As of this morning (NZ time), Shopify announced measures to help play their part in helping people in this time of uncertainty.

The biggest part of their announcement was extending the FREE trial of their platform from 14 days to 90 days, essentially giving your 3 months to get your store set up and going without paying the standard $29/month USD (approx $40 NZD)


I have already been in touch with Shopify and they have told me that you can sign up and get started right away, you will start on the 14-day trial but you just need to contact them to extend it to 90.

Another aspect of their announcement was that they are opening up the ‘Gift Card’ feature to the basic plan which generally is only available to the more advanced plans.

If you don’t have the time or want to try to do it yourself, then I can set it up for you and help you get started, depending on the scale of the store I could do it for no fee to potentially a small fee. If you sign up through my link I can make myself available in answering questions you may have and guide you through the process. If you are unsure I put together an article of 7 reasons why you should use Shopify
