If you create a store directly from Shopify then you will receive a 14-day trial period. After that, you will need to purchase a plan. However, if I create it from my partner account then you will get an unlimited trial period. Then, once the store is complete, you need to purchase a plan. They have various plans including ones that are priced at $29 per month, $79 per month, and can go up to $300 per month.

A basic plan, to begin with, is good. I have a basic plan. The basic plan starts at 29 USD per month. Depending on the client's requirements, they can choose either the basic plan or the premium plan. Based on how many products the user has, Shopify will make a suggestion as to which plan will be best. My clients definitely see a return on their investment with Shopify. With Shopify, you don't have to pay for hosting in advance. For all other platforms, including Magento, WordPress, and WooCommerce, you need to purchase external hosting. All external hosting plans range from a minimum of three months to one year. With Shopify, you don't need a specialist to configure the domain name, etc. All you need is a basic plan and you're ready to go. If you don't like the results, you can close it at any time. In summary, it definitely saves our customers a lot of money. By using Shopify, you're saving money on hosting fees and services. This is one of the biggest advantages for my clients.

This is the only platform to enforce its own transaction fee unless you use Shopify Payments Content, which doesn’t automatically reformat when you switch themes.
