After teaming up with Stripe to launch a built-in ecommerce feature, site-builder and hosting platform Squarespace has decided to expand the service with support for donations and payments via forms. The company also now lets site owners sell services — in addition to physical and digital products — and track visitors’ actions after they check out.
In case you missed the original release, Squarespace Commerce is only available to paid users; it’s built into the company’s Business Plan, which is priced at $24 per month for a yearly subscription, or $30 month-to-month. As we said at the time, the goal here is clear: Squarespace wants to tempt would-be merchants away from free options such as Etsy, BigCartel and eBay, creating revenue from additional monthly subscribers.
