What is Shopify?
Shopify is an e-commerce platform that allows anyone to set up an online store and sell their products online. Vendors can sell their products in person with Shopify POS.
Shopify was founded 10 years ago by its founder, Toby, when he wanted to sell a snowboard with a then-company called Snowdevil. He quickly realized that it was very difficult to sell snowboards online without using an easy-to-use e-commerce platform. So he decided to create that easy-to-use e-commerce site himself, and Shopify was created.
Now Shopify is a leading trading platform designed for businesses of all sizes. Whether you sell online, on social media, in a store, or in the trunk of your car, Shopify is all around you. Improving shopping for everyone since its inception has been a key mission of Shopify.
