COLOGNE, Germany & BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Content Management AG (CM-AG), a leading provider of web-based applications and value-added services since 1999, is proud to announce its new partnership with e-commerce specialist Ecwid. Ecwid’s state-of-the-art, multi-platform shopping cart software is available in 43 languages and is used by over 250,000 merchants in 174 countries around the world.
”We leveraged our open widget API for integrating external services to develop the new Ecwid Store widget, which specifically targets users whose business needs exceed what our own shopping cart is designed for. Ecwid and CM4all Sites are a natural fit and complement each other ideally. Each a best-of-breed solution, they provide outstanding usability and enable even inexperienced users to create professional results with ease," says Robert Schovenberg, CEO of Content Management AG.
As of today, CM4all’s new Ecwid Store widget is available for CM4all’s global OEM partners. After an update, users of the CM4all Sites Full Version can add an Ecwid Store to their websites without any need to deal with code snippets. CM4all’s Ecwid Store widget is simply dragged and dropped onto the website. The look and feel of the Ecwid Store blends seamlessly with the website, as it adapts automatically to the existing website layout.
In order to activate the Ecwid Store widget, users can either enter their existing Ecwid Store ID or register a new Ecwid account directly through the CM4all widget. Thanks to the close cooperation between CM4all and Ecwid, all users who register via CM4all Sites receive a 20% discount on the price of Ecwid products.
Ecwid is natively designed to be integrated into existing websites and Facebook® profiles with ease. The full-featured cloud-based shopping cart and e-commerce solution offers a comprehensive control panel for one-stop management of products, orders, payments and shipping. And with plans ranging from free to premium shop solutions for unlimited products, website owners can find the right plan to meet their specific needs.
"We are excited about the integration with CM4all Sites. Providing CM-AG’s global customer base with an easy-to-use Ecwid Store widget gives us the chance to enable even more website owners to set up their own professional online shops and to benefit from the opportunities in the growing e-commerce arena," states Jim O'Hara, President of Ecwid.
