Shopify is already popular, but it has also become the most trafficked blogspot in the United States, with over 3 million unique visitors per month, according to analytics firm traffic analytics company SEMrush.
However, the company recently announced plans to legalize it, raising the chances of a new boom for the social networking site.
According to a report published by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), over the past year, Shopify has seen a dramatic increase in traffic from U.S. citizens.
It has seen an uptick of almost 4 million visits since March, and traffic has been growing steadily for the past few months.
“While some may find Shopify’s growth and adoption of legalization and other changes to the site to be an exciting development, I think we have a much bigger picture to consider,” CEO Matt Mullenweg said in a press release on March 7.
“I think the market has already seen the changes that have been made and the changes we will be seeing over the coming months, and we will continue to see an increase in demand.”
According to Mullenwieg, the site will likely see a surge in traffic in the next few months, which will be fueled by a new partnership between Shopify and a startup called Shopify Health, which plans to sell products like prescription painkillers, skin creams, and body scrubs.
“In our vision, Shopified Health will be the leading provider of prescription pain and wellness products in the U.K., offering a broad range of products for everyone from people with chronic pain to the average Joe,” Mullenwei said in the press release.
“As we have done with all of our partners, we will always keep our eye on the customers who choose Shopify.
We will always provide the best and highest quality products and services, and the healthiest, most effective way to help them live a healthier life.”
Shopify has been slowly expanding its footprint in the marketplace since the company was founded in 2011, when it was a mere blog.
The company is now one of the top 20 most popular sites in the world, and it now offers over 2 million products and more than 10 million paid subscriptions, according Google Trends.
