Shopify is officially the king of the e-commerce platform market surpassing 1,000,000 merchants who use its platform worldwide (as of Nov 2019). So how has Shopify grown to over 1m online stores? Put simply it is one of the easiest to use e-commerce platforms available for non-tech minded individuals whilst still offering advanced programming in it’s native liquid language for the more tech savvy individual/programmer & developer.
Shopify’s real strength lies in the very community of merchants it is building with an extensive user base constantly developing apps and code to improve the experience of merchants and their customers. The app store as a result now has over 1200 apps your store can use to improve its conversion rate, speed, SEO, content and functionality. The shopify app store is similar in nature to the App store on your iPhone where developers are constantly working to improve the user experience through app development in the case of your iPhone or your Online Store in the case of the Shopify App Store.
