Unfortunately, Barcart is not compatible with Wix due to Wix’s platform restrictions on external checkout options.
That said, if you have a Wix site, there are alternative solutions that can be implemented without having to replace your entire website.
To use Barcart, you’ll need to set up a separate page(s) with a different website builder and host it at a subdomain of your main website (e.g. shop.yourbrand.com).
Here are some examples of our other clients who have run into the same issue. In these examples, the main website is powered by Wix, while the “Buy Now” call-to-action leads to a non-Wix website that’s hosted at a subdomain of the main website.
Here are our recommended options for building a page to host your Barcart buttons:
- Wordpress: Wordpress is the most cost-efficient, light-weight path forward (free plans available) and is also a very flexible platform. It may require more development/design-knowledge to build a website, but there are also many templates available online.
- Additional Option: For a more user-friendly, drag-and-drop design option, you can evaluate Elementor - which is a paid Wordpress plug-in that makes it easier to design websites for non-developers.
- Webflow: Webflow is a more modern and popular website builder that is relatively affordable and comes with tools that make it easier for non-developers to design a website. (Developers often like working with Webflow, as well.)
- Squarespace: Squarespace is often the choice for non-developer/designers who want to spin up a good-looking website quickly, but it is less flexible than the above two options. It’s worth considering if the above two options aren’t right for you for some reason.
- Shopify: Shopify is the most capable platform in terms of ecommerce features and integrations. It also is relatively easy to spin up a simple shop and the only platform that Barcart has a direct integration with. Note that Barcart’s Shopify integration requires a Barcart Pro subscription ($299/month).
- Bevshop: Barcart offers a service to build Shopify-based websites for our clients. (See here for a sample.) There are additional costs involved, including a $1,500 set up fee and potentially ongoing maintenance costs unless you take over the shop after we build it.
