Shopify 3 Months for $1 Per Month Plan (2024) — Full Details

Our content is impartial, but funded in part by affiliate commissions (at no extra cost to our readers). Learn more.

Update: Shopify has now withdrawn the 3 months for $1 offer — but is still offering users extended low cost access to the platform. When you sign up for its free trial, you now get the option to get full access to Shopify for $1 for your first month. You can access the trial and this offer via this special link, or learn more about it below.

Shopify is a leading ecommerce solution for small businesses, allowing anyone to set up an online store easily. But using it involves ongoing fees, and — particularly if you’re a startup — it makes sense to keep these as low as possible.

A key way to do this is to make use of the ‘Shopify 1 month for $1’ offer, which — depending on your chosen plan — can save you hundreds of dollars on your ecommerce platform bill while you put your online store together.

The problem is that…

  • this offer isn’t always available from the Shopify website
  • it doesn’t always apply to the more expensive plans
  • it isn’t always immediately obvious how to avail of it.

The good news is that Style Factory — as an official affiliate partner of Shopify — can currently offer readers access to this special plan via our website (and better yet, a version of it that works with all the Shopify plans except ‘Shopify Plus’).

However, we should add that the offer is being trialled, and may only be available for a limited period — so if you’re interested, it’s best to avail of it soon.

Below you’ll find full instructions on how to access the plan. Enjoy — and feel free to pass this offer onto others.

The first thing you’ll need to do to access the $1 per month plan is to use Style Factory’s special signup link.

Shopify $1 for 3 months offer — FAQ

How do I get 3 months for $1 on Shopify?

Unfortunately, Shopify’s 3 months for $1 offer has now ended. However, a similar offer, which lets you use the platform for $1 for one month is now available.

You can sometimes avail of this offer direct from the Shopify website, but it’s not always available. A special affiliate partner link — like this one — can be a more reliable way to avail of it.

How much is the cheapest Shopify plan?

The cheapest Shopify plan is the ‘Starter’ plan, which costs $5 per month. This lets you sell on social media or on an existing website / blog, but doesn’t let you create a customizable standalone store (i.e., it gives you a very basic storefront that you can display products on, but doesn’t let you work with any other type of content).

Is Shopify still free for 90 days?

No — although you could use Shopify for 90 days during some of the Covid crisis, this deal has been withdrawn, and the closest offer you’ll find to this one is the $1 per month deal that Shopify makes available through its affiliate partners.

Can I use Shopify for free?

You can try Shopify for free for 3 days, after which you will need to pay for the platform. And it’s important to note that while you can build your store during the free trial period, you can’t sell anything with it unless you are on a paid plan.

How much does Shopify cost?

Shopify costs between $5 (for its Starter plan) and $2,300 per month (if you’re on its Shopify Plus enterprise plan). Most new merchants start off on Shopify’s Basic plan, which costs $39 per month (if paid for on a monthly basis). Learn more in our Shopify fees guide.

What can I sell on Shopify?

You can sell anything on Shopify that’s legal in your country and that doesn’t violate Shopify’s acceptable use policy. For some ideas on what to sell, check out our ‘Things to sell on Shopify’ guide.

Can I cancel Shopify after three months?

You can cancel your Shopify plan at any time (or use its ‘Pause and Build’ service to reduce your monthly outgoings to $9 per month while you work on a non-live store). However, Shopify doesn’t provide refunds, so if you’re paying for your account on an annual basis, this is something to give particular consideration to.
