Shopify today announced that customers using its e-commerce platform have collectively sold more than US$10 million in products and services online. Since 2005, Shopify has added more than 29,000 customer accounts worldwide and continues to grow its membership daily. Shopify is an e-commerce platform designed for individuals and small businesses that want to sell products through an easy to manage online storefront that does those products justice. The site is targeted at both first-time sellers and high-volume stores and provides a revenue tool that is becoming increasingly popular with Web developers.
"Shopify helps my small business process an average of 100 orders per day with minimal effort thanks to the efficient billing and tracking system built into the platform," said Carrie Bailey-Morey, owner, Callie's Charleston Biscuits. "I run my business on a part-time basis and I love that I can easily make changes to my Shopify website instead of relying on a third-party. Shopify helps me get more out of my business by letting me stay focused on important daily operations instead of website administration."
The Shopify platform allows first-time sellers to have a stylish, well-designed shop up and running in a matter of minutes that they can easily customize and change without learning Web development techniques and programming languages. The platform gives store owners complete control over all transactions and includes a detailed order tracking system that provides in-depth information on customer activity that helps them improve and manage their business.
"We are thrilled that Shopify is helping so many of our customers design and build effective online storefronts that contribute to the success of their businesses," said Scott Lake, president, Shopify. "This sales milestone achieved by our customers is a testament to the value of our platform for small business. We want to encourage everyone, from first-time sellers to seasoned e-commerce veterans, to sign-up and experience why the platform works firsthand."
Shopify features complete integration with popular online payment options and supports more than 60 countries and 45 currencies worldwide. Combined with a variety of fulfillment services and a user friendly interface, Shopify gives customers the tools to build a shop that suits their needs and create a rich shopping experience for their patrons.
