Ecwid Launches E-Commerce Store Builder in Brazil

Ecwid Inc., maker of the only e-commerce application that enables retailers to add a full-featured online store in minutes to any existing website, announces the launch of its store-building solution in Brazil. Ecwid can be embedded into any mobile, blog or social media site as well, allowing merchants to operate multiple storefronts simultaneously.

Ecwid, the fastest-growing, global e-commerce platform for small businesses, now enables merchants to accept customer payments from PagSeguro, the leading Brazilian online payment solution which facilitates credit card and Brazil-specific options such as installment payments. PagSeguro serves 23 million Brazilian shoppers, enjoying a 70 percent market share.

Ecwid also has aligned with shipping leader Correios to help merchants secure accurate shipping rates for the Brazilian market. Shipping rates are calculated instantly and included during customer checkout, simply by enabling Correios in the merchant’s Ecwid control panel.

The end-to-end Ecwid customer experience also features a Portuguese language storefront and merchant control panel, creating the optimal ecommerce solution for Brazil. A demonstration of Ecwid’s Brazilian storefront can be viewed at: http://www.ecwid.com/demo-frontend.html?lang=pt-BR

Ecwid is used by over 375,000 retailers in 175 countries and in 45 languages, and is available directly from Ecwid and through a network of partners globally. The multi-platform Ecwid is also the most popular store builder app on Facebook.

“Ecwid is a powerful application that meets all of the requirements for an online store,” says Brazilian blogger (http://www.criarsitewix.com/) and website developer Gabriel Martins, adding, “With PagSeguro payments and Correios shipping, plus an admin panel in Portuguese, Ecwid is very intuitive and easy to use, even for those who never created a website.”

“Ecwid was conceived as a highly-functional e-commerce solution for retailers in every region globally, so we continue to focus on extending its usability and effectiveness in additional markets to deliver that vision,” says Jim O’Hara, president of Ecwid, Inc. "Brazil is among the world’s fastest-growing markets for e-commerce, and we are thrilled to enhance our offering there by integrating tightly with leading providers such as PagSeguro and Correios.”
