How to use Shopify for project proposals

Dear community members,

How can I use Shopify to create proposals for potential customers?

Do I need to pay myself in order to have a test running before the customer commits?

Should I have 2 week free trials per customer? Is that possible?

I usually show them a quick test and if they wish to continue with my services, I buy a proper Shopify plan for them. But this is after they signed up for my offer.

I usually like to add their logo and a couple of their future products...

Any suggestions please?

Many thanks,

Christina

Hi @tinipixi,

Ted here from Shopify, thanks for posting your query! 

It sounds as though you may not be aware of our Shopify Partner programme. The Shopify Partner programme grants you free Shopify accounts so you can help develop stores for clients. This programme is mainly used by developers and affiliates and you're more than welcome to sign up! There's no trial limit, so you wouldn't need to ask the client to buy a plan straight away after 14 days. You can take your time, promote or showcase the store and you can transfer the store to a client easily while making an earning for yourself after they choose a plan. I'd recommend checking out our Partner FAQ guide for more info for sure!

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know, I'm happy to help!

Many thanks,

Ted | Social Care @ Shopify
