We’ve compiled detailed statistics on one of the most common ecommerce CMS platforms — Shopify. Last year, its market share surpassed 20%, and it keeps growing! We’ve already thoroughly reviewed Shopify in our article, where you’ll find a comparison of Magento and Shopify ecommerce platforms and discover an answer which platform to choose individually for your business. If you’ve decided on Shopify and think that it will work best for your store, then it’s better to explore it more in our infographic.
Did you know that more than 800,000 merchants have already chosen Shopify for their business, including such well-known brands as Tesla, Unilever, Nestle, Pepsi, while 7,000 brands work on Shopify Plus? By the way, you could check out the difference between these two solutions in detail in our blog post.
Shopify offers a range of opportunities for ecommerce merchants to extend the capabilities of the platform. For instance, 100,000 sellers use the Shopify POS (Point of Sale) system, an iPad application that allows merchants to drive sales. You could run it or sync with the online Shopify store to monitor your customers’ activity in a single place. Besides, more than 2,400 apps in the Shopify App Store help to achieve particular business goals — boost sales, get into touch with customers, increase their engagement and retention, improve shipping processes. In fact, more than 80% of ecommerce merchants install and use third-party apps.
The platform attracts a lot of traffic and sales to its e-stores. Interestingly, mobile devices generate almost 80% of Shopify traffic and more than 200 million customers purchased in Shopify shops in 2019. The average Shopify conversion rate is 3.08%, which is quite a prominent figure for the ecommerce industry. Another exciting fact is that during the last holiday season, sales in Shopify stores reached $2.9 billion; in contrast, last year, it hit $1.8 billion.
As mentioned previously, Shopify is expanding, nowadays being available in 20 languages, and its payment services are currently working in 15 countries. We’d also like to emphasize that the platform is increasing its integrations with other services and social media. For example, Shopify is now integrated with Pinterest and Facebook, and we’ve already explored in our article.
