Shopify has been given a license to open a retail store in South Australian town of St Albans.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has now granted the online platform a licence to operate in the state.
Shopify’s licence was approved by the South Australian Department of Primary Industries and Industries (DPIIA) and South Australian Government.
In a statement, the DPIIA said the licence was given to Shopify because the company has the necessary capacity to operate a retail business.
“Shopify has the experience and capability to meet the growing demand for locally-sourced goods,” it said.
South Australian Government’s chief executive officer Tim Smee said the state is proud to partner with Shopify and said the partnership will help boost local businesses.
Mr Smees said the deal will also allow Shopify to expand internationally.
According to Mr Smea, Shopify’s retail store will open in South Australians town of South Albans at the end of April.
