About Shopify

Shopify is built for the next generation of dreamers. Over a decade ago, the company was created by a young entrepreneur named Tobi who wanted to sell snowboards online. Unable to find tools to create an online store, he wrote software to build his own. Realizing his software could help others sell online, he made it available and called it Shopify. That technology now powers more than 1.7 million businesses worldwide, helping them sell their products online and in stores.

Shopify’s goal is to make entrepreneurship accessible and better for everyone.
