Eventbrite is a very commonly used third party integration for managing events. It gives you the ability to process online payments, manage your guests, and promote your events online. With Eventbrite, you do not need to reinvent the wheel. They have created a great interface that you can link to from your website that will seamlessly manage your events.

Stripe is the only payment platform that Squarespace supports, and it has beautiful customizable payment forms to handle all types of payments on your site. The Stripe platform was created for web developers, so it gives you the ability to customize the interface to your liking. It enables you to have total control over all payments that come through your site. Stripe does have fees of 2.9% + $0.30 per successful card charge but if you are looking for the best and most secure way to do payments on your Squarespace website, Stripe will be the best option.
According to Bablic, 73% of internet browsers today aren’t browsing in English. This means that your website may not be accessible to the majority of your potential customers, especially if you do business internationally. Bablic is a great integration to translate your website into different languages. They offer different packages depending on the size of your business and the number of languages you would like to have your website translated to. If your buyer personas speak several different languages, or if your business is present in several different countries, Bablic is a great translation solution.
Do you need a secure login area for your website? Many businesses require a "members only" section of their website, and Squarespace doesn't offer that on its own. SentryLogin is a great platform to use for sections on your website that need to be password-protected, and you don't need coding experience to use it. If you know how to edit your pages in Squarespace, you will be able to set up SentryLogin yourself. It is priced quite low at $4.95 per month for unlimited members, and it works well with Stripe if you're using a payment gateway on your website.

Geolify is a great tool to customize the content that people see on your website based on their location. You heard right. You can target different people with website content that is location-specific. Pricing for Geolify works by page view rather than having a contract, but if your goal is to target a specific demographic by location, this is a great marketing tool that will help you do that.
