In August 2021, Shopify introduced Shopify Markets, a comprehensive suite of tools aimed at empowering brands to localize shopping experiences and expand globally. Some time later, in the second quarter of 2023, Shopify made an exciting announcement by launching Shopify Markets Pro exclusively for the United States market and unveiling their plans for expansion into new countries beginning in early 2024.
Shopify Markets Pro offers an array of additional white-labeled features, powered by Global-E, that streamline the process of entering new markets and facilitate global expansion. With this advanced solution, brands can effortlessly navigate local regulations, taxes, duties, and international shipping, effectively reducing barriers to growth.
Brands have two options to achieve localization: they can leverage the robust features of Shopify Markets or explore the more advanced capabilities provided by Global-E or Shopify Markets Pro, both services offered by Global-E.
