What our merchants are saying about Ecwid vs. Shift4Shop

“...I gave up and moved to Ecwid (I sell Vape products online and there's not as much choice as you think) and with Ecwid my site was up and running within hours. Avoid 3dcart [former name of Shift4Shop] if you are like me and not skilled with website creation, my opinion.”
