“The pandemic has also led to many businesses exploring new ways of operating and accelerating their digital transformation plans, while simultaneously generating a boost in entrepreneurs starting their own business and riding the ecommerce wave.”

Ocampo added: “We get a lot of questions from customers, partners, and budding entrepreneurs at Shopify about how to start something from scratch, how to prepare for sales seasons, how to balance a side hustle among a full-time job, and more.”
