Shopify Inc. is a multinational ecommerce corporation. The company’s HQ is in Ontario, Canada.
Shopify is also the name of its patented ecommerce platform for online shops and retail outlets. Sopify provides online retailers a suite of "payments, promotions, delivery and customer participation tools, which simplify the process of operating a small online store'.
According to Shopify, in June 2019 more than one million businesses in over 170 countries around the world had used its systems with a total amount of gross products in the 2018 calendar exceeding US$ 41.1 billion.
Shopify was started over a decade ago by Tobias Lütke, Daniel Weinand, and Scott Lake. The trio wanted to start a store to sell snowboards online. They said that at the time, none of the ecommerce solutions gave them the control to help them succeed. So, they built their own. Businesses of all sizes use Shopify, whether they’re selling online, in retail stores, or on-the-go.
According to the company, businesses on Shopify contributed $319 billion in economic activity worldwide between 2016 and 2019.
It offers several premium solutions to help accelerate business growth. One such example is the certified Shopify Plus Partner offering. This is a group of Shopify Partners with a proven track record in their niche.
