Wix Pricing: An In-Depth Look at the Website Builder’s Free & Premium Plans

By Daniel ClintonDaniel Clinton

Wix

Wix is arguably the best do-it-yourself website builder  on the market. We rate it first among all website builders because of its array of attractive templates , ease-of-use, cutting edge innovation and value for money. Wix offers a number of different plans at varying prices, which we’ll explore to help you find the best plan for your needs. There is a free plan, and 5 premium plans, which increase in price as they add more features and functionality.

Wix Free Plan

All it takes to start building a website with Wix is a username and password. You don’t have to pay a dollar to choose a template and customize it with Wix’s drag-and-drop editor, or let Wix’s Artificial Design Intelligence (ADI) build your website for you in minutes.

However, there are a couple of big drawbacks to a free Wix site that make spending a little money on a premium plan a necessity.

With a free Wix website, you don’t have your own unique site address, such as www.mysite.com, but rather, you will have a Wix URL like, http://username.wixsite.com/mysite. In addition, a free Wix website will feature advertisements for Wix on your homepage.

The free plan is essentially an unlimited free trial in which you can design a site and become familiar with some of Wix’s features. However, it is not a realistic long-term solution for someone who wants a serious personal or business website.

The Combo Plan

With the Combo Plan, the Wix ads are removed from your site and you get your own free domain for a year. The plan costs $11 per month for a yearly subscription.
What do you get for that price? Your site will run with 2GB of bandwidth, 3GB storage, and you’ll get 30 video minutes for your site. 
Probably goes without saying that you’ll also be able to use the rich, artfully-crafted Wix templates and the easy-to-use drag and drop interface will make web design a cinch, really. 

The Unlimited Plan

Wix's most popular plan is the Unlimited Plan, which is geared toward entrepreneurs and freelancers. As the plan's name suggests, it comes with unlimited bandwidth and 10GB of storage.

Wix Unlimited Plans have multiple subscriptions

The Unlimited Plan costs $14 per month for an annual subscription. You will receive a free domain for 1 year, $300 in ad vouchers for Google, a form builder app ($48 value) to collect leads or put any other type of form on a website, and a site booster app ($60 value) which helps sites get found on search engines such as Google. 

The Ecommerce Plan

Businesses that want to sell physical or digital products online will have to sign up for one of Wix’s business or Ecommerce plans. The plans come with unlimited bandwidth and 20-50GB of storage to ensure that you will have plenty of space to upload pictures of your merchandise.

There are 3 Ecommerce plans—Business Basic, Business Unlimited, and Business VIP, which cost $20, $25, and $35 per month, respectively. 

Of course, the biggest advantage of the Ecommerce Plan is the shopping cart it includes to sell goods online and accept payments. The Ecommerce Plan allows your customers to buy multiple products, it gives you tools to track inventory, and discount coupon codes for your customers. You can also offer variations on an individual product, such as different sizes and colors. The shopping cart features shipping and tax rules to calculate the total price for your customers.

The VIP Plan

Wix's top tier plan, the VIP plan, gives you everything that you get with the Ecommerce Plan and more. You get unlimited bandwidth and 20GB storage, no Wix ads, a shopping cart to sell products online, 10 email campaigns per month and a professional site review.

The plan is $24.50 a month for an annual subscription, $23 per month for a 2-year subscription, and $30 a month on a month-to-month basis. monthly subscriptions do not include a free domain for 1 year, $75 in ad vouchers, the form builder app, or the site builder app.

Wix Premium plans include extra features

This is a good option for those that want to sell goods online who require more bandwidth than the Ecommerce Plan offers. In addition, the email marketing feature that is included in the VIP plan is a valuable tool if you're looking to grow your business. Unlike with the Ecommerce Plan, the VIP Plan also allows you to maximize your site's effectiveness with the professional site review, in which Wix experts review your interface and SEO to make sure you have the best possible online presence.

The Business VIP Plan

It’s worth taking a closer look at Wix's Business VIP plan, the top tier Ecommerce deal offered by the company. You get unlimited bandwidth and 50GB storage, no Wix ads, a shopping cart to sell products online, social media logo files, priority response, and VIP support. 

The plan is $35 a month for an annual subscription, and also comes with $300 in ad vouchers, the form builder app, and the site builder app.

The VIP Plan also allows you to maximize your site's effectiveness with the professional site review, in which Wix experts review your interface and SEO to make sure you have the best possible online presence.

Conclusion

Wix has a number of affordable plans with tiers that will fill the needs of individuals, small businesses and those looking to sell merchandise online. 

Wix also offers scalability, as you can always upgrade to a higher tier if your website traffic grows and you find you need more bandwidth or storage. Wix has a multitude of apps that you can purchase if there is a specific feature that you wish to add to your site, such as a search bar or a section for user feedback. Whether you want a pared down and simple site, or a high-powered online store with advanced functions, Wix plans offer you solid value for your money.
