What is Shopify?

An appealing ambience, friendly employees and friendly customer service as in bricks-and-mortar retail have to be balanced out by online shops with an attractive shop design, simple ordering processes, friendly customer service and fast shipping. However, if you have neither the time nor the means for your own website with an integrated online shop, you don’t have to be left out in e-commerce. Software solutions for online shops help merchants to build a unique online shop. This includes Shopify. On the market since 2006, Shopify is one of the largest e-commerce companies with more than 1,000,000 customers worldwide. The cloud-based shop system with omnichannel marketing uses user-friendly all-in-one solutions for small and large companies, which enable almost unlimited scalability online and offline.

What is the Shopify Fulfillment Network?

The Corona crisis and the boom in e-commerce have made Shopify one of Canada’s most valuable companies. Retailers in the USA and Canada adapted to market requirements and expanded their stationary trade to include online sales. Shopify has been helping retailers since 2019 and offers an automated network of American and Canadian fulfillment centers with the Shopify Fulfillment Network (SFN). Retailers without comprehensive IT experience can rely on all-inclusive solutions and individualized templates and, thanks to networked transport and logistics structures, can also hold their own against online giants such as Amazon. Only dealers in the USA and Canada can currently register for the SFN. There is currently no announcement for a logistics network in Shopify Fulfillment Europe. So take advantage of the expertise and experience that Apiando offers you as a reliable fulfillment partner.
