Shopify beats revenue expectations on resilient online shopping trend

Canada’s e-commerce giant Shopify Inc beat second-quarter revenue expectations on Wednesday, on the back of a resilient online shopping trend precipitated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Shopify fired on all cylinders in our second quarter, keeping our merchants well equipped to seize the opportunities presented in a post-pandemic retail era,” said Amy Shapero, Shopify’s chief financial officer.

U.S.-listed shares of Shopify rose 2% in premarket trading.

Shopify’s value nearly tripled over the last year due to unprecedented growth of the e-commerce sector as customers looked towards online shopping as the only viable alternative during the pandemic.


“I think the Delta variant and re-emergence of COVID-19 ends up further ingraining the shift to digital commerce for consumers,” said Ygal Arounian, analyst at Wedbush Securities.

“It is likely that, even if we are not getting full closures, physical shopping is one area consumers pull back on, given how comfortable people have become shopping online,” he added.

Net income rose to $879.1 million, or $6.90 per share, from about $36 million, or 29 cents per share, a year earlier. The jump in net income was due to the inclusion of $778 million of unrealized gains on its equity investments, Shopify said.


The company’s revenue rose 57% to $1.12 billion for the quarter ended June 30, compared with analysts’ average estimate of $1.05 billion, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.

This is the first time ever that Shopify’s quarterly revenue has surpassed $1 billion.

Gross merchandise volume, a widely watched figure for the e-commerce industry’s performance, rose 40% to $42.2 billion in the quarter. Analysts on average had expected $40.49 billion, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.

Excluding items, the company earned $2.24 per share, above estimates of 97 cents per share.
