Best Customer Service
I switched from Wordpress to WiX when I discovered them in 2011 or thereabouts. I’ve seen WiX grow with their services, offerings, technology and more...
! Almost every one of my customers moved their websites to WiX! Yes, I designed their websites. Support? In the beginning it wasn’t the best! Now, they’re by far the absolute best! Friendly, patient and very helpful. I’m glad I’m with WiX!

Awful awful customer service
Wix After months of designing this website - I went live in November 2021. My account was fine. I never had any issues. People were quick to call...
me and offer me their services from wix - a social platform about selling and sponsoring ads etc. i was always told my website my beautiful and a job well done. Fast forward. I had hundreds of orders in 3 days. I was hosting a fundraiser for a friend who has breast cancer at 31, who’s pregnant with their third child, so I was doing something Nice. Unbeknownst and to my surprise - I got an email stating that my account was frozen due to unusual activity. That’s cool I guess. Safety first. But instead of calling me to verify these orders - they send me an email stating I won’t receive my payouts. MY CUSTOMERS PAYMENTS. oh, they will still accept payments on my site - but not give me the money. So. In order for me to verify my account and get my money - that is actually proceeds to this family - I must do a bunch of things. Privacy policy Terms and conditions Shipping and return policy’s My physical address Contact info All names Upload docs Literally everything. Which is fine! But. Why wasn’t that all “mandatory” before I started selling online? Before any payments were to be made; that should have been a requirement. But now all of a sudden since I had high sales- my account won’t release funds to my bank. Now here we are. My TAT is 10-15 biz days. Now what? This family needs their raised donations. My customers want their shirts that I can’t order because I don’t have the thousands of dollars just laying around to order them and now my name, my business, and my livelihood is on the line. Days later the issue still isn’t resolved. Nor can I actually reach anyone! Nor is there a customer service phone number to even reach a human. So. I do not recommend wix. Their customer service is not what it should be. This is appalling. It’s unethical. And I will be switching and letting folks know that wix is not a place to do their business with.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which is better, Wix or WordPress?

If you have some coding knowledge and feel confident in your tech skills, WordPress is better for you. However, if you aren’t tech-savvy and are looking for a platform that is beginner-friendly, easy to use, and offers direct expert support, then Wix is the better option for you.

What is the difference between Wix and WordPress?

Wix is a website builder that offers an all-in-one solution to its users, which includes a builder, editor, web hosting, a domain name, and everything you need to create and manage a website online. On the other hand, WordPress is an open-source Content Management System that helps users create a website. However, WordPress does not offer web hosting, a domain name, or security features, so you will have to buy those yourself.

How much does it cost to build a website with Wix?

Technically, you can build an entire website with Wix for free. Wix offers a free plan which you can get to create your website, but the free plan comes with certain limitations, so if you want to create a professional website, it is not the best option. Wix’s premium plans start at $4.50/month and go up to $35/month (paid annually). Also, if you choose to pay monthly, the prices are slightly higher, and you can also get Wix’s Enterprise plan which starts at $500/month.

How much does it cost to build a website with WordPress?

The cost of building a website with WordPress varies based on the price of your hosting plan, a domain name which usually costs about $12 a year, and other factors like paid themes and additional premium plugins, so you will initially need to invest around $200 if you want to build a robust and content-driven website.
