    After using Ecwid for over 6 months, I can not recommend this product for someone who is serious about eCommerce and has a large product base and potentially will be doing drop shipping or need to ship from different source locations. There are some serious features missing in Ecwid that, had I known they were missing, I would have not chosen their option. What drew me towards their option was what appeared to be ease of use and that I could integrate my shopping cart with my current web design and hosting choices. But, I would again sacrifice that flexibility if I knew that simple import and exporting of products and categories would be so difficult and limited, that I could not do things like alter an invoice after an order is placed (which is a real problem for many people - that is really basic feature in my opinion) and have the option to create multiple shipping sources which is also missing for Ecwid. Also, while their team seems to be good at responding to questions, regarding development of their product, it seems they are stuck and in a holding pattern. Meaning, no new updates have happened as far as I can tell and in the back end of things current customers have been asking and voting on certain feature FOR YEARS that have still NOT been implemented even though the Ecwid team shows the status of the feature as being "In Progress". So, I again wish I could turn back the clock as I am stuck with this shopping cart for the time being unless I go through a whole lot of work to start all over again from scratch. If I were to do it all over again, for my needs, I would choose 3dcart as their system is way more sophisticated and has a lot more capability than Ecwid. Honestly, Ecwid MIGHT be a good option for a small store without a lot of product variations and categories, ships from one location, and will never need to alter an order once it is placed. Hope this helps for anyone out there searching for a shopping cart solution.

    To put it simply, Ecwid is one heck of a nice product. For this review, it integrated seamlessly with my test website and set up was generally pretty easy. I think it fits the bill quite nicely for users who want an easy to use store without having to redo all the work they’ve already done to create their websites. With Ecwid, adding a store is simply easy.

    To summarize my Big Cartel review Big cartel is an amazing deal for $9.99 a month, with some powerful features. It’s super simple and very intuitive but it is missing some things that other e-commerce systems have. I would recommend it to any company starting out and paired with a wordpress site you will have the best of both worlds.

    One of the biggest plusses Big Cartel has is the fact that you can set up a store without paying a dime, albeit a small shop with only five products but still free. Even if you do decide that selling five products just isn’t enough the pricing plans offered are still very affordable.Big Cartel might not offer all the features of bigger competitors, but truthfully it feels as if they are not catering towards the large multibillion-dollar corporate clients but rather have found a comfortable niche in the arts and crafts community, some of them graduating from Etsy to a solo career.
