Payments integration

WIX supports over 50 payment methods, including Stripe, PayPal, Square, Wirecard, 2Checkout, Moolah, Braintree, WorldPay, Fat Zebra, Leumi Card, and many more. It even has its own payment system, Wix Payments, to expedite transactions.

Magento ready payments gateways list is shorter. It accepts common payment channels such as PayPal and Braintree but does not accept CyberSource or WorldPay.

Extensions

WIX has over 200 applications and add-ons available (both free and premium). Wix stores have a variety of features, ranging from simple to complex, such as live chats, pop-ups, social network integrations, discounts, and so on. The disadvantage of Wix is the inability to add/create custom ones on the e-commerce shop.

Magento has a massive edge in this area, with over 5,000 applications and add-ons. Accounting & Finance, Marketing, Content & Customization, Customer Support, Payments & Security, Analytics, Sales, Shipping & Fulfillment, and Site Optimization are among them. Even if these modules are not created by Magento, they all come from trusted plugin vendors and must adhere to stringent guidelines and code standard testing. If none of the available extensions entirely match your requirements, you may request a bespoke module from Magento developers.

SEO

WIX Commerce includes SEO functionality. They are known as Wix SEOs, and they are sufficient to define some basic settings.

Magento platform is well-suited to SEO. Even in open source, store owners have extensive control over SEO elements such as robots, sitemap, txt XML, redirects, metadata, and many more things. SEO functionalities can be additionally expanded with plugins.
