Wix ecommerce pricing can be slightly confusing as there are a lot of options to choose from. Which is why we’ve put together this comprehensive guide to Wix pricing. So you can make an informed decision about your online shop or website.
Wix ecommerce pricing overview
Wix’s pricing starts from just £6 per month and ranges up to £22 per month. Here’s an overview of all of their plans, from non-ecommerce plans to ecommerce plans which we’ll look into more detail later on.
|Plan||Price (per month)||Best For|
|Unlimited||£8.50||Entrepreneurs and freelancers|
|Connect Domain||£3||Most basic|
|Business VIP||£22||Full suite|
|Business Unlimited||£16||Growing a business|
|Business Basic||£13||Accepting online payments|
Whichever plan you choose will heavily depend upon what you need from your website or ecommerce shop. Whether you’re a freelancer looking to host a portfolio of work or looking to sell your handmade goods online, let’s look into the plans in a little more detail.
Non-ecommerce website plans
Looking in detail at each of their non-ecommerce plans, you can start to see what features and services you’ll get for each.
|£18 p/m||£8.50 p/m||£6 p/m||£3 p/m|
|Free domain (1 year)||Yes||Yes||Yes||–|
|Remove Wix ads||Yes||Yes||Yes||–|
|Free SSL Certificate||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|Video hours||5 hours||1 hour||30 minutes||–|
|£75 ad voucher||Yes||Yes||Yes||–|
|Site booster app||Yes||Yes||–||–|
|Social media logo files||Yes||–||–||–|
|Customer care||Priority customer care||24/7 customer care||24/7 customer care||24/7 customer care|
With Wix, most plans have some form of limitation to them. Meaning that if you really need a particular feature or service such as a professional logo or more bandwidth or storage – then you’re going to be pushed up to the higher priced plans.
If your website then receives a high increase in traffic or you need more video storage, this will either cost you more on your monthly plan or will restrict you from adding as much video content, for example.
However, these plans are good if you’re just starting out but watch out for things like how much storage space you’ve used etc. With platforms like EKM, we don’t restrict any of our customers when it comes to video content and with us, there’s no limit on bandwidth or storage space. We like to keep our plans as simple and easy to understand as possible.
Why not take a look at our plans where everything you need to set up an online shop is included.
Ecommerce website plans
Their ecommerce plans, however, are a bit different and provide a lot more features and services. If you’re looking to sell products online, this is a better option – but not perfect.
|Business VIP||Business Unlimited||Business Basic|
|£22 p/m||£16 p/m||£13 p/m|
|Secure online payments||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|Plans & recurring payments||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|Free domain (1 year)||Yes||Yes||Yes|

|Video hours||Unlimited||10 hours||5 hours|

|Product reviews by KudoBuzz||3,000 reviews||1,000 reviews||–|
|Loyalty programme by Smile.io||Yes||–||–|
Are they good for ecommerce businesses?
Again, some of their ecommerce plans are restricted with their features and services. And if you want those for your business then it forces you up to the higher priced plans.
Their Business Basic plan is enough for most ecommerce businesses to get started with and at a modest £13, it’s not going to set you back too much. Although with this plan there are no commission fees charged by Wix, other than your payment gateway transaction costs.
Their Business Unlimited would suit larger more established businesses with features such as their automated sales tax, label printing, dropshipping and product reviews. And lastly their Business VIP plan is really valuable for business owners who need fast support and higher limits for things like dropshipping.
Overall, while Wix’s plans aren’t a bad place to start, if you’re an ecommerce business you may find yourself quickly paying for more than you signed up for. Which is why with EKM, all our plans are a fixed monthly cost, with no hidden extras or charges. Our customer support team is also world class, offering support 7 days a week along with a whole host of guides for everything you need to run a successful online shop.
Now that we’ve looked at Wix’s plans let’s look a bit deeper into some of the other services you can get from Wix.
As a new customer to Wix you can receive a free domain for a year, with selected premium plans. When you sign up for a premium plan, you’re offered a voucher for your free domain, which you can redeem.
The voucher provided entitles you to a free domain for one year. After that if you wish to keep your domain, you will need to pay for any additional years you want to add to your subscription. When you do this the cost will vary depending on the TLD (Top Level Domains) which are the letters that come after the period i.e. ‘.com’.
You can also connect as many domains as you’d like to your Wix website or up to 6 domains that were purchased from another domain provider. Your primary domain will connect to your site and any other additional domains will redirect to your primary domain.
If you already own a domain you can transfer it to Wix which usually takes less than 48 hours but transferring can take up to 7 days.
Email address cost
When it comes to email addresses with Wix, they have partnered up with G Suite which is Google’s Gmail for Businesses. This enables you to create a business email account using Google within Wix’s dashboard.
Custom email addresses start from around $5.00 per month if you decide on a month-to-month plan. A small discount is applied to your email cost when you purchase an annual plan. A business email address is a great way to ensure consistency across your business and gives an air of professionalism.
Email marketing is an essential part of any business and can not only help you communicate with customers but also increase your engagement with an email newsletter, inform customers of new product launches and other email marketing campaigns too.
Wix app costs
Wix’s App Market hosts a whole range of apps that you can add to your ecommerce shop. From Marketing to Design and apps to help you generate leads, analyse your traffic and communicate with your customers.
Most of these apps are free to install to your Wix website, but they also have paid apps too. The price for these premium apps range between $3 and $20 per month and some come with a free trial. However, depending on how many apps you need to add to your site, this can quickly become very expensive.
As an EKM customer, our plans include everything you need from shop analytics, to customer email notifications and features like ‘product urgency’ as well as many partner integrations.
Wix Ascend is their complete Marketing & Customer Management Suite. Prices for Wix Ascend start from their free plan which is pre-installed, up to £34.06 per month for their Unlimited plan.
|Limited Plan||Basic Plan||Professional Plan||Unlimited Plan|
|Free||£6.95 per month||£16.68 per month||£34.06 per month|
|Send 3 Ascend branded email campaigns||5 email campaigns||20 email campaigns||Unlimited email campaigns|

The business tools within Wix Ascend are great if you’re trying to grow traffic, gain customer insights, boost engagement and conversions and manage your business. However, if you require more videos for your site or any of the features on the higher plan, this again will push up your monthly costs.
Which is why at EKM, everything is included in our plans and we work on a shared success model. So when your business is growing and successful, we give you the tools and support you need, exactly when you need it.
What to look out for
When it comes to comparing ecommerce and website solutions there are a few things you need to keep in mind and look out for.
While some solutions may look cheaper than others on the surface. It’s most likely that any extra tools you need will be an additional cost on top of the initial monthly plan price. This can end up quickly adding up and become more expensive than other providers on the market.
But you’ll want to do your own research and be thorough about what tools and add ons you may need before you get stuck into your website. And if later down the line you decide that another solution may be a better option than the one you have and is cheaper, moving your website or ecommerce shop can be time consuming and difficult.
How does EKM compare?
Whichever EKM plan you choose, you’ll have all the tools and features you need to start selling online. Our plans start from just £32.49 +VAT per month and give you a fully operational shop with no hidden costs.
Secondly, EKM has a 6-month money-back guarantee so you really have the time to get to know the platform, set up your shop the way you want and see if we’re the right fit. EKM also has lots of fully optimised themes to choose from as well as a UK based support team who are available 7 days a week.

Do I need to pay for hosting with Wix?
No you do not need to pay for hosting with Wix. It is included in your plan.
How much does a Wix domain cost?
You can get a domain free for the first year, but after that domain costs annually are around $14.95 per year. However, prices can vary.
Does Wix have any hidden costs?
Their additional services like Ascend and other Wix Apps may end up costing you more on top of your monthly plan and there is an auto-renewal at the end of the year. This can be turned off in your account settings.
Does Wix have a free trial?
Wix does have a free plan which you can stay on as long as you like but it is very restrictive.
Does Wix have a money back guarantee?
Yes, Wix has a 14 day money back guarantee so you can test out their platform to see if it’s the right fit for you.
