With Checkout on Your Domain, customers ready to purchase will be directed to a custom, secure checkout page on your domain. They’ll see a URL with your primary domain in it that looks like this:
The entire shopping experience will live on your domain, creating a consistent look and a sense of security. When this is enabled, customers won't be directed to our default checkout page that starts with https://secure.squarespace.com/.
Note: Checkout on all plans is protected by SSL and is PCI compliant. If you're on a plan that doesn't include Checkout on Your Domain, your checkout is secure. Customers will see our default secure checkout URL that has "Squarespace" in it.
Checkout on Your Domain is enabled on your site automatically if:
- You're on the Commerce Basic or Advanced plan .
- You have any custom domain . Squarespace Domains, domains transferred to Squarespace, and domains connected from third parties are eligible.
- You have a Squarespace or third-party subdomain.
- You have SSL enabled with the preference set to Secure. For help, visit Squarespace and SSL.
Checkout on built-in domains
If you're on the Commerce Basic or Advanced plan and don't have a custom domain, your checkout page URL will have your built-in domain in it, like https://youraccountid.squarespace.com/checkout.
