Can a Member Area be free but password protected?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

We are trying to see if the Member Area would be effective for our Dropship program. The flow entails: Our wholesale buyers would have their retail customers buy our products in their store and/or their website. Then the wholesale buyers would go onto our site, place the same order to pay us (with already discounted priced items) and lastly, we would ship it to their retail customer if it was an online order. 

Does anyone know - Can we make the member area free but accessible by a password that we give the Dropship program customers? Does this increase the chances of the Member Area getting hacked? If so, any idea on how to reduce our chances? 

If a member area would not be the best solution in your opinion, is there another Squarespace option you'd recommend for our dropship needs?

Thanks in advance!

You can password-protect a store page with a single page password that everyone must share or you can protect it with Member Areas, where each user must user their own login and password. The problem with Member Areas is that anyone can join. It isn’t currently possible to manually approve members.

Thank you. Are you aware if the Member Area can be set up with a different tax structure than the regularly purchased items (non-Member area) ?  Our dropshipper wholesalers would be buying tax-free in our Member Area.

Your whole Squarespace site can either include tax, or not include tax. You cannot change this for different customers or different products.
