Why Does my BraveShop store say it is Closed for Maintenance?

If your Braveshop store is displaying a closed for maintenance message such as the one below, it is likely because you need to renew your online store plan. When starting your store, each member is given a 14 day free trial and once this trial has expired, you will need to purchase a plan to continue using the store. 

For further information on pricing, please see our Services Price List here: ​ 

You can renew your store by simply logging into your Bravenet dashboard and clicking on the "Renew" button found on the Online Store tile.

Follow the prompts to select your plan and check out.
