Can you get started without committing to a theme?

Recommended Posts

I have started doing a lot of Squarespace sites for clients. I usually have them sign up for an account, pay for a year, and then have them give me the login to start building. The problem is Squarespace makes you provide a bunch of information about who you are and choose a template. This is really confusing to my clients who just want me to build from the wireframe we have created together. Is there a way to bypass this process and sign up without committing to a template?

As a Circle Member who is designing  sites for clients you can start the new trial yourself using whichever template you feel most comfortable with.

If you are designing from a wireframe, you're probably best starting with a blank 7.1 template (with no demo content). You can create a trial with a blank template by clicking the button on your account page or start a trial using one of the other templates. You'll be given a six-month trial to allow you to design the site without the client incurring subscription costs.

When you are ready, you can invite your client to the site as a contributor, they can pay for the site and, when complete, you can transfer ownership.
