  1. Hey team! This is a completely free website option for beginners. Google Sites is 100% free, you do not need to pay for a domain and website hosting. This is a great place to start your web design journey. If you have any questions, add them down below!

  2. Great tutorial, thanks so much for this! The webiste looks professional, thnx for presenting different features, I will definitely use them on my page

  3. I am new to this and I am trying to edit my site but when I upload a picture I can't can't see it after uploading it. The picture disappears, I can only see it when I preview it… what do I do?

  4. Hello Stewart, I have an issue went I place a picture, it almost shows a windowshade collapsable screen but not the picture. Can you assist in fixing this issue form me. Can I send you a screenshot of the image so you can see it better.

  5. Great tutorial many thanks – unless I am wrong, there is one major flaw with Free Ecwid. Create 10 items but if you've only got 2 of each, you potentially can sell 50 of each (or more). You can "SELL" stuff you have not got??!! Am I wrong?
