Squarespace E-Commerce Store & Square

Recommended Posts

Hi, all!

I'm a relatively new member to Squarespace Circle but cannot rave enough about this supportive community!

I have a client (a small coffeeshop/roastery with one physical location) who loves Squarespace and would like me to build a website (with online store) using the Squarespace platform. However, they use Square as their POS in store, and they would like to use Square to process all of their payments (both online and in-store). I understand that, as of now, Squarespace only accepts online payments using Stripe and/or PayPal, and they do not want to pay additional for any third-party integrations (like Ecwid or Trunk).

To accommodate these requests, the only solution I can think of is to (1) build the "core" of their website on Squarespace, (2) set up their online store through Square's "Online Store," and then (3) have the "Shop" button on the navigation menu on their Squarespace website redirect to their online store in Square. Obviously, this is not the most ideal situation, but do you any of you have suggestions on a better solution/workaround (or, better yet, any idea if/when Squarespace will integrate with Square and accept Square payments for online transactions)? 

Please forgive me if I've misused any terminology--I've been building websites for years but am a bit of a novice in the ecommerce world. Thank you in advance for any insight you can shed on this situation!

I also have this problem with my store... We use Square for everything and when the store changed last year to Weebly we switched to Squarespace... little did I know, the sales are NOT accounted for in my Square dashboard! Its totally separate. I had to go back and adjust my taxes because I didn't realize it until COVID hit and we were forced to do all of our business online. Why dont they integrate??

I found kind of a hacky workaround that worked for my client, but it was pretty specific for their use case. They were not selling physical products, but taking deposits for appointments. So I used JotForm to setup the transaction through a form, and through that platform you can accept payment through square. You can embed the jotform form onto your site so the end user doesn't recognize there are multiple systems involved, and after the transaction you can direct a user to any page on your site. So it bypasses Squarespace's ecommerce transaction all together.


Not sure if this workaround is applicable to anyone else here. Any of course my client is no longer taking appointments online, so I am not able to show an example of it working, but feel free to message me directly if you want to give this a shot and have questions.


Good luck all!

Hi @sienawalker, can I ask if you were able to pass through the product info from the product page into the jotform or is this not possible at all?  I want to embed a jotform on the product page, and pass through the product details (Title, Price) into the jotform when the user opens the jotform. Possible?
