My intention has always been when I really get into selling merchandise to move over to a Shopify store. I just couldn't justify the cost for what I am selling currently. The store is fine if you have simple things to sell like products you make. I think for anyone serious about a large store to move on from this. Wix does a good job at giving the basics and even some advanced features but when you are a jack of all trades, you rarely master any one area. They do listen to feedback albeit slowly. Right now I am only using my follower base to sell to but in time, I will want a wider audience and need far more tools etc hence why moving up to Shopify. Wix used to do more to get third party apps but I am guessing that they killed some of that potential and companies just stopped trying to add their services to the store. Another concern is that Wix does not allow you to back up your store. They say you can create a duplicate (which you would have to remember to do every time you made a major change etc) but if their site or your site was ever targeted or whatever, you have no true backup. This could be a major issue for a serious store.
Another aspect is the email campaigns although look professional are the most limited there ever could be. You can't schedule out a campaign. This one factor that hinders good marketing and the lack of different templates etc is another source of issues.
We love Wix! It is so easy to use and feature rich. We recently changed the type of website we have to a standard one as we don't actually use the ecommerce features. I would say the only thing that we found when using it was that it is limited in the number of products one can actually list.
Otherwise, total thumbs up.
I personally have enjoyed using Wix. It is fairly intuitive and has a relatively high amount of customizability (depending on the amount of time you spend on it). The one thing that Wix could do much better on is the mobile site. Creating and editing the mobile version of your website will be a little difficult using Wix. However, I have not spoken to others who use square space and how it compares to developing a mobile version of your site--so my opinion is fairly limited.
I have had my site for about a year. There are a few areas I would love to see changes such as reports (can not view sales monthly, weekly etc) and my new visitors experience finding my prices. I would love it if Wix would help me with these changes but they just say they submitted a vote from me to consider the option to add as a new feature (never gets added). The site is fast to set up and easy to work, and affordable with a lot of great features for a free standing website (not a part of a marketplace). I like it for ecommerce (no fees except for normal 3rd party vendor fees and for add on apps.
I love W ix! It's easy to use, I can make updates or changes anytime I want so my site is always up to date. Their shoutouts are great for my email list. And their customer service is helpful and nice. I highly recommend them!!
It's good for building online presence, however if your main focus is e-commerce then it seems shopify is a better platform for that. Wix has some really beautiful templates and great features, so I would recommend it to someone just starting out a new website. I've used it for about 2 years, but haven't gotten very many sales from it unfortunately. I will be switching to shopify to see if I have more luck there.
I have been by Wix Since 2013.I love everything their. So i build my Websites ,with their tool. Seeing that i can have the Benifit also of having .all the nessary Tools needed for my online Present.
it's great. Super easy, friendly staff there's always somebody available to help me with any kind of questions and the add on options are fantastic we love using the social media links
I would recommend it. It is an easy store front option. It does take some getting use to as far as working with local order options that do not require shipping. Overall, I have been a Wix user for years and it's a great way to start for anyone whether temporary or long term.
I am not too familiar with what we are using, however, the Wix upgrade we have has no adds and we are able to do paypal and visa payments online. There are still a lot of optional extensions for additional costs that we do not use. What we have is very basic, so I guess for what we are using we are pleased.
I think Wix is a good platform and it's relatively easy to use. It really depends what you need to use it for.
I have found it a good fit for my business. There might be better/cheaper options out there but might need more expertise in website building.
It’s very simple and easy to set up, I am the former web designer for the company. The client never shared how the orders came through, but as far as set up and easy to make changes I would recommend it.
In a nutshell it’s great for simple stores and it initially served us well. I was disappointed with the lack of simple customization like being able to require a couple fields of info for delivery instructions. Also, make it clear that you can only set up one store and not have multiple stores for specific clients. The workaround is “collections”, but it made it clunky for what I needed. I’m deconstructing this part of my business and will not be maintaining an e-commerce store going forward and this is the only platform I’ve used. For basic stores wix is super user-friendly to set up and manage. I would just encourage thinking about the end goal and the possibility that wix could have too many limitation in a fast growth environment.
I do use Wix and love their e-commerce system. I pretty much love everything about Wix. It's very user friendly if you don't have mad website building skills. Very intuitive and if you do get stuck (rarely), their customer support is fast, friendly and very helpful.
I am actually taking down my site for the summer for a hiatus and will republish in the fall when I go back to work.
I have looked seriously at Shopify -being Canadian and all. But, A - it is more expensive, B- you have to pay for a template maybe and C - it is directed at online selling which I will not do.
I have been thinking of doing a click and collect website and shopify would be better for that. As it stands right now, I am only doing that thru my newsletters to my subscribers. I'm hoping that may entice more readers.
I am happy with WIX so far. I am in the process of doing another site and it has been easy.
I really love this site - my son handled the set up - and he just tells me what to do, they have new features, like emailing you when you get an order plus more - they also spruced up the site, so that the photos look twice as good.
I would recommend WIX, for sure!
For years, I used DreamWeaver. But eventually felt like I was falling-behind as far as cool new features that are EASY to implement and integrate. After a lot of research I decided to migrate to using WIX and it's been nothing but a pleasant experience for me thus far. I built my site about a year ago and honestly, I have no complaints. I would just encourage you to make-use of all their site/photo-optimizing tools and great tutorials! Some people don't and then wonder why their site isn't ranking high. I also read a lot of articles stating why one shouldn't use WIX, or Weebly, or Square......and I found none of their reasons to be true, for me, anyway....
The one and only thing I found tricky to figure out with WIX, was on the Products listings, when it comes to listing PRICES, if you offer a product with multiple options/prices, you start with the least expensive price, and then as you list higher costs for each larger size or different packaging, etc.....you don't list that higher price by itself, you have to list the DIFFERENCE between your base price and what the higher-priced item is.
Example: My least expensive item is a plain half bar of soap at $4.50. The next jump in price is for a labeled half bar of soap which is .50 cents higher. So rather than list the higher priced labeled bar as $5.00, I had to list it as .50...which the WIX cart automatically adds on to your beginning base (least expensive) price. And each subsequent higher price is again, the difference between it, and the original base price.
Anyway...it took me awhile and some teeth-gnashing to figure that one out. ::head slap::
We do like working w wix. We are a former internet entrepreneurs and had a large company (300+ employees) developing websites which we started back in 1998. My wife (creative director at the time) discovered wix when it first came onto the scene. She loved the GUI and the simplicity. Naturally when we sold our company and stared consulting small businesses and we embarked on determining the best solution to recommend, as well as work with for our own purposes. Wix, while not perfect is our perferrred solution. One thing that does drive me crazy is the issue of speed, I really wish wix would allow for bandwidth upgrades, page loading times are slow as your website becomes more mature ie. Traffic.
I am actually using shopify now.... I did use wix begore... but it often glitched and wouldn't process credit card payments.So no.. I dont recommend wix.
I recommend it because it is simple to use and quick to take in hand
I did like it but I didn't use it much as I didn't work real hard to get my business off the ground.
I would recommend it for short term because it's easy to use. But for long term, I would recommend worp press or html. Wix websites do not get good search results.
I would. It has been easy, cheap, and a very good product.
Yes we utilize the Wix platform and enjoy it thus far.
Yes, I'd recommend it.
It worked well for me because of the inventory control feature.
It was very effective and not costly.
it’s a great I wish it was a little cheaper which I have found but it offers good easy usable service
We like the Wix platform. We are not using all components but are keen to upgrade in the next few weeks. It is simple and useable.
it is unflexiable, does not support EU-data-rules and is too expensive. I would NOT recommend it.
m not very tech. savy, but yes, I think it is great and easy to understand.
In general i find this platform super comfortable , but haven't been using the store too much - Yet!
I highly recommend wix commerce! It’s very straight-forward and easy to use!
I would. Other than not having ‘after pay’ available., it is great. Easy to use.
we recommend WIX Commerce but do not like the high fees PayPal charges us.
we use wix it is a great starter platform but I am currently getting my site redone to WordPress that's what I recommend for serious business owners
We like Wix and would recommend it. Easy to use!
