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?
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 Jumpstart Partner program allows you to create multiple stores and maintain them all from one place. Check out our Jumpstart Partner Program to see more benefits.
Is Ecwid PCI Certified?

Yes. You can use an existing domain name you already own. We also give you a free ecwid.com 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?
