Furthermore, Shopify has upped international investments. It also has set a $30 million marketing campaign to build up its brand.

In May, Shopify reported first-quarter earnings and revenue that topped estimates. Adjusted earnings rose 125% to 9 cents a share, with revenue jumping 50% to $320.5 million.

Shopify stock has soared 87% from a year ago.
