The Hydropothecary Corporation (TSXV:THCX) announced an agreement with Shopify to build an e-commerce platform for cannabis products.
As quoted in the press release:
The bilingual website will serve Hydropothecary’s medical customers, provide information for discerning recreational consumers and support engagement with provincial and territorial cannabis retailers.
“Shopify is a great fit for our business, providing an ideal way for customers to learn, browse and buy,” said CEO Sebastien St-Louis. “As we move into new markets, Shopify’s platform allows us to provide informed and engaging online experiences to new consumers, while giving us the flexibility to adapt to regulatory challenges and market variations from province to province.”
Working closely with Hydropothecary’s industry-leading customer-care team, the new platform will improve the shopping experience for medical cannabis patients by streamlining the medical registration and ordering process. Additionally, Shopify’s expertise in providing, secure and flexible ecommerce websites will be invaluable in serving cannabis consumers across Canada.
