Per Shopify Corporate numbers dated 31 December 2010, there were 11,323 active merchants using Shopify as their ecommerce solution.
Those stores had over 2.7 million customers, who placed 1.6 million orders in 2010, generating $124 million in sales within that year, which was double the sales on Shopify stores in 2009.
Year over year, the raw numbers and percentage increases of Shopify merchants’ stores, total online sales through the Shopify platform, and total number of online orders placed on the Shopify platform from 2009 to 2010 were:
1. Number of Shopify merchant stores: 6,656 (2009) -> 11,323 (2010) [a 70% YOY increase]
2. Sales through Shopify: $59 million (2009) -> $124 million (2010) [a 110% YOY increase]
3. Number of orders processed through Shopify: .69 million (2009) -> 1.6 million (2010) [a 132% YOY increase]
I have been using Shopify since the early days, being one of the top RoR, or Ruby-0n-Rails, ecommerce applications. I have found it to be stable, easy to use, fast and dependably reliable. It is easy to customize and develop for. Very quick and easy to get started, and a store gets up and running quickly. I am available to share all that I have learned about running Shopify. Feel free to drop me an email.
