SHOP Stock: Logistics Business Sold
The company recently sold its delivery and logistics business to Flexport, easing Wall Street worries over rising capital spending.
Flexport will be Shopify’s logistics partner under a revenue-sharing arrangement. Shopify now holds a 13% equity interest in Flexport.
Among merchant services is Shop Pay. It’s an accelerated checkout option for stores on the Shopify platform.
Shopify Capital provides loans to merchants. The new Shop Cash rewards program provides consumers with incentives, aiming to boost GMV through higher orders.
Also, the company targets big companies with its premium-priced Shopify Plus services.
Shopify rivals include BigCommerce (BGIC).
Started in 2006, Shopify in May launched a program called Commerce Components. It enables businesses to integrate Shopify’s checkout and back-office services with their existing online platforms.
