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.

    How do I upload multiple products at once?

    I am setting up an online retail pet supply store.  I have all of the data in an Excel Spreadsheet.  How can I upload it all at once?  There are over 2,800 products.

    I have added items to collections only to find that they have been deleted or changed to items from another collection!  Even if I try to look at history, the items are still gone.  HOURS have been lost in creating these items!  Why am I losing products as I create new pages with new collections??  this is VERY frustrating!

    I have existing galleries with a large amount of products in various ranges. It was not initially intended to have the site as a means to buy directly. However, we now wish to sell these products online.

    Is it possible to convert the existing galleries into product galleries for the online store without having to recreate all of them from scratch?

      Hey  ba0581,


      Unfortunately this is not possible at the moment.

      To add a product gallery, simply click on "Add" -> "Online Store" -> "Product Gallery".

      For more information click here.


      Please note that in order to use the online store you will have to upgrade to eCommerce premium plan.

      This plan includes connecting your domain, removing the Wix ads from your site and using the eCommerce feature. You can store up to 20GB with 10GB bandwidth and you get premium support with this plan!

      You can find more information  here.

      For the Wix Premium Learning Center, click here.

      There are a number of benefits for purchasing the Ecommerce plan:
      *Allows your customers to purchase multiple products.
      *Allows you to keep an up to date inventory.
      *Add discount coupon codes for your customers to enjoy.
      *Offer different product options, like size, color, drop down menu and a message box.
      *Set shipping rules and cost which will determine the amount the customer pays upon the purchase of your products, even if you ship worldwide.

      Thanks for you response, Gill.

      One more question: I see WIX doesn't yet have the option of allowing our customers to buy directly via the site with a credit card (they have to go through a third party like PayPal etc.). Is this a feature that WIX will likely get in the near future?

      Looking into your site I can see you have embedded your store using the HTML App, Since you don't use the Online Store feature we offer we have no control over your store's settings.


      Trying to checkout with your store I am redirected to cdbaby.com, I presume you will be able to control these settings in your account with them.


      If you need additional help with the store please contact cdbaby.com directly as they will be able to assist you further.


      Let us know if there is anything else you need from us.

    Hello Wix Team

    I have a question regarding the online store.

    If I test my online store and open a product to put it in my cart, I can only say Add to Cart but I can not enter how much I want to purchase from the product. Is this normal? Or am I doing something wrong?  I know I can change it if I go to my cart, but it would be useful to enter the amount already when I want to add it to my cart.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi, before i launch my web i test out the online store by purchasing my own item. However i did not received any email notification and there is no update in the order tab of the online store. Is there a buffering time for the order to show up or is there currently problem with the system?

      Please note that in the order status in paypal it is showing as unclaimed, you will only see the orders in the store manager once the status in paypal is showing as completed. Please check directly what the status means.

      How to Set up IPN

      To set your IPN settings in Paypal (instant payment notification)

      Login to your PayPal account > history > IPN history> turn on IPN > receive IPN messages

      You may be asked to write something in the URL field. You can use any URL (e.g., http://google.com) since we override it when we report PayPal of the purchase.

    Wix - I have to say, I'm disappointed. I have critical (and basic) business needs that you currently do not provide. 

    1. Allowing customers to input quantity the same time they are adding items to the cart.

    2. Accepting payment through my site (not routing the customer through PayPal). 

    These two items directly affect my business. Whom can I contact about getting a refund on my Premium account until these items are added? I will have to sell on Etsy until then.

      Thank you for contacting Wix support! 

      I apologize for the inconvenience, I can assure you that our eCommerce team is working extremely hard to improve the online store and constantly adding new features. 

      Please make sure to vote in the Wishlist thread we raised for the topic of being able to select the quantity of the items directly from the product gallery. 

      Also, please post your ideas regarding payment gateways in the Wishlist thread we raised dealing with this topic.

      To cancel your premium upgrade please follow the directions here.
      -Each purchase is guaranteed a full refund only within the first 14 days of trial. 
      If you cancel your upgrade after our 14-day 100% money-back period, your Wix site will continue to receive premium status until the date when your current yearly/monthly payment ends. You will not be charged for the next payment period.
      (Please note that this policy includes Premium package purchases only - it does not include Wix domains which are a non-refundable purchase. If you have purchased both a Premium package and a Wix domain, you will receive a full refund for the package only.)
      -If you do cancel within the 14-day trial period, you will receive a refund within 7 business days. For more information please click here.
      We never remove/destroy websites. If you go back to free from premium you’ll simply have your original Web address and Wix ads but you will still have full control of your site.
      We are sorry to hear you have decided to cancel your Wix Premium upgrade package.  We hope you re-consider your decision and should you require any further assistance please don’t hesitate to contact us.
      Keren, Wix Support
