    WordPress vs Wix.com opinions
    This alternative is disputed. WordPress is still a legitimate alternative to Wix.com, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    @Guest Wix and Wordpress have to do with each other: if you use one of the Wordpress ecommerce plugin. You can achieve the nearly the same with Wordpress and Wix.

    CMS like WordPress is what called webbuilder in the past. It is more flexible than Wix and other web-service webbuilders both in feature and hosting requirements (we are not locked to one provider) and in development procedure (we can do dev-test-production staging).

    Wordpress is a CMS (content edition), not a website builder like Wix (visual editor)

    Wordress in 2K19 is so great app to use! Now they have Gutenberg version and drag-and-drop module. These features make WP easy for non-web-developers, but ordinary people, who just want to create their own webpresence. So I can say that WP now is really a good alternative to WIX. Plus WP is free.
