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 🙂

 

Please feel free to reach out to us at sales@marmeto.com in case you have any more queries. 

 

Thanks and Regards,

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.

Thats correct but most people need more than 14 days to finish setting up the store.

I work a full time job and i only have 2 days in a week to work on my store. In that case i got only 4 days to set up my store which is impossible or else i will be paying for a subscription without having a store yet.

This is crazy.

Thats $1 for 1 month. For people with full time jobs have only 1 week to set up and finish the store completely. And not only the store, don't forget the products and social media and all that. I think Shopify should lower the price for the basic plan because it's not fair paying while store is not even ready.
