Free trial

If you want to try Shopify before committing to an active monthly plan, then you can sign up for a free 14-day trial.

If you don't choose a pricing plan during your free trial, then your account will be frozen and you won't be charged for anything when your trial expires. If you do choose a pricing plan before the end of your free trial, then you need to manually pause or close your store.

Who can sign up for a trial?

Anyone who wants to try out the Shopify Lite plan, the Basic Shopify plan, the Shopify plan, or the Advanced Shopify plan before committing to a full subscription.

Whether you already have a business plan in place, or you're just testing the platform to see what it can do, this trial is completely free — you don’t even need to give us your credit card details when you sign up.


If you want to learn more about Shopify Plus, you can contact us and somebody will be in touch with you.
