Avalanche NFTs Are Now Available on Shopify



the scope of NFTs

Avalanche NFTs have landed on e-commerce giant Shopify as merchants can now design, mint, and sell Avalanche-based non-fungible tokens directly from their stores.

According to the announcement made on Thursday, January 5th, Shopify merchants can diversify their store offerings through NFTs through the Venly merchant app. Customers can buy NFTs just like they buy other stuff.

Shopify Merchants Will Create NFTs

With this expansion of Shopify’s NFT integration, Avalanche NFTs are now available to Shopify merchants who can now design and mint NFTs with minimal technical knowledge by using the newly-launched Venly app. NFTs created by merchants will be automatically turned into products and available for trade in the store.

The Venly integration will also simplify the buying experience for Shopify users. There will be no need of having a pre-existing digital wallet as many integrations like Coinbase Commerce are available to provide buyers the option to purchase NFTs with crypto.

After the purchase of an NFT from Shopify, buyers will get an email with a link to a new wallet that will contain the NFT and can be sent to any other wallet.

The e-commerce giant is not new to NFTs. It launched its first NFT integration in July 2021, allowing merchants to sell NFTs directly from their stores, and partnered with NBA’s Chicago Bulls to launch an NFT collection.

Shopify has recently onboarded the Venly app to its app store to extend its NFTs integration. Christina Lomazzo, Blockchain Ecosystem Lead at Shopify, commented:

“We’re happy to welcome Venly to the Shopify App Store to help merchants build new and creative commerce experiences through Avalanche NFTs. Our growing blockchain ecosystem demonstrates our commitment to supporting merchants as they sell NFTs directly through their storefronts, helping to further grow participation in Web3 and expand what’s possible in commerce.”

Venly is a blockchain technology provider that offers a comprehensive technology stack for businesses to onboard them on web3.

Tim Dierckxsens, CEO & co-founder of Venly, stated:

“With Shopify’s vision to make commerce better and our goal of making blockchain simpler, we offer businesses an accessible point of entry to both. The Venly Shopify NFT App provides users with the exciting opportunity to engage in Web3 eCommerce regardless of their technical expertise. Being a blockchain that is very fast, low cost, and eco-friendly, Avalanche was an obvious choice for us to provide businesses an excellent NFT sales solution.”
