WTF is the deal with Shopify charging .5-2% EXTRA for payments?

I currently host my site/store with Squarespace and their lack of features (really, no product-specific shipping options? very few templates for online stores. No ability to create giftcards without actually purchasing one yourself? and on and on…) is starting to hold me back, so I'm looking at other options, but seeing that Shopify wants to charge me more per month AND 1-2% on all sales not made through their payment system is mind boggling.

Those using shopify, is it worth it?

Those somewhere else with a website builder that allows for a simple site and ecommerce to be set up, what do you use and why?
