Important competition details

Competition registration runs from January 19, 2017 to February 28, 2017. After you register, the calendar months of March 1, 2017 and July 31, 2017 will be used in the calculation of gross sales. Your online store must be running on Shopify for prize eligibility.

Update

We have updated the Official Rules to ensure that the Build a BIGGER Business Competition is fair for all Entrants. The update slightly adjusts how we measure “Highest Percentage Growth” and “Highest Total Gross Sales Gain” in cases where an Entrant has no sales in March.
