  • Shopify earnings also have net loss coming in at -$72.80 million.
  • This is 213.79% worse than its net loss of $23.20 from the same time last year.

Amy Shapero, CFO of Shopify, says this of the Q3 SHOP stock earnings.

By carefully balancing these multiple opportunities that have different investment time horizons, we can keep investing in the innovations that will power merchants in the future while helping them grow rapidly today.”
