Shopify is growing fast.
The first Shopify store did what it was supposed to, and it did it well. After seeing its success, the team realized that they could provide this tool to others, and help them sell their products online. Shopify stands for simplicity, elegance, and common sense, and hopes to infuse those qualities in everything they do.
Today, over 17,000 active online stores in 80 countries are powered by Shopify.
In October 2011, Shopify closed a $15 million Series B round from Bessemer Venture Partners, FirstMark Capital, Felicis Ventures, and Georgian Partners. This was 10 months after closing a $7 million Series A round in 2010.
