Wix is a very popular website builder that can create beautiful sites. It fits the needs of a lot of people, and its low price is very tempting. But the problem is that Wix tries to appeal to too wide an audience, meaning it lacks the specialized eCommerce features needed by an online store. It may be decent for a beginner, but you'll be quick to outgrow it — if your growth isn't too hindered in the first place by the lack of important tools for selling online. There's a lot Wix can do, but even more that it can't do. When it comes to eCommerce, relying on Wix will hold you back.

Sell online, in person, and on multiple channels with ease, and build a stunning eCommerce website that provides the ultimate shopping experience.
Wix, first and foremost, is a website builder — not an eCommerce platform. Its features are geared toward creating multiple types of simple websites with no great focus on one thing in particular. This means serious online store owners will find Wix quite lacking. 3dcart, however, comes with everything you need to sell online no matter the size of your business, including the most powerful SEO tools in the industry.
Wix provides limited coupon functionality, but doesn't have the power to run promotional events like store-wide sales, countdown daily deals, or group deals. It's also missing several sales tools for reaching out to customers new and old. But 3dcart has everything you need, and everything the big marketplaces have, from promotions to gift certificates to wish lists and more.
"I started my online store with Wix because it was cheap. But it wasn't long before I needed a lot more than Wix could provide. I wish I had known early on that Wix wasn't going to meet my needs… I would have ignored the price and gone straight to a provider that actually supports a growing business."
– Ex-Wix customer
Wix doesn't help you interact with your customers, and you can't even issue refunds through your store. Nor do you have a CRM to keep track of customer relationships. You can't issue store credits, and accepting returns will be risky because there's no RMA system. On the other hand, 3dcart has all the features you need to serve your customers and keep them (and yourself) happy!
3dcart supports around 200 payment providers, more than any other eCommerce platform. See a full list of payment providers here.
Wix only supports a handful of payment providers, which causes customers to turn away when they don't see their favorite payment method listed.
Display real-time shipping calculations from major carriers to your customers, so they can see exactly how much shipping will cost while they add items to their cart.
Your customers can't see this information, so they won't know the shipping costs until checkout — and surprise shipping charges are the number one reason for cart abandonment.
Automatically improve your SEO efforts and expand your reach using 3dcart’s built-in blog feature, which will eliminate any need of re-creating your blog’s design elements or having to direct your blog to your store’s URL.
