How do I set up sliding scale payment?

Recommended Posts

Hello! I am hoping to add tiered/sliding scale pricing to my website where I sell physical products. I am hoping to have a checkout process by which people can insert how much they would like to pay for a product, or have 3 tiers of pricing that folks can chose from. I new to the squarespace world and completely lost! I have read many things online but still can't figure out the step by step approach to make this happen. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Squarespace doesn't support variable pricing. The only way to offer more than one price for a product is to add "variants" to each product so customers can select from a range of prices, just as they would more commonly select from a range of different sizes or colours. Each variant can have a different price.

Thank you paul! Unfortunately, adding different prices via variants doesn't seem to be what I am looking for because doing so doesn't change the price at checkout. 

Do you have any information on how I could embed a pricing table via Stripe on my website? Thank you!

If you set different prices on each variant they will be reflected at checkout but I honestly don’t think Squarespace is the right platform to achieve what you want.

Thanks for your question, @lulubee! I am having the same challenge. 

Squarespace, please offer a solution. Sliding scale and equitable pricing models are only going to become more prevalent. Please help us be more inclusive in the audiences we serve -- without having to make multiple products or events for the same thing at different price levels. 

thank you!
