Detailed Review

Jimdo is a user-friendly, e-commerce oriented site builder that builds an online shop without much efforts and cost. With the diverse e-commerce features supporting over 12 languages, Jimdo is a powerful builder to satisfy your needs with a global touch.

Different Packages

Three plans are on offer: Free, Pro, and Business. The Free plan offers varied designs, 500MB storage, SEO without meta tags, XML sitemap, store module with 5 items and PayPal support, password protection, blog, guestbook, widgets, photo galleries, downloads, RSS, and flash additions.

For freelancers and creative bloggers, the Pro plan includes all the features of the Free plan along with one own domain, 10GB e-mail account, pro designs, 5GB storage, meta tags, 15 store items, newsletter option, statistics, and logo.

The Business plan is truly for businesses with online store with the enhanced Pro feature such as two domains, 20 email accounts each of 10 GB, unlimited storage, fasted support, robot meta tags, unlimited store items, and discount code facility.

Features

This website builder is very traditional but you can expect some of the coolest but rarest features. Recently, it has come up with great design layouts with exciting features such as full background slideshows with different visual effects and background video for uploading and playing a video in the site’s background. These additions are hardly seen amongst the other Web site builders.  

The Interface

It is easy to use and navigate with a drag & drop design that allows adding and deleting elements very quickly. However, some unwanted changes such as content shift can occur while switching from one layout to another. For the experienced users, the interface can give you access to the CSS and HTML editor for customizing the site totally. Unlike other builders, Jimdo facilitates a higher level of style customization.  

The E-Commerce Module

Interestingly, the functionality of this module is equivalent to that of the costly Internet stores. Via this module, you get order confirmation e-mails, order processing ease, Quick Response code generator to associate offline sales to the site, and safety tools like password protection.  

Mobile Support and SEO

The interface also has a mobile editor that creates a mobile version of the desktop-sized site. You can even edit the CSS code for adding a unique style to your mobile site. There is also a special Mobile Express Page or a landing page that allows visitors to find vital site information. This is automatically at its best with the Business plan! For a JimdoPro or JimdoBusiness user, further optimization is possible by including meta tags for each page.

Conclusion

Jimdo is perfect for businesses of small and medium scales due to its e-commerce features that do a commendable job. In case of a heavy e-commerce site, it would be wise to shift to Jimdo for lightweight satisfactory performance. Apart from that, Jimdo is still a good choice for having an appealing corporate look.
