The Brick Factory: Selling on Shopify

The Brick Factory was designed and developed by leading e-commerce development company Brickweb as a way for print on demand companies to maximise the potential of their business. As a real-time, turnkey business automation tool, The Brick Factory can be seamlessly integrated with major e-commerce platforms like Etsy, Amazon, eBay, TikTok and many more. Another one of these platforms is Shopify, which is the subject of this edition of the Brickweb blog. 

Shopify was established in Canada in 2006 by Scott Lake and Tobias Lütke. After the pair attempted to open an online store to sell snowboarding equipment, they soon found that they were totally unsatisfied by the e-commerce products available at the time. Frustrated with his experience, computer programmer Lütke decided to build his own. Shopify was born. The platform was an instant success and has experienced continual growth since it was founded. 

Shopify: Vital Statistics

  • The total figure for Shopify sales since the company was launched stands at over £447 billion. 
  • Shopify is now available to buyers and sellers in more than 175 countries around the world.
  • There are more than four million e-commerce stores on Shopify.
  • In the first quarter of 2022, the most recent figure available, the average revenue per shopper on Shopify stood at more than £74. Among the top 10% of Shopify stores, this figure rises sharply to over £282.
  • A massive 79% of all Shopify traffic originates from a mobile device.
  • Data from more than 10,000 Shopify merchants shows that repeat customers generate 300% more revenue. Though repeat shoppers make up just 21% of total customer bases, they account for 44% of revenue overall.
  • Data from BuiltWith shows that email marketing is the most successful method of generating Shopify sales. Such emails convert at an average rate of 4.29%, which is higher than pay-per-click advertising, social media marketing and SMS marketing.

The Brick Factory is a cloud-based portal that allows print on demand companies to manage every aspect of their merchandising factory in real time from any device. E-commerce stores can be populated with products from thousands of supplier databases; these products can then be customised by the seller or their customers using a powerful Design Studio before being drop-shipped.
