We recommend using the E-commerce widget for smaller shops that sell up to ten products. Readymag doesn’t offer a CMS, so managing larger stores can be challenging and better executed by using third-party tools.
Stripe doesn't work in exported projects. If you plan to move the project to another hosting, use Ecwid as an e-commerce vendor.
With the help of our E-commerce widget, you can sell products directly from your Readymag project.
When adding the widget to your layout, you will be prompted to select the vendor you would like 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. You can find more information about their pricing here:
The following information is meant to help you select between Stripe and Ecwid. Please note: we listed only those features that are supported in Readymag projects. They don’t cover the full Ecwid or Stripe functionality:

The E-commerce widget only works in projects with an SSL certificate, which are enabled automatically. If you have any problems, please check this article.
Collaborators cannot establish a connection to Stripe or Ecwid 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.
If you click on Stripe or Ecwid and see a message that the connection cannot be established, please take the following steps.
First, check whether Readymag is authorized in your Stripe account: https://dashboard.stripe.com/account/applications. If this doesn’t help, try reconnecting Stripe to your e-commerce project.
Make sure that you have an active paid subscription with Ecwid. Next, check whether Readymag is shown in the My Apps section of your Ecwid account. If this doesn’t help, try reconnecting Ecwid to your project.
