For the purpose of deploying a great looking site fast and free you cant do better than this!

Pros

Using the prompt and suggestions for a new site, WIX has a very solid product that is fantastic for any non tech savvy person. As a professional developer I work with industry leading software every day, and this is a great offering for people needing good quality without the custom needs of larger clients

Cons

Cant really throw any stones. If the question is about the free product particularly...then there isnt a downside to the tools, as they are robust and easy to use. The results are clean and modern and nothing shy of a great deal at the rate of no invested cash.

Reasons for Choosing Wix

Again this is usually a client choice but I enjoy using it when it is their requested solution. I no longer push to get clients on another platform, as the WIX tools are fine for most things needed. I have yet to have a real gripe and usual result is I push the clients to get a paid account as my only advice for changing the path.

Reasons for Switching to Wix

Not switch really, just used this instead to fulfill a client request usually. While I primarily work in WordPress or CMS and Custom Coding, when I do WIX sites for clients it is technically instead of WP

Simple, Easy, fantastic price

Wix couldn't be simpler and easier to use. It is so affordable, so simple, and yet incredibly powerful. I had no idea how easy it was going to be when I was getting started, but now I'm a huge fan, and probably will be for life.

Pros

The ease of use. It was so simple to set up and build a website, I had one online in a matter of 2 hours. On top of that, it was so affordable, that I had paid for 3 years of hosting, that cost me less than it would cost to have someone build a site, let alone host for 3 years. In other words, it's saved me thousands of dollars.

Cons

Truthfully, I don't have any major complaints yet, because it's doing everything I've needed it to do. Perhaps I could say, it seems so feature rich that I could never fully tap into all of its powerful capabilities. The other downside might be down the road, if ever I needed to export my website to a different host, that might cause a few hiccups, but I'm locked in for another couple of years, so it's not a worry presently.

Reasons for Choosing Wix

Ease of use, cost and a glowing testimonial from a fellow entrepreneur.

Reasons for Switching to Wix

Because I wanted something faster, easier and less expensive.

Bad for e-commerce. Good for simple marketing websites.

For years we've built websites for clients (and ourselves) on Wix and mostly have liked it as an easy-to-use website builder. It's only now that we tried to set up an e-commerce store and process payments that I've come to realize that there is no support, no follow-up and no one really cares if your money is sitting in their bank account instead of yours. It's deeply soured me on the whole company - although it's probably just that their e-commerce/payments group is incompetent. Anyway - save yourself a lot of stress and don't use Wix Payments. We set up a store for a client on Shopify and while it's more expensive we've had no issues like this and gotten prompt support for the only payment issue we ever had there.

Pros

Visual design interface is simple to learn, has good templates, is flexible and easy to design a great looking page in. Far more design flexibility than Squarespace. Also like that forms, pop-ups and other items like that which cost extra in Shopify are free in Wix. A great platform for businesses that need an informational website.

Cons

Wix Payments is a nightmare. I set up an ecommerce store for one business in Wix where we'd already built a brochure site and after getting over $9k in credit card transactions Wix is unable (a month and a half later) to send the money to the bank. Support is non-existent. I've explained the situation to 6 different people, never gotten a phone call with anyone and the money is still in Wix instead of transferred. The ecommerce store itself is pretty limited too. All in all I deeply regret not using Shopify or Big Commerce - or at the very least setting up my own payment gateway through Stripe/Square instead of trusting Wix with payments.

Reasons for Choosing Wix

As a website builder Wix and Tilda are the best - easy for no-code sites and flexible enough to allow hard-coding of specialized features if needed. Of the two, Wix has a better marketplace of plug-ins. As an e-commerce platform we tried Wix because the client's marketing site was already built there - but it turns out is not suitable for e-commerce compared to Shopify or BigCommerce.

Wix is a Journey

It has been beneficial having Wix to be a nice platform to advertise my business and market. It is a decent program to you however I just wish that it was better. And if you’re going to charge as much to charge at least have features in applications that actually work.

Pros

I like that the Wix is easy to use after an experienced person walks you through how to use the system. I didn’t find it a bit challenging at first with utilizing the features in finding out what I needed in the system to help me make the website best for our businesses needs. It did take about two months for me to really get well accustomed to using wicks his features that I need to use on a regular basis. However there are some features that we’re not available immediately that my business does need to use so I ended up having to purchase another program in order to get what I needed out of it which is more costly in the long run. Because they do not have forms that function well for my schools needs, I had to make more of an investment. It also said that the zoom feature would now work well with wicks. I still have to screenshot a new code every week and send it to our clients for our weekly class for a group sessions.

Cons

Zoom integration sucks. There are a lot of things that businesses need to be able to do to be functional and a lot of those things were not available on WIX. It would be nice for weeks to be a lot easier to use even for a new person learning how to use the system. I think that they charge a bit much for utilizing weeks considering all that Wix does not offer and you have to go out of pocket to purchase and do additional work to get what you need.

Reasons for Choosing Wix

I wanted to test it out and see how well it would work. I also noticed that a lot of website designer’s on five or had a lot more experience on Wix website as opposed to some other websites

Great for personal portfolio site - very happy!

I've been using Wix for a long time and have been very happy with the software. I use the software as my primary web solution to build and host my personal portfolio. While I am a writer and creative director, I'm not a web designer so I find the templates a helpful starting point in my design process. They have improved the gallery solution over the years to host images but still need a little work. Setting up personal domains and URLs is easy with WIX and as far as price point goes, it's not terribly expensive although I have to admit that I didn't compare it to all the other solutions. One last thing, Wix also offers many abilities to build a blog and focus on SEO that I have not made the most of yet but will be doing so in the future. Overall, really good software.

Pros

My favorite thing about WIX is that there is infinite freedom to create whatever you want. It's amazing really. A no-code solution that empowered me to create the personal portfolio I always wanted. It came out great and I am really thankful WIX was the software that helped me do it.

Cons

The gallery solution for hosting and displaying images needs some work. At first glance, there are many options to use for a personal portfolio, but I quickly found that they don't always format correctly. If there was a way to fix this I would be thrilled!

Reasons for Choosing Wix

I've been a user of Wix for a long time and when I wanted to update my portfolio I considered using Squarespace. However, once I realized that Squarespace didn't permit the freedom WIX did for creating what I wanted, due to column restrictions, I quickly shifted back to WIX and I'm really happy that I did.
