Thumbs up Fourth generation e-commerce solution by Qualiteam

Dear Qualiteam Customers,

F-Cart, LiteCommerce, X-Cart – our company has been creating e-commerce solutions since 2001. Our products have evolved, but they are all generally based on the same concept: commercial open source PHP shopping cart software. Today, we are opening to the general public our fourth generation e-commerce solution: Ecwid.

There are seven key advantages to Ecwid:


* It's SaaS
* It's free
* It takes minutes to add to your site
* It supports drag-and-drop
* It has AJAX everywhere
* Upgrades are seamless
* It requires little to no technical support

We have been working diligently on a solution that would make running an e-commerce store as easy as possible. We pursued the goal to minimize cost of ownership and maintenance expenses. We wanted it to provide a unique experience to online shoppers and increase customer conversion for our clients. We have spent nearly one year working on Ecwid. Now, as we are ready to unveil our product, we want your feedback. Please have a look at Ecwid and tell us what you think of it.


You can access Ecwid at http://www.ecwid.com.

To help you to get acquanted with Ecwid, our staff will be active on the Ecwid forums: http://www.ecwid.com/forums.

And finally, one important statement: Ecwid is not here to replace X-Cart. Ecwid is designed to make life easier for those who want to avoid PHP hassles. Ecwid makes it possible to create a web shop and start selling in half an hour. It requires little to no technical knowledge. But X-Cart still remains the choice for people who need the power and flexibility of an open source PHP application. We have a dedicated team working on X-Cart version 5, so stay tuned: we have more surprises in a box for you.

From the demo - it looks promissing. How about putting some or a lot of its features in XCart v5? Or maybe you are doing this already?

Looks interesting... could be used perhaps on smaller sites as an alternative.

Just wondering if I am right in my understanding that SEO has been 100% ignored, with all the ajax that is present?
OK - just read your FAQ there... seems that somehow the mobile version is supposed to overcome the SEO issues - ummm... guess some users will believe this

Wondering how this new e-commerce release fits in with the strategy for X-Cart i.e. what is the strategic direction for them both (can we be assured that X-Cart will not also go ajax for pages that should be indexed)?
Just wondering what is the driving factor behind this new release - marketing, mod earnings?

Thanks in advance for a reply - Asiaplay

Hi rrf,
Great to see you on forum after a looooooong time

The first impression of ecwid reflects me a FAST STORE SETUP.

Any one who would like to start selling stuffs quickly without much knowledge of codeing would sure love this unique concept.

As mentioned in the demo video it's really took me just 5 minute to start the store without manual .

What about other payment gateway integration ?

This looks like a very cool, fast, easy way to get a store up in minutes. Like the iphone, this store needs no instructions. Very flexible, standard payment processor, shipping, etc. Doesn't seem to have complex config; eg, I didn't find a way to create required options or error messages to go with them. But for a simple store, my first impression is that this store is a dream.

For example, if you have a client with a few products, you could literally have this set up in existing site in about 5 minutes. If you want to customize the template, then it would take longer, but really, this thing is easy and FAST.

Regarding SEO, there is a mobile version of the store that can be loaded in mobile phones or ANY html browser, and this can be searched by search engines. There is an option to load this store on a subdomain on your site.

If money and speed are a bottom line for your client, this tool might be the answer. Of course, there is a down side: with this tool, your client probably won't need you

Also, sounds like there will be a paid version; maybe that will come with more bells and whistles.

Note: I was able to add this to a Joomla website in 5 minutes, and no formatting required.

I like the promotional tagline "PHP always was and still is the way to go if you have a bunch of geeks constantly modding your site." http://www.ecwid.com/events/454-454.html

Congratulations to Quality Team for a job well done.
The cart looks very promising!

May be it is just me, but the name "ecwid" needs rethinking from a branding/marketing point of view. I can instantly understand and remember X-Cart or LiteCommerce, but Ecwid not so much.
