Shopify is a Canadian success story. It was founded in 2004 by Tobias Lütke, Daniel Weinand, and Scott Lake after attempting to open Snowdevil, an online store for snowboarding equipment. Unsatisfied with the existing e-commerce products on the market, Lütke, a computer programmer by trade, decided to build his own.
Lütke used the open source web application framework Ruby on Rails to build, and launched it after two months of development.
In June 2009, Shopify launched an API platform and App Store. The API allows developers to create applications for Shopify online stores and then sell them on the Shopify App Store.[7] Several companies have developed apps that integrate with the Shopify platform.
In April 2010 Shopify launched a free mobile app on the Apple App Store in May 2010. The app lets Shopify store owners view and manage their stores from iOS mobile devices.[15] In 2010, Shopify started its Build-A-Business competition, in which participants create a business using its commerce platform.
If you’ve been waiting for the right time to start selling on WordPress, the wait is over. Now, it’s easier than ever to add ecommerce to your WordPress website, and get all the features and security that comes with Shopify.
To make setting up an online store on WordPress simple, we’re introducing three new, beautiful themes and our new Shopify Ecommerce Plugin for WordPress, all for free. These themes and our new plugin allow you to add products to any of your pages or blog posts without leaving WordPress.
As usual, you’ll still manage all of your pages and posts in WordPress, but you’ll have Shopify to manage everything else: payments, secure checkout, shipping and fulfillment, inventory, and taxes—all the hard things about selling online.
