Great for basic online users

5.0 2 months ago New

Pros:

I like that I can create a professional looking website without needing to know much about website development. It's customizable and is hard to mess up your website.

Cons:

When Squarespace came out with it's membership community, I wanted to switch my subscribers to members, but there is no way to transfer their billing without asking all of my subscribers to resign up with their card, which is impossible to do. I would love to be able to use the Squarespace members areas for my subscribers, but I don't see it being possible without being able to transfer their payments to members area.

Squarespace: elegant and user-friendly website builder:

5.0 last month New

Comments: Overall, Squarespace is a great option for anyone looking to create a professional-looking website without any coding experience. The elegant design and user-friendly interface make it easy to create a visually appealing website, and the comprehensive features make it suitable for a wide range of needs. While the higher price point may be a drawback for some users, the excellent customer support and comprehensive features may make it worth the investment for many.

Pros:

Elegant design: Squarespace offers a wide range of beautifully designed templates that make it easy to create a visually appealing website.User-friendly interface: Squarespace has a simple and intuitive interface that makes it easy for users to navigate and make changes to their website.Excellent customer support: Squarespace offers excellent customer support through email, chat, and phone, making it easy for users to get help when they need it.

Cons:

Higher price point: Squarespace is more expensive than some other website builders, which may not be feasible for all users but since we work with different e-commerce company they don't mind with what they pay.

Pros:

I appreciate how Squarespace's user-friendliness exposed me to site design. Wix and templates are both excellent products, and they are also fierce rivals.

Cons:

The fact that the Squarespace template forbade any revisions particularly irked one of my coworkers who will be taking over for me. He got in touch with Squarespace, and they helped him break the template.

Squarespace Review by Mike Tonga

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Although there have been some cons towards Squarespace, my overall experience has been great. One of the best features of the software, is its price. Unlike other software programs that require loads of money to start off or to go premium, Squarespace provides a suitable price that all small businesses can manage. The websites that can be made from this software look great if made correctly and function as any website would.

Pros:

One of the main things I liked about this was its user-friendly interface, which made it easier to make the website. Another would be the wide variety of templates offered.

Cons:

The only disadvantage of this software is the lack of customizability given to the creator of the website. You can only customize the templates preset rows. Plus the fact that it cannot autosave, but will suggest you to manually save after changes.

Great design features but need more e-commerce support

4.0 2 months ago New

Comments: I enjoy using Squarespace. If the e-commerce features are more competitive, it would be a perfect website builder!

Pros:

Squarespace is amazing for putting together an attractive, professional website in no time. Having used various website builders over the years, I'd say Squarespace is the most beginner-friendly. The website templates are beautiful and very easy to edit - no coding or design skills required! Because of Squarespace's extensive customisable design elements, it is best for portfolio websites - where stylish layout is important and you don't need advanced e-commerce features. And being one of the most established website builder platforms around, you can also trust that your website will be secure.

Cons:

Squarespace isn't so great in terms of e-commerce integration. For example, it lacks the infrastructure to create useful shipping options (e.g. free delivery over £50), which should be an essential e-commerce feature. If you're looking to build an online store, I wouldn't recommend Squarespace.
