Shopify is pulling out all the stops to boost social sales with the launch of a new tool for creators and influencers that promises to streamline commerce for digital creators and retailers on social media.

Linkpop is the global commerce platform’s answer to a growing demand from brands and creators to sell their products to audiences directly by furnishing them with the necessary tools and technology.

The tool permits merchants and creatives to seamlessly sell products directly from their link-in-bio page, serving as a branded in-app and social media storefront.

Shimona Mehta, managing director EMEA at Shopify, said: “With more than 50 million creators globally, the creator economy is booming and shows no signs of slowing down. At Shopify, we’re investing in supporting creators to build and own their brands by expanding access to our world-class commerce technology and by building tools that will help merge creativity, community and commerce.”
