Invite a contributor to your Squarespace site

At some point you may want to give someone access to your Squarespace site. For example, if you’re working with me, I’ll most likely ask you to add me as an Administrator. Inviting a contributor is better than giving out your personal login details for a number of reasons, the main ones being no need to give out your password, and when you’ve finished working together you can remove them quickly and easily.


You can set different permissions for contributors:

  • Owner
  • Administrator
  • Billing
  • Website editor
  • Analytics
  • Comment moderators
  • Store manager
  • Email Campaigns editor
  • Viewer
  • Scheduling administrator
  • Scheduling view & edit
  • Scheduling view only
