What does Shopify do?
Shopify is a complete ecommerce solution that allows you to set up an online store to sell your goods. It lets you organize your products, customize your storefront, accept credit card payments, track and respond to orders — all with a few clicks of the mouse.

Shopify is a Canadian e-commerce company headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario. It is also the name of its proprietary e-commerce platform for online stores and retail point-of-sale systems.

The company reported that it had more than 600,000 merchants using its platform as of August 2017,[4] with total gross merchandise volume exceeding $55 billion.

Shopify 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 programmer by trade, instead built his own.Lütke used the open source web application framework Ruby on Rails to build Snowdevil's online store, and launched it after two months of development.

The Snowdevil founders launched the platform as Shopify in June 2006.
