All about Shopify

Shopify is an E-commerce CMS that operates according to the operation of a SAAS solution.

Shopify makes it possible to create an e-commerce shop or even a blog quickly and without technical knowledge. In just 30 seconds you can own a functional online store and receive your first payments via Stripe, Paypal or other …

This platform does not work as an open source solution like Prestashop, Woocommerce or Magento. Its main competitor is Dropizi (or Wizishop belonging to the same group).

A solution born in Canada

This e-commerce solution was born in Canada by Scott Lake and Daniel Weinand. Shopify was born from an ambition to create a simple and fast e-commerce solution to set up.

Today Shopify has more than 3,000 employees and accounted for $ 680 million in sales in 2017 with more than 800,000 companies joining the platform and revenues for merchants at around $ 100 billion.
