Squarespace Review

Anthony Casalena started it all when his attempt to publish an elegantly designed website led to the creation of a site-building software that now is known as Squarespace Platform in 2003. To date, Squarespace has powered tens of thousands of websites for clients of all sorts including professionals and personal bloggers. Timelessness, creativity and customer delight are the core values of the company. These values have been delivered so well that publications such as the Washington Post, the Financial Times, Business Week, TechCrunch and the Wall Street Journal have recognized Squarespace as a recommendable service provider.

Squarespace incorporates drag-and-drop controls, giving users an easy way to make navigation and content placement changes. “Rapid on-site editing” allows the admin to make changes themselves, without having to call your web designer.

It doesn’t matter whether you are starting your online store or whether you already have a well-established store. Squarespace can help you grow your business with its tools and features.

From eCommerce templates to product and service sales to scheduling and payment methods, Squarespace offers a complete package with all the necessary tools to run your online store smoothly.

Branding & Marketing

Squarespace offers a solution for those who aren’t familiar with SEO and other tools necessary to make your website stand out and rank higher than the competition.

With Squarespace, you’ll get access to SEO tools, social media tools and even access to email marketing and video maker.

Domain Registration

You can search, buy or transfer any domain you need (so long as it’s available) through Squarespace, which saves you a lot of time.

Squarespace will give you not only a low initial cost but also an SSL certificate, WHOIS privacy included, and easy DNS management.

You can’t obtain one of these services separately. You will need to buy a full package per your needs.

  • Personal: at $11/month, you will get access to the core features, such as a free domain, SSL security, and SEO tools for visibility. You won’t, however, get access to Marketing tools and eCommerce.
  • Business: at $17/month, you will get access to everything in the Personal package, as well as all Marketing tools and some eCommerce features. Although you get to use eCommerce, you only get access to a minimal version of it and a transaction fee of 3%.
  • Basic Commerce: This plan has all of the business plan's features, a more complete version of eCommerce, and no transaction fee.
  • Advanced Commerce: This is Squarespace’s ultimate package, as it has all of its features, and costs $36/month.
