Creating Your Homepage

Building a website might seem like a formidable task, but the Square Online Store makes this process as simple as possible. In just a few steps, you can create a polished, professional website that will put your products in their best light and boost your online presence.

To get started, go to the Website page in your Online Store dashboard and click Build a site. You’ll be shown a series of layouts with sample content. Choose the one you like most and click Next to move on.

On the next page, select a main colour from the swatches on the left. Don’t worry if you don’t see the exact colour you need – you’ll be able to change this to any colour you want after finishing the initial setup process.

Now you’ll choose a font style for your site. Check out the preview on the right to see how the different font pairings look. Again, don’t worry too much about which fonts to use right now – you’ll be able to change these later in the site editor.

Finally, upload your logo image and check out how it looks on the preview. If you don’t have a logo image yet, just click finish to skip this part. You can always add a logo image later on.

When you click Finish, your website will automatically be published to a free URL based on your business name. You can choose now to register a new domain name or connect to one you already own if you like, but you can also do this later from the Site Settings, so don’t sweat it if you’re not ready.

That’s it – your website is all set up and ready to go! Go to the Website page and click on Edit Website to begin customizing and adding your own content and images.
