What is Shopify?

Shopify helps people achieve independence by making it easier to start, run, and grow a business. We believe the future of commerce has more voices, not fewer, so we're reducing the barriers to business ownership to make commerce better for everyone. Merchants use Shopify to design, set up, and manage their stores across multiple sales channels, including mobile, web, social media, marketplaces, brick-and-mortar locations, and pop-up shops. The platform also provides merchants with a powerful back-office and a single view of their business, from payments to shipping. The Shopify platform was engineered for reliability and scale, making enterprise-level technology available to businesses of all sizes. Founded on Algonquin traditional territory in Ottawa, Canada, Shopify currently powers over 1,700,000 businesses in approximately 175 countries and is trusted by Indigenous Entrepreneurs such as Manitobah Mukluks, Cheekbone Beauty, Sisters Sage, SheNative, Tania Larsson, and many more.
