When you set up your free trial account, you have full access to all the features of Hike.
Do keep in mind that, although you have signed up to a trial account, you will not need to re-create any account information when you wish to create your normal Hike account. Your trial account will become your active account. Certain data can be purged, but the main information you set up will carry forward to your live, functioning account.
START YOUR TRIAL
To get started is very easy. On your computer, go to the Hike website, and simply click Try Hike for free
You will be asked to complete the following information -
- First name & Last name
- Email Address
This is the email address that you will use to login to your store, reset passwords and send invoices (once you have subscribed)
This is where your first outlet is located.
The length of your password can be from 6 to 10 characters.
Click on CONTINUE to continue.
- Store Web Address
This is where you’ll enter a unique store name for your Hike account. A tick suggests that the name you have chosen is available to use. Your store name must start with a letter, and have at least 2 letters to be validated. The length of the store name can be up to 30 characters long.
You can then choose to create a Hike store with demo data or not. If you’d like to see how Hike works without importing your own products, you can choose "None. Create my trial without any demo data".
Congratulations! You have now completed the steps to activate your Hike account.
