Very good platform to build quick and easy good websites and landing pages

Excellent tool for small companies to make a representable website. Also nice if you want to have a portfolio.

Pros

Compared with other expensive tools Pixpa is easy, quick to set up. Also the customer service is very quick and helpfully. I use this tool already years and it works for me the best.

Cons

The amount of possible templates could be more extend. Also to support a better strategy to use SEO could be helpful.

Graphic designer porfolio

Reviewed 2 months ago

Overall, it works very well for what I needed it for. If I needed more customization, I may have to go a different route. The pricing and ease of use makes it worth it for me.

There isn't as much customization that can be done with the product.

Excellent Support, Great Price, Beautiful Client Gallery Options, Important /SEOMarketing Features

Reviewed 2 years ago

I started my photography business 6 months ago and all of my deliveries of digital images have been done using my Pixpa-hosted website. Clients have had a seamless experience and love their beautiful image galleries. I have also been able to display my portfolio pages and have clients reach me through my website.

Pros

Low monthly fee & EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SUPPORT! Clean and intuitive website management features. Beautiful Client galleries that can be password protected, allow for comments and favourite-ing of images, the ability to sell digital prints directly from the website. Beautiful and ready-to-go templates for website build.

Cons

While there are numerous website build templates, additional templates are needed (Pixpa has indicated that they are working on developing more. Using the templates straight up is easy, however, if you wish to customise the templates significantly, it can become a bit challenging to adjust the various features since this is not a drag-and-drop build. However, there are very DETAILED tutorial walkthroughs available in the help section of the management area. In addition, Pixpa has EXCELLENT customer service. I have been able to get feedback real-time using the help chat feature, and have also gotten detailed followup via email within 24 hours.

Vendor response

Hi Lucanus! It's great to know that Pixpa was able to check the boxes for you in terms of pricing, features and customer support. We strive to always make our users happy and content so it's great to hear you had a positive experience. Thank you for your review! - Team Pixpa

Beautiful Site for Artist Business

Reviewed 2 months ago

I wanted a low cost, good-looking website, with hosting included. Pixpa made implementation easy, even for someone who does creative art work, not a professional in the web design business. In only a few days, I had a complete, beautiful site, with a functional store. compared to another provider Id used in the past for another domain, my site is easier to use and better looking. Customer service was very helpful with the one question I had. I will be continuing to use Pixpa.

Pros

Pixpa made connection and hosting easy. Their many templates were good looking, and I found one that looked appropriate for my art display. Customizing with logo, content, and colors was easy. Hooking up to Stripe payment was not difficult either. The store sections are easy to set up, as there are prompts like SEO, tags, and more.

Cons

I understand their reasons for not connecting domain name email as it is just not what they want to do. But I did have to get my email from another place. Hover, who did the domain connection, had inexpensive email, so it was not really a problem. It would also be nice to have additional payment options, beyond PayPal and Stripe, although these are very common. I use Stripe, so again, not a problem, but I have been asked to identify areas where they could improve, so there you are!

A great all-in-one service for photographers

Reviewed 2 years ago

I found Pixpa when looking for an all-in-one photography experience that would include a website as well as possibilities to provide client galleries and selling photos. I’m so glad I chose them. The website looks very professional and the software is very user friendly. It’s very reasonably priced and much cheaper than having to pay for all of these services separately.

Pros

I like that Pixpa houses all necessary services like website building, client galleries and selling images under one umbrella. It prevents integration problems and makes that you ultimately pay less.

Cons

Pixpa is very user friendly, but the website building software could be a bit more versatile in comparison to other big more general website building software.

Hi Sarah! We are very happy to know that you have been enjoying our platform! Good to know that our client galleries and e-commerce facilities have been able to help you handle your needs all in one place!

Very happy customer, looking forward for this long term journey.

Reviewed 2 years ago

I’m new customer to Pixpa. As a photographer, I was looking for platform that would let me set up my website with minimum to no coding. After researching a bit, i narrowed down to Pixpa. I’ve to say, I’m more than happy and much more relaxed with what Pixpa is offering and i’m more than satisfied to endorse this platform. This is exactly what i was looking for in terms of my website partnership. At this point, I’m staying with Pixpa unless they force my hand with crazy price hikes down the line but based on support and fair business practice and prices they shown me, it seems highly unlikely. What remains to be seen is, how can i use this platform to publish or tell my story.Very happy customer, looking forward for this long term journey. Thanks,Rahul

Pros

Following were key point of my “happiness”1. They did not package services like workspace and domain service. They gave and suggested good option but allowed me to have control over the plan structure and provide smooth integration across all key platforms i was looking at. 2. No matter how much they simplify, creating website is going to have certain technical aspects (as they should to provide users...

Cons

This is not exactly "Cons" but i work in software industry and i write complicated code for living. They have strong framework (which is how it should be). Unless you get grip on this framework, you won't be able to put foot down. In my book, that is not Con but actually a great thing. But for some, who doesn't have even 5 mins to read the articles and just doesn't have patience to carefully look at error and go to right link, this will be con. (Personally i love Pixpa for this and i don't recommend you “directly putting foot down”.)

Excellent, affordable service with great templates and great customer service

Reviewed 3 years ago

I love so many things about Pixpa, including the fact that that let you do a free trial period without entering your credit card information, their clean and up to date templates, the fact that they are always improving upon their websites,and their wonderful customer service.

Pros

Pixpa staff make this software more and more straightforward to use the longer that it is around. The templates are clean and offer a variety of different themes, and the customer service has always been excellent, with the Pixpa customer service experts consistently responding within 5 minutes or less.

Cons

There was a bit of a learning curve getting use to this website editor as opposed to other WYSIWYG editors, but the learning curve was not very steep and it didn't take me long to get used to it.

Hi Chrissy! Your review title summarizes everything we want to be and we are delighted to know that we have succeeded in that for you!

I Should Have Changed To Pixpa Years Ago

Reviewed 2 years ago

My overall experience has really been a wonderful surprise. The ease of use with the software, the speed of their servers, and fantastic support. The reason I was looking for a new WebHost / software was to get away from the third-party subscriptions using WordPress. The prices of Square, Wix, etc. was more than double the cost of Pixpa If it wasn't for the 15 day trial, I would have stayed using WordPress on the old hosting company. I was overall happy with them and had been running my business with them for years.

Pros

What I like most is how full-featured this software is for a photographer's website. It's easy to make forms, set up client proofing areas, client orders, payment processing, and customize your website. All this and more in one software. For years I've been using WordPress for my business website and relying on third-party plugins for these features. Many of these third-party plugins also have monthly or yearly subscriptions. The cost of Webhosting and the additional plugins make Pixpa a bargain and much easier for us do-it-yourself people.

Cons

For me the only con with Pixpa and needing an email host provider. I firmly believe if you have a business and website you should have emails that use your domain name. I feel that is really important and more professional than using a gmail.com account or free email service. I fully understand why Pixpa doesn't have mail services. But I think that's the only area that I can find a con with their services and software.

Vendor response

Hi Larry! We're glad you found Pixpa! We're very happy to know that Pixpa was able to meet your needs as a photographer and help you set up your beautiful website, nothing pleases us more than making our users happy.

Website builder for a retiree

Reviewed a year ago

I wanted to create a website where I could share my photography with family and friends, as well as others who are interested in my work. I was able to get my website up and running in less than 6 hours, which is not bad considering that I have no experience in website development. Their templates are simple to modify and the website editor is simple to understand and use. I am very glad to have found Pixpa when searching for a way to create my website.

Pros

The process of setting up a website for my photography was straightforward for me, even though I had no experience with website development. The chat function for customer support was superb, with friendly, helpful people on the other end of the line. They are creative in helping and are patient as I tried to explain what I wanted to do, or what mistake I think I made. The price for the website seemed fair when compared to other services out there. The system is quite flexible, allowing me to grow my website in the future and add other features/pages to my website.

Cons

While the examples and directions on how to do certain things are helpful, they are definitely geared towards those who know what is going on. Perhaps they could add a glossary to explain some of the more important phrases or words, so a user without much knowledge of website development could better follow their examples.Beyond the above, which is probably related more to my inexperience than any fault of Pixpa, I am hard pressed to find a problem with Pixpa

Vendor response

We're absolutely thrilled to read your feedback! 😄 It's awesome to hear that you found setting up your photography website straightforward, even without prior experience in website development. Our support team is delighted to know they could assist you effectively, and your kind words mean a lot to us! We appreciate your suggestion about adding a glossary to make things even more user-friendly, and we'll certainly consider it. We want Pixpa to be as accessible as possible for all users.

Pixpa is Five Star!

Reviewed 2 years ago

My decision to go ahead with Pixpa has been one of the best I have made with respect to hosting my galleries and especially so with the functionality of a blog. By having this option, I am now able to add html5 + js in the Pixpa studio and showcase my interactive videos and see some good cash flow.

Pros

In addition to increased functionality from my previous host and substantially reduced cost (close to 60%!), Pixpa displays my galleries in a most pleasing and dynamic manner. There are numerous options for design elements and if you happen to choose one style that you soon become tired of, with a click you’re back to your original choice. The team behind Pixpa has obviously spent plenty of time in enabling photographers to implement a design layout that suits their specific needs.

Cons

It took a while to become familiar with the GUI in the studio builder, but it was just a matter of time working with the tools and I was up and running. Also, management was prompt and helpful with my requests.

Pixpa Flexible Web CMS

Reviewed a month ago

Our experience has been really good, great in fact! Their customer service has to be the best in the business. One of the main reasons why we keep choosing and recommending Pixpa. We did try one of the in house website builders from the domain hosting service (OMG so bad) but we went back to Pixpa almost immediately! If they can remain price competitive then they deserve every success as it really is a great product!

Pros

The platform is aimed at photographers and creatives but it's very flexible, fully featured and a very sophisticated platform that doesn't need (but can support) coding. Compared to the other platforms we have tried Pixpa has been the best option.

Cons

Not found any limitations that have made us want to switch CMS. being able to add subscription based account management / access to certain pages as a native feature would be brilliant but they do have support fro third party systems.

Vendor response

Hi Ben, Thank you for your detailed and positive review! We're thrilled to hear that Pixpa has been the best option for you among other platforms and that you appreciate its flexibility and rich features tailored for creatives.

Looks good but has flaws

Reviewed 2 months ago

Average and at times unnecessarily frustrating. I won't be renewing my subscription. Yes, it's cheaper than some platforms out there, but the frustration and shakeable trust in the product makes me wish I'd stuck with the platform I was on before I moved to Pixpa. When I compare Pixpa to Format or Pixieset(both of whom I've used in the past) it doesn't match in terms of being a solid all-round professional product; having a clear UI (for example, there are customisation icons that are present but don't do anything - which is just confusing); and, in my experience, I don't feel the platform offers an overall sense of stability.

Pros

The customisable templates look good and it is relatively easy to create a good-looking website - however, there are limits to the customisation of the blocks systems and you end up with a relatively generic website that doesn't distinguish it from many of the platforms out there such as Squarespace. Customer service is pretty good though I often have to wait more than 24 hours for resolution of an issue.

Cons

As a professional, I have used many portfolio platform builders in my time and, for me, there are just too many wired glitches with the backend of Pixpa. It doesn't feel as stable as a platform like Squarespace or Format - not enough for me to trust it with my professional service and website long-term. I have had to reach out to the service team on too many occasions for too many basic things like the website content disappearing, not being able to log in to my account for no apparent reason, password rest emails not being sent to the correct email address etc.

Pixpa Made Me Successful!

Reviewed 2 months ago

Pixpa was the first website builder I chose in 2017 when I decided it was time to buy my own domain name and build a website. I will never change to another provider, now I am so familiar with the program and had such professional advantages to having my website live and set up in the way it is, which in short, looks great! I chose Pixpa over Wix, Squarespace and Wordpress when considering who to build my website with because I liked the layout options, and Pixpa was an affordable price for me.

Pros

Using my website for Business opportunities is easy with Pixpa, because I can update my content so quickly for potential clients to see. The layout of the dashboard is simple and intuitive, and if I need support, the chatbot function is very helpful and responsive. People can contact me directly through the website, which bridges the gap between potential business partners and the question of how to reach me. My business performance has increased because of this!

Cons

Sometimes I have trouble adjusting text formatting from edit mode to how it looks on the live site, but have looked up shortcuts to fix this.

The best value for money overall package for a pro photographer to maintain his own website!

Reviewed 2 years ago

I am using the service for the last five years and my experience is totally positive. I built and maintain very easily my own website and I really like the overall design and the aushthetics of the templates. For the last year i am also the author of two blogs that I am able to run directly from Pixpa.

Pros

Templates design, photo galleries design, simplicity of use, server up time, integrated blogging

Cons

I don't think that they are cons, they are just some useful updates need to be done. Just add VSCO and VERO in social icons. Add central management of the photos in one place so the user can have total control of the files.

Almost perfect! Great for my needs and EXCELLENT for Artists

Reviewed 2 years ago

Pixpa is basically allowing me to spend less time on my site, fiddling with things meant for CODERS to work with, not people like me. The price is excellent, it functions well, it loads quickly, and I am overall very pleased! I think with some tweaking of the ecommerce side of things, it would even take it to the next level. I'm happy that this site was made with artist's needs in mind.

Pros

First of all...the reason I switched from Shopify to Pixpa was mainly due to price( Pixpa price is perfect, I feel, while Shopify will eat you alive with apps), but then I realized there was way more to love about Pixpa than I initially thought. I really love how easy this is to use, for something who has no coding experience. I was able to make a great website within a week, list my products, and...

Cons

So far I think the only thing I can think of is that when I compare it to Shopify, the checkout process probably could use some tweaking. The other thing is that when people checkout, the confirmation email often either goes to spam, or gives my gmail users a red alert for having "dangerous" content. One other thing that I noticed was that sometimes as I was editing a page, that website builder would crash occasionally, but it wasn't such a big deal to me, considering all the other positives.

Exceptional Platform With Exceptional Service

Reviewed 2 years ago

Pixpa is a "Wordpress Be Gone" answer for me. I was on the prowl for something less bulky, less time consuming, and better customer support for those rare issues/questions. Pixpa came through like a mega-god, seriously. They've been superior since day one and continually show their superiority through their reliability, reasonable pricing and flexibility.

Pros

Pixpa is wonderful, easy to use, speedy and allows you the flexibility and creative freedom to build a site (basic or advanced) that fits your individual needs. They offer an e-commerce solution, as well as the ability to blog and host client galleries for creatives. My business wouldn't be where it is without Pixpa and I owe them a huge debt of gratitude for making things so simple and streamlined while keeping it professional and unique.

Cons

If anything, I think, it's just the templates. But even so, they've come a long way since I signed up and they keep releasing new updates, templates/sections/snippets, etc. I've not once needed anything they don't offer.

Powered a desire in me to have a bigger web presence with great UI, designs and SEO.

Reviewed 2 years ago

My experience with Pixpa has been emotionally very satisfying, largely because of their excellent customer service. The entire team has always been excellent at handling all my concerns and answering all my questions with detailed feedback, sometimes simply making the changes how I envisioned them. It is a brand that consistently exceeds expectations.

Pros

Simple, fast, visually appealing, functional, and easy to use. Outstanding customer service is an added bonus. I have created two personal websites and plan to make some for clients.

Cons

There are no real negatives. I have used many platforms so I have a good background to compare this platform with others. Pixpa offers the best value for the money, and the customer service is better than any of their competitors; better than Squarespace, Wix, and WordPress from my experience. I suggest maybe allow templates that is geared towards a funnel landing pages. It can be achieved with some advanced customization and coding but this platform would be a game changer if they had templates that simply allowed you to create that.

Best website builder for photographers

Reviewed 3 years ago

couldn't be happier with Pixpa. I tried almost every other platform there is but finally went with Pixpa. They are straightforward with their pricing and honestly, it's the best value you can find out there! I went with their all in one package which is an extremely good value for money.

Pros

Everything about starting and deploying your website is super easy. The eCommerce section and where you sell your photos for print does get a little confusing though. However, once you figure it out, it's super straightforward

Cons

I feel like some of the features have some overlaps with each other. Not that it's a bad thing, but it does take some time to figure out which one you should use. However, their customer service always helps super fast!

Vendor response

Great website builder for photographers

Reviewed 3 years ago

So far, so good. Overall experience has been very good. I really like the ease of use and ability to have almost all features in one package that is affordable in pricing. If you are a photographer Pixpa is a no-brainer and support is just wonderful.

Pros

I really like the client galleries feature in Pixpa, which is a great way to deliver photos/files to customers. I also like many tailor-made features for photographers such as watermarking images if needed, right click protection and so on. Templates are impressive and customer support is unparalleled in its friendliness and efficiency and its available 24/7. It is that good!

Cons

There could be more storage space included in the basic plans and multilingual sites can be challenging to build (to be honest there are tools translate menus and other functions but in order to have a website running completely in two or more languages you may need to buy multiple sites/plans). Integrated booking feature would also be nice to have

Vendor response

Hello Mikko! We are very happy to know that you have been enjoying Pixpa. Great to see you loving our client galleries! Thank you for choosing Pixpa and for taking the time to leave us a review! - Mia

Smashing website builder!

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

I like how easy it is to use Pixpa. The pricing plan is one of the most affordable on the market and it gets the job done. The templates are also clean with several options to choose from. You can then customise pages to your own preference. Overall, I'll recommend this to anyone who needs a website of their own.

Cons

The only thing I wasn't impressed with was the mobile layout couldn't automatically resize horizontal photos. I had to create a different gallery banner specifically for the mobile layout which made it a bit inconvenient. I hope Pixpa would work on this soon as there are increasingly more leads/clients/editors who are viewing our websites from their phones and first impressions are important.

Vendor response

Hi Aisha! It's great to know that Pixpa was able to check the boxes for you in terms of pricing, ease of use, and templates. We strive to always make our users happy and content so it's great to hear you had a positive experience. We are constantly growing to improve as a platform and better meet the needs of our users. Your feedback is valuable to us in helping us reach that goal. Thank you for your review! - Team Pixpa

Better alternative to Squarespace/Format

Reviewed 2 years ago

I'm creating a design portfolio and will be transferring my art portfolio to Pixpa based on the amount of features, the ease of use, customization options, and all for a better price.

Pros

Pixpa seems to offer exactly what I need for a reasonable price. I used to pay double what I'm paying now for my Pixpa site for a service that offered less functionality, less customization, and capped the number of galleries I was allowed at much less than I'm getting with Pixpa. The templates are designed thoughtfully and are very dynamic - there is plenty you can do with your website.

Cons

The website builder tool has a lot to offer, but at times I feel it could use more drag-and-drop functionality.

Vendor response

A Solid Low Cost Alternative to Other Expensive Web Builders

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

Two things: 1. The price - $8 a month monthly, without an annual subscription. Annual subscription is around 50% off. 2. The customer service has been top-notch. During the day and night I have had two people stay with me while I built my site - and it has always been those same two people.

Cons

When I want to make adjustments, the page refreshes. So it's a lot of tinkering and waiting to see if you like the change.

Vendor response

Hi Daniel, Thank you for your thoughtful review! We're delighted to hear that Pixpa's affordability and our dedicated customer service have made a positive impact on your website building experience. Your insight into the consistency in service, with the same support team members assisting you, is especially encouraging. We appreciate your feedback regarding the page refresh during adjustments. We're continuously working on optimizing our platform to enhance the user experience, and your comments are invaluable in this process. Thank you for choosing Pixpa over other options for its value and reliability. We're committed to delivering an even smoother and more efficient experience moving forward! Best, Pixpa Team
