Shopify has reaped the rewards of the recent growth in e-commerce and TikTok will be a welcome addition to it’s huge portfolio of partners. With 41% of TikTok users being aged between 16 and 24 according to Oberlo, this could be a great opportunity for businesses to reach out to a young customer target group and drive sales.

Businesses need only connect to a TikTok for business account where they can then turn existing product imagery into videos and create shoppable ads.
