Shopify provides enterprise access to e-commerce tools

Commerce Components
Shopify is letting retailers integrate its enterprise solutions.

Retailers can now integrate components from the Shopify e-commerce platform into their own enterprises.

Shopify is launching Commerce Components, a modern, composable stack whereby enterprise retailers (companies that typically range from $500 million to multiple billions of dollars in gross merchandise value) can take components of Shopify to integrate with their own systems. It's the first time that the world’s largest retailers will have access to Shopify’s component infrastructure, which has powered over a half trillion dollars in global commerce, the company said. 

Commerce Componentsincludes tools such as online checkout, as well as flexible APIs to build customer experiences that integrate with a retailer’s preferred back office services. The solution also features a new back-office management infrastructure designed specifically for enterprise users, as well as Shopify’s globally scaled infrastructure with over 275 network edge points of presence.

Participating retailers also receive access to a dedicated account team with solutions architects, priority 24/7/365 specialized support, and a network of agency partners and system integrators including Deloitte, EY, and KPMG.

“We’ve always approached innovation at Shopify by anticipating what retailers need, then providing those solutions,” said Harley Finkelstein, president of Shopify. “Commerce Components by Shopify opens our infrastructure so enterprise retailers don’t have to waste time, engineering power, and money building critical foundations Shopify has already perfected, and instead frees them up to customize, differentiate, and scale.”

“We know that retailers have a myriad of opportunities in the digital and data age, whether it’s the shifting digital advertising landscape or showing up for their customers in a differentiated way during a looming recession,” said Sam Roddick, Global Deloitte Digital Leader. “In challenging times, we have seen best-in-class alliances between our clients and their platform partners unlock these opportunities. That’s why we’re thrilled to work with Shopify to bring Commerce Components by Shopify to enterprise retailers globally.”

Shopify has been opening its platform for access by third-party partners. In August 2022, the Canadian e-commerce company released Shopify Collabs, a new tool designed to let independent content creators and brands connect with its retailers. Shopify Collabs builds on existing integrations with social and entertainment platforms to enable content creators to partner with Shopify-based retailers to build curated shops and share products.

When someone purchases a product using the link a creator has shared, that creator gets paid. Shopify retailers can use Collabs to discover and manage their relationships with creators, giving them a new sales and marketing channel. 

Existing enterprise retailers on the Shopify platform include Glossier, JB Hi-Fi, Coty, Steve Madden, Spanx, and Staples. View a full list of the components in Commerce Components by Shopify here.
