Ecwid is easy to set up, for the most part. However, it's a bit cumbersome as you customize, the interface is not exactly intuitive, and the reports are the worst! For example, if you collect email addresses in your sale, then try to export those for a mailing list, the .csv export is crazy unorganized and extremely difficult to work with. Half of the value of any selling software is the ability to easily export key data into a format that can be manipulated. Ecwid seems to spend no time or thought about this. Also, order numbers skip all the time (so you can go from order 3 to order 5 for no reason, leaving you wondering if order 4 is lost, failed, ,,,)
Using it, but not loving it. Wish I was.
I really enjoyed the benefits of ecwid webstore and my business is booming. But monthly fees are too much. Thanks Ecwid Team
The plugin is nice: displays everything as if you would be inside your Ecwid Shop.
But it is guite slow: takes 1-5 sec to load.
It also lacks the ability to display products using shortcodes: on-sale products, featured products, random products.
You should use an additional plugin: Product Advisor for Ecwid or Widgets Avalanche for Ecwid. But they both have their own issues as well...
Ecwid is good, but no have many theme can choice for Ecwid.
Such a great product but how is it they can not integrate recurring charges...no subscription capability. And then to top it off, on their sit over 1,500 folks have begged for this feature. What are we missing here? Is there some technology that will not work in this format? The people need the feature or at least an explanation. This platform is good and even great, but it could be stellar with a little love.
