Access to codes so you can modify your design extensively (if you know codes or working with a coder).

Once you select a template, you cannot change it without having to rebuild your content.

URL structure is not as pretty. But Wix webpages are fully crawlable & indexable by search engines (e.g. Google).
eCommerce only integrates with Stripe (payment processor).
Update: Squarespace is now fully integrated with PayPal and Apple Pay.
While Weebly is easy to use, their tutorials / user guides are not very detailed or comprehensive.
Not a true drag & drop user interface. But you can still insert content into your website just fine.
