Shopify in 21 Days - Lesson 2: Getting Started

Shopify Free Trial

  • Shopify is completely free to try for a full 14 days. You don't need to enter your credit card number until the 14 day trial has expired.
  • You can use a Shopify domain until your store is setup. When starting out Shopify will ask you for a store name. This store name will be part of your Shopify domain name. Later you can switch to a custom domain name which will look more professional.
  • Enter your personal info. It is important to enter your real personal info as this is Shopify can contact you in the future. By default your personal info isn't visible on your store's pages unless you enable it. For added privacy you could consider using a P.O. Box to separate your personal info from your business.

Actionable Steps

  1. Enter your email here to begin your free trial.
  2. Create a password and store name.
  3. Choose your store plan.
  4. Optionally, enter your credit card information then hit the "Start Plan" button.
  5. Head to your email and verify your email address.
That's it! You've taken the first step towards opening your store. Your store is now ready to be designed and customized to your liking. At this point your store isn't live or accessible by anyone but you, don't be afraid of messing anything up. We still have quite a few details to tweak before we go live.

  2. Choose your time zone.
  3. Choose what currency you want your store to display. Note: this may not be edited once a sale has been made so choose carefully.
