CONTRIBUTORS TO THIS PROFILE
Shopify is a commerce platform that allows anyone to easily sell online at a retail location and everywhere in between. It offers a professional online storefront, a payment solution to accept credit cards, and the Shopify POS application to power retail sales.
Shopify was started with a single store. The company then built their own eCommerce software as they were unable to find software with the required qualities.
Shopify received $122 million in series A, B and C funding from OMERS Ventures, Insight Venture Partners, Bessemer Venture Partners, FirstMark Capital, Felicis Ventures, and Georgian Partners.
Today, Shopify powers over 100,000 online retailers, including General Electric, Amnesty International, CrossFit, Tesla Motors, Encyclopaedia Britannica, Foo Fighters, and GitHub.
Merchants use Shopify to manage all aspects of their shops, including uploading products, customizing the design, accepting credit cards, and viewing their incoming orders and completed transactions.
Shopify was founded in 2006 by Tobias Lütke, Daniel Weinand, and Scott Lake.
