Shopify webshops: A German-Canadian success story

Shopify is the product name of the company of the same name, which sells its online store system to small and medium-sized companies worldwide. The Canadian company was founded in 2004 by the German entrepreneur Tobias Lütke and other business partners. He had previously emigrated to Canada and found his new home in Ottawa. The vision of the founders almost 20 years ago was to create online stores in less than 20 minutes! At that time, there were still high barriers to entry into the e-commerce market – especially for small and medium-sized companies. It usually takes months to open your own online store. Tobias Lütke and his team wanted to change that. Hardly anyone would have dared to dream of a success story at that time. Today, the vision is pure reality! And this is how it happened:

To make the platform better known, Tobias Lütke launched a competition that quickly made waves in the online world. The prize – 100,000 dollars in prize money and a MacBook Pro. The winner was to be the Shopify online store that generated the highest turnover in two consecutive months. As a result, the software provider’s usage figures rose rapidly for the first time. This was followed by further clever sales strategies. In the meantime, more than one million customers have opted for the Shopify solution and successfully entered the e-commerce market. The IPO followed in May 2015. As a result, the market value of the Canadian software company rose to 11.6 billion US dollars.

Demand continued to rise in the first half of 2020 as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic. Shopify shares are traded on the New York Stock Exchange at a value of 110 billion US dollars – a success story. In June 2020, it was also announced that the Canadian Shopify company and Walmart, a global US retail group, had entered into a pioneering cooperation. Shopify merchants can now also offer their products on Walmart Marketplace.

So today we will explain the advantages, functions and options that the system currently offers you.

Quick and easy access

Users have functional options for professional online trading at their disposal. In addition, regular product and content maintenance is clear and easy to carry out. With the help of different log-in data, managing directors, employees and external Shopify agencies can work on your store in parallel.

Shopify Theme Store

Shopify themes demonstrate a high level of design. They are based on a flexible template engine. It is therefore relatively easy to adapt your own design ideas and wishes. This is important, because you will certainly want to adapt your online store to your company’s corporate design so that the new web store can be easily integrated into the existing design of your website. In addition, the templates offered in the Shopify Theme Store are subject to strict quality control. Even with a standard template, good-looking stores can be realized in a very short time.

Diverse payment providers

In addition to the quality of products and services, the choice of payment method is also important to customers in online retail. Before placing an order, customers should therefore find out exactly which payment providers are available. The topic therefore also has an indirect impact on your company’s profits and turnover. However, the software provider is also well positioned here. It supports common payment providers such as PayPal, prepayment, purchase on account, Sofortüberweisung, Amazon Payments or Stripe. With just a few clicks, you can add the respective payment providers to your own store and manage them easily.

Integrated marketing tools

Anyone who runs an online store needs to be fit in marketing or be supported by an online marketing agency. In addition to basic marketing knowledge, the creation of your own store also involves the planning of suitable advertising measures and the use of integrated marketing tools that are made available to Shopify customers. This allows you to run a blog and add lively product descriptions with high-quality images. In addition, common marketing and analysis tools can be integrated into your store system. An extremely important factor and a real plus point in day-to-day work! The marketing tools are used to implement marketing campaigns and for controlling. There are interfaces to Mailchimp, Facebook Store, Google Analytics and Google Shopping – to name just a few.

App extensions

You can add various tools to your online store. Live chat functions for customer support, SEO tools or invoicing and delivery note systems can be integrated. Here, too, new options are constantly coming onto the market. You should therefore keep yourself regularly informed about new extension packages. We will be happy to inform you in our blog.

In your case it is different! The Canadian e-commerce company takes responsibility for security and maintenance for all its customers.
