Tobi Lütke, Shopify’s founder posted a tweet earlier today about Shopify hitting a new record for the most anticipated shopping event every year. Shopify have hit a whopping $6.3b in revenue across all Shopify merchants.
Shopify has paved the way for many successful businesses, crafting the perfect system to create an online store.
Tobi mentioned that Shopify boasts the revenue at peak on Friday night was $31.M/hour, how crazy is that?! I wonder if it will top it next year.

Why is Shopify so popular?
Shopify is the leading eCommerce platform in the world right now. It’s developed such a robust, secure and scalable system that can allow anyone who uses a computer, to create an online store within days.
Using templates and systems already set up in place, Shopify has opened the gates for people to create business right from home.
With the way the world has gone over the past couple of years, people being fired from jobs and needing to work from home due to Covid. The “work from home” attitude is what people are thriving for right now.
With the likes of Shopify being available to anyone with a computer with internet, it has kickstarted new career paths and created a boom in eCommerce.
