Using Appointment Scheduling Blocks

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

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

Does Squarespace charge transaction fees for bookings through Acuity?

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

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