Introduction

The Activity Counters service allows site owners and third-party developers to keep track of Wix site members' activity. See "Integrations" below for Wix App activities that are already counted.

The service allows public and private counters:

  • Public counters can be read by any site member.
  • Private counters can only be accessed by the site member who owns the counter.

The Activity Counters API gives third-party developers access to the counters on a site at a per-member, per-app level.

Counters are only activated when a site member actually performs the activity the counter tracks.

This means that the query and list endpoints for this API may return a large number of results, for sites with many members.

Integrations
