Beauty Above All For eCommerce teams visual appeal is weighted higher than other industries, and Squarespace offers forward-thinking design and presentation.
Content Is King The content management system (CMS) and blogging features are top-tier offerings for content marketers..
Forward-Thinking Infrastructure Video and mobile, two major formats moving forward, are easily customized and fully-responsive.
Navigation at Scale If you are attempting to build a large complex website be ready for limited levels of navigation and frustrating file management.
Payment Processing As of today Stripe and PayPal are the only available payment gateways.
Integration Shortage Since Squarespace is newer to the eCommerce scene, their integration suite is far behind the competition. Expect to build custom one-off integrations.
