Step 2: Pick the Right Shopify Plan

Step 2: Pick the Right Shopify Plan

Shopify offers a few different monthly and annual pricing plans to pick from which you can see here. This page breaks down what's included with each plan, as well as their respective rates/fees. I highly recommend going with the $29 "Basic Shopify" plan to start if this is your first attempt at ecommerce, since you can easily upgrade at any time, once you start getting some sales.

Shopify Pricing - Plans

If you're not based out of Canada, scroll the the very bottom of the page and in the very right-hand corner, there's an option to change your location to view plans and features available in your country/region.. 


To pick a Shopify paid plan: login to your Shopify account > go to "Settings" > Click into "Account" > and click "Choose Plan" or "Compare Plans". When you pick a plan, it will prompt you to put in your credit card details. You will not be charged until your trial period (14 days) has expired. That means you have 14 days to complete the steps in this guide before being charged for the plan you picked. If you decide that Shopify isn't for you, then you can cancel/close your store from the same Account Settings page (at the very bottom) before the end of your 14-day trial, and you will 100% not be charged anything.
