Pros: Simple layouts and ease of making edits and adding images.
Price for subscription is fair.
Offers online marketing campaigns as part of your fees

Cons: We haven't come across to many. We are working on integrating shipping and our Square Store so this may pose a problem.

Pros: Live Chat Customer Service is the BEST. They will screencast a custom movie of exactly your issue and how to fix it through your own website backdoor. Beautiful templates and they are always adding more.

Cons: I've had formatting issues and depending on the template, I am unable to create the design I am looking for.

Overall: Made quite a bit of money from selling their websites to clients as well as being able to much more easily optimize them because I understand the branding as well as the build.

I absolutely love Squarespace! Best decision ever to switch to such a user-friendly platform.

Pros: The ease of use and the amazing customer service are the two things I love most about Squarespace! I have been able to build a gorgeous website and update it regularly without having to know a single bit of code!

Cons: It's really hard to find anything negative about this software. I have loved it since day 1 and continue to be impressed by its functionality and features.

Pros: For the price and the enormous selection of beautiful, mobile-responsive themes, the incredible value and user-friendly interface is the best out of their competitors, in my opinion. Their WYSIWYG makes it incredibly easy to use, even without any development or design experience. Anyone can have a website with Squarespace.

Cons: Literally the thing I like least is their spacing tool. Sometimes I can't precisely place things in the center or where I want them exactly.

Overall: If you're new to websites but want to get started fast, Squarespace is a great way to build the website you want, with a minimal learning curve. Without ever having used the service, a solid day of practice and I was comfortable with the software.

Seemed like really well designed website building software.

Pros: Focused on design so it had many good fonts and minimal bold layouts. An easy way to get a quick website up.

Cons: I didnt want to learn a new system so I ultimately decided not to use it. For the right project though I may give it a chance again.

Overall: Seemed like a good choice for the future for website building.

Pros: This is such a powerful website creation platform that anyone can use, regardless of your industry or business size. Plus, it's beautiful, easy to navigate, packed with all the right features you need (page navigation, embedded features, analytics, e-commerce, etc..). Plus, it's extremely cheap given the alternative of custom building a website, hiring a graphic designer, and then waiting for all that to be done. Can't say enough about how impressed I am with this platform.

Cons: At times, you're limited by our own creativity or experiences when trying to setup your website on your own. There is a learning curve to figuring out how to make the site do what you want it to do based on your creative abilities or how the drag and drop features work. This is also a benefit, but takes a bit to learn how to get things to turn out how you have them in your mind.

Overall: I recommend this product all the time to other small nonprofits and anyone trying to launch a creative idea because of it's immediacy, ease of use, professional abilities, and cost. So many features packed into an affordable website solution pack.

I haven't actually fully used it yet, but I am planning on it!

Pros: I have been looking into different web platforms, and Squarespace has been both the one I have heard the best things about from most people I have talked to, and having researched on my own in the process, it appears to be one of the top options, from the look to the usability you can have with it, I am sold on it.

Cons: I have heard there are others that may be a little cheaper, but it also seems like the quality that I like about squarespace will go down with that price dip. But it doesn't seem super expensive compared to others either.

Pros: - Very nice templates that look professionally designed/developed.
- QUICK to get going and start adding content to your website.
- Compared to other offerings, a great editing/content layout interface.
- If your website is a storefront, you have good control over each product's specs regarding price, descriptions, pictures, dimensions for shipping, etc. I found it very easy to input and manage products I sold on my website
- EASY setup for calculating shipping shipping costs that make sense for the products you ship.
- Creating coupons for promotions is easy and simple. They can be created for individuals or for more broad scope.
- Squarespace was clearly developed for people who do not have time to know the ins and outs of web development, and that's a huge value to people who need to manage a modest website without a full-blown marketing and web team.

Cons: - Cost
- For a novice, it's to discern why one template behaves so differently than another for certain types of design changes, and that can be very confusing when trying to edit page and add content. Each template caters to certain types of design changes and content. Which can be frustrating if this is not understood. As long as this is understood or perceived, frustration with the content creation process will be minimal.
- Cost: There is a price for such polish with appearance and creation interface. If you go for a website storefront where you will have more than one product you are selling, other website hosting offerings will be cheaper. The trade off is potentially less user-friendly user interface, ease of customization, less website template polish, at the tradeoff of monthly cost.
- Customization: Simple content management and changes are easy and quick with SquareSpace's interface. However, if you want to do more advanced or specific design customizations/layouts that fall outside of their design, you may find SquareSpace limiting.

Overall: SquareSpace helped me get my web storefront up in less than a week, including design, logos, images, content, products, and shopping cart interface and shipping options ironed out. I recommend SquareSpace to anyone who wants a nice looking website thats easy to create and manage.

Pros: Our business is centered around getting people outside, enjoying their time on the water and hopefully helping them to learn some interesting stuff along the way. We pride ourselves in going above and beyond for our customers and anticipating what they'll need or ask for while onboard. So when we were shopping around for a new web host, it was actually fun to find out that Squarespace takes the same approach. Even better was discovering how easy Squarespace is to use. Look, we're outdoorsy boat and water and nature and wildlife people, not coders. Squarespace makes it easy for us to tell customers our story. Super easy to include photos, video clips and imagery. Quick and reliable integrations with online booking, payment systems and social media. Could not be happier!

Cons: There are a couple quirks involving text formatting for drop down boxes that can expand and collapse (like are often seen on FAQ pages). Overall though, this is such a minor issue for us it's hardly worth mentioning. Plus, I've heard Squarespace is aware of it and is working on a solution. One of the great things about Squarespace is that they not only seek feedback from customers, they actually listen and respond!

Cons: It was slightly more expensive than I wanted to pay for a website developer software, especially since I wanted to create my own personal website. I also had a bit of difficulty for customization.

Overall: I will probably switch to using Squarespace, since it really is so simple to manage your website.

Adding blocks to build websites is easy also customization pages and div¿s is also pretty easy. And with the space block, we can very quickly add vertical or horizontal padding to content.

Cons: Limited options when you have to use it for website personalization real time marketing content.

Most of the themes give websites a "template like look" would like to see more innovative themes.

Overall: easy software building for early to mid market companies.

Comments: You get a quality, well-designed site easily with minimal technical expertise. I'm no HTML wizard but I've made two good-looking websites easily.

Pros: Templates, editability, ease of set-up, integrated e-commerce, easy access to good stock photos, wide variety of typefaces and styles.

Cons: You do need to know what you are doing more than with some of the really simple website builders, but that is how you get more quality because you are not constrained by the pre-set formats.

Pros: The task of creating my own website was a daunting one when I first set out, but this software is so incredibly easy to use! I was able to create a website I am proud of in no time! They have amazingly descriptive step by step instructions on some of the more difficult aspects of design and integration. Best of all their customer service blows me away which is extremely rare in this day and age. They respond in less than 24 hours and the last person I connected with even created a custom video for me to help with something I later felt dumb for even asking. There is not a single thing that I could think of that this software is lacking. Very happy with my decision to use it and it is worth every single penny.

Cons: There really isn¿t anything I¿ve come across that i don¿t like about this software and I really looked. As with any software I pay monthly for I was definitely looking for a reason not to spend but they have given me none. Everything from design to ease of use has seriously been more than I could ask for and the fact that their customer service department is on point has me sold for life. I guess the only con that I could even think of would be that it costs any money at all, but you really get what you pay for where this software is concerned.

Pros: Squarespace user interface is superior to anything I have used before or have used since. Recently our company stopped using Squarespace and I SO WISH THEY WOULD GO BACK! There are endless options on how to make your web pages dynamic. The absolute best thing is that how you create and move forward in making pages is very intuitive.

Cons: I can not give you one con about using this software, I would recommend this to anyone, whether you know what your doing or are a small mom and pop shop wanting to have a web page for your business. I promise you can do it with this software!

Cons: I didn't like the cost because I had built all of my other websites on free WP. Any developer I have hired since I used SS only built in WP so that was always interesting to me too.

Pros: Squarespace is a great choice for artists who know what they want . The templates look professional and clean, not amatuerish and clunky. The customizations that you can run in the Code Injection area ie: google analytics and Facebook Pixel tracking are great.

Cons: I wish I could combine templates without having to hire a developer and lose support. If you customize too deeply, Squarespace eventually can't help - which makes sense. I just wish there was more customization overall.

Overall: 1. Continuous Service - is rarely down
2. Cool looking templates - my content looks great!
3. Awesome integrations are easy to set up - Google Adwords, Adsense, Pixel, all wonderful and important for a modern website.
4. Support always answers my dumb emails really quickly

Pros: Squarespace provides stunning templates and a full range of customizability allowing me to get whatever i want or need out of their service. For a couple of clients the squarespace templates work just fine, but with their developer mode, when i need to make more specific changes to a site, or build it from the ground up, anything is possible.

Cons: There is little to no support or information about their developer mode. If you want to use it you are mainly on your own to figure things out.

Overall: Cool templates that allow me to quickly put together beautiful websites, and a full range of customizability from the developer mode that allows me to make whatever i want.

Pros: Squarespace is easy to use with a low learning curve and lots of available resources for using the software. The website templates are modern, easy to install and switch out. The drag and drop visual editor makes customizing your site a breeze. Customer service is very responsive.

Cons: The templates are beautiful but they are limited and currently (at the writing of this review) most of the templates contain parallax scrolling so they all look similar. I'd like to see the variety of templates increased.

Overall: Squarespace is an easy-to-use platform for creating modern websites that are both beautiful and easy to navigate.

Pros: The key advantage of the squarespace interface is the way it is designed to sit behind/beside your site so you can really easily edit, preview and navigate without getting lost or confused. For me, this is one of the key things that makes a good CMS.

Another important factor is how well you can do in-place editing, i.e. changing the content while you're looking at the page rather than in a separate form somewhere. It works really well, even with the more complex features like grid elements and text formatting etc.

All these things are important for our team as the day to day editing is done by noon web-savvy people. However, we also need the occasional tweak from a web developer, and the ability add custom CSS and HTML snippets makes this a doddle.

Cons: If I could pick any fault it would probably be the ecommerce aspects. Whilst comprehensive enough for many different types of product, the configuration possibilities are ultimately limited and you might find yourself wanting more options for how you display products for instance.

Pros: The overall design is amazing, you have a ton of different templates to choose. But the most important part is the ease of use, which enables almost anyone to build websites. Even for us, developers, it's a great way to deliver something faster with great quality. I strongly recommend it to everyone.

Cons: I think it could be cheaper, but the most important thing I believe they need to implement is multi language support.

Pros: I love the number of templates offered. Squarespace's design team really took the time to create different templates that work for any kind of business/hobby.

Cons: Although their design features/style editor does entail a lot of options, I wish it was organized better. Instead of clicking on a page to edit, you have to backtrack out of the page section and go into the style editor. It would be easier if it was in one place. Secondly, I wish the resizing of images on a page worked easier.

Easy website building.

Pros: It was super easy to use and didn't overwhelm me . Most template websites almost require some graphic design experience or is way to simple and boring looking. Squarespace is right in the middle!

Cons: I wish it was easier to find out how to do more advanced things. If you dig deep enough you can find it, but the organization makes it hard to even know to look there in the first place.

Overall: It looks clean and professional even though I did it myself

Pros: It is very easy to use, great simple editor to design your pages but still has great quality. I also use the ecommerce section which is also very simple to use and easy to setup.

Cons: The preview of pages is sometimes not as accurate as viewing the actual page in your browser, I have to open the web page in a separate window to see my changes.

Pros: I used this to create a website for my friend's business and it was easy to get started. Lots of great looking template designs to choose from. Added bonus is that they are all mobile responsive, so no need to make changes once you've invested time building the desktop website. Easy to add in different content 'modules' so you can display things like sliders, video and image galleries. Also easy to adjust things like fonts and sidebar width etc.

Cons: The number of design choices you have can be overwhelming and I found myself wasting quite a bit of time trying to choose between options. Also we later found that Squarespace isn't very SEO friendly, which has made it hard to generate traffic to the website from Google.

Pros: It is very easy and fast to create simple websites with Squarespace as long as one of their layouts fits your needs. The pages load fairly quickly. The customer support team gets back to you pretty quickly.

Cons: The templates are limited in what they can do and third party integration is usually a major pain to set up. Creating anything that is not in the basic templates take a lot of work and time as well as some CSS and scripting skills. I have not seen any updates to the feature set since I have been using it. Without having any new add-ons or features I fear that my site will get old. They charge way too much for domain names.

Pros: Easy to edit, pretty intuitive to use. I had a webdesigner set up my squarespace account for me and he gave me a crash course on it.

Cons: Not as customizable as say Wordpress. Sometimes certain things such as publishing a blogpost is a bit tough to format with images.

Overall: Easy to run website

Squarespace is great for developing better UX, and it still keeps full developer capabilities.

Pros: The control on the developer side. It allows for great UX and still maintains easy navigation. Also, the ecommerce side is great and hassle-free.

Cons: I wish there were more plug-in type options, but I'm sure those are coming soon. I also wish you could add team members per account, not just per website.

Overall: Ease of use and quicker build times.

Pros: It's an easy way for every small business owner looking to sell their products and services immediately online. Very nice and clean templates to use. Plus, online support is excellent so that help is just a chat away.

Cons: Might take a while for beginners to navigate all the options. Customization is limited if you want to really personalize your site. Square Space made websites have that same similar look somehow.

Overall: We were able to deliver a number of fully functional e-commerce website to clients in mere days and it's gotten us a good reputation of being able to deliver on time, every time and with a really great clean design.

Pros: Squarespace stands out from some of the other DIY website building tools. Quality. That's the one word that really encapsulates my experience thus far.

The theme selection has some nice gems. Even the "bad" Squarespace themes are decent.

Editing photos and text content is handled quite nicely in the backend. For basic editing, they've made things incredibly straightforward. Easy to navigate. Nice animations. The on-page editing is also a big plus.

Setting up a podcast in Squarespace is also quite easy. I haven't used Squarespace for ecommerce, but I assume it's equally easy to get going.

Cons: Surprisingly, customization is not Squarespace's strong suite. At times, even achieving what would seem to be a minor customization proves to be very difficult.

The platform certainly gives you the tools to customize as needed, but you go from "extremely easy" to "pretty tricky" faster than you might expect.

As much as I enjoyed using Squarespace, it turned out being more difficult to use than I anticipated. When you're happy to use what's readily available through the theme you've chosen, things go smoothly. Once you have a specific feature or layout in mind, it can be difficult to bend Squarespace to your will.

Pros: I was able to use Squarespace to quickly put together a personal website that looked extremely clean and had a bare minimum of complicated set up. I got numerous compliments on the quality of the site despite having no experience with website building or design.

Cons: Some of the menu options are not as intuitive to find as I might like. The best example is when I needed to add different menu headings on the site (I.e., About Me, FAQ, etc.): it¿s located under ¿Pages,¿ which does make a degree of sense, but it¿s not the most intuitive and I constantly forgot how to get there. Also, to my memory, while the analytics page was good, it didn¿t allow you to filter for custom dates, instead being last month, last week, etc.

Pros: If you want to make a professional website that looks great on any platform without having to pay a web developer hundreds of dollars, this is the option for you. Incredibly easy to use and comes with everything you need! The customer support is amazing too. Call them any time and they'll help you out with anything you need! I was very impressed with the support.

Overall: I wanted to set up a quick and easy website to use as a portfolio showcasing my work and this was bar none the best option I could find. It has everything I need in a neat and tidy package for a really great cost! I will likely be using it again in the future for other websites I will need to build. I am very, very impressed!

Pros: The ease of use is the best aspect. You don't need any web development knowledge whatsoever because the software does everything (like SSL, responsiveness, hosting, etc.).

Cons: Compared to using a (free) simple HTML template and learning a little bit about hosting etc. Squarespace might be a little bit too expensive for people who are open to learn a little bit about websites. We tried it but got back to our own self-managed website.

Pros: Customer gets one year paid subscription of G suite and it gives cutting edge logo which a business can ever expect. After working with a development team which uses this product for my company, I feel it is best product available in market.

Cons: However there are few cons like customer support is not very good and the product is priced on higher side. It lacks some basic features offered by blogger and drupal.

Overall: It provides preloaded templates which reduces the time of development for the professional website. It also has a starter plan which provides twenty pages for the website which are pretty enough for a basic professional website. Google services makes it easy publishing website and the newsletters are easy to mail by Gmail for professional.

Pros: There has been so much advancement in the product since I started using it for my clients. It has 4 perfect plans whose pricing fits to the needs of customers. I have never seen professional templates included like squarespace in the plan itself. It gives solution to accounting needs of website admin with xero. It has also given G suite which serves many tasks such as editing and keeping track of subscribers and many more web analytics things. It has a perfect logo designer for which I love it the most.

Cons: It does not keep track of editing history. Howeverit is not much a need for those who don't want to keep track but it is pretty useful at times for developers. There are no sidebars for some templates which is irritating and videos are not supported by all type of devices.

Overall: We have satisfied many clients with thus software and it is handy for professional websites. You can not get so perfect logo designer from any other cms as provided by them. With xero and g suite included it is becoming favourite of some knowledgeable people. The customizations are very easy and our clients feel that they are getting things done in time. However there are no perfect answers provided by it's support to queries.

Pros: SquareSpace has unparalleled customer support. I've never had faster, better executed chat support with any company. Every time I have a problem or a question, the chat support team quickly steps up to the plate. It's really quite impressive.

The design platform for building websites is also quite good. As a web design novice, I was worried about the fit and finish of my project. Fortunately, SquareSpace's templates are brilliant. I am thrilled to say our finished site looks even better than we could have hoped, and without the huge cost of custom web design and hosting.

Cons: Squarespace is flexible, but it is also limited. Some of the functionality that seems like a no-brainer, such as recurring payments and more complex code integration, is not possible out of the box. Third-party tools can services can be used to achieve these features, but at added cost and without the same seamless experience that SquareSpace prides itself on. If they open up the platform to more integrated solutions, I will have no complaints at all.

Overall: Squarespace lets us build and host a good looking website without the significant time and resource cost as custom development.

Pros: Easy for anyone to use immediately, even if you have no previous experience with making websites. Squarespace has significantly reduced the activation energy required for putting your concepts, ideas, and businesses on the web.

Cons: Most squarespace websites look fairly similar, making it harder to stand out. Works for most standard websites that are informational, but if you want complex functionality that requires more custom coding novices will still be over their heads.

Overall: Easiest website I've ever made.

Pros: I love that you do not need any web editing training to use Squarespace. It is incredible user friendly and anyone that knows how to use a computer and basic web browser could learn how to use Squarespace.

Cons: While this is great for beginners, it doesn't have many advanced features. For instance, it has a calendar, but there's no way to set recurring events. From the outside it looks great and is easy to use but once you want to customize things, it becomes very difficult.

Overall: We get a well designed, user friendly web interface for our organization.

Comments: Squarespace makes making a nice looking website simple. BUT, they've been around for years and actively resist improvements suggested by customers. Want to password protect content or make a members site? Nope, find a way to rig it or go elsewhere. Want to drip content? Nope. Want to integrate with marketing automation? Nope. For a system that started out so nice to use, it's extremely limited and the otherwise friendly company seems to truly ignore suggestions from their customer base.

Pros: Simple to set up a working site.

Cons: Not a lot of features, and virtually no expansion for several years now.

Recommendations to other buyers: Research first. Be sure it has the features you need now and in the future. Once you get to a point where your site is built and you've put years of effort in, you may end up feeling a bit stuck.

I am not the primary designer that set up the sight, but it is much easier than old solutions of using software like Dreamweaver and FTP software to save HTML pages and upload changes.

Cons: I still don't feel like I totally understand how to build a site from scratch if necessary. The software is powerful, but a bit too complex for me to create something from nothing. Thankfully, other employees are responsible for creating the design of the pages themselves

Overall: Ease of updating our company website as an employee with no HTML/Web Design skills.

My wife and I started a wedding videographer business and Squarespace is perfect for us. Having a background in working in digital marketing and advertising agencies, Squarespace was foreign to me because we typically built on WordPress or Drupal. But now that I've discovered SS, I'll never go back.

Whether it's creating new pages, blog content, or changing headers and copy for SEO purposes - I'd suggest to every creative to start with SS as their CMS.

Cons: Could use more functionality.

I'm not a coder, and I never will be. BUT, I can say there were times in the past when I was helping write for WordPress site when I could insert a plug-in or have a developer edit the site to our liking.

Apparently something like 20% of the Internet is built on WordPress, and I don't doubt that. SS lacks the enormous community that WP users have as well as a million plug-ins and themes to choose from - however I would never switch from SS because it will always support my lack of "coderness" I need to be able to properly build a beautful WP site.

Overall: Beautiful themes, loads of forums and admin articles when I'm in a bind, there is not a CMS out there that is more user-friendly than SS.

I tried this product out for friend that was confused and having trouble using it.

Pros: Visually stunning, mobile responsive template designs that allow a TON of user-friendly, drag and drop design flexibility. My website looks like I pay 20x more than I actually do and has truly revolutionized my business! I love the form feature and the ability for my customers to contact me and fill out questionnaires based on a wide variety of different "field" options all automatically sent straight to my email.

Cons: The website editor has crashed for me often on Safari, so I had to get used to using Chrome for website editing. The form reporting also isn't the greatest, so while I do love getting form responses/reports sent straight to my email, they are sent in plain text in the email body so it makes it more difficult to gather and synchronize form results (would love PDF/spreadsheet options as well).

Overall: 15x as many inquiries as I got before using another website builder platform, customer credibility, and a LOT less stress and time wasted!

Pros: Squarespace is great for those who have no technical knowledge and just want a platform that is easy to use, looks clean and simple, and gives you a decent level of customization.

Cons: What I don't like about it is I wish that I could customize it more and ticker around with the templates and pages. Squarespace does a good job of baby-proofing their system so that you don't accidentally break your website. But as a front-end developing in training, I wish I could break it a little more.

Overall: Easy to setup my website and get an online presence, with SSL.

Comments: Ecommerce function is lame. Also wish the blog feature had more in common with LinkedIn than WordPress. I don't want to log into pages every d#mn time, if you know what I mean.

Pros: If you don't have any clue what you're doing or what you want, use Squarespace. It's hard to get lost when you don't have a destination in mind. If I was a restaurant, musician, or anyone else that just wanted to "get her done" I''d use this in a heartbeat... though with all the competition out there, I'd do my homework first.

Cons: If there's something that you'd like to tweak or make your own, you're pretty SOL'ed. Sure there's the opportunity to code at your own risk, but surely in 2017 we can find a true happy medium, no? Loading times were also slow which means I spent a good deal of my build time watching the circle of buffering death spin. Frustrating.

Pros: I love the ease of use. I don't know much about web design at all and I am able to use the site well. Any time time I have needed to get ahold of them, they get back right away.

Cons: When you set up your account, you can only have two users. Thus, if you want more than two people working on your website you will need to share passwords and log on info.

Overall: This software gives us a beautiful, affordable, easy to use website for our church.

Pros: I like the ability to edit and adapt easily. Once our designer set up the website, she was able to turn it over to us for use since then.

Cons: Mainly, I just wish there were more options for training and learning the software myself so that I would know all of the options.

Pros: We have been using Squarespace for several years now and at this point, it's really the only platform that I would build a website on (for my own purposes). The ease of use, the simply, clean, and well-designed templates, and the functionality is awesome, and all of this with very reasonable pricing. It's also so simple to use that any normal person (without much web knowledge) can easily maintain their own website rather than having to pay a professional to do it.

Cons: There are certain features that are lacking that you could get through other web platforms (especially shop features), but overall, these things are small in comparison with all that it does have to offer, especially for the price.

Comments: I used a competitor for creating a previous website. I wish I would have used Squarespace instead. The templates are awesome! There are so many to choose from. You can make a great website without needing extensive training or experience in website development. If you like the template the way it is, just add your content. If not, customize it to your specific needs. I love it!

Pros: Squarespace has tons of high quality templates to choose from. Each template is fully editable. They've created a platform that looks great and is easy to use. You need some tech skills, but you don't need web design experience or training to make a professional website.

Cons: If I had to pick one con, I'd have to say that I don't like the setup and format of the commerce options.

Pros: Stunning sites
High-end product
Self-adapts for mobile viewing
Integration with google
Great designs

Cons: Lack of customization on individual templates
Not enough consideration of SEO
Need to use CSS

Overall: I always used Wix in the past to build websites, however I needed a very high end look and Squarespace fit the bill.

I'll admit, at first Squarespace was difficult for me to navigate when building my homepage. However, I watched the tutorials and was able to figure it out quickly.

The final product is stunning and I didn't have to do anything to make it mobile friendly - which is a huge plus. However, with the built-in adaptability comes some trouble. You cannot fully customize everything. There were several items I wanted on the site or little tweaks I wanted to make that were not possible.

I'd hope to have a gallery style blog page, but the design I chose for the rest of the site didn't allow that. In addition, the SEO on the design I used was very difficult to get right in Google. I tried to work with customer service, however they said the only way around my issue was by building custom CSS code.

So, I taught myself to code. There are people who adapt Squarespace sites for a living, but I didn't want to pay for this.

Overall, I'm happy with the final product and clients love it. I would like to see more customization options.

Comments: Great software. Coming from a computer science background and living through the .com bubble I've had to use a multitude of software from basic HTML - Dreamweaver - flash - etc... When looking at companies to update our website I was getting crazy quotes all over the place. Looked into this, and its so simple. Took me a weekend to do the site myself, with zero programming. We dont use the ecommerce so I cant speak on that, but for everything else, amazing. Days of coding/HTML/flash/etc.. are long gone - Thankfully.

Pros: Simple to use. Super affordable. Always updating. Works in any browser/smart phone device. Getting compliments from clients on ease-of-use.

Cons: Could use more templates. No Calendar/Event/Scheduling yet. (coming soon?)

Recommendations to other buyers: Just do it, free trial, totally worth it.

Comments: Squarespace lets you build probably the most beautiful websites out of an website host. They make it easy to build your own site and set things up. However they lack a lot in the ecommerce side of things. There is no support for subscriptions even though the company they partner with for transactions (Stripe) offers them and trying to manage an online store is a nightmare if you have more than a handful of items. You are limited in the way you can create offers/discounts and calculate shipping prices. When I started using Squarespace about 3 years ago, they were about on par or ahead of their competitors when it comes to ecommerce, however over time they have neglected the ecommerce part and have fallen way behind their competitors.

Pros: Beautiful Easy to use Fast Integrates with a lot of services

Cons: Lack of modern Ecommerce features Limited in promotions/discounts you can create

Recommendations to other buyers: Squarespace is great, but I can't recommend it for a company looking to set up an ecommerce store until they catch up to their competitiors.

Cons: I struggled to figure out how to use certain features and had to poke around a bit.

Overall: I am a psychologist in solo private practice, so I didn't want or need an expensive or complex website. I was able to create a beautiful, clean, easy to use website by myself on Squarespace and had fun doing it. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to use all the features, but once I did, I was able to make my site in a few hours. I love the ability to customize nearly everything and make it my own.

Comments: I was ready to upgrade from Wix and wasn't ready for the leap of learning Wordpress. SquareSpace has been perfection. I'll admit, there is a little bit of a learning curve, but now I know how to use it I'm often impressed by its functionality.

Comments: I used Squarespace to set up a small eCommerce business at the end of last year. I purchased a domain and monthly hosting and eCommerce support from them. I've previously used other services but found Squarespace to be far superior. I got my site up and running in no time and was able to quickly integrate it with a number of other services such as Stripe, Google Suite, etc. Would recommend this to anyone looking to dip their toes in the water for starting your own site. It looks as if they have solutions for a number of needs.

Pros: - Easy setup - Integration with domain name - Support for a number of external partners - Analytics mobile app provides info on the go

Cons: - Slightly more expensive than competitors - Web development tools are not always intuitive

Recommendations to other buyers: I would definitely look to make sure that Squarespace will suit your business needs. For example, it doesn't integrate with ALL partners, so map out what exactly you will need to make your site successful.

Pros: I love the look of Squarespace, and the easy-to-use features. I don't have to go clicking around forever to find what I need to update, review, or track anything about my blog. Squarespace is sleek and professional and I am confident I am receiving a great product for a great price.

Cons: There is not a lot to not enjoy about Squarespace--not much to say here.

Overall: Squarespace is my favorite blog host to use. I have dabbled in Weebly, Wordpress, and Squarespace, and I finally settled on Squarespace because I loved the sleek, functional, easy-to-use sophistication of this host.
I run an editing/writing blog and I loved how minimalist and straightforward the platform is. My customers can find the information they need quickly and the site looks professional and clean.

Updating my information, tracking followers and comments and site traffic are all easy and quick to do with the layout Squarespace uses.

I have not tried to utilize the commerce portion of Squarespace, but I would feel comfortable giving it a go considering the positive experience I have had with Squarespace already.

Recommendations to other buyers: While Squarespace automatically gives your website a .squarespace url, I highly suggest buying your own domain name. This will show your customer and visitors you are professional and committed. Squarespace is a great host, but there is no reason you need to display their name right alongside yours.
