It was quite the week last week! Ecommerce came out of Beta and introduced itself to the world. 👏 Congratulations to the team at Webflow for getting this done. Right out of the gate it is a strong contender for what they're calling Brand Ecommerce. I have no doubts that feature parity with competitors will be surpassed especially with a dedicated internal team for Ecommerce. There are almost literally a ton of videos, articles, and guides to help get you started. Make sure to check out the Webflow University too.
Not as many showcase sites this week, but the ones that made this list are really great. Tons of visual range shown here. Proves that Webflow as a tool truly allows designers to express themselves.
We've got the usual handful of tuts shown off by WebDev For You, then Charli Marie wraps up her series detailing setting up a Webflow Ecommerce store, and also a mixed-bag of tricks from some of our other friends. Udesly put out two new widgets specifically for Webflow for animating SVGs and counters.
Rounding out our weekly digest is Nelson appearing on the Deep Dive Podcast.
Here's some content from Webflow's official channels.
This is brand-first commerce. This is Webflow Ecommerce.
