The main reason for this performance is that analysts expect the company’s growth to slow as demand for e-commerce solutions declines.

The company has seen the number of new merchants slow while the number of buyers has also slowed. In the most recent quarter, the company’s revenue of $1.2 billion was about $36 million below analysts’ expectations. Likewise, its earnings per share missed by 45 cents.

During the quarter, its subscription solutions grew just 8% to $344 million, while its merchant solutions revenue grew 29% to more than $858 million. The company also moved into the logistics sector by acquiring Deliverr.

All in all, Shopify has done relatively well in recent years. Its total revenue has grown from over $2.9 billion in 2020 to over $4.6 billion in 2021. Its profits have grown from over $319 million to over $2.9 billion. dollars.

Additionally, Shopify has lagged due to the ongoing inflationary pressure that has affected most retail and e-commerce businesses. Last month, companies like Target, Walmart and Kohls warned of the state of the industry. Since most Shopify merchants are small businesses, it’s likely they were hit harder.
