Shopify – A Canadian success story

By: Jim Pettinger

Shopify is a Canadian e-commerce company headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario. It is also the name of its proprietary e-commerce platform for online stores and retail point-of-sale systems. It was founded by two Canadian entrepreneurs who wanted to set up an e-commerce website, but couldn’t find a decent platform. The rest, as they say, is history. Today, the company reports that it has more than 500,000 merchants using its platform, with total gross merchandise volume exceeding $45 billion. The company’s remarkable success was profiled by Fortune magazine in 2017.
