About us

Shopify powers over 1,000,000 businesses worldwide

The all-in-one commerce platform to start, run, and grow a business.

Shopify story

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.

Our mission

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.

Our people

Creating a community for impact

Shopify has grown from 5 people in a coffee shop to over 5,000 across the globe. With over 1,000,000 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 global impact

We’re rewriting the rules of our modern economy

From 2016 to 2019, businesses on Shopify contributed $319 billion in economic activity worldwide. Learn how we’re making commerce a force for good.

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.
