(Despite similar names, Squarespace and Square are separate companies that provide complementary web-related services. Squarespace is a website creation and hosting service. Square provides financial transaction services.)


If you are a merchant who does not need off-line credit card processing, there will be no charge or changes to your current Squarespace account.


Find more pricing and capabilities information at the Squarespace “Help Center.”
