The real cost of 3dcart vs. the real cost of Squarespace

A pure eCommerce platform vs. a general website builder

As a general website builder, Squarespace lacks the eCommerce tools needed for businesses to succeed in selling online. In addition to sparse features, Sqarespace limits users to a single payment processor – Stripe – with a credit card fee of $0.30 + 2.9% per transaction. Squarespace customers subscribed to their Personal and Business plans are additionally charged a transaction fee of 3% and 2%, respectively.

3dcart, an all-in-one eCommerce solution, offers more built-in cutting-edge eCommerce features than any platform, allowing merchants to easily succeed in setting up, designing, and managing their online stores. And with no transaction fees, setup fees, or hidden fees of any kind, businesses can earn more and grow faster.

Looking to grow your online store with the help of advanced features? Squarespace restricts growth in just about every way feasible, limiting shipping options to flat-rate and USPS; payment options to Stripe; and lacking important features like customer groups and recurring orders. 3dcart offers 1000+ innovative features, 160+ payment gateways, real-time shipping rates, and more, so that your business can easily grow and succeed.

Running an online store means issues can arise at any time. With Squarespace, you’ll have access to limited live chat and email support, with live chat sessions only available between 3am and 8pm EST, Monday through Friday. 3dcart offers world-renowned, comprehensive support 24/7 via phone, live chat, and email, with around-the-clock site monitoring to ensure your store is always up and running.

“Squarespace’s premise was solid, but the execution, well…I want to say that it’s lacking, but the reality is more akin to a black hole. The interface constantly crashes, website is slow to load, there’s months between any sort of update, no blog, roadmap, nothing. And their support? They’ll drop you so fast it’ll leave your head spinning”

– Ex-Squarespace customer

3dcart offers a huge library of powerful third-party apps that allow merchants to significantly extend the functionality of their online stores. With access to 400+ apps, store owners can streamline business operations, integrate with their favorite accounting software, automate taxes, start a drop shipping empire, or simplify business operations with a third-party fulfillment provider. With Squarespace, none of this is possible.
