Using Acuity Blocks

Use Acuity Blocks to embed client schedulers visitors can use to book appointments without leaving your site.

Although you can integrate the Acuity scheduler with your site, Acuity and Squarespace are separate platforms. Bookings and payments are managed through your Acuity account, which you'll need to create before you get started.

Acuity Blocks are a Premium feature available in Business and Commerce plans.

Copy your Acuity URL

Tip: You need an Acuity account to integrate the scheduler with your site. If you don't already have one, sign up.

To set up the Acuity Block, you'll use the URL for your online scheduling page. To copy your Acuity URL:

  1. Go to acuityscheduling.com and log into your Acuity Scheduling account.
  2. Click Client’s Scheduling Page, then click Scheduling Page Link.
  3. Copy the link beneath General Scheduling Page to embed your scheduling page.
  4. Click through other link types under Direct Links & Embedding to embed buttons and other widgets.

Does Squarespace charge transaction fees for bookings through Acuity Scheduling?

No. Acuity Blocks are separate from the Squarespace Commerce platform, so purchases aren't subject to Squarespace transaction fees.

Can I use the Acuity Block with the free Acuity Scheduling plan?

Acuity Scheduling’s basic, free plan (“Freebie”) doesn’t support embedded calendars. To use Acuity Blocks, you’ll need to be on a different plan.
