SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) February 02, 2016
Ecwid, the leading commerce platform that enables anyone to sell easily on any website, today announced its Jumpstart Reseller Program. Ecwid’s newest partner program is the first and only to enable agencies, developers and all web professionals to offer a powerful and flexible e-commerce solution to small businesses using their own branding, pricing and billing.
The Jumpstart Reseller Program removes the costs and technical barriers associated with developing their own e-commerce product, making it possible for agencies, designers, consultants and developers to offer world-class, private-branded e-commerce compatible with any web presence - something that previously was impossible to consider. These businesses now are able to sell their e-commerce solution under their own brand, at their preferred price and with their own billing, controlling the customer relationship from start to finish.
Ecwid’s innovative partner program introduces yet another market-leading service that significantly extends its partners’ core value propositions. In response to market demand, Ecwid’s Jumpstart program targets web agencies, developers and other web professionals. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics counts nearly 150,000 web developers in the U.S. alone, with an estimate of more than 750,000 developers worldwide. Further, according to IBISWorld, the U.S. market for web design services is $24 billion, and the introduction of the Jumpstart program now gives developers a best-in-class, branded e-commerce solution to add to their overall service mix for their small business customers.
"Web agencies and developers are the backbone of our industry in terms of helping small businesses get online successfully,” says Jim O’Hara, president of Ecwid “These partners have deep relationships with business owners, and want to maintain end to end control of the services they provide, not just relinquish their valuable customers to third parties in return for a modest referral fee. The Jumpstart Reseller Program delivers the first and only private-label e-commerce solution built for web professionals of all types and sizes, enabling them to retain their own branding, pricing and billing and preserve the close bond they have built with their small business customers.
The new Jumpstart program provides partners with the following features:
- Social commerce, including the Facebook store app
- White-label branding and logos
- Control of end user pricing
- Control of end user billing
- Comprehensive partner support provided by Ecwid
- A dashboard to manage all stores from one place
- Control of end to end customer relationship
Carolina Fuguet, CEO of 5/12 Studio, is an existing Ecwid partner and has worked with more than 75 small business customers, helping them set up and launch online stores. With a goal to offer her own branded stores to all clients, Carolina joined the Ecwid Jumpstart program to optimize the marketability of her clients' businesses. "Ecwid always has been part of my toolbox ...even before I started my own business. The easy-to-maneuver shopping cart has myriad features that far surpass the competition, and it would be impossible to achieve such customer retention and financial success without the help of Ecwid. With the flexibility that the Jumpstart program provides, I now have my own e-commerce platform which makes my company's tools even more robust for my clients, ultimately giving my business the edge it needs and improving the bottom line for my customers and me alike."
