How to Create a Contact Form in Squarespace

A custom form can be used for many different site-wide purposes. You can use them to ensure that your website visitors can easily contact you with questions or queries, or for creating opt-in forms that allow you to build an email list.

What's even better, you'll have a beautiful and easy to use form that goes straight to your inbox!

Form submissions can be easily sent to your email address, Google Drive, or a MailChimp subscriber list. By default, form submissions will be sent to the email address that the site owner has registered - Squarespace makes it easy!
