Squarespace still only accepts dates in the form mm/dd/yy. That said, if you expect a website to appeal to a global audience, there are better ways to input a date than to ask users to enter them manually.

For example, someone from Europe who is visiting New York could could easily book theatre tickets for April 3rd (04/03) instead of 4th March (04/03) if they were required to enter the date using digits. The transaction could be a total disaster!

Unless you are requesting historical dates, like a date of birth, a datepicker offers a much improved user experience (UX) for everyone.

A popular solution is our Datepicker Extension for Squarespace. You can add it to Squarespace Contact Forms and Custom Product Forms on both Squarespace 7.0 and 7.1.

Thanks.  An even better option would be for Square space to listen to their users and understand not all of them live in the USA.  I pay a significant amount of money every month and expect that the service caters to my geographic area.
