  1. 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.
  2. @paul2009 wrote a blog post about how to utilise Shopify buy buttons on Squarespace website. https://sf.digital/squarespace-solutions/how-to-add-afterpay-ideal-klarna-or-zip-pay-to-squarespace He also sells an plugin that should make the process easier as well. https://sf.digital/plugins/shopify-buy-button-plugin
  3. I would take a look at @paul2009’s product enquiry form extension which should do what you need. https://sf.digital/squarespace-product-enquiry-form or even his Wish List extension. https://sf.digital/squarespace-product-wishlist
  4. If they're okay with a shared password then why not use a password protected page? https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205814618-Page-passwords
  5. I’m experiencing the same thing. The best thing to do is contact support and tell them about the issue and they will pass it onto the development team to fix.
  6. Real time carrier calculated rates are only available for domestic US shipments. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/213022907-Carrier-calculated-shipping
  7. 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.
  8. @paul2009 sells an extension that will do exactly what you need. https://sf.digital/squarespace-product-enquiry-form 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. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/212838128-Brine-Site-Styles-tweaks#toc-products
  9. 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.
  10. Yes, I wrote a blog post about how to make a pop-up appear when a user adds an item to their cart which gives them the option to continue shopping or proceed to their cart. https://thompsonweb.design/squarespace-website-tips/added-to-cart-pop-up
  11. Unfortunately it appears to be a bug. I would submit a report with customer support and they should pass it onto the development team to fix.
  12. Unfortunately you will have to create a new trail, there is no way to switch between version 7.1 and 7.0.
  13. Instead of related products. Just add the product blocks in the additional information section of the products. It's not ideal but will work. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/206541037-Adding-additional-information-to-products
  14. The easiest non-technical way would be to use a series of product blocks instead of related products. The only catch is that it will take some time to set-up. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205814508-Product-Blocks
  15. If you don’t deliver anything it may be better to set up your products as services instead of physical products. This way your customers won’t have to enter a delivery address at checkout and the delivery section won’t appear in the automated emails. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/206540867-Service-products
  16. Unfortunately you can’t edit the text or add code to the checkout page as it is locked down for PCI Compliance. Developer mode won’t help either.
  17. 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!
  18. If you’ve set a transparent background to your header then it will use the colour pallet that you set for the first section of the page. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/360028367571-Version-7-1-style-and-design-options#toc-header
  19. You will just need to update your notification settings within your Squarespace account. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205811288-Managing-your-email-preferences#toc-update-your-email-preferences
  20. Unfortunately this isn’t possible with Squarespace. You can only charge one blanket tax rate.
  21. You don’t need the surrounding <style></style>
  22. If you click on the word Categories next to the list a pop-up will appear; you can then just click on which category you want to delete, click out of the pop-up and press save. Alternatively you can also bulk delete a category if you just want to get rid of it entirely by going into the page settings. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205814438-Categories-and-tags#toc-bulk-edit-categories-or-tags
  23. It looks like you are using version 7.1 of Squarespace, you should be able to display a cart icon in your header. You will need to click on the header of your website and press edit, you will then need to enable the cart icon. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/360028367571-Version-7-1-style-and-design-options#toc-header
  24. Unfortunately there are only limited stylings that can be applied to the lock screen. https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205815178-Designing-a-lock-screen
  25. 7.1 is a bit buggy at the moment. I would alter support and they will pass the issue onto the development team.
