Hi all, 

I'm considering switching my store to shopify as my payment gateway while still using my squarespace site because i would like to add in multiple currencies based on geolocation and to add afterpay. I need advice on:

1. if switching, will it screw up my facebook pixel? 

2. when I switch over will it affect other payment methods i already have connected on the site such as paypal? 

3. would I have to rebuild each product description again from 0?

4. is there a way to get a refund of the remainder of the stripe subscription considering I have not used the full year subscription? 

If anyone has experience from doing this themselves, I'd love to get your opinion. 

thanks in advance!

Hi 

I wrote a guide about using Shopify Buy Buttons with Squarespace that may help you. To answer your specific questions:

1. if switching, will it screw up my facebook pixel? 

When a customer adds a product to the cart, this transaction and the remaining steps to checkout will not be occurring on Squarespace, they'll be happening on Shopify. The pixel on Squarespace therefore won't track AddtoCart, InitiateCheckout, AddPaymentInfo, Purchase and so on. Shopify has similar features.

 

2. when I switch over will it affect other payment methods i already have connected on the site such as paypal? 

The Shopify checkout will replace the Squarespace checkout. Your Squarespace payment integrations (PayPal and Stripe) won't be used. 

 

3. would I have to rebuild each product description again from 0?

There are various ways to integrate them. As a minimum, you'll need to add some basic details (including an image) for each product within Shopify.

 

4. is there a way to get a refund of the remainder of the stripe subscription considering I have not used the full year subscription? 

Can you clarify what you mean? I'm not aware of any subscription costs to use Stripe.

Hi Paul! 

Thanks a lot for the detailed info... this is very helpful information. When a customer initiates the checkout then and the site uses shopify, will it run seamlessly through squarespace... as in so it looks like it's running through the same website in squarespace or will it redirect the customer to a checkout on shopify? 

What I meant by question 4 was, annually you pay the subscription to squarespace for the using th shop feature... I just went through it now again to double check and I think I've answered my own question because I thought that payment was to stripe, but its for the whole site... so thats a void question :)

The cart/checkout will slide in on the right side of the page.

You can downgrade from a Squarespace Commerce plan to a Business plan, if you don’t want to use the commerce features of Squarespace.
