To then add the font to your site, you will need to go to the left hand site element called ‘My Uploads’. Once clicked it will show you a drop-down of the different files you can upload. For instance you can upload vector art, videos, tracks and documents from here. You will also see fonts. Click on the fonts and then the ‘Upload Fonts’ button in the top of right of the popup box. When opened find the right font on your device and open the file to upload.
Alternatively you can drag and drop the file into the window that appears when the fonts element is click within the ‘My Uploads’.

To then use your uploaded font you first must wait until the font is uploaded to your site. Once uploaded hit done of the window. To then use your font, you will find it in the font drop-down alongside all the other fonts. Highlight the text you would like to and find the right font in the drop-down. It should change your text.
Always test your font when first uploaded to make sure that it suits your site. If the font doesn’t suit your site, you may feel the need to either use a font already on WIX or find another downloadable font and complete the upload process all over again.
