Hi, if you are reading this review and you are considering signing up and building your website with WIX, don't! I wish I had read the complaints and reviews on their own website's forums before I did so. I wish there was more publicity online about their appalling issues and inability/unwillingness to deal with them, such as the lack of compatibility with Pinterest and most of all, detrimental to any business hosting a website with wix, the loading time. Customers across the board complain that their websites load with a delay of 8 seconds plus (before it even starts rendering). Many customers don't get a reply at all ( I follow the topics on their forums so I know) and the reply I got was - " Your website is absolutely fine. Here are the stats: it loads in 6.7 secs). It is well known and recognised now that modern day users DO NOT wait 7 seconds for a page to load while looking at a blank white screen. They simply assume that the website is not funcioning and steer away. You end up with a massive bounce rate and any form of marketing or advertising you have invested into your business is money down the drain!! Do not sign up with WIX. It's as simple as that. This issue with their loading time has been going on since November 2012 and they are still not giving their customers (including myself) a time scale of when this might get resolved or what the problem is.
The second major issue is WIX's incompatibility with Pinterest, which again is massive downside to any business trying to be optimised on the web nowadays. Ironically, WIX recognise the marketing value of pinterest so they have it for themselves on their website but it is not available to customers! Lots of people have complained and keep complaining about this, yet apart from off-the-shelf answers like: "we listen to you and we are contstantly working on improving blah blah blah, this is on our list of priorities blah blah blah ..." nobody is getting any concrete dates nor answers as to why it is not possible yet after so many people voting for the feature.
