Hello, this is a good shopping cart system, solid and stable and this plugin is a nice implementation, but it's very difficult to style, need a special item to customize the CSS directly to paint the cart like the rest of the site. If this implementation come in the new update I put five stars, thanks.
I'm a small business owner and was originally using another shopping cart software that was costing me a small fortune and did not have half the bells and whistles as ECWID. I love the SIMPLICITY and how well it performs for me and my customers. I small monthly fee enables me to provide my customers with nice discounts which generates more sales and looks more professional.
I am now adding a 2nd business and will be using ECWID shopping cart for that one as well! So Happy I found this one!
It's a solid plugin. Here's what it needs to get 5 stars:
• Better tax functionality. In Canada, food items are non-taxible...but the shipping still needs to be taxed.
• Combos - the ability to place a combination of products on sale together vrs. making a whole new product.
• Restrict product availability to certain regions. Allow customers to state their location or use location permissions to determine customer location and then restrict product offering.
• Ability to run two store fronts from the same inventory.
Otherwise it is a solid, dependable, and well documented plugin. It keeps getting better every month. Worth the money.
This plugin does exactly what its supposed to do and everything works fine. No complaints. They always code well. :-)
I have been able to use Ecwid for a wide array of needs. I am currently learning all of the features available to change the storefront to match my site and I'm impressed with its level of sophistication and ease of use. Support is well informed and helpful. Great work!
This has been a superb tool for our small non-profit. We host 3 different website, each with a different focus. Ecwid allows us to manage our small store in one place and make them available on each site with no effort on our part. We can focus on our work without worry.
It's clean, easy to use, and provides a lot of consumer friendly features. Plus it's SEO optimized.
This is just a super tool for our needs.
Thank you for making it available!
This plugin has been perfect for our site and enables us to sell our products without too much technical ability.
Yep, this plugin has a ton of great features, but there are a number of glaring issues as well. Two of the biggest for my particular situation are:
1. Lack of ability to bulk edit / apply related items.
2. Lack of ability to bulk upload digital product files and apply them to specific products.
For those with small stores, neither of these issues are a big deal. But for someone with thousands of items, it's a major problem. Editing thousands of items and uploading thousands of files one by one? Are you kidding me?! Ecwid's answer? Hire a programmer to provide the ability to do these two things. Excuse me? You know it's possible, yet you choose to leave out a two significant components? This is a monthly subscription program. It's NOT a FREE program. One would expect basic functionality to be included in a PAID program.
Heading over to WOO. This plugin simply isn't viable for a large store that offers digital downloads.
Ecwid offers flexibility, a clear, easy-to-use interface, features you need, and supports entrepreneurs with a great free plan and reasonable price for the next plan up. The features are great for small business.
Just getting started with ECWID. Using it on WordPress and now also on Facebook. The vast amount of online help, forums and tutorials were major factor in my recommendation to our charitable foundation to redo our raffle store with ECWID instead of a clunky first generation store app that had no open framework. As it turns out, when you upgrade to a paid status, you also get access to front line support at expertise levels that are useful for pros and "not so" pros. During my first online chat, the support person and I were re-designing CSS styles within a minute or so and the knowledge sharing has been there each time when I need it. Most of the time, a search of the help using a couple of key words takes me right to info that explains how I can do the customizations I am planning. Great job!
