As a merchant, you may have heard about Shopify's recent announcement regarding changes to their pricing for Basic, Shopify, and Advanced plans. As a partner of Shopify, we want to help you understand why they are making these changes and what it means for your business.
Shopify was founded in 2006 with the mission to provide the best commerce tools to merchants of all sizes and make commerce better for everyone. However, the resources required to fulfill that mission have changed dramatically since then. In order to continue to provide the most powerful, innovative, and reliable tools in the industry, Shopify has had to update their pricing.
Existing merchants will not see a price change for three months, but the updated pricing is now in effect for new merchants. During their paid trial, new merchants can explore Shopify and build their businesses for as little as $1 per month.
Shopify believes that they still offer the best value in commerce and are committed to enabling more entrepreneurs and businesses to build and create across all surfaces, all around the world. They have continually raised the ceiling to outpace the impossible and provide their merchants with the tools they need to succeed.
Ultimately, this change means that Shopify does not have to compromise. Their merchants can continue to dream big for their businesses without having to worry about what is possible. Shopify thanks its customers for their continued support and pledges to keep making their platform the best place to sell things anywhere and create a culture of innovators and builders.
As a partner of Shopify, we support these changes and believe they will enable Shopify to continue to provide the best commerce tools to merchants like you. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We're here to help.
