This Company Is About to MAJORLY Change the Way You Shop
It turns out that shopping your Twitter feed is becoming a reality. While the social media platform released "buy buttons" last September, which allow users to shop products directly from their feed, the variety of e-commerce sites integrated with the buy buttons has been somewhat limited. That is, until now - enter Shopify.
Shopify is a Canadian tech company that provides a platform and software for online stores to reach customers and sell goods - think of it as Tumblr themes, but for creating online shops. The company works with hundreds of thousands of e-shops, including many fashion sites, so chances are, you've already bought something from a Shopify-designed e-commerce site.
Twitter is currently in the process of integrating with Shopify - meaning you'll soon be able to shop the 175,000 and counting online shops Shopify represents - and it will be as simple as pressing "favorite" on that LOL-worthy tweet your BFF posted.
Twitter isn't the only one, either - with Instagram introducing a shopping button, and both Facebook and Pinterest reportedly working with Shopify as well, it's looking like social media as a whole is about to become our favorite place to turn for our fashion fix.
Some of the brands and products you'll soon be able to Twitter-shop? Fashion finds from e-boutique Good as Gold, detox tea from Skinny Teatox and conversation-starting phone cases from Zero Gravity. So yeah, as you can imagine, our shopping addicted selves are pretty pumped.
