Squarespace has gone through many evolutions since it was founded in 2003. Today, it serves over a million customers and is rapidly growing because it offers a comprehensive suite of tools for building beautiful eCommerce stores. It provides email marketing, has over 100 templates, provides a built-in blog, and allows you a lot of design flexibility. The platform does have a few quirks like not auto-saving your content and there is no refund on monthly plans.

Difficult to use and missing basic features

We switched over from WordPress to design two websites and it was a horrible experience. The support didn’t help much and we ended up calling in a developer to build out functionality that Sqyuarespace should have but didn’t.

Cons

- Pixel perfect design customization is lacking
- Zero media storage
- Cannot duplicate the site or the pages themselves
- There’s no support for plugins
- No revision history or undo button

Great for small business websites

I use Squarespace to manage my portfolio and as a tool to collect payments from clients. I’m able to update my website with a few clicks and it’s more secure because it doesn’t allow third-party plugins. I moved from WordPress and haven’t looked back.

Pros

Pros
- Great templates
- Fast website development
- Global edits to the main styles so it saves a lot of time

Cons

Campaigns integration is currently limited. For example, you can’t add a contact to a mailing list if they submit a form.

My favorite platform for designing client sites

I’ve been using Squarespace for three years and have designed simple and complex websites. I love how it integrates so many different things like eCommerce, email marketing, scheduling, etc.
