What is Shopify and how does it work?

Shopify is a complete commerce platform that lets you start, grow, and manage a business.

  • Create and customize an online store

  • Sell in multiple places, including web, mobile, social media, online marketplaces, brick-and-mortar locations, and pop-up shops

  • Manage products, inventory, payments, and shipping

Shopify is completely cloud-based and hosted, which means you don’t have to worry about upgrading or maintaining software or web servers. This gives you the flexibility to access and run your business from anywhere with an internet connection.
