All quotes from Delta-13’s Vice President and General Manager, Kristin Taggart, you can see we really like Shopify! Since we switched over to using Shopify for our online website, we have seen a great growth and improvement in our business!
ALL ABOUT SHOPIFY
“Shopify was founded in 2004 by Tobias Lütke, Daniel Weinand, and Scott Lake. Shopify development efforts stemmed from disappointment in the current ecommerce products available and a failed attempt to begin an online store for snowboarding equipment.
The product was first launched in June of 2006 advertised as a “hassle-free platform to build your ecommerce business.” Originally, Shopify was a team of 5 working as they say “out of a local coffee shop” and has grown into a “team of over 500 working in 4 offices across Canada.”

Other ways to utilize your Shopify site to get that sale:
Kristin Taggart, VP and GM: “Since we have been writing weekly relevant blogs, we have definitely seen more customer interaction both on our social media sites and through our website.”

Shopify continues to develop and grow their product to meet the demands of their growing clientele. One of these developments will be the customer option of where and how to buy either online, by delivery or by pick-up. For more information about Shopify or to start an account, visit www.shopify.com
