      Hello,

       

      1. Hosting the site is free, but connecting your domain is a premium feature, in addition to purchasing a domain at Wix.

       

      2. It is impossible to host Wix site on non-Wix servers. 

       

      3. You can upload images to Wix sites. You can find more information here.
      Note: you can only upload .jpg, .png, and .gif files up to 15MB.

       

      4. We are not sure we understand what do you mean by " export a document". It is possible to upload documents to Wix site.

      To learn more about uploading documents, please click here .

       

      Please feel free to contact us in case you need further assistance.

      Hey Kai, 

      Thanks for contacting Wix Support.

      You cannot add third party applications onto a Wix Site. 

      If the application has an obtainable HTML Code, you can insert it into your site via the HTML App.

      You will find the information here:  What is the HTML App?

      Hi Rony,

      Thats a shame, i see from a number of threads that Wix may be adding this capability in the near future.

      For me this is the only thing stopping this software from being "incredible". And i dont say that word every day. Its seamless and the UI is almost flawless.

      If Wix can make the sites compatible with third party intergrations then i think WIX will be a game changer. Very disruptive indeed. Until then i think it is still for the novice.

      Cheers

      Kai

    Trying to decide if I want to use Wix for my site. I have a few questions and I've been poking around for about half an hour, but I can't seem to get them all answered. So here we go. 1) Can I add a button to link to my Etsey store? 2) In the free option what are the ads I'll be seeing? Is there an example somewhere of what that would look like? 3) Can I add buttons for things like Pintrest, Instagram, or Youtube? It looks like you can connect to some social media, but I have yet to see a comprehensive list. 4) Are the forums the only costumer support? I guess that's all for now. Thanks.

      Hi,

      Yes, you can add a member login button to your site.

      You can add a member login button to your site so that your visitors can sign up or login to your site and access your members-only pages.

       

      To add a member login button to your site:

       

      1. From the left side of the Editor, click the Add icon.
      2. From Add, click Apps.
      3. From Apps, click Member Login Button.
      4. Drag the Member Login Button into place.

       

      From Settings, you can click "Show on all pages" to add this button to all of your site's pages.

       

      A member login button is added to your site.

       

      To set which of your pages are members-only and for more information about members-only pages, click here.

      To comment on and vote for additions and changes to this feature, click here.

       

      You can create a main page and add the member login to this page, then add subpages to this page.

      This way only your members will be able to so all the pages under the main page.

      Hi,

      The Wix ads are the same ads that appear in a free site.

      This will appear at the top right of your site:

      And this will appear beneath the content of your site:

     May I use my Intuit Merchant account to process payments from my site? if so, how do I link them?

      Replied by Uma - Wix Team October 21, 2013

      Hi,

      • Unfortunately it is not possible to connect external payment providers to your wix ecommerce cart. Currently, you can use PayPal with your eCommerce shopping cart. Brazilian users can also use PagSeguro (please note that this payment method is available for Brazil only). To connect your merchant account to your store, click on Payment & Currency from Manage Store and choose a payment method from the drop-down menu.
         

        Your customers can also purchase with a credit card without having a PayPal account, for instructions on how to set that up with PayPal, click here.
         

        You can find more information on the PayPal page here.

      Thanks!
