Wix Stores events are fired in your site's backend when certain events occur in your site's store. You can write event handlers that react to these events. Event handler functions receive data that corresponds to the event that has occurred. Use event handlers to create custom responses to store events.

To add a store event handler, add an events.js file to the Backend section of your site if one does not already exist. All event handler functions for your site are defined in this file.

Event handler functions are defined using the following pattern:

export function <wixAppName>_<eventName>(event) { }
javascript | Copy Code

For example, an event handler that handles cart abandonment in a Wix Store looks like this:

export function wixStores_onCartAbandoned(event) { }
javascript | Copy Code

Note: Backend events don't work when previewing your site.
