A new partnership between code-free website creator Webydo and ecommerce widget provider Ecwid is helping designers add retail features to their sites with just a few clicks.

Through the partnership, Webydo users can add an Ecwid-powered online store to their websites. Not only can the ecommerce capabilities be added to a Webydo site quickly, but Ecwid is also available in 45 languages and integrates with major payment gateways.

"Ecwid and Webydo are transforming the way the web is created with powerful tools and stunning design options," said Shmulik Grizim, Webydo's Co-Founder and CEO. "Through this partnership, professional designers can now use the best ecommerce solution on the market within Webydo's professional web creation platform, enjoying total creative freedom and independence in creating custom designed business websites with sophisticated online stores."

According to a recent Webydo survey that analyzed more than 30,000 new websites created on the Webydo platform, service industries like design and Web services created more than 12 percent of new business websites. That said, product driven industries like fashion and retail were also a major contributor - making up 11 percent of new business websites.

"Because Ecwid is a full-featured storefront solution, we're a good match for Webydo's professional web and graphic designers," says Jim O'Hara, president of Ecwid, Inc. "Our simple, drop-in installation also integrates beautifully with Webydo's platform. We look forward to providing its global user base with a comprehensive ecommerce functionality."
