Shopify was founded in 2006 and currently powers over 175,000 businesses in approximately 150 countries. It is a cloud-based, multichannel commerce platform designed for small and medium business. Merchants can use it to design, set-up and manage their stores across multiple sales channels, including web, mobile, social media such as Pinterest and Facebook, brick-and-mortar locations and pop-up shops. The platform also provides merchants with a powerful back-office and a single view of their business.
Today, there are a growing number of aspiring young entrepreneurs who maximize various free platforms to showcase their products. Online sellers prefer these free sites because of their limited funds for operations, but it may not be the easiest and most efficient way to manage their operations especially if they have work during weekdays.
