Ontario has chosen Shopify Inc.’s e-commerce platform for in-store and online cannabis sales. The Ontario Cannabis Retail Corporation (OCRC), a subsidiary of the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO), announced this morning that the Ottawa-based company’s online and mobile sales portals will be used to develop a framework for selling recreational cannabis. The decision was made in late 2017, but was only made public today, according to the LCBO. “Our top priority is fulfilling the Province’s framework for the safe and sensible retailing of recreational cannabis for when it is legalized by the federal government,” said George Soleas, president and CEO of the LCBO. Shopify will provide a cloud-based retail solution for both on and offline sales, an LCBO spokesperson told ITWC. It will connect to OCRC’s head office systems and allow for shopping across desktop, mobile and in-store sales. Ontario chooses Shopify to run online cannabis sales
