Shopify is characterized by being an unlimited shelf space for sales on the Internet which means you can offer an extremely broad spectrum of products. Shopify products are anything capable of satisfying needs, including tangible items, services, and ideas depending on the requirements of the target consumer, from watches to bananas. If you are a manufacturer or a drop shipper, that does not matter as long as you can offer your top-quality products and customers appreciate it.

However, you can also offer things from a digital technology world, such as online courses, live streams, online design, digital gift cards, etc. So the options are endless.
