Shopify is a Canadian e-commerce company headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario. It is also the name of its proprietary e-commerce platform for online stores and retail point-of-sale systems.
Shopify was founded in 2004 by Tobias Lütke, Daniel Weinand, and Scott Lake, who were then operating a web design company called Snowdevil. Shopify accepts bitcoin as a payment method.
In November 2013, Shopify partnered with BitPay to allow its merchants to accept bitcoin as a form of payment on their websites. On 19 January 2018, Shopify announced that it would start accepting bitcoin as a form of payment on its platform.
This move was widely seen as a way to increase adoption of bitcoin among mainstream merchants.
