With this acquisition, we have become the largest Shopify agency in Switzerland.

A strategic move to strengthen the e-commerce capabilities

This expansion comes at a pivotal time as digital commerce continues to grow in importance. eCommercify has been a prominent player in the Swiss e-commerce industry for almost a decade. Their track record speaks for itself, having launched hundreds of online shops and served over 300 satisfied customers.

What this means for the eCommercify clients

As part of what., the eCommercify clients can expect the highest level of our service. They can tap into our combined expertise and end-to-end service offerings.
