I’ve been using Ecwid as a great platform to sell my thousands of items for several months now.
The platform is nicely designed and an excellent place to display the products quickly and it has an easy operating platform.
There is one very important thing that doesn’t work. That is the individual findability of the products.
They are not googleable. So they can’t be found through the search engine.
With the use of Rapidweaver and Ecwid as Stack, the categories of the Rapidweaver pages can only be found. In fact every Rapidweaver page ends up high up in the Googleranking, single products (Ecwid) cannot be found without Rapidweaver.
That hurts anyway because it costs € 100,- per month.
I have to say that they have a very good emergency service.
The URLs made by Ecwid are downright bad and not clean like the urls made by Rapidweaver.
For a fee I had a program made for the server, which I don’t think works perfectly yet.
It’s a pity that Rapidcart Pro can’t handle a large number of articles in the website.
Downloading the products and shopping basket took 25 seconds per page and that doesn’t eat up any customers. With the old Rapidcart I was able to update and modify a website every time in the past, unfortunately this is no longer possible.
The makers of Rapidcart Pro might want to have a look at how to make that combination with the old Rapidcart and the new Rapidcart pro version (Foreground).
Maybe this will get experts thinking.
Everything should be searchable by search engines like google unless you specifically Direct the search engines not to index a page. You might not rank as well as you like but the search engines should index the items.
Do you have an example of what you’re seeing not being indexed?
There’s often a lot (thousands) of products competing for particular search phases, and a lot of factors affect SERP ranking.
My understanding is that you can enable “SEO friendly URLs” for free. You didn’t mention the “program” you purchased.
At first I made a RapidCart Pro page with filled over 3500 products when I exported to the server.
The PHP script couldn’t show pages or produts in a couple of seconds, it needed more than 25seconds to download the pages.
I’m not completely understanding the issue with Rapidcart Pro, but as a longtime user of it on many sites, some with thousands of SKU’s, I’ve never noticed a speed issue and the URL’s are plenty SEO friendly.
agree… have been using RC Pro for years … have a few hundred products and no issues loading pages quickly… RC Pro fills a huge gap in the market for people who don’t want or cant afford the high monthly costs of Ecwid/Cartloom etc I know there are free/lower priced options but not if you have many products) so please @rob keep RC Pro active and keep developing it because its a great product!
