Tech Update – March 2020
In light of the current state of the world and Small Business, in this month’s Tech Bytes we will be focusing on the special offers and COVID-19 support currently offered by different companies and platforms.
Extended 90-day free trial for new merchants. In order to help new merchants move their retail stores online, Shopify are offering a 90-day free trial for all new customers. If you’re currently on a 14-day trial you can extend it to 90 days.
You may already be aware of this one, but if you are on a Canva Pro monthly plan, Canva gives you the option of pausing your subscription during times of low cash flow (like COVID-19).
In response to COVID-19 SiteGround have launched a special hosting offer – new customers can get up to 3 months of the StartUp hosting plan at just 0.99 AUD.
What are the special offer terms?
