Let’s all take a moment to take this in because this is thanks to businesses like yours and the spirit of entrepreneurship you exemplify.
Shopify has announced they hit a new milestone on October 29, 2019. 15 years after Tobi Lutke’s first store, SnowDevil, launched in 2004, what has now become Shopify has hit 1 million merchants on the platform.
Think about that:
One. Million. Stores.
This is extremely exciting.
In an age of eCommerce and retail giants, people like you have taken the leap to chase your calling. You have stood up against the big players and carved out your piece of the market. The power of your voice and your niche make you stand out against the giants. You’re an example for entrepreneurs everywhere.
“More than a million merchants are now building their businesses on Shopify, as more entrepreneurs around the world reach for independence,” Tobi said. “These merchants chose Shopify because we’re making entrepreneurship easier, and we will continue to level the playing field to help merchants everywhere succeed.”
At the Q3 earnings call today, it was announced that the total revenue made in the last quarter was $390.6 million, a 45% increase from the comparable quarter in 2018.
