Why Builder.ai is the best Wix alternative
Get total visibility on the cost of your online store
As our apps are off the shelf, you know the total amount you'll pay for your store before you make any commitments. This fee is then divided into 24 affordable monthly payments.Read more
After your payment plan is complete, you own your code. In other words, there’s no vendor lock-in, meaning you’re free to scale your app without us or migrate to another platform.
On the other hand, Wix operates on a software-as-a-service (SaaS) payment model, making the lifetime costs of your online store more difficult to estimate.
And although it’s possible to migrate your Wix domain to another provider, it’s likely to be challenging, given that your online store is built on proprietary software.
Grow your website and app alongside your business
Wix is perfect for casual sellers with small inventories, but online businesses looking for scale should consider Studio Store. That's because we give you the ability to bulk upload products to your ecommerce website or app, whereas Wix doesn't.Read more
What’s more, you can add a range of ecommerce features through Builder.ai’s StorePlus expansion pack to cater to emerging business needs. This includes everything from abandoned cart campaigns to advanced reporting, while loyalty and referral programs, custom forms and more are also available.
From a customisation perspective, Builder.ai allows you to change your store’s template whenever you want, whereas you may need to start your store from scratch to do this with Wix.
