Hi @kappertherapper Welcome to Shopify Community. 


Definitely, you don't need a subscription to build the store as Shopify offers 14 days free trial and then asks you to subscribe/pay. Shopify is a very user-friendly platform and will take hardly a day or two to set up everything. But you cannot sell products in the free trial period.

You can use this link to subscribe for the free trial. 


I hope this answer will help 🙂

Hi, @kappertherapper.


As @MarmetoCare mentioned, you can sign up for a Shopify store and start your 14-day free trial to get a feel of the platform and work on building your site. What kind of online business are you looking to start and what types of products will you sell? 


During your free trial period you can utilize our Shopify store checklist to ensure you've setup important areas of your store like shipping settings, payment settings, your domain and much more. In order to sell your products or services, you'll need to choose a monthly plan. Our most chosen plan is the Basic Shopify plan for $29/month. This plan is best suited for new businesses just starting out online. You can learn more about our monthly plans and their features here


I recommend checking out our Shopify blog resource on How to start an online store. It's a great read and shares 9 helpful tips to help get you started.

Setting up a store in 14 days is possible but my bet is 90% of people are not able to achieve this time frame considering the need to evaluate the functionality and then organise a large number of things like stock, logistics, packaging, branding, content, marketing... the list goes on.  Shopify wants to bill you regardless which I think is a bit opportunistic and not the greatest start to a relationship with new customers.
