Where to start selling?

With Ecwid, the real question is “Where can’t you sell?” Our code allows you to add your Ecwid store to several sites (e.g., blogs, social media, etc.) and manage products and sales from one store admin panel.

As soon as you sign up, Ecwid provides a Instant Site. It is a free landing page for you to start selling online. You can edit its content and design to best showcase your business.

If you already have a website, you can find instructions for adding Ecwid to any website here. Ecwid has special plugins and extensions for WordPress, Joomla and other content management systems (CMS) as well as popular site builders like Wix and Weebly. You can also add your store to any custom built website.

You can showcase products on your website or blog pages individually with Buy buttons. Ecwid also can help you sell on Facebook and Instagram as well as major marketplaces including Google Shopping, Amazon, and eBay.

You can even create your shop on TikTok, the most fast growing social media where people tend to spend more and more time. For now, TikTok Shopping is available for US and UK merchants only, but you can advertise on TikTok even if you are from another country.

Ecwid offers integrations with Lightspeed Retail (X-Series), Clover, and Square POS and with Alice POS. Point of sale (POS) systems can help you keep in sync inventory in your brick-n-mortar and online store. You can also use Ecwid’s Sell on the Go app with PayPal Here to make personal sales at a trade show, farmers’ market, and anywhere else your business takes you.

Once you’re all set up, let everyone know where they can shop with you! Make sure you review our Marketing Checklist to help promote your store.
