Hey all – jumping in here to provide a little more perspective from the product team’s perspective.
First, I just want to say that we appreciate candid feedback, and are happy to have channels like this (and the Wishlist) where we can discuss these responses with you all.
Better understanding your needs is the only way we are going to be able to keep pushing Webflow forward.
And there is no better way for us to learn more about how we can provide you the best solutions possible – your most significant needs, biggest pain points, etc. – than to give you something to actually use.
Which is what this Beta is all about. As @brjohnson eloquently put:
Point being, this is only the beginning. We’re starting with where we excel (enabling complete design control without code) and expanding from there. That means there is a lot to come on the store owner/management side of the platform.
And instead of waiting until we have everything that other platforms offer to give you an ecommerce product, we’re giving you the tools to get started, with the promise that we’ll be continually releasing new features in the weeks, months, and years to come.
In opening up Ecommerce to the Webflow community now, we are hoping that as you all test, try, and actually use it, you will continue to provide us valuable feedback and insights – here and in the Wishlist – that will actually help us prioritize and add all of the additional features and functionality you need.
Which is exactly what this thread is – you helping us learn about how we can make Webflow Ecommerce better, based on your early experience with this Beta release. And I, for one, am very happy that we are getting to have these conversations, and get this information now, rather than months or years later. So thank you!
And a couple of quick notes on some of the other details mentioned:

@jdesign – Pagination truly is coming
