05/27/2021

Afnic is joining forces with Shopify, an e-commerce company whose services allow users to start, manage and develop their online business, to accelerate and support all French retailers wanting to get started online.

Through its Réussir en .fr programme, Afnic contributes to the development of the online presence of French VSEs/SMES, retailers and tradespersons thanks to various free tools. This partnership with Shopify is part of the initiative “Je passe au numérique” (“I’m going digital”), launched last November by Afnic, which brings together calibrated offerings for an effective and controlled online presence that is accessible in terms of costs.

This new offer is available on an online page to enable retailers to find the ideal Internet address available under the .fr domain using a domain name generator and then sign up classically on Shopify. The free Shopify trial period is extended to 30 days (instead of 14) as part of the launch.

Shopify created the Shopify GO programme for its partners in France and worldwide to develop training and support modules for businesses to accelerate their digital transition and help them adapt to new market trends. Now more than ever, retailers need effective tools to reinvent commerce and offer a seamless customer experience.
