Getting too many emails

You can control what emails you receive from the site by adjusting your account settings.

Logon, goto profile, then settings and adjust what you want to receive.

To stop the Wix marketing emails go into one of the emails and click 'If you wish to unsubscribe click here.' 

A small number of people are trying to login without setting up an account. 

If when logging on you get a message something like email not recognised or account does not exist or an site error please ensure you have already created an account. To create an account follow the link sent to you in an email from Wix on 3rd of May inviting you to become a site member. Alternatively you can Sign up via the Log In button on the top right of the screen and click Sign up. 

This a completely new Website. 

Cannot find the Wix invite email.

If you cannot see the Wix invite email please look in the usual places, junk, spam etc if you still cannot find it then you should talk to your email provider as Wix did send them out. As life is too short to wait on a help line for hours just try resetting your password via the website. Your IDs have been created. The Wix email has a link to follow so is the easiest way to activate your ID.
