    I’m an SEO on top of being a web developer. Ecwid is a nice store as stores go, but for SEO it’s really bad. Your most important pages for SEO are not your product pages. They are your category pages and Ecwid provides on way to write your metatags for those categories. Instead, they grab your category description to make the meta tag which is better than nothing, but it puts your category name as the meta title and that can be really bad. For example, some category titles in the site I’m working on now are “Baby,” “Corporate,” and “Realtor.” The store sells gift baskets for new baby celebrations, corporate gift baskets, and realtor client gifts, but none of that would appear in the meta title in search. We’d have to put those descriptors into the category titles to get them into the metatitles and that would really muddy up our category menu. That title would also then print to the page, leaving us with the inability to show one thing in Google and another on the category page. People have been complaining about this for years but Ecwid has not stepped up to the plate to fix the problem. I would never recommend Ecwid because of this. There are too many other good options out there to risk destroying your ability get found in search.

    One of the benefits of having the business plan is “phone support” . In order to contact them you have to start a chat, then they try to talk you out of phone support and say the chat is better. “We’ve put our phone support on a scheduled basis so that we can provide you with the same detailed help as we do online in our live chats. I suggest you let me help you in the chat. Our phone agent won’t be able to show every step on screenshots as they only can speak.” I insisted and when she gave me the form to fill out , it didn’t work. She said she’d schedule it, but didn’t. I chatted with another specialist, and she also tried to convince me not to use phone support. When I insisted she gave me the same form that didn’t work. Anyhow, phone support has a lag of about 24 hours. I’m not sure why they say phone support is an option.
