If you’re here, you have probably already heard of Wix, but in case you haven’t, here’s a rundown.
To make it brief, Wix is a page builder. Whether you are considering starting a blog, an online website for your agency, or an e-commerce store, then Wix has a solution for you.
You can choose from hundreds of templates, or choose to design and customize your page totally from scratch. Either way, Wix is a pretty good software to go for, especially if you are a smaller business looking for a simple-to-use page builder.
Founded in 2006, the company has gained quite the reputation. At present, there are around know of 4,565,423 live websites built by Wix! As an online business owner, you’ll learn that following the beaten path is usually a quicker way to profits than carving out your own path.
Currently, Wix offers 4 plans, including a FREE one that you may want to use for learning and getting used to the platform.
The next popular plan is called Combo, and it’s billed £8 per month or £72 yearly. This plan will offer you the ability to navigate ad-free, and also use your own domain.
The next available options, Unlimited and Business Basic are priced at £11 and £16 per month. They are recommended for larger projects and established businesses, and offer features as 10GB storage, and the ability to sell online.
Compared with other website and funnel builders that can charge 10 times those rates, Wix is a super affordable software even when you need some of the more advanced features!

Wix app store offers a range of useful apps for dropshipping, that you can use mainly for sourcing products and finding suppliers. Let’s take a closer look at some of them:
There are numerous debates going on the internet, whether you should use Wix or Shopify for your dropshipping business.
What we would suggest is to try both of them, either by using Wix’s free plan, or Shopify’s free trial. Give them both a try and see which one suits your business better. We will put together some of the main key points for you, and maybe this can help you decide faster.
How easy are they to use?
Both Wix and Shopify will definitely claim themselves as the easiest to use. However, by analyzing the complexity of the stores they both build, we can definitely claim that Wix is easier to use.
Themes – Both of these page builders will provide you different themes that you can choose from for your online store.
While Shopify offers around 60 themes including the paid ones, Wix offers 60 free templates. However, if you are focusing on e-commerce only, it could be said that Shopify’s themes are more on point and focused in this sense.
Payment options – Both Shopify and Wix will allow you the basic payment methods such as (Stripe, PayPal). However, a minus in this point for Wix would be that it does not support as of yet Google Pay or Apple Pay, nor having multiple currencies.
Taxes – In this case, we can not argue in favor of one or the other, as both Shopify and Wix will easily allow you to add or disable taxes, or even set them according to different regions.
We do believe that Wix is the way to go when creating a dropshipping store. There will always be pros and cons regarding any software you may use though, that’s why we would like to once again advise you to take some time to discover before going Live and find out which option suits your business best!
