Frequently asked questions

Can I use Member Areas with any Squarespace website plan?

Yes, you can attach Member Areas to any website plan.

Do Member Areas integrate with Squarespace Email Campaigns?

Yes! Unlike other platforms, our Member Areas seamlessly integrate with email campaigns. You won’t need to keep member lists in sync each time a member joins or cancels their membership. Our member list is always in sync, and you can use Email Campaigns to send emails to these members.

Can I protect everything on my website?

Yes, you can protect any page on your site. However, you currently cannot protect specific files (such as images and audio tracks) from being accessed by someone who has been given a link pointing directly to one of those files.

Can I create Member Areas but not charge a fee to users?

Yes, you can choose to offer a free membership. This is often used as a lower-tier plan to offer free resources, giving members a taste of what a paid membership might look like.

Can I use Member Areas with a non-Squarespace website?

Right now Member Areas are only available with Squarespace websites.
