Shopify To Launch A Centralised Hub For Global Commerce


Shopify recently launched Shopify Markets, a centralised hub with all the tools needed for merchants to manage global commerce. Merchants will be able to use the new hub when they sell outside of their home country, and it will help reduce complexities like currency conversion, language localisation, local payment methods, and duty and import taxes.

Shopify already powers cross-border commerce for their merchants with solutions like international domains and multicurrency, empowering merchants to generate $20 billion in cross-border sales in 2020 alone. Now, merchants can use Shopify Markets to identify, set-up, launch, and optimise international markets—all from a single Shopify store.

“We believe the future of retail is retail everywhere. And with Shopify Markets, we’re making it even easier for merchants—no matter size or budget—to turn their global aspirations into a reality,” said Harley Finkelstein, President, Shopify

With Shopify Markets, merchants can:

  • Enter new markets easily
  • Increase buyer trust and conversion with tailored experiences for each market
  • Optimise cross-border operations with actionable insights and smart settings
  • Save time with a central global management platform

The new hub will be available in early access globally starting today, rolling out to all merchants in the coming months.
