Lemonstand offers a 14 Day Free Trial on all of their plans.
During the trial, you can do access every feature Lemonstand offers and build your entire site, up until you activate a live store on a real domain. During the trial, you’ll be developing your store on a sub-domain like https://travel-is-life.lemonstand.com and then your paid plan will start when you publish the site to your actual domain. After you activate your real domain, your sub-domain will no longer work.
That link above is to a demo store I created on Lemonstand to compare its features with Shopify. The actual Travel is Life store is hosted with Shopify because that was the right solution for that particular store. I kept the development store online so I could reference it on this comparison site. As of writing this I haven’t yet developed a store on Lemonstand yet.
If this website is helpful to you, please click on one of the Lemonstand affiliate links (like that one) before signing up for the trial. The commission I earn on Lemonstand referrals helps pay for the cost of keeping this site updated and online.
