products only available at the Pro level (stupid expensive for a SMB)

We have a small manufacturing startup that currently has less than 5 products and will likely never have more than 25 total products.

I tried to create a product only to realize that this would require an upgrade from our first tier paid bundle to the Professional Plan... a price increase that was shocking... and that may be the only feature the upgrade will provide us.

Is there a way to do this outside of HS? I know HS will integrate w Shopify to a certain extent. 

Ultimately I will want my customers to be able to order online anyway, so using shopify to handle those sales might be the answer. 

FYI this is B2B.

any other suggestions appreciated

thanks

Scott

Hi @slumley hope you are doing well.

upgrading HubSpot licence is always a conversation about value vs. price

I do understand that SMB can't pay PRO or Enterprise licence's

but if you are able to show value arround this conversation 'd change.

Beside this, know that with the Shopify integration with Free/Starter sales Hub

you can create products but you cannot edit them in HubSpot.

[Here is a secret you can start a trial of Sales PRO, create those 5 products and when the trial ends they 'll still be available- not editable] At least it's a hack or a starting point to show some value to your client.
