• Overview

    Mobile devices have revolutionized the way that we use the web and Wix is keeping up with the trend.

    Wix Mobile is based on HTML 5 and is designed to provide you with a top market solution for mobile website building. Simplifying the creation of mobile websites, Wix Mobile provides a set of unique templates specifically designed for optimal display and performance on smartphones and tablets/mobile devices.

    Unlike website conversion technologies which offer a limited and basic version of the original website, Wix Mobile will deliver a comprehensive browsing experience while utilizing the full functionality available on modern smartphones.

    Regular websites do not convert well into mobile devices because regular sites and mobile sites work differently and serve different purposes. Wix Mobile allows you to create a mobile site from our mobile templates. Your mobile site will inherit the domain and other settings of your regular Wix website.

    Currently, Wix Mobile sites can be viewed on iPhone, iPad, Android and Blackberry (from version 6) . We are working on supporting more mobile devices and adding more features.

    This is our very first version of Wix Mobile and we will appreciate any feedback you may have to help us develop an even better product for you! Your feedback is very important to us! Please click here to share your ideas with us.

    To create your own Wix Mobile site simply follow the instructions provided below!

    Wix Mobile sites currently do not support eCommerce. However, you can display your products on your Collection page on your Wix Mobile site.
    Users who visit your regular Wix site on supported devices will be automatically redirected to your mobile site. Users who are on unsupported devices will have to go directly to your mobile subdomain to view your mobile site (m.yourdomain.com).

  • Creating a Wix Mobile Site

    You can create a Wix Mobile site for an existing Wix site by accessing the Wix Mobile wizard from My Account.

    To create a Wix Mobile site:

    You must have a Wix website (free or Premium) to create a Wix Mobile site. Your Wix Mobile site will inherit the domain and other settings of your regular Wix website.

    Please note that if you are using a Facebook Page template, you will have to create a regular Wix site to use Wix Mobile.

  • Choosing a Mobile Template

    Once you have created a Wix Mobile site, the Wix Mobile Wizard will walk you through the steps required to edit your mobile site. In the first step of the Wix Mobile Wizard, you will be asked to choose a mobile template.

    You must choose a mobile template before you can continue. Your template is a demo only and is fully customizable.

The viewer allows you to surf the mobile template as if you were viewing it on a real mobile phone. These template pages are demo pages only and you will be able to fully customize them at a later step. You will also be able to add and delete pages.
