Interview with Tobi Lütke, CEO of Shopify, as its market cap has surpassed eBay, and it sets its sights on Amazon, building out its own fulfillment network
Shopify has attracted more than 800,000 merchants to its platform. Moving beyond a marketplace matchmaker, it is an enabler of exchange, offering tools to build a website, list products, and process payments.
Shopify is now more valuable than Twitter, Square and Spotify. Its market cap — now more than $40bn — surpassed eBay's and the company is looking to take on logistics next. Solving logistics could be a huge boost for small businesses.
