With this array of improvements to its multi-channel offerings, Shopify has had to spend some cash: the firm reported a Q3 operating loss of CA$31.4mn up from $12.7mn in Q3 2017.
 
Revenue, however, has increased more dramatically over the previous year.
 
Shopify posted total revenue of $270.1mn for Q3, a leap upwards of 58% over 2017.
 
“Solid execution and continued rapid growth drove our strong results in the third quarter,” Amy Shapero, Shopify’s CFO, said in the firm’s statement.
 
“We relentlessly shipped new products and features to prepare our merchants for their biggest selling season of the year, merchants’ GMV expansion was well ahead of ecommerce growth overall, and our merchant base continues to expand at a healthy clip.”
