Transferring a Premium site to another Wix account

To carry out a Premium plan site transfer, you need the email address of the person to whom you want to transfer the site. They will need to accept ownership via this email, in order to complete the process.
Before you begin:
Once you transfer the site, the site ownership is transferred to the new owner, and all future subscription payments are managed by the new owner. You can choose to simply add someone as a collaborator instead of transferring ownership. Learn more in Roles and Permissions.

To transfer a Premium site:

  1. Go to your site's dashboard.
  2. Click the Site Actions icon at the top of the Home page.
