Starting e-commerce with Readymag
Begin by adding an E-commerce widget using the + sign in the lower-left corner.
How the widget works
The E-commerce widget consists of two parts: a product card and a cart. When your customer puts products into their cart, the number on the Cart button changes to match the number of added products. To view everything they’ve added, your customers can click directly on the Cart button. After that, the cart will open on the right side of the project.
Stripe and Ecwid
When adding the widget to your layout, you will be prompted to select the vendor you prefer to use: Stripe or Ecwid. Both are supported in all our paid plans without any additional fees, but typical Stripe and Ecwid regulations still apply.
When you choose between Stripe and Ecwid, consider the following:
- Stripe is currently supported in 42 countries. Check the list here.
Ecwid can be used worldwide.
- Ecwid offers different payment options for different countries (more details). With Stripe, you can only accept payments from debit and credit cards.
- Don’t forget to compare pricing for Stripe and Ecwid.
To create an online store with Readymag, you need to enable an SSL certificate in the Domain tab of your project settings. Note this must be done by the project creator: collaborators are not able to activate the E-commerce widget.
If you’ve already connected Stripe or Ecwid to your project, but want to switch, open the list of widgets and delete the Cart button. Next, add a new E-commerce widget. The Cart button will appear again, and you will be able to connect to your preferred vendor.
