When to upgrade from Business to Commerce Basic
The Business plan is ideal if you sell a few products and have basic shipping needs. If you’re on the Business plan and making over $3,200 USD in annual revenue, the Commerce Basic plan may save you money and offer more versatility.
Squarespace Commerce transaction fee savings
The Business plan includes a 3% Squarespace Commerce transaction fee. There’s no Squarespace Commerce transaction fee on Commerce plans.
The difference between a Business plan billed annually and Commerce Basic plan billed annually is $48 USD per year. If you’re on an annual Business plan and sell more than $1600 per year (around $130 per month), you pay more in Squarespace Commerce transaction fees than the difference between the plans. In that case, you’ll save by upgrading to Commerce Basic.
Professional management options
The Commerce Basic plan supports a variety of features to help you run your store efficiently as it grows, like sales by product and purchase funnel analytics. These features are also available on the Commerce Advanced plan.
When to upgrade from Commerce Basic to Advanced
To sell subscriptions, or if you have more complex shipping needs, upgrade to a Commerce Advanced plan.
The Commerce Advanced plans supports subscription products. Subscription products can help you expand what you sell, create consistent income, entice loyal customers, and attract new ones.
More shipping options
On the Commerce Advanced plan, you can use carrier calculated shipping to automatically calculate shipping costs at checkout. When your orders vary significantly in size and weight, this helps ensure your shipping charges are as accurate as possible.
Advanced marketing tools
The Commerce Advanced plan includes marketing tools so you’ll have more flexibility when promoting your products. These tools automate processes you’d have to do manually on other plans:
