It’s impossible to talk about ecommerce without mentioning Shopify. Their pre-made templates and backend support have helped bring more than 20,000 storefronts to life—storefronts that generated more than $275 million in online sales in 2011 alone.
Shopify’s impact on the ecommerce industry helped earn them recognition as one of the most innovative companies on the planet. In Fast Company’s annual list of “The World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies,” Shopify claimed the number 9 spot in the retail category, joining the likes of Amazon, Square, and Patagonia.
