  • I would definitely recommend Squarespace. I’ve steered a few of my friends to it recently actually. Super easy to use and because of how great their templates are you don’t have to be an art major to make a good looking website.

  • After building HTML to Flash to Wordpress to Joomla websites, I've found that the Squarespace platform makes the 'tech' virtually invisible or non-invasive so that I can concentrate on content. As websites are evolving in use and function, squarespace minimizes the 'tech creep' that can show up because designers (and clients too) think that they have to dazzle end users with a bunch of widgets. Nowadays, end users just want the facts presented in an attractive, clean, and efficient manner.

  • I recommend it highly. Beautiful design components snd no plug-ins to update. You can use code but don’t have to.

    Like anything else you need to make an investment to figure out the pieces and how they work together.

  • I’m please with commerce on Squarespace although i wish the checkout area was more customizable. But i’ve learned to work around that with code and plugins.

    I’m creating my fourth site now using squarespace so i assume i like it. ;)

  • love squarespace but I no longer use it for ecommerce since I’ve been selling through Etsy. I have used it for ecommerce in the past and it was great. Now there’s no point in having both Etsy and squarespace for selling

  • It’s ok. It’s the only store front I’ve ever used and I don’t sell very much. But, I think it’s easy to use. I would recommend it.

  • we are using Squarespace and would say it is user friendly. We do our event management though another company.

  • Squarespace isn’t great for ecommerce but can be integrated with third party stuff. Shopify has it down better for actual storefront but I don’t do a lot of ecommerce clients.

  • would recommend it! I only wish they offered the shop now feature that shopify offers for instagram.

  • we picked squarespace for it's ability to display large format pictures that I needed for my business.The support when issues come up has been good with responses usually in the same day.

  • Squarespace is very usable for ecommerce, but it's definitely not designed for it. Their ecom support gets better all the time and I won't be switching away from it. However, because Sqaurespace wasn't created with the sole purpose of ecommerce, a lot of the time it feels like you have to use workarounds for things that are standard on other platforms. Squarespace has the most beautiful templates, in my opinion, but for ease of use, I'd probably recommend Shopify to newcomers.

  • I would recommend Squarespace for ecommerce, definitely. The sites and shops are easy to build, and anytime I’ve run into a problem or have a question the help desk is quick to respond, polite, and thorough.

  • we don't currently sell any product directly through SquareSpace, but I can say that many of my peers do and love the process. It's very straight-forward, and the support is outstanding.

  • I would recommend it in general, though I can't say TOO much about the ecommerce aspect of it since we only sell gift certificates on it. Works well for that!

    Flag
  • We're using it, and we're happy with it!

    We'd definitely recommend it (and do recommend it all the time to friends and businesses who are looking into starting an online store).

  • I would recommend it. Especially with the integrated shopping cart, many people find 2-step carts (ones that remove you from the site and take you to sign up at Paypal very annoying, and you could lose a sale...) The templates are simple, I've never had an issue. Definitely worth the $.

  • I would recommend Squarespace for ecommerce but only because they’ve added PayPal as an option. They use stripe to collect funds and I’ve lost multiple sales because stripe flags cards often and for no reason. I’m sure there are many fraudulent attempts but I managed to reach out to some of my lost sales (one being a cousin of mine) and as soon as they switched credit cards the transaction was approved

  • I do like Squarespace and the commerce part has been fairly straight forward.

  • I would recommend Squarespace. They have many great add-ins which expand the benefit of the tool. this is much more user friendly than Wordpress. the multiple prebuilt templates also make shifting the look of the website easier. the downside is it doesn't have a direct google/amazon ecommerce plug in.

  • I recommend Squarespace for e-commerce to those who have to have a dependable commerce solution set-up rapidly and easily. I literally had my merch page accepting funds in about 3 minutes, as opposed to using a wordpress solution like Woocomernce, which takes a lot longer for an amateur to set-up, in addition to setting up the payment processing method.

  • I find it useful when I elect to use it and highly recommend square space to others. It's been an easy and effective platform for me.

  • I have it set up for ecommerce, which I did myself with little experience. It was doable! I ended up not ever really using it, as most people registered for events ,etc. through other methods, but I never anticipated any problems with it.

  • its great deal for small businesses. Works great, I get hits from all over the planet and its very consistent and high quality, good attitude, etc.... my tech guy does all the tech stuff but for $20 a month or whatever its pretty killer.

  • Mines a very small business that’s I do through my website so may not be good one to get feedback from but what business I do so through it, it seems to work very well for me and my needs. Easy to use for the most part without having much experience with admin functions.

  • We do like Squarespace. My business partner, Elliot, did the build out on the website but for our purposes I think it has worked really well for us. He has built some code into the website to make it a bit more custom but I know it saved a lot of time to have a template available to build on and customize. From a business side I'm able to track sales, inventory, hide products, and set taxes without having to do any coding - there are settings built in so that is really nice for people who don't want to learn code.

  • I have ecommerce websites with Squarespace and GoDaddy.

    I chose Squarespace to be new and relevant. It was easy to set up and it has a modern feel. I was going for extremely simple. I can't comment on the order processing because I haven't had a sell on the website.

    I would recommend Squarespace. I would also recommend GoDaddy.

  • Their platform seems to work properly. Weve had very few issues.

  • I would recommend it. I have recommended it to many. It is user friendly and cost effective for a small opperation like my yoga business.

    I have only used the squarespace store for private yoga sessions with individuals I meet. Most of my yoga business is done in a studio or with companies that pay me as a private contractor. With individuals squarespace gives me an easy and secure tool to track revenue. Without a tool like this people want to pay with cash or check and that requires more work in tracking on my end.

    Also, customer service from squarespace is fantastic. I have no training in IT and easily manage my website and email with Squarespace

  • I would say it’s fine. It doesn’t do everything that I’d like it to do but it’s mostly working ok for me. I’d be a weak endorser

  • I use the Squarespace interface and have no complains. It works seamlessly with Stripe (the payment portal) and easy to use.

    Flag
  • I would recommend for ease of use.

  • I would recommend Wix over Squarespace. Wix is easier and doesn’t charge the extra 2 percent fee that Squarespace does. Also, Wix costs less per month.

    I have done my other sites in Wix and would use it over Squarespace any day.

    Flag
  • so far we use it only as a catalogue (for which it works well) - but the sale doesn’t go through the site, so I’m not sure we’re a good source of information.

    Flag
  • I think it's great. Very user friendly as well.
