Pros

I find it truly amazing how little work I need to put in to make an amazing website. You will have people think the website was made by a professional not by yourself in a short amount of time.
I found WIX through an advertisement that claimed that the software was easy to use to create a website for yourself and it's true. It's easy to use and also fun to use.
You will like Wix and I'm sure with a little time and effort and your creative juices flowing, you can create a spectacular website that is user friendly and your customers would appreciate.

Pros

The overall use of this product is amazing, very easy to use and my clients love it. The love the fact that they can do edits themselves.
It's good for what it is, which is a basic website maker that has the ability to make very function, nice looking pages.
Love that Squarespace introduced me to web design due to its ease of use. Templates are as great as Wix and both are really great competitors to one another.

Cons

Their policies are ridiculous and customer service knowledge and etiquette are terrible. I have to share the latest bizarre policy I've run into.
Sometimes the apps cost money or you have limited amount of the app you can use before it costs money. This is frustrating when you start using it and then realize you are stuck.
The only problem that I have faced is that trying get to different pages of your website while in editing mode is confusing.

Cons

The options are limited. Editing pages can be difficult because everything needs to be dragged and dropped into place, but most of the time all of the other blocks will shift during editing.
One of my colleagues who is taking over for me, really disliked how the Squarespace template prevented any changes. He contacted Squarespace and with their assistance was able to break the template.
The flip side is that Squarespace has few if any bugs, while Wix and Weebly can get strange errors in my experience.

Good, but there's better

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall my experience was okay. It's better than Wordpress, but not as good as Squarespace. I chose Squarespace over Wix.

Pros

What I like about Wix is that it is very user-friendly. My website can look very pretty and have cool animations easily.

Cons

The backend system was a little hard to navigate. Thinking through the different pages and URLs was also more challenging with this software than Squarespace.

Wix for website design

Reviewed 6 years ago

The experience was pretty good, but not the best. I would recommend Squarespace.

Pros

I have used Wix for a few websites in the past. The controls to build were pretty straight forward, but as with any website builder you need to learn how to use the tools. The templates are great and suit pretty much any need out there in the industry. Full hosting and easy payment plans.

Cons

This one overall was a little more difficult as far a learning the tools to build a website. Options for customization are a little limited, but there a few things that you can do.

Might be switching from SquareSpace to Wix.

Reviewed 6 years ago

Setting up websites for clients.

Pros

I've experimented and use Wix for clients. It's nice and as easy as the commercials imply. Easy to edit and upload content. I believe it has unlimited page, unlike SquareSpace. I chose SquareSpace because at the time (2016) SquareSpace was a head of Wix. But now it seems like Wix has surpassed Square Space. Wix allows you to be more creative to me.

Cons

"It's so easy that anybody can do it" sort of works against them and is a bit misleading. Once i recommend Wix to a client, they believe that they can do it, or I that can do pretty easily. Most people don't understand what I takes to make a website look legit. And due to Wix commercials, they don't believe me when I tell them, "It takes more than that". So if you're considering this product, it's easy in terms of setting up a website, but it STILL takes work.

Cheap, Clunky & Complicated

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

It's a bit cheaper than Squarespace and has plenty of nice templates to choose from.

Cons

The website builder is overly complicated with separate Desktop and Mobile versions to edit and work on and too much work required to size, position and connect everything. It's a bit like using a word processor to build a website. In comparison, Squarespace just has one version which automatically works on Desktop and Mobile and you don't need to spend any time sizing, positioning or connecting anything.

More functionality and more customizable than Squarespace

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall I was really pleased with Wix, it was generally easy to use and easily customizable.

Pros

I built a website for a close friend's business and evaluated Squarespace and Wix. Ultimately we chose Wix because it allowed for more custom designs. Squarespace has more professional looking out of the box templates, but they're hard to adjust to your specific needs.

Cons

As mentioned above, Wix doesn't have quite as pretty/modern/professional templates as other web design/hosting platforms but because I wanted something customizable, I didn't find this a con. But if you're looking for an out of the box template with little to no modification, than Wix probably isn't the best solution.

We've built a few websites with Wix.

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Wix gives you the ability to change the mobile view only for a website instead of having to edit both desktop and mobile views.

Cons

The user interface seems dated compared to Squarespace. I think the available templates could be modernized a bit.

Good but not great.

Reviewed 6 years ago

It's okay, but I'd choose Wix over Squarespace.

Pros

I've used a few different website platforms and squarespace is high on design.

Cons

Not very customizable. It looks pretty, but its near impossible to do anything custom.

A great website builer

Reviewed 5 months ago

I am a fan of Squarespace, though I use WIX more now. They're basically neck and neck in terms of quality, and it seems down to preference on which you might go with.

Pros

They've consistently improved their platform and have great templates and robust options.

Cons

Perhaps a bit less user-friendly than WIX and other competitors.

Easy CMS

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Easy to use for dummies. More cool functions that WIX

Cons

Prefer it could have more integrations like shopify. Lack of integrations make this less attractive for businesses that prefer process automation

Squarespace

Worth looking into

Reviewed 4 years ago

I used Squarespace for 3 years before transferring to Wix. I didn't have any problems and it suited my needs for the time being. The reason I switched to Wix was because it was cheaper and had more options to customize my website.

Pros

Setting up your personal or business website is easy to do with Squarespace. You don't need to know how to code. You can get a customized email address through using gmail for an extra $6/month. There are different templates to choose from to begin developing your website.

Cons

While you can customize some of the options are limited compared to Wix. The price is competitive with other options but I found Wix to be cheaper in the long run.

Quite expensive, but lots of good features

I have built websites with a few different website builders. Squarespace is one of the easier to use, however you definitely have to pay for it. The templates are great, and its easy to adapt and edit one to suit your style.

Cons

It is quite expensive compared to other similar services such as Wix.

Stunning websites with a moderate learning curve

Reviewed 8 years ago

Squarespace really impressed me with their templates and tools for building a smooth website that looks high-end and very professional. If you are not a premium brand seeking a website that appeals to this type of audience, there are better options for you. If you want premium, then Squarespace is a great option.

Pros

Absolutely beautiful websites.

Cons

Higher learning curve than drag-and-drop builders like Wix or Weebly.

Squarespace for portfolio use

I used squarespace as an art folio page and it was fine, just what I needed at the time.

Pros

Square space is great to create a fast and efficient portfolio page. And they offer a 50%off student diacount.

Cons

It does not have as many drag and drop features, compared to Wix .

Great Way to eliminate Web Designer Cost

Reviewed 6 years ago

Great web design tool for any amateur, avoiding worrying about hosting, domain, and website. Squarespace does it all for you!

Pros

Application is very intuitive and easy to use. All templates are very modern and responsive, so you dont have to fear of using outdated website layouts.

Cons

Templates are still relatively limited. Competitors like wix have proven to have more template options.
