About the B2B Site Management API

With the B2B Site Management API, strategic partners can transfer a Wix site from a source account to a target account. This allows their customers to have exactly the permissions they need, while the strategic partner retains access to the sites. Contact the Wix B2B sales team at bizdev@wix.com to learn how to become a strategic partner and which accounts are supported as source and target.

After transferring the site, strategic partners can use the Resellers API to offer paid Wix services to their customers.

Terminology

  • Wix account: A Wix account can have one or more users. Standard accounts have one user, while team accounts can have multiple users. Each account can hold multiple sites.
    • Sub-account: You can create sub-accounts for your customers. This allows you to access your customers’ sites while customers have the functionality and permissions they need.
    • Source account: The account holding the site before the transfer. Not all Wix accounts are supported as source accounts. Contact the Wix B2B sales team for more information.
    • Target account: The account holding the site after the transfer. The target account must be your main account or one of its sub-accounts.
  • Wix site: A website in an account. Sites are accessible to users according to the specific permissions they hold on the site or the entire account.
  • Paid Wix service: A service Wix offers site owners that isn’t free of charge. For example, a Website Plan, Business & eCommerce Plan, or Ascend. See Wix Premium Subscriptions for more details.

Limitations

  • Only strategic partners of Wix services can transfer sites. Contact the Wix B2B sales team at bizdev@wix.com to learn how to become a strategic partner and which accounts are supported as source and target.
  • You can transfer a site only to your main account or one of its sub-accounts. It isn’t possible to transfer a site to an unrelated account. Contact the Wix B2B sales team for more information.
  • Only sites that don’t include paid Wix services can be transferred. After transferring the site, you can use the Resellers API to offer paid Wix services to your customers.
  • The ID of the target account can't be passed in the body of the Transfer Site call. It must be specified in the header.
