Nearly a decade ago Shopify started an online store to sell snowboard equipment directly to those who loved the sport as much as them. They could have listed their products on a number of marketplaces, but they wanted to own their brand and build relationships with their customers, along with selling their goods. Such a tool didn’t exist, so they built it for themselves.
They soon realized a number of other stores were in need of a hassle-free platform to build their retail business, and Shopify was born. Making commerce better has been their mission ever since, so businesses can focus on what they do best: building and selling their products. Today, merchants use their platform to manage every aspect of their business — from products to orders to customers, selling online, in retail stores, and on the go.
