You can easily transfer your Wix Website to another account whether it is a free account or a premium account. You can easily transfer it in minutes. But your URL will change when you transfer to another account. When you transfer the website, its owner also will transfer along with that. Here I am going to show you how to transfer a free Wix site and Premium Wix Site.

Site Dashboard -> Click Site Action -> Transfer Site.

If you click Transfer site, then you have to enter the New site owner’s email address. If you only want someone to work on your website, then you can invite them also. After entering the new site owner’s email address, there are 2 options are available. They are:

  • Keep my role as website manager of this site after the transfer.
  • Create a copy of this site and keep it in my account.

You can either of them or select both.

Then there will appear a box to check the information that you entered earlier. And also, you have to tick the confirmation box. After that, click “Transfer Ownership”. After that, you will get a confirmation box for the Transfer invite sent. When the transfer is complete, then you will get an email when the transfer is completed.
