Since the outbreak last year, COVID-19 crisis continues to have an unprecedented impact on communities and the global economy. As retailers close their physical store locations and people stay home to social-distance, there has been an increase in online shopping and package deliveries.
While shipping carriers continue to operate as an essential service, there may be some changes that could temporarily impact the way merchants fulfill orders. To keep businesses moving during these uncertain times, we’re happy to announce the launch of a new free online store plan to help you sell online, manage orders and communicate with customers.
If your business is impacted by measures aimed at limiting the spread of COVID-19, then you might be considering making changes to your business or moving to an online store. You can take advantage of the free online store plan by setting up a free online store for your business.
The free forever online store plan comes with major features of our paid plans but with some limitations. See details below.
Your free online store comes with a subdomain that looks like this
examplestore.invotide.com. You won't be able to use a custom URL for your online store such as
www.example.com unless you upgrade to paid monthly or yearly plan.
Single Online Store
When you signup for the free plan, you won't be able to use the multi-store feature as you will only be able to setup 1 online store for your business. You will need to upgrade to paid monthly or yearly plan to use the multi-store extension.
The free plan doesn't include access to Invotide webmail service which enables you setup corporate email accounts for your business. You will need to upgrade your free plan to paid monthly or yearly plan to access the webmail service.
