Pricing plans by Shopify
As we have already mentioned, Shopify offers a wide range of plans to choose from and lets no one down when it comes to pricing and features.
Well, this is not technically a plan as the name suggests, but even then this is what gives you an idea of the benefits that Shopify offers. If you want to clear your doubts about Shopify, this plan offers a free-trial period of 14-days during which you can get an idea and understanding of the features and services provided by Shopify.
During the trial period, you will be allowed to set up your store, but as per Shopify conditions, you won’t be allowed to sell anything from your store. Another very important thing that you should know about Shopify free-trial is that it starts the moment you complete your sign-up process. You can set-up your Shopify store during the trial period, but if you want to start selling you will have to pick one of the paid plans to be all set to sell your products.
Shopify LITE is the most affordable of all the Shopify plans and is ideal for merchants who use external sales channels. With a price just $9/month, Shopify LITE offers almost the same feature set as Basic Shopify. The main difference is that the Shopify Sales channel is not supported. So, you cannot use Shopify as an online store with Shopify LITE. You can, however, sell through channels like Facebook, Instagram or LiquidBlox.
Visual website builder LiquidBlox is used to turn your website into an online store. This solution gives you full creative freedom with the lowest price on Shopify.
Another way to use a website as the sales channel is to embed Shopify Buy Button on any website. Keep in mind that you can only have one Buy Button per page.
Shopify LITE is a hidden gem. It is not heavily promoted, but it is actually quite powerful.
