At present, Ecwid serves more than 200,000 websites and supports more than 170 countries and more than 50 languages. It can be regarded as the fastest-growing rookie. Compared with other online platforms, the most significant difference between Ecwid and other online platforms is that it is equivalent to an online e-commerce tool. It can be integrated into other CMS systems as a plug-in. For example, you can install the Ecwid plug-in in WordPress or even install the Ecwid plug-in in Wix. You should know that Wix is an online platform and has its e-commerce.
Ecwid costs are still very clear: Plan fee: from $15 a month to $12.5/month a year because the free version does not support binding custom domain names Trading commission: 0 Transaction fee/processing fee: Ecwid and Shopify support many kinds; each one is different, depending on the payment method you use Theme fee: similar to Weebly, 0.
Generally speaking, Ecwid has advantages over Shopify and Weebly.
Advantages 1. The operation is simple and easy to use 2. Zero trading commission 3. Support multi-channel sales and multi-channel advertising 4. Support the integration of a variety of CMS system sales, and one store for multi-purpose 5. Products can be sold through the Ecwid mobile app, and advanced packages can have their brand app
Disadvantage 1. Free theme features are scarce and difficult to customize 2. Although it supports integration into other systems, it is also necessary to purchase the Ecwid plan. That is to say, if you want to sell products on multiple platforms, you may need to purchase two plans, one is the platform, and the other is Ecwid
Ecwid combines the advantages of various aspects and has complete functions. You can sell it through any channel, social, google, offline (pos), and so on, and the interface is simple. Of course, Ecwid also includes mail marketing, but it needs third parties such as Mailchimp. In addition, I don't think that Ecwid can make plug-ins by itself, and there are thousands of third-party apps on their official system to support shop building.
The only deficiency should be their theme. Free ones are too concise, and you have to pay for more custom functions.
