Building Your Shopify Store
e-Commerce is in and brick and mortar stores are going out of business. Now is the best time to get into the world of e-Commerce and take advantage of the billions of people using the internet to do most of their shopping these days. There is a lot of work involved in starting your own business, but as long as you have a plan and accomplish small tasks everyday, your business will grow and then after you have put in the effort, you will see some massive growth.
You can start your free Shopify trial while you build your store, but you will need the basic package once you launch and want to start selling products. Until you purchase a plan, your store will be password protected and you can only unlock that option once you pick a plan, but your free trial will continue. Although this can be a way around temporarily purchasing a plan, I wouldn’t recommend pouring a bunch of time into something unless you are really building a store, so make sure you are ready to launch before you choose your plan, or at least positive that you will continue to build this store.
