Wix App Market

Websitewix.com/about/app-market
Launch DateOctober, 2012

In October 2012 Wix.com launched an all new App Market enabling the integration of third party applications to the Wix website builder. Wix’ newly opened SDK lets app developers create and offer web apps to Wix’ previously untapped user-base of more than 40 million people around the globe.

The integration of third party applications to Wix’ HTML5 websites enables the company to best cater to the needs of website owners in all business categories. The apps, requiring no downloads or technical knowledge, are tailored to flawlessly fit into Wix websites and further enhance their functionality.

This marks an exponential growth in Wix’ capabilities by creating an almost limitless set of features, all complementing the easy to use drag and drop web design platform. The Wix App Market also presents a tremendous opportunity for app developers to generate revenue from the massive audience of Wix website owners, an audience which is growing at a rate of 1.0 million more a month.
