Does Squarespace take a cut of my sales?

There are three Squarespace plans that allow you to have an online store: Business, Basic Commerce Basic & Advanced Commerce. You are charged a 3% transaction fee on the final order total ONLY if you are on the Business plan.

Based on the current annual subscription costs, if you sell more than $3200 annually you’d break even by upgrading from Business to Basic Commerce. This means that the majority of online shops greatly benefit from the features (and 0% transaction fees) that come with being on either of the Commerce plans.
