Word of mouth is our best form of advertising. Today, we're giving you one more reason to spread the word about Shopify: the Tell-a-Friend rewards program.

Talk, tweet and tell your friends about your favorite ecommerce platform. Your friends will get to use Shopify for free for 30 days. And as a thank-you gift, once five of your friends are paid Shopify customers, we'll waive your monthly Basic or Professional plan fee.

Here's how it works: 

Log in to your Shopify admin panel, scroll to the bottom of any page and click "psst.... want Shopify free?" to access the Tell-a-Friend page.  


The Tell-a-Friend page gives you a special link which you can send to others using Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, e-mail or any social media platform you choose. You can even set up a badge on your storefront for your visitors to click on. You’ll also be able to track which friends you've referred to Shopify, and how far away you are from a free Shopify plan. 

If you're not yet a Shopify store owner, check out our Partner Program. You can receive a 20% lifetime commission on any customers you refer. 


Fine print: Free plans via the Tell-a-Friend program do not include any additional fees charged by apps, costs incurred by buying a domain name or a theme, any transaction fees, or any other ancillary or incidental fees. Sorry guys, have to keep the lawyers happy.
