First things first, Squarespace and Square Online are NOT THE SAME!
This can be a major point of confusion due to the names along with how they can be used together (more on that later).
Let’s first get our definitions for both of these website building tools so that we can move on to the MAJOR & minor differences so that you can decide which platform is best for your business!
Squarespace is a website building and hosting company based in New York City. With a focus on clean pre-built templates with a drag-and-drop interface. Also has many additional features including eCommerce, membership areas, scheduling, and more being added frequently.
Square Online is an eCommerce web builder service that Square Inc (based in San Fransisco, Cali) offers at a competitive price. This builder is built on top of Weebly which Square Inc purchased in 2018. And before you ask Weebly and Square Online are very similar but a bit different in the way inventory can sync with existing Square POS inventory.
