Art Storefronts vs. Squarespace

A COMPARISON OF ART-SELLING TOOLS AND FEATURES

Overview

Squarespace, a content-management platform founded in 2003, often points to the ease of setup as their most important feature.

We don’t doubt it, but our question is: what exactly are you getting after the setup?

By developing their platform for ALL categories of brands and businesses (from lightbulb manufacturers to podcasts), you’re getting software that’s marketed for everyone, but is specialized for no one – especially not for artists.

Pop the hood, and you'll find Squarespace has a serious lack of industry-standard eCommerce features (such as “Email a Friend” and favorite/wish lists). All of which says to us that while Squarespace may be suitable for a pretty-looking portfolio site to show off your art, it's significantly underpowered when it comes to helping you actually SELL your art.

But don’t just take it from us. Explore the charts below for a feature-by-feature comparison of the two platforms.
