  • Store layout changes according to your design mockup, including headless ecommerce.
  • ShopApp® (your Ecwid store turned into a mobile app) and custom features for it.

Development steps

Here are the regular steps to fulfilling your request by Ecwid’s customization team:

  1. You send us a request.
  2. We discuss your needs via email to agree on the best solution, decide on how long it will take to deliver it, and estimate the cost. You get a dedicated project manager who will take care of the progress and whom you can contact at any time.
  3. You pay for the development based on our quote with your card or using PayPal.
  4. Once the payment arrives, we schedule when the development starts. As soon as it’s completed, our Quality Assurance team ensures everything works well and matches the initial project concept.
  5. After successful testing, we install the custom app on your online store in disabled mode. You can enable and try it when it suits you. For complex projects, you can ask to see a demo in a test store first.

That’s it! After the project is finished, you have 6 months of free support in case of any issues. If you ever encounter a bug, don’t hesitate to report it.
