Recommended Posts

Check out everything new that happened at Squarespace in February below. Which updates are you most excited about? 

Unfold 

Make your Reels and Slideshows pop with transitions 

We’ve added a new transitions option in the Reels Editor and in Slideshows that work with both images and videos. You can use transitions to make your reels and slideshows more eye-catching. 

Learn more about transitions.

 

Commerce

Sell access to your videos

You can sell content on Video pages using a custom pricing plan that works for you. You can now display a pricing plan over the video player so that visitors can still see titles and descriptions, but they’ll need to sign up for a paid plan to watch them. We’ve released this feature to bring an industry-standard video paywall experience to Squarespace customers and to offer more flexibility in how you merchandise your content.

Updated subscription renewal email 

If you sell subscription products, the template for automatic renewal notification emails now includes more helpful information that reminds subscribers what they’re paying for: the subscription product, price, and renewal interval. We’ve made this update to give shoppers more visibility into their subscriptions.

Squarespace Payments 

Use an existing Stripe account as your payment processor

Squarespace Payments, our new all-in-one payment solution, is slowly rolling out to customers in the U.S. 

If you have access to Squarespace Payments but already have a Stripe account you’d like to use, you can now connect Stripe instead, in addition to PayPal and Square. Previously, Stripe wasn’t available to customers with access to Squarespace Payments.

Transaction dispute management with Squarespace Payments 

If a customer disputes a transaction, you’ll receive an email notification and see banners in your Selling Dashboard, Payments panel, and Payouts panel to notify you. You can choose to either accept or challenge the dispute, and submit evidence directly from your site. 

Please note, Squarespace Payments is slowly rolling out to customers in the U.S.

Websites

Use Squarespace AI to write content on the Squarespace App 

We’ve added Squarespace AI to the Squarespace app so you can use it to get a first draft of content when you’re on the go.. With Squarespace AI, you can draft a paragraph, sales pitch, or blurb about a topic of your choice or get ideas about how to improve copy you’ve already written. 

Please note, AI-generated text is a great starting point, but it may not be accurate, appropriate, or right for your needs. You should always edit what Squarespace AI writes to add your own voice and unique details.

Duplicate course pages 

You can now duplicate your course pages, inclusive of lessons and course landing pages, in the course’s pages settings. This feature will allow you to create more course content quickly on a layout that you’ve already created and like.

These are all great updates. Especially the Commerce and Squarespace Payment updates. Thanks!

Also, I have a suggestion. It would be great to be able to give customers the ability to  optionally provide a shipping address for Digital Products. I know typically that is not needed, but in some cases, such as mine, it would be helpful in sour company sending out a Welcome Gift that is being offered to those that subscribe to our digital product. We are now having to collect this information after the fact to send the promised gifts.
