You can add an Online Store to any Wix template or a site that you've built from scratch. It's free to try out in the Wix Editor, but you will need to upgrade to the eCommerce plan to start selling. For instructions on how to upgrade, click here.


To add an Online Store: From the left side of the Editor, click the Add icon > click Online Store > click Product Gallery > click Add to Page

From the Choose Collection window, select one of the collections > click OK.


Note: You'll be able to add additional collections or edit your existing collections, at any time, from the Wix Store Manager.

To access the Wix Store Manager: Click the Product Gallery to select it > from the pop-up menu, click Manage Store.


Don't forget to add a Shopping Cart to your site!

To add a Shopping Cart: From the left side of the Editor, click the Add icon > click Online Store > click Shopping Cart.

    Hi, I'd like to be able to offer 'sale' items on my online store - where it would show the previous selling price and the sale price. I've searched for how to do this but still haven't worked out if it's possible. Are you able to suggest anything? Thanks!

      You can show both the retail price and the new price of the product.


      Click on your product gallery > Manage Store > Select a product, in Product Details you have two price fields. 


      The top "Price" field, is the new product price and the "Retail Price" field is the old price, it will appear as crossed out next to the new price.


      You can also add a Ribbon to your product, it's a short message that will appear next to your product (You can add "Sale").


      Please contact us should you require further assistance.

    I've setup my store with shipping and payment and have even made a couple of sales! 

    I'd like to be able to offer pickup and or dropoff as a shipping method - how do I go about doing this?

      Offline payments enable you to accept payment options other than credit cards (i.e. cash, check, bank transfer, wire transfer, etc.). When a customer places an order from your online store, you will receive an email containing the order information and their contact details. Contact them to finalize the order and arrange the method of payment.

      To select the Offline Payments method: Click the Product Gallery to select it > from the pop-up menu, click Manage Store > click the Payment & Currency tab.

      Under Payment Method, select Offline Payment > fill in the relevant information > click Save.

      For detailed information on the Offline Payment method, click here.

      Thanks Rony

      Its not payment that I want to make flexible - I'm happy to have everything go through paypal. I want to be able to offer another shipping option which is Pickup from Store so that people have the option and aren't forced to pay for shipping. Can I set a shipping method that is free?

      I apologize for the confusion.

      Shipping Rules can be calculated by Price Range or Weight Range. In addition, you can add a Handling Fee to all purchases.


      To add Shipping Rules: Click your Product Gallery to select it > from the pop-up menu, clickManage Store > click the Shipping tab > under Shipping Fee Calculation Method, selectPrice Range or Weight Range.

      Click Add Shipping Rule > under Shipping Destination, enter the country that the rule applies to > under Price Range/Weight Range, enter the shipping rule for each price/weight range > clickAdd Range to add another price/weight range.

      Repeat this process to add Shipping Rules for different countries.


      To add a handling fee to all purchases: Under Handling Fee > enter the amount.


      Note: If you have set up shipping and tax options on your merchant account, you will need to remove these settings before using the Store Manager shipping and tax settings.

    I upgraded to the ecommerce plan today so I can start selling products. However I would like to change my current template to the electronic store (ecommerce) template. When I try to transfer it mentions that I must have at least 2 documents. I don't know what this means. I just want to switch the template without changing my domain name.

      I can see that you currently have two sites, "sanusek" and "sanusek-1". Your domain is currently connected to sanusek-1.


      I have transferred your premium plan to sanusek for you.

      Please let us know should you require further help.

    I am currently a monthly subscriber to Wix using the Unlimited Plan.  I'm thinking about adding an ecommerce store to my site and was wondering what 10 GB bandwidth limit is all about where the Unlimited Plan is, well... unlimited.  I noticed the next tier (VIP) is also unlimited, is this to get customers to buy the higher cost VIP plan?

    Also, if I integrate/upgrade to the a new plan with an e-store, do I have to completely redo my site?  I would prefer not to.  Anyway to upgrade my current site to include an e-store option?

    Lastly, how do I prevent being double charged like I did when I upgraded my previous site from a Flash-based site to an HTML 5 site.

    I wrote in before but didn't get a response, Can you please let me know ASAP?  Thank you.


    Best Regards, eric w.

      Hi, and thank you for contacting the Wix support team.


      The difference between the Unlimited premium package and the VIP premium plan includes first priority support, connecting your domain and removing the Wix ads from your site. You can store up to 20GB with unlimited bandwidth.

      In regards to upgrading your account - you will not have to redo your site. The site itself will not change however you will need to add the e-store to it.


      If you wish to upgrade your premium plan please see  How can I upgrade an existing Wix premium plan?


      We are here should you require further assistance.

      Many thanks, Barrios

      Unfortunately the Wix Online Store does not provide a similar function as the Point of Sale. You can however create a Shopify store and embed it to your Wix site. You can read more about it here

    Is it possible to use the store without selling products online?  We're setting up a site for a liquor store and do not have plans for eCommerce at the current time but we do want to show select products / weekly specials.  If the store cannot be used this way can anyone recommend a good plugin for this?


    • Alina Wix Team

      Replied by Alina June 21, 2014


      You can try it out for free in the Wix Editor and use the product galleries but to start selling you'll need to upgrade to the Wix eCommerce package.  The users will be able to use the store (but will not be able to finish the purchase).

    There is something wrong with the hover mode of my online store. It was working fine previously and suddenly some items do not display the item name when the mouse hovers the picture. It's okay for other items. Please tell me how to fix this.
