Importing and exporting content

You can import and export content, products, and contacts to and from your Squarespace site.

Importing copies content onto your Squarespace site from another site. Exporting copies your Squarespace site's content to use on a new platform.

Product importing is available on Commerce Basic and Advanced plans.

Import sources

We support content imports from:

If your Squarespace site uses Commerce, you can import products from:

Note: Squarespace isn't optimized for importing content between Squarespace sites except when importing from Squarespace 5 to Squarespace 7.0. Importing content from one Squarespace 7.0 or 7.1 site into another Squarespace 7.0 or 7.1 site may cause broken image links and other issues.

Import and export content

When importing blog content, Squarespace generally imports post content, comments, and images. We'll attempt to preserve post URLs. To import content:

  1. In the Home menu, click Settings, click Advanced, then click Import/Export.
  2. Click Import.
  3. Select your import source.
  4. Enable imported content (content imports only).
  5. Move imported content to the main navigation (optional).

To learn more about the process, requirements, and supported content for each source, use these guides:

If you’re leaving Squarespace, you can export all compatible content into an .xml file. For more help, visit Exporting your site.

Import and export products

The number of products you can import depends on your site's version.

  • In version 7.1, you can import up to 10,000 products per store page.
  • In version 7.0, you can import up to 200 products per store page.
  • To import more products, use multiple pages.

You can also export your Squarespace Commerce products which creates an editable .csv file. With this .csv file, you can import your products to third-party services, save a copy for your records, or import your products to another Squarespace site. To learn more, visit Exporting products to a .csv.

Import images and videos

If you're moving to Squarespace from WordPress, Blogger, or Tumblr, you can import some images and videos to your site. Learn more about what content you can import and how in Importing content from WordPress, Blogger, or Tumblr.

If you import products to your site, your product images will import alongside your product details.

You may want to enable metadata importing before importing images, especially if you're a professional photographer. By importing metadata, you can manage information in a central place, like your photo editing software.

Import and export mailing lists

If you're moving to Squarespace Email Campaigns from Mailchimp or another email marketing service, you can bring your audience with you by importing mailing lists as .csv files.

To learn more about mailing list best practices and the process for importing contacts, use these guides:

You can export individual mailing lists as .csv files for use on another platform. Alternatively, you can export profiles from the profiles panel, which includes all customers, mailing list subscribers, members, and donors.


Can I sync content between Squarespace and another platform?

No. Importing adds a copy of content from an external source to your Squarespace site. It doesn't create a sync between these two sites. We recommend importing if you plan to continue using this content only on Squarespace.

Can I import and export content between two Squarespace 7 sites?

There's no direct way to transfer content, aside from products, between Squarespace 7 sites at this time.

What will import to my Squarespace site?

It depends on the platform. Generally, text and images on blog posts and pages will import. For products, information like price, dimensions, and images will import. For specifics, see the importing guides for each service.
