Premium features

With Premium features, you can create a Squarespace website or online store with custom content and integrations that help your business grow. Premium features, which include the Commerce platform, are available on the Business and Commerce plans.

Premium features aren't available on the Personal plan. If you're on this plan, you can upgrade at any time to use them.

List of Premium features

The following features are only available on the Business and Commerce plans. They’re designed to meet the needs of any small business or organization, from restaurants, to non-profits, to stores:

Premium access during your trial

Your 14-day Squarespace trial gives you a taste of what it’s like to work with Squarespace. Throughout your trial, you’ll have access to most Premium features so you can play with them and see if they’ll work for your site needs.

Trial sites can’t accept payments through the Commerce platform. However, you can use your trial to set up your store, add products, and preview what it’s like to run an eCommerce business on Squarespace.

Choose the right plan

Once you’re done with your trial, and if you have any of these features on your site, we recommend choosing a plan that includes them. This means that if you want to add any Premium feature on your live site, the Personal plan probably doesn’t suit your needs.

If you try to subscribe to the Personal plan, you’ll see a message reminding you that you’ll lose these features. Notably, you won’t be able to sell products, process orders, or edit custom code. 

You can upgrade your plan at any time to regain access to these features.

Downgrading

If you’re on a Business or Commerce plan and downgrade to the Personal plan, Premium features will no longer appear on your live site. If you try to downgrade, you’ll see a message reminding you that you’ll lose these features.

  • Premium blocks will disappear from your live site. However, they'll remain visible and editable when you're logged in.
  • Commerce features like checkout and processing orders will be disabled.
  • Code Injection will remain on your live site and continue to work, but you won't be able to edit the code.
  • If it was activated before you downgraded, Developer Mode will remain "on," but you won't be able to edit the code.

You can upgrade your plan at any time to regain access to these features.

Upgrading

If you're on the Personal Plan, you can upgrade your plan at any time to access Premium features.

Code Block

On every plan, the Code Block supports:

  • HTML
  • Plain text
  • Markdown
  • CSS code, when surrounded by <style></style> tags.

Adding JavaScript or iframes to a Code Block is a Premium feature available in the current Website Business plan and higher.

  • Available in:
    • All trials
    • All Business and Commerce plans
    • Legacy Personal plan (no longer available for new subscriptions)
  • Not available in:
    • Current Personal plan

If you've added this code while on trial or on a higher plan, the code will remain in the block, but won't be functional. When you're logged in, you'll see a note that the code isn't supported. This note isn't visible to your visitors. To use JavaScript or iframe code, upgrade your plan.

Note: We periodically change our plan offerings to best group features for our customers. If you’ve used Squarespace before and have an active website on a Personal plan, some of these features are available on your site.
