Squarespace Updates: PayPal, SSL & New Templates

Last week Squarespace announced a list of new features, integrations and templates which got lots of website owners talking! In case you’ve missed the grand news, here’s a few things to be excited about and look forward to: 

Squarespace Updates: PayPal, SSL & New Templates

 

PayPal & Apple Pay

Now you can sell more to anybody around the globe and be sure that your shoppers have a faster checkout experience and more variety in terms of payment via PayPal (which was launched in beta) and Apple Pay (available since September). You can easily customize your checkout page with your branding and provide your users with a seamless and pleasant experience for higher sales. 

Also, we’re excited to announce that we’ve added a shop to Black Onyx! See it here!
If you’re currently using Black Onyx and would like to add this feature to your website, please consult our documentation for more information and guidelines.  

SSL Security for your site

Online security is the number one priority for most users. Website owners should not have to pay extra or struggle with complex technical processes while trying to offer basic security to their website visitors. Now you can enable SSL (Secure Socket Layer) for free on all Squarespace websites. This brings confidence to your users while browsing your site, and also promises to boost your SEO and search rankings. Read more about SSL here, and check out our SEO for Squarespace series for tips and tricks on ways to get more traffic on your website.   

Over 20 New Templates

A multitude of new templates are available for various types of users: small businesses, professional services, food & drink, magazine-style layouts, and simple & interactive portfolios.
 

These are the major announcements and integrations that we wanted to highlight for you. In case you want to dive deeper into the features and products that Squarespace has available for its users, check out their blog here.
