Ecwid dropshipping – Is Ecwid good for dropshipping?

Ecwid is an ecommerce platform that can its cheapest be used even for free. When you combine that with the fact that dropshipping might be particularly attractive to those who want to do ecommerce on a small budget it might be appropriate to ask if Ecwid is a good choice for dropshipping?

I like the Ecwid platform. It for example seems to be easy to use. It is also great that you can use Ecwid to build either a completely new ecommerce site or to add an ecommerce store to an exsisting website, at least to some. Those are reasons for using Ecwid for dropshipping. However, the number of dropshipping apps Ecwid works with is quite limited. You can use, for example, Spocket and Printful – which can be seen as dropshipping or print-on-demand app, but not a huge number of others. And if the limited number of dropshipping apps Ecwid can be integrated with are not to your liking, it might be a good idea to go with some other ecommerce platform for dropshipping.

The second negative regarding Ecwid and dropshipping is that Ecwid in itself is not the most advanced ecommerce platform, which means that you might not be able to build the type of dropshipping store you want with Ecwid. If those mentioned possible downsides don’t bother you, you might want to open Ecwid account.

Ecwid alternatives for droshipping

Shopify is in my opinion the best ecommerce platform. And as it also appears to work with the biggest number of dropshipping apps, it can be a very good solution for dropshipping. At least at the time of writing this, Shopify offers new customers a 3 day free trial and 3 months for a nicely discounted price. Open Shopify account.

The Ecwid alternative for dropshipping that I would recommend the second most is BigCommerce. It is not in my opinion for most users the best ecommerce platform but it is still very good and should work with at least a few more dropshipping apps than Ecwid. At least at the time of writing this, BigCommerce gives new customers a 15-day free trial. Open BigCommerce account.
