The company believes that its investments will increase revenue base, improve the retention of this base and strengthen the ability to increase sales to merchants.

Shopify provides differentiated value by offering merchants a multi-channel front end, a single integrated back-end, and a data advantage. The company would stand to be beneficial from social media, cloud computing, mobile devices, and data analytics as these create new possibilities for commerce.
