How to get ahead in ecommerce

If you’re reading this, you’ll want to learn about Shopify. You’re in luck. We’ve written a handy summary below of who began Shopify and why the e-commerce venture came about.

What is Shopify?

Put simply, it’s the world’s leading eCommerce platform. Built for budding entrepreneurs, Shopify lets you sell your goods and services online – anytime. Just starting out? Already have an established business but would like to see it grow? Shopify is about as trusted as services can get. Hundreds – if not thousands – of businesses already use Shopify to shift their product. You can use it to trade pretty much anything. Do you want to sell physical or digital products? Offer services and consultations? You can do all that and more. Shopify even lets you sell memberships, ticketed experiences, classes and lessons, or rentals! So long as it’s legal. That part’s pretty important.

Who’s behind Shopify?

The good thing about Shopify is that it was founded by people once in your shoes. Well, they weren’t exactly in shoes. Back in 2004, Tobias Lütke and Scott Lake wanted to sell snowboarding equipment online. The trouble is, the trio couldn’t find any existing e-commerce tools.

Fortunately, Lütke was a talented computer programmer. Unclipping his snowboard, he set about developing the very thing they needed. Once Lütke had built the e-commerce platform, the three launched Snowdevil. The site was billed as, “a partnership among two riders who are only interested in selling boards and bindings that they love to ride on. Nothing else.” However, Lake and Lütke soon changed their priorities.

Despite their technical know-how, the two had found building an online store challenging. So what if they could help likeminded entrepreneurs achieve their goals? With help from Daniel Weinand, Shopify was officially launched in 2006.
