In recent years, Shopify has made a series of acquisitions to broaden its reach. The company has injected capital into cross-media companies like Single and Crossing Minds, as well as CMS developer Sanity. In addition, the company is building social commerce products and partnering with cryptocurrencies.
For example, in May of this year, Shopify acquired shipping logistics startup Deliverr for $2.1 billion. The deal was intended to launch an end-to-end logistics platform for merchants. It was also the company’s largest purchase to date. However, it was announced last month that Shopify will lay off up to 1,000 employees in the wake of its users pulling back from online shopping.
