So you’re ready to make your own ecommerce website!
… Because you have heard about all the benefits and good stuff that comes from establishing your own branded shop online. AWESOME. There are lots of options when it comes to building your online shop but the ultimate goal is the same no matter which platform you use: sales! We all know that fewer obstacles equals better chance of sales happening, right? Right. We also know that SquareSpace can help you build a gorgeous website and is one of the most commonly looked at options. However, there is one thing SquareSpace doesn’t do that you should really care about!
It might also be worth noting that there is not API with SquareSpace like there is with Shopify, so you cannot add functionality to your site alone with apps or plugins. I tell you this because if you are going to invest the time and money into something you want to be sure it can actually do all that you’d need or want it to.
In this episode, I will tell you about:
- The thing Squarespace isn’t able to do.
- The reason why this functionality is a pretty big deal.
- The platform I suggest you use to build your shop instead, Shopify.
