Create, trade and sell NFT on Shopify!

New integration available in Shopify simplifies the NFT process for buyers and sellers. It is now possible to create and sell NFTs located in Polygon (MATIC) or Avalanche (AVAX) in your Shopify store thanks to the Venly app.

From creation to sale of NFT

Shopify announced Thursday that it has expanded its non-fungible token (NFT) integration, allowing millions of its merchants to begin designing, producing and selling NFTs on the Avalanche blockchain.

Using the Venly merchant app, Shopify website owners will be able to sell NFTs if they have “minimal technical knowledge,” according to a press release.

Now, Non-Fungible Token (NFT) creators have a comprehensive solution to build and sell their collections directly from their Shopify store. Thanks to the Venly app which offers a complete solution from creation to sale without knowing how to write smart contracts.

“The integration makes it easier to navigate Avalanche’s NFT blockchain ecosystem, from initial design to final distribution,” said John Nahas, vice president of business at Ava Labs, the blockchain developer. The avalanche.

NFTs created by sellers are “automatically converted into products” that can be viewed and purchased in their online stores.

Additionally, buyers do not need to have an existing crypto wallet, but will instead receive an email with a link to a newly created blockchain wallet.

The e-commerce giant unveiled its first NFT integration in July 2021, allowing merchants to sell NFT directly from their online stores rather than through third-party marketplaces.

According to Venly, NFT sellers on Shopify can also earn commissions on NFT transactions that will occur through Venly’s secondary market.

Christina Lomazzo, Head of Blockchain Ecosystem at Shopify, said: “Our growing blockchain ecosystem demonstrates our commitment to enabling merchants to sell NFTs directly through their stores, helping to increase the popularity of Web3 Engagement and expand opportunities of business”.

Adoption of cryptocurrencies requires use on major platforms

If the creation of NFT has been greatly simplified by giants like OpenSea, the possibility of conducting these exchanges on platforms more popular with the public like Shopify is a strong signal of democratization.

On the other hand, customers do not necessarily need to be crypto-savvy to purchase NFTs through this solution.

In reality, it will be possible to pay directly by credit card, after which an email will be sent with the necessary instructions to the wallet containing the purchased immutable tokens.

To receive cryptocurrency payments, sellers have the option to add Coinbase Commerce to their online store.

Also note that card payments via Stripe can be automatically converted to Bitcoin (BTC), after the company integrated OpenNode services in spring 2022.

On Shopify’s part, a partnership with Strike Wallet last April will also make it possible to receive payments directly from the Lightning Network. In parallel, the platform has released an NFT collection featuring the NBA’s Chicago Bulls.

All of these solutions, in addition to popular tools like Shopify, can gradually bring cryptocurrencies to the public, making access to the ecosystem easier.

Shopify joins a growing list of leading platforms offering digital collections. Instagram and its parent company Meta recently opened the door to the NFT exchange. The platform has given access to some beta features to a select group of digital creators, while Reddit has successfully launched an NFT marketplace.
