Wix will cost you a lot in business, custos, reputation, etc if you sign up with them. Trust me, if you are building a website for a commercial purpose of any sort (basically anything apart from a dummy website for your granny to see that you have made something that looks great - cause that's all it is! It does not work! Only your grandma would sit for 10 secs + in front of a white screen waiting for her precious grandchild's website to load. I wish that's how customers behaved!)
I really cannot stress enough how awaful this service is. You will build a beautiful website with their easy site builder tools, then you will feel very proud of yourself and then you will realise (once you publish it on the web) that it doesn't function! Load times of 8 seconds plus are the case at the moment (and have been since November 2012) across the board on many WIX customers' websites.
This alone will loose you countless business!
To top this up, despite the fact that their main client base is photographers and artists, they DO NOT SUPPORT PINIT!. I repeat, no PinIt button!! This I am sure you are aware is a massive massive missed marketing opportunity for all visual artists, photographers, etc. Most business in fact, but particularly the afore mentioned.
So, enough said, don't get trapped in their webs. I hope you read this review before you sign up or even worse, before you invest time in building a non-functional website. You will then be trapped by all that invested time and it will take you ages to take the plunge and see that you need to rebuild it elsewhere as it just isn't working.
And just to say, all these issues have been raise countless times with Wix Customer Support, but their customer service is APPALING!! I am not joking, they just don't care. They do not act on sericous server and functionality issues they have!
So, don't don't sign up.
