Shopify News and Updates

For ten years I ran a business solely on Etsy. It was a side gig, never carrying any pressure to provide. It funded my hobby, scratched my creative itch, and connected me to a community of like-minded makers. It wasn’t an enterprise that was designed to scale. And I didn’t want it to.

For many other makers, like the Polder family of Old World Kitchen, their craft and their livelihood are one and the same. Scaling your handmade business into a bread-winner in many cases mean taking the scary leap outside the marketplace.

Two years ago, the Polders folded their Etsy store and opened shop on Shopify and haven’t looked back. The switch helped them grow up but also out, increasing conversion, expanding to resale goods, building an email list, and owning their brand story.

A brand can't be everything to everyone. Successful businesses hone their positioning as they discover their true audience.

For Fran, the co-founder of TomboyX and our guest on today's episode of Shopify Masters, focusing on just one product line—underwear—helped her solidify her brand and the problem they were solving, while tripling the company's revenue.

Using Facebook's advertising platform, you can run ads that target people who have interacted with your business already: Custom Audiences. 

Earlier this year, Facebook updated its Custom Audience feature to help brands create Custom Audiences based on the amount of time visitors spend on their websites, and the days they visited. 

Today, we'll discuss how to set these audiences up and the best ways to use them to optimize your ads.

Nothing spreads from corner to corner of the internet quite like a good méme.

So what happens when you create a méme-based product and then launch it on Tumblr, one of the most méme-obsessed communities online?

For Jason Wong, it drove $200,000 in sales in just 3 weeks.

On this episode of Shopify Masters, you'll find out how he created and launched The Holy Méme Bible: 16 pages of the most iconic memes that include coloring pages, connect the dots, word searches, crossword puzzles and mazes.


loot crate and geek culture

No longer only the obscure interests of a passionate few, the objects of obsession found within geek culture—Harry Potter, Star Wars, Pokemon, Halo, Marvel, and many other worlds—have become wholly embraced by the mainstream. 

From the spread of Japanese anime in the west to the comic book adaptions that dominate the list of last year's top 10 highest grossing movies, to the growth of the global gaming market to an estimated $99.6 billion, it's hard to ignore the trends that are feeding the growth of geek culture.

In the middle of it all is a company called Loot Crate: a subscription service that ships a monthly "mystery box" of products that have been curated for geeks and by geeks.

The new Shopify integration with Amazon makes it easier than ever to list your products on the world’s largest marketplace and get next-level brand visibility.

While your online store showcases your brand and offers the most control over customer experience, expanding the ways you sell with Shopify allows you to do even more.

Today I'm going to take you through the step-by-step process for selling on Amazon with Shopify.

There are advantages to selling through your own storefront and through a marketplace like Amazon.

Luckily, you don't have to choose one or the other, and many entrepreneurs are reaping the benefits of taking a multi-channel approach to their ecommerce business.

With Shopify's latest integration, merchants can now add Amazon as a Sales Channel in their Shopify store, which will let you create Amazon listings from existing products, sync inventory tracked by Shopify with your Amazon listings, fulfill Amazon orders from within Shopify, and more.

Our guest on this special episode of Shopify Masters is Brandon Chu, a Director of Product at Shopify focused on platform integrations, who will be talking about how to successfully launch with Shopify's latest Amazon channel.

At first glance, online marketplaces like Amazon and eBay seem to be a creation of mutual benefit. Ecommerce store owners gain increased exposure for their products, and the marketplaces gain an expanded product range without having to increase inventory.

There are, however, some pros and cons that apply across the board.

In this post, we’ll explore those pros and cons, so you can make the decision of whether or not to sell on marketplaces, well-informed of the upsides, downsides, and differences between Amazon and eBay.


2016 memes

2016 was a strange year to be alive.

Meme culture extended well beyond teenage inside jokes this year. It transformed into a powerful force that affected public policy and spread ideas at unprecedented speeds. Memes also became powerful tools for growing businesses faster than ever.

Every time a new meme emerged this year, there were entrepreneurs worldwide brainstorming ways to cash in.

We took a look at our data to put into perspective just how big memes were for businesses this year.

The NFL recently announced that they’re going to start selling branded gear that celebrates “micro moments.”

"The excitement in every record or amazing play is there, but the half-life of each moment is so short, you have to do what you can to capture it," Chris Halpin, the league’s senior VP of consumer products, told ESPN.

But you don’t need to be at the helm of a multi-billion-dollar entertainment empire to sell real-time products that your tribe will love. There’s a great deal that any ecommerce seller can learn from the micro moments trend. And there are always trending memes that you can take advantage off.
