The Shopify share price has struggled so far in 2022 as ecommerce growth slows, but analysts remain optimistic about the stock’s long-term performance. The company, which helps ecommerce firms sell products online, settled a $2.1bn acquisition of Deliverr that is expected to help improve supply chain visibility in its fulfilment business.
Shopify [SHOP] shares have tumbled back down to pre-pandemic levels after the group missed first-quarter revenue and earnings estimates.
The company reported a revenue rise of 22% year-over-year to $1.2bn on 5 May, which narrowly missed analyst expectations of $1.25bn. A significant drop in earnings, which came in at $0.20, also failed to reach forecasts of $0.63.

Merchant solutions revenues climbed 29% to $858.9m, with more demand for Shopify Payments, Capital and Markets as merchants looked to ramp up cross-border services.
Shopify also announced a $2.1bn acquisition of San Francisco-based logistics startup Deliverr, which aims to improve supply chain visibility and last mile deliveries for customers. Shopify shares reach 52-week low
