Importing and exporting content

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

FAQ

Can I import images or videos?

Yes. Import/Export Settings are used for moving content (like posts and pages) to or from Squarespace and a third-party platform. You can bulk-add image files or videos directly to each page.

If you're a photographer, you may want to enable image metadata importing from your camera.

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 between two Squarespace 7 sites?

No. There's no direct way to transfer content 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.
