How To Create Free Shopify trial until 50 orders
Hi and welcome to this video. In this video I’m going to show you how you can create, the famous free Shopify store, with 50 Maximum orders. Note that this is not the 14 day trial, this will give you 50 free maximum orders.
So, just in brief, to achieve this, you are going to need to be a Shopify partner. If you go to Shopify.com/partners , you can sign-up as a partner. And once you sign up as a partner you’ll be able to create a store. And the store that you create through your partner account will give you 50 maximum orders. And it doesn’t have atrial period, you can use it for as long as you need to, and it will give you the 50 Maximum orders.
So , that’s the brief. So what we are going to learn in this video:
First we are going to sign up
And then we are going to create the store in the partner account
And then I’m also going to show you how you can transfer the store
Maybe you want to transfer it to someone else. You’ll see how to do that.
So let’s get started. First off, go to shopify.com/partners .
And once you get here, put in your email address to sign up for the partner program. Once you put in your email address and click on join, you can fill in your account details right here. And when you’re done, click on Create Account.
So I’m going to pause and I’m going to fill in all these details and then I’ll see you in the next step.
There we goo, I’m already signed up. In the last step if you had problems creating your password, in the last step if you had a problem with your password or you are still having problems with your password , use special characters, alphanumeric , that is a combination of numbers and letters and you’ll have a strong password that way. Your partner account, there we go.
Go to your email address and there is a confirmation there that you will need to do. Just confirm your email address right away so that you don’t have to deal with it later on. Just go to your email . The email that you’ve used for signing up. Go and confirm your email address.
I’m here, I will just confirm email. Once you confirm the email just click on, lets go to Shopify Partners. You can go to all these other places but we are interested in Shopify partners. And it’s going to bring us back to the same page where we were .
