Elliot is a great new E-commerce platform that allows anyone to build a super cool, innovative store, shop, brand or community channel for selling just about anything under the sun. (as of this writing in January of 2020 - you CAN sell digital downloads on Elliot, although I would argue, and as I cover in this short video series......I do think this is an area that needs a bit of improvement both in user and admin level experience)
But if you're looking to build a multi vendor marketplace platform (like we are doing with MindfulMarketplace.com) Elliot makes it super simple, and super sexy to quickly add new brands to your store - and to empower your partners to publish products - and get paid (instantly, via Stripe) without plugins, problems or the perpetual pain that Wordpress and other similar solutions foist on store owners. (including Shopify - which requires external premium apps to accomplish the same end objective)
Check out Elliot, here. It's an amazing alternative to Shopify, Bigcommerce and even platforms like Squarespace, who are also gaining traction in the E-commerce space - but that aren't nearly as cool and creative as Elliot is already....and by dint of the super speed that they are launching USEFUL new features and functionality - all signs suggest it's going to continue to get better and better in the weeks and months to come.
