Shopify powers over 1,700,000 businesses worldwide
The all-in-one commerce platform to start, run, and grow a business.
The first Shopify store was our own
Over a decade ago, we started a store to sell snowboards online. None of the ecommerce solutions at the time gave us the control we needed to be successful—so we built our own. Today, businesses of all sizes use Shopify, whether they’re selling online, in retail stores, or on-the-go.
Making commerce better for everyone
We help 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.
Creating a community for impact
Shopify has grown from 5 people in a coffee shop to over 5,000 across the globe. With over 1,700,000 businesses powered by Shopify, we care deeply about the work we do. We’re constant learners who thrive on change and seek to have an impact in everything we do.
Our commitment to sustainability
We’re building a 100-year company
Shopify builds for the long term, and that means investing in our planet, our communities, and our people. Our Sustainability Fund and Social Impact initiatives include choosing renewable energy, reducing and offsetting our carbon emissions, and enabling an equitable and sustainable future by building products and programs to support our team and merchants.
