This Shopify offer should help retail business owners, who are understandably seeing a sharp drop in their revenue at the moment, take the time to move their retail store online. It’s also a great time for individuals who are stuck at home, with or without pay, to start building a new online store with Shopify.
Before this offer, Shopify used to offer a 14-day trial to new customers. If you’re a current Shopify user on a 14-day trial, you can extend your trial to 90 days as well.
As a leader for selling products and services online, Shopify’s customer base is in a position to take advantage of the closing of retail shops. Other measures taken by Shopify to help its customers include making physical and digital gift cards available to all its new and existing Shopify plans and providing $200 million in small business funding through their Shopify Capital service, which is currently available in the United States and the United Kingdom.
Shopify itself is operating as usual. At this time, Shopify does not foresee any impact on any of their critical systems, infrastructure, or teams. Shopify continues to offer support to their merchants and partners to help them keep their business online and running.
