  1. Thanks for informing me, will do. I will still leave the post on here, if people wonder what problems they may have and maybe someone will even propose new solutions.
  2. Hello everyone, in Germany (probably Europe as well) there are a lot of laws and guidelines on what an ecommerce website requires. I want to post a list of problems that we were not able to solve and hope that someone knows some tricks or that Squarespace expands its editing functionalities to fulfill those guidelines. I propose some possible solutions to the given problems as well as some quality of life feature requests later on. Problem #1: Not able to show shipping policies in the checkout. Right now it is possible to show the privacy policy, return policy and terms of service in the checkout. However, in Germany it is required to also link the shipping policy. Possible Solutions #1: Add the option to add shipping policy to the other policies linked to in checkout Add the option to show the website footer in the checkout as well as the footer could contain all required policies Problem #2: Not able to show taxes and shipping costs in the cart before selecting country in checkout. Right now it is not possible to show taxes and shipping costs for a default country in the shopping-cart. Taxes and shipping costs are shown only when a country to ship to is selected in the checkout process. In Germany it is required to show the total costs including taxes and shipping costs in the shopping-cart before the customer begins the checkout process. Possible Solutions #2: Add option to add some default tax in shopping-cart screen. So that the price is calculated before the checkout process. Maybe use a default tax there since the country to ship to is selected later on. Problem #3: Squarespace uses Cookies that shouldn't be required. Even after deactivating the precise analytics and removing social sharing buttons etc. Squarespace websites seem to establish a connection to adobe typekit. This happens also when no adobe fonts are used on the website. In Germany it is required that such a connection is established only when the customer allows it. There seems to be no way to deactivate such connections though. Possible Solution #3: Add option to use or load adobe fonts. Don't load adobe fonts if they are not used on the website Here are also some feature requests that would make building a webshop in Germany (or Europe) more easy: let each physical product have a range of days until delivery is done (eg. "This item is delivered in 2 - 5 work days.") right now one would have to add such information in the product description let each products price have the property taxes included or taxes excluded this needs to be shown under each products price, right now one has to add this to each products description let each products price have the property shipping costs included or shipping costs excluded this needs to be shown under each products price, right now one has to add this to each products description
