  1. This is not the best solution, but it does help put Terms & Conditions in front of a customer just before they are about to make a purchase. I still have the Terms and Conditions within the checkout pages and on the footer of every page. I used some code for something else I found from @tuanphan (who has so many many helpful snippets of code, the saviour of Squarespace). I'm still using the .tuan in there. I put this as code injection into the header: <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.5.0/jquery.min.js"></script> <script> $(document).ready(function() { $('.CartFooter-checkout-28MW2').append('<div class="tuan">By continuing to checkout, you have<br/>read and agree to our <strong><a style="color: #7a6e65;" href="https://theneuter.com/terms-and-conditions" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Terms and Conditions</a></strong></div>'); }); </script> <style> .tuan { display: block; height: auto; text-align: left; color: #000000; background-color: transparent; font-size: 1.1rem; line-height: 1.5em; margin-top: -82px; margin-bottom: 300px; } </style> And this in Custom CSS for Mobile @media screen and (max-width:640px) { .tuan { text-align: center !important; margin-top: -20px !important; } } I've had this up for the past month or so and it seems to be working fine. The way the text gets appended means that it also disappears if a customer removes all the items in their cart. My site URL if you want look at it live: https://theneuter.com/
  2. "Shipping method" will use the name you have given to the different shipping options a user chooses when going through checkout. It's what ever you called your different shipping options.
  3. If you haven’t yet updated with that new 7.1 categories update (don’t, it’s terrible), then you can control the categories (delete, create, edit) in the “edit product” panel of the product itself. Or through the inventory list in commerce.
  4. I am so annoyed about this update and regret that moment I clicked upgrade. I've asked (via Twitter) if this can be reverted, and they said no. I complained more and put in Anthony Casalena (CEO). And nothing. I'm still waiting for a response from Customer Service. I put a long critique of their practices on Instagram and included everyone I could find of their directors. I'm going to cancel my subscription unless this reverts back. All the reviews about squarespace and their great looking templates are meaningless unless their service is backed up by thoughtful, robust functionality. Perhaps the new Adobe guy they have appointed will fix this. Because frankly, having a business that is based solely on user experience is just not good enough.
  5. UPDATE UPDATE!! The Squarespace app still allows you to change the default theme. Site Styles > Colours > Site Theme Amazing.
  6. It seems to make a difference with what theme you begin with. I began with Crosby (mostly dark grey), and even though I've changed everything to white I still have the Dark theme when I create new pages. It's most annoying with respect to pages that Squarespace creates (shopping cart, order confirmation pages etc). Not to mention my whole site has this dark grey background even when all the section backgrounds are white (most noticeable on mobiles when you scroll beyond the page limit) My workaround was to identify the default theme (in my case Dark Minimal), then make sure I wasn't using this theme anywhere and then changed and matched every setting to White Minimal. This has corrected the problem. But it is pretty ridiculous that I had to do this. The colour management in Squarespace is absolutely terrible. I actually had to make a list on what section theme I applied and to what specific item. And that rubbish Color Palette functionality they probably spent ages developing? What is that? To use that you would have to trust how Squarespace are going to apply colours. And I don't. I cant even change a default theme colour.
  7. After spending a lot of time setting up my online store in Squarespace, and finding solutions and work-arounds to the many problems and issues one is faced with, I have now reached a complete stop with a particular issue. When you sign up to use Squarespace (or indeed this forum) you are faced with checkboxes that require you to agree with Squarespace's Terms and Conditions, Terms of Service, Privacy Policy etc. No such action is available for me to put on my site. It makes me (and Squarespace) look 10 years behind everyone else. And it is certainly not compliant with any kind of contract law, no matter what territory you may be operating from. We are well past the old days when users of e-commerce sites "agreed" to the Terms and Conditions just by virtue of them using the site. Look at how we have to allow users to agree to the use of cookies. I am at a loss on a solution around this problem. These are the options that I have tried but are not viable: Use Squarespace's fields for Store Policies Terrible. The links to these pop-ups are just dropped, like a second thought, underneath "Review and Purchase". There isn't even a prompt to get customers to read them. I'm not sure what they were thinking by putting this here. At lease allow us to place some text above them like "by continuing you have read and agree to the store policies below" Custom Checkout Form This was almost a winner. But no. You can add a checkbox requiring customers to "agree to store Terms and Conditions". You CANNOT, however, add an HTML link to these "Terms and Conditions". Why? Because you cannot add HTML to forms in the checkout area like you can elsewhere. You cannot ask someone to agree to something they cannot read. The only way around this is to ask customers to copy and paste the URL to your Terms and Conditions. I don't think so. Add text to the Shopping Cart Page I found a way in this forum to add some text to the Shopping Cart Page to read: "By continuing to checkout you have read and agree to our Terms and Conditions". However, this is not a very elegant solution. It really needs to be at checkout. It is also tricky to control where this appears on this page and on a mobile for example. And I have not been able to find away to stop showing when the cart is empty (I'm sure there is a way). Perhaps there is an elegant solution along this route. I have just not found it yet. Checkbox Form or Text on the product page I have also seen suggestions to get agreement to Terms and Conditions on the product page itself, before customers add to cart. This is not a great option as it is kind of off-putting and a few steps behind actually placing an order. Does anyone have any ideas about solutions to this problem? I'm so irritated with Squarespace's lack of of fulfilling this very basic requirement for e-commerce. And it is one they use themselves!! So annoying. I think I'm going to send this post to their CEO.
