Sell on the Go app for iOS

The Sell on the Go app from Ecwid is a simplified version of the Ecwid Ecommerce mobile app for iOS. The app is designed to sell in person through avenues such as fairs, shows, conferences, or cash on delivery orders. With the app, you can scan products and process orders in seconds. The app is synchronized with your Ecwid store, so your catalog with the inventory control is always in your pocket which helps you avoid overselling and promote overstocked items.

While the Sell on the Go app is free, you must be on a Venture, Business or Unlimited Ecwid plan to gain access. If you’re on the Free plan, download the app to get a 28-day test drive.
