realize their dreams.” said Jim O’Hara, Ecwid president. “Retailers need the flexibility to sell anywhere without the complexity of manually managing multiple sales channels. Now they never have to worry about online or offline commerce — just selling.”
