Hi guys, 

I'm dealing with the same issue for over 2 years now, and i'm afraid there is no direct solution for this. Altough SquareSpace is awesome to work with, the payment options for foreign users (f.e. European) are minimal. I'm afraid this will be something on the long run, since there are no plans to add iDeal soon (contacted them several times with this question).

An option could be to merge a Shopify store into your SquareSpace website. It works well (alltough I'm not using it since my goal isn't direct selling), but I tried it and seemed ok. The checkout/payment will also being processed by Shopify's payment options (like iDeal). The con is double monthly costs, since you need both SquareSpace and Shopify.

This is the best solution if you already own a SquareSpace website and don't want to change to another webshop platform. In case you are considering either SquareSpace or Shopify, ask yourself what the goal of your website is. SquareSpace is awesome with designing options and SEO, but isn't the best platform for webshop who serve European/national markets.

Hope this helps? Give me a holler in case of any additional questions.

I additionally have experience implementing Shopify on a Squarespace internet site. It's now not ideal (no pun meant), but possible. Let me recognize if I will let you out with something like this. And as cited above, in case you're making a brand new internet site and your goal is e-commerce

iDEAL Payments are a popular payment method in the Netherlands but are not supported on Squarespace and are unlikely to be supported in the near future.

Shopify is a more expensive Squarespace competitor but it fully supports iDEAL when you use their Shopify Payments service. If you already have a Squarespace site with a small number of products, you may want to consider Shopify Buy Buttons - see our guide to using them on Shopify here.
