What is a "regular site" to you? You can always design a similar website and then copy and paste the data over if the site isn't too big.
I bought a company that sold its' products on a Wix site and had a guy remake the site for me using a similar looking WP theme just like @Zwielicht is suggesting.
I don't think there is an automated process available as I looked pretty hard back when I got the site.
I agree with @BassTrackerBoats and @Zwielicht that the best option is manually copying out the content and then either getting someone like @yachi to design it for you in wordpress to look exactly the same OR just pick a similar looking theme.
And I know this isnt useful info, but for everyone else, this is why I always suggest to clients that they avoid sites like wix because once you start building something with them its so hard to migrate away.
The only thing i have heard of is this https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/cms2cms-wix-to-wp-migrator/
Wix of course have made it difficult as they obviously want to hold on as long as possible
Hire a pro to do it for you. You can find several here on the Hire a Freelancer section.
it's really easy to remove ads and display on own domain, the problem is bandwidth on free wix is very low and you end up having to upgrade.
Looks like Wix really does not you to export your site elsewhere, on their export help page, they say they do not support exporting your site to other platforms.
i would do manual copy-past.
in that case you can filter bad content, fix some issues (you will find it 100%)
I'm wanting to move it to a site with hosting and stuff that lets me upload stuff myself and not be limited to their bizarre limitations.
So basically anything that's not Wix, Weebly, or Squarespace.
Have you considered started a self-hosted Wordpress site?
You could use staging to make sure the site isn't down for the traffic coming in. I'd just rebuild it using WordPress and pick a similar looking
theme. That way returning customers don't get too lost in the whole ordeal. Those easy site builders just don't have the freedom a custom
site with real hosting offers. They just pull in naive business owners.
