ShopiShopa Consulting was at Shopify Unite in Toronto, from June 20th to June 22nd 2019; this article is part of a series of short posts debriefing the conference.
On stage during the main keynote, Shopify COO Harley Finkelstein said it loud and clear: Shopify is the world's first global retail operating system!
Omnichannel by design, Shopify is a wave, a game changer: online store, physical store, social networks, augmented reality,... everything is native in Shopify!
For those who do not already know what Shopify can do, it's a too-good-to-be-true marketing statement...
But for those who are already in the Shopify ecosystem (clients, agencies, partners...), it's just day-to-day business.
In 2018, Shopify has crossed the $1 billion-dollar revenue mark.
In Q1 2019, the revenue growth is +50%.
That's what we call a wave!
