Custom Pricing - Squarespace Commerce or Shopify?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I design websites on Squarespace and Shopify. I have a new client who owns a floral arrangement business, and at times she has a need to create custom prices for customers (depending on which flowers they choose and what current wholesale prices are). She will need the ability to do this through online sales on the website, and also point-of-sale (Square).

I touched base with Squarespace Help and they said they currently have no ability to assign custom prices on the fly, but that a new product could be created and listed in the Not Linked section. Has anyone come across a similar need and found a good solution? We could also look at Shopify to solve this need, but I'm a little concerned that this would be offered in the form of an app with a monthly fee.

Thank you!

This is correct. It isn't possible to set a flexible price for products or services. 

Your client can add some products to the store's inventory to use specifically for this purpose and then vary the price as required - but they'll need to login to their website each time to do this, or use the Squarespace App. Alternatively, they could create a product with variants and instruct customers to select a particular variant. Neither workaround will be perfect.
