This guide answers questions about using the Squarespace Commerce platform internationally as a merchant or a shopper.
Who can shop in my store?
You can accept our payment methods from anywhere in the world where they're supported. We don't impose additional location restrictions for shoppers buying products from your store.
Does Squarespace Commerce support my country?
Stripe's supported countries
Visit Stripe’s Global page to see a list of their supported countries. Countries are classified in three ways:
- Live: These countries have full support and access to all Stripe features. Anyone can sign up and create an account.
- Open Preview: Preview countries may not include all Stripe features. Anyone can sign up and create an account.
- Closed Preview: Closed preview countries may not include all Stripe features. Closed previews are by invitation only. You can request an invite on Stripe's Global page.
To learn more Stripe's country previews, visit their documentation.
Argentina, Colombia, Indonesia, and South Africa
While Stripe supports the national currencies for these countries, it's not currently possible to create a Stripe account in these locations. This means that to sell in ARS, COP, IDR, and ZAR, your Stripe account must be located elsewhere, in a supported country.

Visit PayPal’s Global page to see a list of their supported countries.

Stripe’s supported currencies
After connecting a Stripe account to Squarespace, your store will automatically update to display the currency associated with your Stripe account, if that currency is supported by Squarespace. You can change this currency at any time.
The available currencies depend on where your connected bank account is located.
- U.S., U.K., Australian, and European bank accounts support all currencies listed above.
- Canadian bank accounts only support USD and CAD.
- Indian bank accounts only support INR.
- Mexican bank accounts only support MXN.
- New Zealand bank accounts only support NZD.
Stripe charges a conversion fee for transactions in a currency that isn’t associated with your bank account. The conversion fee varies, but it's about 2% on top of the regular transaction fees. To learn about this, visit Stripe's documentation.
Tip: If your country supports multiple currencies, we recommend choosing the currency used by the bank account connected to your Stripe account. Funds in that currency will go to that account with no conversion fee.
PayPal supported currencies
After connecting a PayPal Business account to your Squarespace site, your store will automatically update to display your PayPal Business account’s primary currency, if that currency is supported by Squarespace. You can change this currency at any time.
PayPal charges a conversion fee for changing currencies. To learn about this, visit PayPal’s documentation.
PayPal doesn't support these currencies:
- Argentine Peso (ARS)
- Colombian Peso (COP)
- Indonesian Rupiah (IDR)
- South African Rand (ZAR)
PayPal has limited support for these currencies:
- Indian Rupee (INR) - Supported in India only
Tip: If your country supports multiple currencies, we recommend choosing the currency set as your primary currency in your PayPal Business account.
Can I collect VAT or GST?
Yes. Squarespace supports tax-inclusive pricing and customizable order invoices. For help setting this up, visit Collecting VAT or GST.
Can I change my store currency?
Yes. After connecting a payment processor to your Squarespace site, you'll see all available currencies for your account in the Payments panel. To learn more, visit Changing your store's currency.
Can I choose a different store currency than my bank account (Stripe) or primary currency (PayPal)?
You can sell in a currency that isn't linked to your bank account. However, your payment processor may charge a conversion fee for each transaction. You can review the fee and more details on Stripe’s pricing page and PayPal’s user agreement.
Can I choose multiple currencies for my store?
No. You can only sell in one currency for your store at this time. Your payment processor determines the available store currencies. If you’ve connected both Stripe and PayPal, a currency must be supported by both the bank account connected to your Stripe account and by PayPal to display in the drop-down menu.
What if my country isn't supported by Stripe or PayPal?
Stripe and PayPal are the only integrated payment processors we support. To use Squarespace Commerce, you must have a bank account (for Stripe) or PayPal account based in a country supported by one of these providers.
