  1. There is a slight workaround that I found for getting a refund on yearly plans. If you change your billing cycle from yearly to monthly you will receive a prorated refund for the year you paid for and then  be billed one month at the standard rate. Then you just need to cancel your new monthly subscription.

    This does mean that you effectively lose a months subscription fees but it’s better than nothing. 

    Also most of the things that you are saying you can’t do in 7.1 are not actually a function of them not being available on 7.1 but rather the personal plan. The personal plan doesn’t include premium features such as MailChimp.

  2. Pretty much what @paul2009 said, it’s meant more as a starting off point. As you can imagine when trying to provide a solution such as this, there are a lot of different variables in how a Squarespace website might be configured from AJAX to the specific templates, product blocks vs product pages... So one for all solutions like this do sometimes present problems. 

    It was basically designed to work in a wide variety of use cases whilst also being simple enough for the lay person or anyone else who would like to develop on it further to decipher. In addition it was also designed in a way that makes it relatively easy to maintain incase something fundamentally changes on Squarespace. Unfortunately that means that in some instances it does cause some less then ideal situations like this one with the cover page. 

    Really the only reason I suggest you put the html code in the global header is incase you have AJAX enabled. If you don’t then you can simply put it into the specific product page header which will solve your problem. 


  3. You're never going to get a clear cut answer as Squarespace doesn't release any type roadmap and nobody on the forum has any more information then you do.

    What I will say is don't pick a platform that isn't right for you on the hope that a feature may or may not come sometime in the future. It took years and years for Squarespace just to add PayPal, that was about 2 years ago now and there hasn't been any more payment providers added to the platform since. So in my honest opinion I would be surprised if Squarespace introduced support for Bank of America processing.

    Again, if Squarespace isn't the right platform for you then don't force it upon yourself. Go with what makes the most sense to you.


  4. @paul2009 sells an extension that will do exactly what you need.

    Also if you're using the Brine template then you shouldn't need CSS to disable the add to cart button. You should be able to disable it in the Style Editor.

  5. Unfortunately there is no work around for this. I agree that it does make life difficult in the UK. 
     

    Squarespace does have the facility to set-up shipping rates on a state and postcode level but only for the US and Canada. Hopefully Squarespace can bring this to the UK as well, I can’t really think why it wouldn’t be possible. The best thing to do would be register a feature request with customer support. 


  6. It’s a difficult question and you strategy will depend very much on your business, industry and customer base. 

    Whilst Wordpress can offer SEO tools like Yoast I personally believe that they are somewhat useless if you don’t understand SEO yourself. In a way they provide a false sense of security. After all Yoast is simply a tool to optimise your website with a bit of handholding, they point you in the right direction but it is still down to you. You can have all the SEO tools in the world and still not rank on Google  

    I would start by researching current SEO trends and how to implement them into an an SEO strategy and in Squarespace. Who and what do you want to target.

    Next familiarise yourself with the Squarespace platform. What goes where, where to put page descriptions, how URL are formatted... There are some oddities like image captions but once you’ve gotten used to it you will quickly realise that you can optimise almost all the same things that you can on Wordpress. 

    Also remember that your websites speed is also a contributing factor to you search engine position. Try to stick to one font, compress your image and try not to use too many scripts. 

    I have personally managed to get a few websites to rank in the number one spot on Google and they were all hilt on Squarespace so there’s really no reason why you can’t as well. Good luck!
