Ecwid plans and features

Ecwid offers a completely free forever plan with premium plans (Venture, Business and Unlimited) to fit the needs of any business. The free plan is a great way to test the platform. Use any premium plan to add new features and functionality to your store. This guide will help you decide which plan works best for you.

In addition to the US Dollars, we offer pricing in some local currencies, including the British Pound, Euro, Indian Rupee, Mexican Peso, and Russian Ruble. Learn how to upgrade to a paid plan.

If you ever pause or close your store, make sure to cancel your app subscriptions as well to avoid additional future charges.

Mobile in-app subscription

You can sign up or upgrade to a paid plan in the Ecwid Ecommerce mobile app for iOS. Subscriptions automatically renew unless you cancel the subscription.

We offer the same three paid plans (Venture, Business, or Unlimited), but with some differences in pricing. For prices and plans, see the table below:

3-month price: charged every three months $44.99 $104.99 $299.99
Annual price: charged once a year $149.99 $349.99 $999.99
Transaction fees $0 $0 $0

*The 3-month Intro paid plan is available for iOS mobile app subscriptions. When you subscribe to the introductory plan in the mobile app you will receive this discounted rate for a 3-month subscription even if you already have a paid plan before. Only applicable for first-time 3-month Intro mobile iOS subscriptions.

To sign up for a free account (no credit card required), upgrade, or change your plan at any time simply go to Store → Billing and Plans → Choose a plan and subscribe in iTunes.

Do I need to enter my credit card details to sign up?

No. You can sign up and use Ecwid's Free plan without entering your credit card details. We only ask your credit card details when you subscribe to a premium plan.

Can I change my plan?

Yes, you can upgrade, switch or downgrade your plan at any time.

How can I print my receipt for a paid plan?

Ecwid’s payment processor (Braintree) sends you an email after you’ve been charged. This email contains an attached receipt in PDF format. You can also see your receipts in Ecwid Control Panel → My Profile → Payment History by clicking View Receipt.

Do you charge transaction fees?

Ecwid does not charge any transaction fees. However third-party payment providers supported by Ecwid (like PayPal, Authorize.Net, etc) may charge extra fees and/or enforce rules concerning what you can and cannot sell using their service. When you set up an online payment method, we advise checking with the payment provider regarding their rules and fees.

Do you offer discounts for multiple stores?

Not at this time. However, we can help create multiple Ecwid stores. The Ecwid Partner program allows you to create multiple stores and maintain them all from one place. Check out our Partner Program to see more benefits.

Is Ecwid PCI Certified?

Yes. Ecwid is PCI DSS validated. This means all your data and customer information is secure.

Can I use my existing domain name?

Yes. You can use an existing domain name you already own. We also give you a free domain name to get you started.

Can I sell from existing websites?

Yes. We have lots of ways to add e-commerce to your existing website or blog. You can add single product widgets, buy buttons, or embed your entire store.

Can I sell digital products too?

Yes. On all premium plans, you can sell e-books, videos, music, software, and everything else digital.

Do I need an SSL Certificate?

Ecwid’s Instant Site comes with an SSL Certificate. However, you must use your own SSL Certificate if you added Ecwid on any other website.
