Although Shopify has been featured in the news, many don’t know what Shopify is or how to shop on it.

Shopify is an online e-commerce platform.

This means that they offer a range of tools to help small and large businesses create beautiful online stores where they can sell products online. Shopify isn’t Amazon, though it is possible to search for products on Amazon. Shopify is not a central marketplace like Amazon so you can’t search on their website for the products that interest you. Shopify is similar to Amazon, but it does allow small businesses to sell online. As of late 2020, over 1.7 million businesses have used the Shopify platform for their online business.

Marketplacepulse shows that Amazon hosts 6.4 millions total sellers as of early 2021… but that number is misleading. There are currently only 1.5 million active sellers selling products through Amazon’s marketplace. Rest of the sellers have either removed their products from Amazon’s marketplace or stopped selling online.

Shopify is used by more than 1.7 million businesses to create online businesses. How can you get them? Great question…

These shops can be found by waiting for them to find you through your social media channels or online advertising networks such as Google AdWords. Many of these shops and brands spend large amounts of money advertising online to get your attention. Online advertising via Pay Per Click auctions is becoming more costly and more difficult for shops to sell their products.

You can also shop at Shopify stores using the search engine at Vedazzo. Vendazzo indexes products in more than 100,000 Shopify stores around the globe, with most of them located in America. You can search for more than 100,000,000 items and we will connect you to the Shopify store that sells the item. You can then complete your purchase and establish a relationship directly with the shop.

You can also use the proximity filter to search for items in shops within a certain radius of you. (You can adjust the radius to suit your needs). This allows you to shop at local businesses you might not have heard of and supports them with your shopping dollars. This is becoming more important as local businesses and towns face increasing competition from e-commerce giants such as Amazon and Walmart. The profits you make will likely not stay in your area, state or country.
