trying to get a refund from an accidental monthly Subscription

1 0 0

Dear Shopify support,

I signed up for a $1 for 3 trial and was messing around to see what I could do on Shopify. I thought the Shopify plan you created allowed you to create a store, and it just took a $1 fee to open each store after experimenting with my store. I never checked its subscription because I thought opening a store was a one-time fee. I should have read the fine print and realized that the account had its subscription.
Still, I was eager to start designing a website and breezed over everything. I recently got a $399 charge that took money from my bank account. I had just learned that my store was under subscription or still active when I saw the charge, as it has been inactive for the past 2+ months. I canceled the subscription when I got the invoice, but it was too late. I am a college student and don't have the funds to pay for the $399 charges. My mom and dad are pissed because I don't have that kind of money, and they are stressed about whether or not I'll be able to get it back. Shopify doesn't usually refund subscriptions. Still, I would like you guys to make an exception, considering my situation. Please let me know if there is anything I can do; I appreciate the help.
