Accelerate Your Success

Free Shopify training to help you build and grow a profitable business.

From first day to first sale, and beyond.

Ecommerce isn’t easy. If you’ve ever tried starting a business, you know the struggle. What are you going to sell? How will you build a brand? How are you going to drive traffic and sales?

Fortunately, other entrepreneurs like you have already been there. They’ve gone through the same struggles already, which means you don’t have to. They’ve made all the mistakes already, so you won’t. They’ve seen what works and what doesn’t, so you don’t have to guess.

Shopify Academy gives you exclusive access to experienced entrepreneurs, here to tell their story. You’ll have your very own virtual business mentor to keep you informed, accountable, and motivated.

“I’ve learned that anything you want to create is possible if you focus and work diligently to achieve it. Be brave and take the plunge… Read lots and ask lots of questions. Try things out - fail often, and as inexpensively as possible. And most importantly enjoy the ride!”

Frequently asked questions

Who is Shopify Academy for?

Whether you’re at Day 1 of starting your new business, turning your part-time gig into your full-time business, or ready to scale, you’re in the right place to learn and grow your business.

How much does Shopify Academy cost?

Our courses are free. Shopify is committed to making premium education accessible without a premium price tag.

Do I need to have a Shopify store to take a course?

No, you can take a course without having a store. That said, each course is designed so that you can follow along with your own business. Learning is easier when you follow along, so we recommend starting a free 14-day trial to improve your Academy experience.

Do I need to be technically savvy to take these courses?

No, each course has been developed and designed assuming you have no prior technical knowledge. Similarly, Shopify is a simple, easy-to-use platform and we encourage you to start a store and follow along.

I’m a Shopify Academy success story! Can I share my story with you?

We would love to hear from you. Send a brief explanation of how Shopify Academy helped you grow your business. We’ll do our best to get back to you and showcase your story in the Academy.
