Ecwid Aggregated Reviews
I’ve never used Ecwid, but I looked at their site, and it seems like they should be providing the right product feed, so it could come down to things like a prohibited word in a description, an invalid currency, etc. They’re really particular about all the details.
My experience so far:
(background: I operate a sheet music publishing website and have done so since September of 2016.)
I started with Wix and Ecwid, but needed to be able to watermark my sheet music with the customer’s order information so that my music would not be disqualified from national and regional competitions and festivals. Ecwid told me that I’d have to put a downpayment of $2000 towards implementing this feature in their store. (Plus I would have to pay extra monthly to use it afterwards.)
If you’re looking for free, there are a few other free ecommerce stores that may work for you too. Ecwid and Square have a free store option.
Have you ever thought about your own e-commerce store? My hosting is on its own website without anything like Ecwid, Shopify, etc. For payment processing I just use both Stripe and PayPal.
I wanted to find an easier to use all in one solution because I hate coding. SEO with ecwid is not good because urls have #! In them. Plus I wanted to have everything in one place: print USPS labels, mailing list, better design via themes and reporting and abandoned cart and pther stuff.
Do you even have to ask…?
Just google “ecwid scam” or something.
Ecwid (from last I recall) is a widget that providers some basic ecommerce functionality but is not a full cart. You would need to use something else to make the storefront, you host that yourself. Ecwid is simply a light integration for ecommerce. That said, if I recall they are also the makers of X-cart which is no longer widely used. They suck. I wouldn’t recommend it, it’ll take too long for me to rant.
Ecwid is a shopping cart company that allows you to set up an account and take payments on your site.
Also they give you a starters shop that is one their website.
That address is someone’s shop (global pro it seems).
Honestly if they cant even have their own domain and store, i wouldn’t touch it with a 20 ft pole.

GRIN games emerged
As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
We love Wordpress and recently shipped two plugins into open beta for commercial sale.
v0.1.2.2 King The Monk - wordpress plugin to virally grow your email list

v0.1.1. Expanded core offering to visual productions
It's Autumn 2017 and GRIN tech agency's website is born.
