Ecwid Setup and Design

The system has wizards for each platform you want to place your store on. If you have a WordPress site, just walk through three steps to get up and running. You can also click on options like Facebook and Joomla, depending on where you want to sell. The design depends somewhat on the theme you have on your website, but as you can see below, it displays photos well and appears clean and easy to navigate. The platform also includes a shopping application for both iOS and Android.


Ecwid comes with four plans, one of which is completely free. They market the free plan like crazy, and mention that many other platforms drag you into a free trial, where you will eventually have to pay.
