Of course, we have saved the best til last in our week of birthday amazingness. Today, we are delighted to offer you a fantastic prize courtesy of our good friends at Shopify – the greatest ecommerce service in the history of the universe.
We have THREE FREE SHOPIFY SHOPS to give away! That’s right, THREE people will receive a Basic Shopify account with no fees to pay for 12 months. A Basic account normally costs $24 per month and you get full customisation, 100 products, 100mb of storage and unlimited bandwidth.
Shopify is a hosted ecommerce service so you don’t need to worry about security or upgrades. and you can use any payment gateway you like including PayPal, Google Checkout and a range of merchant services. It’s also 100% customisable – if you know your way around web design, you can make something to your exact wishes, but if you’re technologically-challenged there’s a huge range of free themes available for you to tweak, plus a host of talented designers.
One of the Shopify themes is even designed by yours truly – it’s called Prettify and the Super Cute Kawaii shop is based on it, as well as my own Asking For Trouble shop and Panda-san’s Miso Funky. It’s been designed with artists and crafters in mind and has also been used by some awesome folks like Ink & Spindle, Mama’s Little Babies and lots more. Just with that one theme, you can see how they still all have their own personality.
This is a great opportunity to expand your business free of charge, so don’t miss out!
