Canada’s Shopify selected to sell pot

The Ontario government announced today that Canadian e-commerce platform leader Shopify has been selected to run online cannabis sales.

The Canadian tech darling’s platform will be used for both online and in-store sales to consumers.

We believe this is a good sign that the right minds are involved in Ontario’s legal cannabis infrastructure rollout.  Shopify is known around the world as the easiest way to set up a online store. Why not use some of that same great Canadian ingenuity for a government project instead of creating something from scratch?

We think decisions like these will further cement Canada’s emerging position as the global standard of what a great legalization experience should look like.
