    Actually WIX Was not helpful at all it forces you buy a domain i know this was supposed to be a free wix web maker this is just a waste of my time!

    HI, I have a question : can you add your logo with a transparant background on the homepage/on a background/on other areas? How does that work, do you just upload your logo in png as a picture in Wix and it works?

    thank you for the slower pace!  also this video helped me understand some of the things I need to do before I sit down to create my website, like pics, webside name, etc.  many thanks.

    Excellent tutorial. I'm creating one for a business. I went to see the price plans and had questions about the following in the list: 1) 10 video hours,
    2) $300 Ad vouchers,
    3) Site booster App. $60 value,
    4) Visitor analytics app $60 value,
    5) Professional log $60

    One of the premium business plans had these listed under it. Do I have to pay for the ones with the dollar amount once I buy the plan? Or is that just something they give me a chance to upgrade to within the plan?

    Really enjoyed your video! We already have a WIX page that someone set up for us as a favor. We teach classes. We would like to set up a page where our customers can register for our classes (in different locations) and be able to accept credit card payments. Do you have a video on that? Thanks!

  • Reply Dave Gizmo August 26, 2019 at 12:01 am

    That is very expensive. And they keep charging more and more each year.

    As I have said before, your videos are great! They are easy to follow. I do have another question. A friend set up our site on WIX and I am looking to make a lot of changes to it without taking our current site down. Is "Duplicating" the same as copying? If so, can I copy it, make changes, then replace the original with my updated site? We have a premium subscription. Thank you in advance!

  • Reply Jay Siegel August 28, 2019 at 11:53 pm

    Hi, it's me AGAIN! I had created a document in Word and also saved it as a pdf. Is it possible to copy the document onto a page in WIX? I don't want to have people click on an icon, I would like to have the document visible on the page. Once again, thanks and I'm sorry to be a bother.

  • Reply ShungiteShack August 29, 2019 at 5:32 pm

    Greg, thanks for the vid. A good job explaining. A few questions: have a godaddy name that just bought, so thinking easier to use their site builder or would you switch to this personally? How do you add a payment/checkout scenario? How do you place the postage meter set up for shipping options? Is it easy to change photos and relative prices to those photo items by yourself? Thank you.

  • Reply Samuel Morton August 29, 2019 at 7:12 pm

    Great video Greg Gottfried. An issue that is not clear to me is video channels. How to use them to manage which pages your videos are displayed on in your site. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you

  • Reply estherlovesxx August 30, 2019 at 11:25 am

    Hi Greg I’ve got a question, if I have already bought a domain let’s say off godaddy (e.g: johnshouse.com). When building my Wix site will it allow me to use a domain I already own that’s not from Wix? Or will it charge me an extra fee to do this?

    Hi Greg. Thanks for the video, very easy to follow, nice and clear. I have a question for ya. I already have a WIX website that is live but I'd like to change the theme of it. Can I change the theme of a live website without any formatting issues etc. Im afraid that when I change the theme it is going to go crazy and mess up all my formatting. Any help greatly appreciated.

    I live in Oregon, USA. I've created a website that describes my services and pricing for my future business. I am not taking any orders and do not make money, just getting information of those who would be interested through Wix Forms. Is it OKAY/LEGAL for me to publish my website, that talks about my services/prices and collects info of those interested through submitted Wix Forms, of my future business? Thank you.

    To put it more simply: I made a free website with Wix and is it legal to publish it when my website has information on my future services/business?

    I spent a few hours starting to create my site using the first option (where the ADI starts it off for you) and was extremely confused. One search later, I found this video, chose the correct starter option, and I'm no longer confused. I could've wasted even more countless hours if it weren't for you! Thank you!

  • Reply Arizona Family Church September 15, 2019 at 4:02 am

    Dear Greg,
    Thank you for your video. I tried for several years to get a website up and running for my church, for local member use (advertise programs, connect members to each other–each family has one page on the site with all their info and a picture), and for people nationally to click on the site to learn something about the AZ church. There is a public area and a password-protected area for members, where the personal info is. I tried to get funding for a particular company I wanted to use, and the church decided to go with WIX because there was a young man in our congregation who knew how to set up a website using that. He set up the website but does not want to run it. That falls to me. But I know NOTHING about WIX. The other company had 24/7 tech support. WIX does not. I have had the young man come over a few times, but he cannot do it for free. I don't learn well from sites or books, but if shown, I can usually get it. I watched your video. At first, you went slow and did one thing at a time. Then you started going faster and combining things you were doing and I got lost. If you are making a "beginner" video, may I suggest you do one thing at a time, slow enough that one can see what you are doing–even showing it twice or more, to make sure the person gets it. Maybe start with a few things. And practice it over again. I will never complain about it being too elementary or such. People who complain about that can click on the advanced courses! Does WIX have any classroom learning? I am in Tempe, AZ, near Phoenix. Thanks again.

    Thank you for putting up such a great tutorial. I am looking at wix to create multiple sites for different clients as a freelancer, hence a few questions:
    1. when I pay $14, does that mean that I can create mutiple website for different clients in that month and publish it separately on different host names on the same cost? or do you recommend creating separate logins for different customers, but that would cost $14 for each client to me…
    2. Is there a multilingual support
    3. how can we add local payment methods through local banks? for example: IDEAL for ABN AMRO in NL.. or SOFORT or any other payment methods?
    4. Does Wix give you an option for reviewing and filter the user comments and before it actually publishes on the website?
    Kindly help to answer the above to decide if I should go with Wix or if you recommend any other website creation tool.. for the same..

    Hi Greg, thank you, I created my wonderful site !!! 
    I would have a question, i spent hours for searching the solution….NO WAY !!!. Are you the only one can help ?
    The previsualization image, associate to my site address (when i write it on messenger for exemple), is wrong and absolutely not representativ of my site. I can't find the way to change it. The WIX solution "to change the social share image for your whole site" doesn't work, the wrong image is still here. What can I do ? thank you.

    Hi Greg. Amazing editorial. Thank you. Can you please tell me how I alter text in links. I have a page with many links in a list. Some of these links come from, say, WordPress and other sites. When I am in Edit, I cannot get to the text in the link. How do I do this please, to edit the text in the link? I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you 🙂
