This e-commerce prototype demonstrates the use of an e-commerce widget, called Ecwid, to set up an online shopping cart.


I wanted to find out if you can really add an online store to your social media site or blog in just 5 minutes, free.


I uploaded a few photos, filled in lots of forms, verified a few accounts and voila -instant E-Commerce! Amazing! I recommend using Ecwid.


I set up a shopping cart to sell sunglasses in a few hours. It took longer than 5 minutes, but that's to be expected. As a former e-commerce software interface designer and developer, I can especially appreciate the power of this awesome technology. The next step is to test the purchase process and see how Ecwid's back-end functions. Anyone want to buy some awesome sunglasses?
