Nearly a decade ago Shopify started an online store to sell snowboard equipment directly to those who loved the sport as much as they did.
They could have listed our products on a number of marketplaces, but 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 ourselves. 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.
Shopify focus on making commerce better for everyone, 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.
