Shopify’s business model is processing transactions. 60% of the company’s revenue was from payment processing fees in the first quarter, compared to 40% in the first quarter of 2015, when the company went public. Shopify’s primary revenue growth driver has been transactional revenue, rather than revenue it collects from hosting stores - 38% growth in subscription solutions revenue vs 54% in merchant solutions revenue.
