Should your company set up an online store? Perhaps you are considering changing your online store platform? Or do you dream of starting your own online store? It’s important to choose an online store solution that’s as user-friendly as possible for both you and your customers.

Modern customers have high expectations of online stores. If your website seems cluttered or creates obstacles when making a purchase, customers are likely to move on to a competing store.

It’s also important that your online store is straightforward and intuitive to set up, and that all modern features can be integrated seamlessly.

Reasons to choose Shopify

Shopify is one of the world’s most popular online store solutions and is used by millions of companies worldwide. This is partly because Shopify makes it easy to set up an online store, move it to your own domain, run campaigns, and monitor sales. Shopify offers payment solutions such as Stripe and Klarna, a large selection of beautiful designs, and apps that can be easily integrated.

Shopify has solutions that are suitable for all types of businesses, created to enable your business to grow. A common misconception is that Shopify is only suitable for small stores and brands, but this is far from the truth. Some of the world’s most famous brands use Shopify as their preferred platform – here are some of them.

1. Tesla

If Shopify is good enough for Tesla, it should be good enough for most people. The car manufacturer has a turnover of around NOK 159 billion, and it goes without saying that the website must maintain as high a standard as possible. Together with Shopify, Tesla has created a beautiful, lightning-fast, and functional website and online store.

2. Sephora

Sephora is a paradise for anyone who loves make-up and skin care. The company is owned by champagne producer LVMH Moët Hennessy and has a turnover of around NOK 98 billion.

3. Gymshark

With millions of followers across the globe, Gymshark is a popular fitness clothing brand and previously used Magento as its e-commerce platform. But the company soon realized it needed to switch to a new platform.

Developing the Magento store took 6-8 months. By that time, the brand had grown so much that they needed an online store that could handle the ever-increasing demand. Gymshark switched platforms to Shopify Plus, which is designed to grow with your business. Shopify is scalable and suitable for online stores of all sizes.

4. Netflix

When Netflix launched an online store with merch from their most popular series, they chose Shopify. The result was an online store with the same design as the streaming service, full of products for film enthusiasts.

5. Kylie Cosmetics

Kim Kardashian’s former makeup brand, KKW Beauty, used Shopify as its platform. So does Kylie Jenner with her brand Kylie Cosmetics. The store offers brands such as Kylie Skin and Kylie Baby.

6. Red Bull

Red Bull is another major brand that uses Shopify. They are not allowed to sell their famous energy drinks at their online store, but they do sell merchandise such as clothes and shoes with the iconic Red Bull logo on them.

7. The Economist

The Economist is a recognized weekly news magazine with around 1.6 million readers online and on print. They are best known for their online newspaper, but they also have an online shop with diaries, pens, and calendars. Their online store is made with Shopify.

8. Heinz

Heinz is best known for their ketchup, which was launched as early as 1870. During the pandemic in 2020, the company quickly saw the need for an online store so that customers could get a hold of their products during lockdown.

Heinz chose Shopify Plus because of its user-friendliness, stability, and consideration of GDPR. The online store was launched only one week after they signed the contract with Shopify.
