Thanks to everyone who replied to my question and for your suggestions. I contacted Squarespace support and requested assistance, but unfortunately the person who replied to me could only say that they will refer the matter to development, but couldn't guarantee that it will be resolved any time soon. I guess he didn't have the authority to promise anything, but there's always hope that the message got through to the right people. I can't see why it can't be implemented as other platforms have done so, and it's a major requirement for anyone looking for a simple way to monetize their blog so really in Squarespace's best interest to solve.
Below is the reply I received:

@PDChappelle has your full URL redirect worked since you tried it, or have you moved on to an alternative?
