Switch to Merchium. We’re Paying

Migrate from Shopify, Magento, or one of 60+ other platforms, and we’ll extend your subscription to cover the expenses
Switch to Merchium with Cart2Cart

We believe Merchium is a worthy competitor to Shopify, Magento, Bigcommerce, and other major ecommerce solutions. Merchium ships with features worth a dozen Shopify apps, a ready-to-use Facebook store, and a fancy admin panel that makes Magento look like ancient history.

If you already have an online store on a different shopping cart, switching to Merchium is a great opportunity to get a flexible platform while keeping your catalog, order history, and customer base.

We want to make switching to Merchium as simple as possible. This is why we’ve partnered with the leading shopping cart migration solution, Cart2Cart, and offer 100% compensation of the migration cost.

We offer 100% compensation of your migration cost

The idea is simple: you get as many free months as needed to fully cover your expenses.

If you paid $50 for the migration to Merchium Premium, we’ll grant you one subscription month, worth $64. If your plan of choice is Basic, you get two months, and so on.

Starting a migration is easy:

  1. create a Merchium store,
  2. register at Cart2Cart,
  3. follow the instructions in our support portal.

Migrate to Merchium Steps

Cart2Cart copies products, orders, and customer profiles to Merchium. The process is fully automatic and takes an hour tops. You’ll get your compensation within one business day after you pay for your migration.

We’ll be happy to answer any question about the migration. Feel free to contact us on the support portal or leave your questions right here in the comments.

Introducing New Plans

Merchium receives free plan, dumps disk space limitations, and changes plan conditions
Introducing New Merchium Plans


We’re updating Merchium subscription plans. The prices remain the same, but there are a few major changes:

  • Merchium how has a free plan for beginner merchants.
  • Gold and Platinum were replaced with Basic and Premium.
  • Disk space is not taken into account on all plans.
Merchium Pricing Table

Existing customers are free to switch to the new plans or remain on their current ones.

Free Plan

We are happy to announce that Merchium now has a free option for beginner merchants.

Free plan offers 1 storefront with 20 products. Maximum monthly revenue is limited by $1,000. Free plan includes all the necessary features to kickstart an online store:

  • product, category, and order management
  • 45 payment options and real-time shipping calculation
  • visual design editor
  • mobile-optimized storefront
  • free custom domain assignment
Free Plan >Basic & Premium replace Gold & Platinum

Our old Gold and Platinum plans were almost indistinguishable in the sense of features. Having two similar plans with one being twice as expensive as the other could confuse potential customers.

The new Basic and Premium plans are not only named more descriptively, they really differ in features. It is now easier to decide which one is the one for you.

Basic plan offers 1 storefront with 500 products, the ability to edit robots.txt, and the ability to turn your storefront into a catalog without the purchase option.

Basic Plan

Premium gives you 2 storefronts with 2000 products combined. Premium allows you to upload SSL certificates to HTTPS-protect your storefront on your own domain.

Premium Plan

No More Disk Space Limitations

For a merchant, it’s hard to understand how much really 16 GB is. Depending on product image quality and downloadable file sizes 16 GB means 10,000 or 100 products. With such plan limitations, it was hard for our customers to pick the right subscription and plan their business ahead.

So, we’ve decided to offer unlimited disk space on all plans. Instead, our new plans differ in catalog size and monthly revenue limits.

Store’s monthly revenue is calculated as total of all successful orders. Only the orders that decrease the number of products in stock are taken into account.

We hope our new plans will help Merchium reach more new customers. Please tell us what you think about Merchium’s new plans in the comments.

Merchium Set for Global Expansion with Australian Partner

Merchium Set for Global Expansion

Simtech and Spyre Digital announced a strategic partnership for further global expansion of Merchium.

Spyre Digital, a leading Sydney-based digital agency with a history in ecommerce, will exclusively manage Merchium’s sales and marketing operations in the Asia-Pacific.

In 2014, for the first time, the Asia-Pacific region surpassed North America for consumer online purchases, making it the largest regional ecommerce market in the world. Total sales are expected to reach $680 billion, increasing from $525 billion in 2014.

“We’re thrilled to start this partnership with Spyre. Merchium is a great product; we strongly believe in its success, even under the heavy competition in the industry. With Spyre’s marketing efforts and our technical expertise, Merchium has the potential to conquer a large share of the Asia-Pacific market,” said Vladimir Kalynyak, founder and CEO of Merchium.

“Given our experience and location, it makes perfect sense to establish an exclusive partnership that utilizes the strengths of both our companies. The opportunity exists for Merchium to lead the market as a hosted ecommerce solution, but we’re up against giants so we will need to use our positioning to compete aggressively,” said Matt Marchetta, Managing Director of Spyre Digital.

Merchium combines the power of CS-Cart with the ease and speed of cloud software. The first initiative of the alliance will be the release of the Partner Program, which is expected to launch in the next 2 weeks. Partners are encouraged to join the program and develop their own Merchium themes and apps, and share in the revenue.

Google’s Mobile Search Update



For a number of years now, Google has been encouraging webmasters to move towards mobile responsive website development, in accordance with growing mobile users and mobile search.

Last week, Google announced that some important changes were coming to their search algorithm to include more mobile-friendly results. They’ve stated that “…users will find it easier to get relevant, high-quality search results that are optimized for their devices.”

If you would like to know if your website is mobile friendly, you can use Google’s own Mobile-Friendly Test tool.

If you know that your website is mobile friendly, you can use your Webmaster Tools account to check for mobile usability issues across your site, using the Mobile Usability Report.

Merchium is already a mobile-friendly platform, and as a cloud based solution, our customers have the benefit of automatic upgrades which we perform to keep in-line with emerging technologies and improvements.

Merchium Marketplace Opens for Partners


The Merchium Marketplace is where merchants will buy themes and apps for their stores. Today, we have great news for developers and designers who want to sell their work via the Marketplace and to benefit from Merchium’s growth.

The Merchium Marketplace is now open for partners. If you want to sell apps and themes on the Marketplace, email us at partners@merchium.com and we’ll send you a personal invitation to join a secret registration page.

The Marketplace is currently running behind a curtain; only our team and the partners have access to the site. Once the Marketplace has enough apps and themes, we’ll open it to the public.

Why Become a Partner

As our partner, you will get 80% of the profits from every app and 70% of the profits from every theme you create and sell through the Marketplace. To withdraw funds, you’ll need only a PayPal account.

Marketplace Profit Share

By entering the Marketplace now, you are putting your apps and themes in a privileged position: when the Marketplace opens to merchants, your work will be the first thing they see. You’ll benefit from a market with a low concurrency that is under growing demand.

What a Partner Does

There are two roles that a partner can fulfill: theme designer or app developer.

Theme designers use Merchium’s built-in editors to create themes for Merchium storefronts. Being a theme designer requires CSS knowledge and visual design skills. No programming or template code editing is involved. Learn more about creating themes for Merchium in the docs.

App developers contribute to Merchium by adding payment, shipping, and helpdesk services, marketing tools, and other useful things. You can develop apps for Merchium using any programming language. Please refer to the Merchium API docs and the official app developer guide to learn more.

How to Join

Email us at partners@merchium.com to gain access to the Marketplace.

Read the docs to learn how to create apps and themes for Merchium.

If you have any questions during development, feel free to ask our team via the developer forum (to log in, create a free Merchium account).

We’re happy to answer any questions about the partnership in the comments section.

Meet the New Merchium

Meet the New Merchium


We are so thrilled to make this announcement: Merchium is back and ready to deliver feature-rich, embeddable, and affordable online stores. You are welcome to start your own online store in just a few seconds right now.

So what happened?

We suspended the Merchium project back in July 2014, when it was still in beta. This was not an easy decision, but we just had to focus on a different priority at the time.

Even though we have closed our service for new users and the project was publicly frozen, we never stopped improving it behind the scenes.

Today, we are proud to introduce you to the new and improved Merchium, with a faster development cycle, fortnightly updates, new features, and without the beta badge.

What’s new

Firstly, Merchium is out of beta. This means that our team is fully dedicated to provide the level of security, performance, and stability required for production software.

Merchium Is No More Beta

Secondly, we have updated our pricing and plans. For example, our most affordable plan includes unlimited products, unlimited traffic, and unlimited transactions with 0 % transaction fee.

Merchium Gold Features

Thirdly, Merchium will soon have the most generous affiliate program in the industry. If you create ecommerce projects to your clients and refer them to Merchium, you will earn up to 40% monthly revenue share. Contact us at affiliates@merchium.com to be the first to join our affiliate program.

Merchium Affiliate Program, Coming Soon

Lastly, we plan to open the Merchium Marketplace for our partners this year, together with the detailed developer docs and complete API for third-party integrations. To get early access to Merchium Marketplace, contact us at partners@merchium.com.

Merchium Marketplace, Coming Soon

We will share more information about great Merchium features with you later in this blog. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to get all the hot updates.

We are always happy to hear from you in our support portal.
