History of ECWID
The CEO of ECWID Ruslan Fazlyev, co founded X Cart, the world’s first PHP e-commerce platform in 2000.
Although X-Cart is a very successful product, he soon realised that there was an existing market of businesses and individuals all over the internet that already had an existing website that they didnt want to recreate again. All they wanted to do was
Sell online easilly, securely and sell from within their existing website
– without having to redesign anything – just copy and paste a few lines of code. Ruslan decided that this market was crying out for a product that would help them.
If they could copy / paste to create an online store in their current website – then they could do this anywhere else on the internet – One Shop – Many Websites includng Social Media – FaceBook etc
Located in San Diego, California and Ulyanovsk, Russia, ECWID is the world’s most popular “add-on storebuilder” for SMBs. And with millions of new websites being built every year, ECWID helps a new wave of businesses bring stores online around the world.
Ecwid was founded in 2009 to enable small businesses to easily add online stores to their existing sites.
