Pros

I love that’s its platforms that helps you grow your business in an edgy and very appropriate way. They have amazing templates to choose from.
Beautiful aesthetics; bountiful elements for customization; Squarespace takes care of keeping platform current with browser updates; mobile and desktop friendly; ability to have online store.
Overall, I would highly recommend Squarespace. It’s a great solution to build a website that is professionally designed yet customizable and easy to update on your own for an affordable price.

Pros

It's easy to use and customizable. Looks good, feels nice to use and looks great on the mobile.
Most of our products are unique one of a kind individual items which require perfect inventory control. Cart 4 has maintained perfect in stock and out of stock records.
It is very easy to use and I have been extremely happy with X-cart 4. The customer service is absolutely the best.

Cons

The options are limited. Editing pages can be difficult because everything needs to be dragged and dropped into place, but most of the time all of the other blocks will shift during editing.
One of my colleagues who is taking over for me, really disliked how the Squarespace template prevented any changes. He contacted Squarespace and with their assistance was able to break the template.
The flip side is that Squarespace has few if any bugs, while Wix and Weebly can get strange errors in my experience.

Cons

It took over a month just to set-up a testing dev environment. Support is often clueless of issues and communication is very poor.
Localization there are few things which seems missing or I am not aware of other features.
The bookable module in the business license version also has limited functionalities.
