Up until now, Squarespace was only a SaaS based content management system (CMS) which offered a designer-friendly website builder, blogging platform and hosting service. Now they’ve dived into the world of ecommerce with Squarespace Commerce.
That's why I felt that it's time to explore the system with an in-depth Squarespace Commerce review.
Squarespace was founded by Anthony Casalena in 2004 and has been slowly adding updates over the years. The biggest update was in July 2012 when they launched Squarespace 6 which added portfolio templates, responsive designs and opened way more control up for developers.
But this isn’t about Squarespace, this review is about Squarespace Commerce. Some of you may not know this, but people with Squarespace sites have always been able to sell online simply by adding something like PayPal or Ecwid. But that wasn’t ideal.
So now, Squarespace offers users the option of selling online.
