Yola, provider of a free website builder and premium hosting for small businesses, has partnered with Ecwid, the creator of a platform-neutral drop-in store-builder widget. Now, Yola customers will be able to include an ecommerce solution on their websites.
The appeal of Yola's website builder has always been that small business owners could create a professional website with no prior technical or Web expertise. The company's president and CEO, Trever Harries-Jones, explains, "We believe building a website should be easy, but the end-result should also be full-featured and professional. Yola's ecommerce solution needed to be easy-to-use, but also robust."
And so, the company paired up with Ecwid to provide users with the opportunity to create an ecommerce store for their websites by setting it up in their Yola dashboards and then simply dropping it onto any of the pages on their website, whether it's brand new or already exists. Suddenly, the site now has a fully functional, all-in-one ecommerce solution to start selling online almost immediately.
Especially useful for businesses and customers alike, Ecwid's widget accepts payments from PayPal, Google Checkout, Authorize.net and all other major payment systems.
