Wix eCommmerce is one of the UK’s most user-friendly online store platforms for small businesses. It’s super-easy to get started (maybe even fun), gives you loads of options to tailor your site, and the online store can be optimised to rank well in search engines (even with no SEO experience).
If you’ve never built a website before, we recommend the Wix ADI builder which is the easiest way to create a site. For full flexibility over design, Wix Editor is the way to go.
Large inventories can be problematic since you don’t get email notifications when stock is running low. There are other ecommerce platforms with more advanced stock management tools, but Wix works fine if you can keep an eye on sales every day or pay for an extra integration.
Customer support is generally not rated highly, so problems may be met with a lengthy resolution process – that is, unless you opt for VIP support on the most expensive plan.
The checkout includes a good selection of payment methods with competitive rates. It’s only really large companies with a high sales volume that can get lower rates with other payment processors.
Although there’s a free Wix plan, selling online does require a Wix Business subscription. However, this is well worth the money considering it includes web hosting, an integrated payment system and a platform allowing anyone to build a full-fledged online store with confidence.
