offering payment plans (not suscriptions)



Hi everyone, I'm building SS sites for new business owners (coaches and other health related services), who only need simple payment options like :
  • pay in full with Stripe or PayPal
  • pay in installments aka payment plans (for bigger coaching packages)
Right now I'm not satisfied with SS Advanced commerce plan because if you can use the "suscription" option to create some kind of payment plan, SS confirmed that customers can cancel their "suscription" any time, and you won't even get notified.
So basically right now there is no native way to do real payment plans on SS Commerce...
What are you using or installing on your clients' sites for payment?
I'm looking for budget friendly options as we're targeting new small business owners, France based .
So far I came across Moonclerk and Acuity, any other suggestions ?
Thanks for your help !

As you know, Squarespace supports subscriptions, but it doesn't support payment plans and hasn't announced any plans to do so.

If you need payment plans now, you're better off with Shopify because it offers integrations with popular pay-later services like Klarna, AfterPay, Zip and Sezzle. They have also announced that their own "Buy Now, Pay Later" feature will be launched later this year. This will allow clients to give their customers the option to split their payments into four equal installments, with no interest or additional fees.

If you're interested trying Shopify (Buy Buttons) with Squarespace, I wrote a guide that explains this.

Update February 2021: Squarespace added Afterpay as an option in the US, Australia and New Zealand. PayPal Pay-in-3 is available in the UK.

This would be HUGE for service products. I'm a photographer and web designer. I could utilize the service products for different packages, and the forms for contracts. I typically have my clients put 20% down at time of signing and the remaining balance due at completion. 


I could ditch my other apps I currently use for this.
