Wix expands its services to empower websites globally
Website building company Wix has launched “Wix Headless,” a new offering designed for developers to implement Wix’s business solutions with any tech stack across different platforms and devices. Wix Headless is the company’s first effort in opening its backend to work outside the Wix platform. The reportedly never-been-done-before offering allows developers to use composable application programming interfaces (APIs) and software development kits (SDK) to maximize the ways customers can interact with a business.
The tool allows web developers to connect multiple clients to a single Wix back-end and offer services on behalf of the same Wix backend business. This can include multiple websites, a mobile app, and a smartwatch app. Moreover, Wix Headless enables developers to use Wix in ways that weren’t previously possible, from scaling their online presences to managing multiple complex projects in one place.
Through Wix’s providers platform, developers can also connect to payment providers located in South America, North America, and Europe, without integrating multiple payment gateways. Shahar Talmi, GM Developer Platform at Wix, said: “We’re constantly advancing our business solutions on Wix, and by providing developers access to these APIs, with the ability to incorporate them into projects built on other platforms, we’re accelerating the endless possibilities presented in the web development industry.”
