How Much Does Wix Cost?

Now that we've told you a bit about what Wix is and how it works, we're going to quickly go over how much it costs to use.  Don't worry; you can use Wix.com for free if you want to, but you might be missing out on some really cool goodies.  We'll explain below.

Is Wix free?

Wix can be used for free, giving you unlimited web pages, 500 megabytes of memory storage space, and a secure, mobile-friendly website that you can drag and drop elements onto to create.  However, Wix has premium plans that give various upgrades, such as more storage space and the ability to remove Wix ads.

How Wix pricing works

The cost of Wix depends on which plan you use for it.  There are six plans for Wix, ranging from Free to VIP.  Besides the free plan, the cost of Wix plans can be anywhere from $4 per month to $30 per month.  However, more expensive plans add more benefits, such as upgraded bandwidth or memory storage space.

Generally, Wix's low-tier subscription plans don't give you as much value for money as those of some of its competitors, such as Weebly.com or Jimdo.com.  However, its higher-tier plans are well worth the money.

The costs of each of the different plans for using Wix are listed below.  All benefits listed are on top of those offered by the free plan (except when it comes to memory space restrictions, in which case these upgrades do not include the initial 500 megabyte limit), except for those listed in the free plan itself.
