Two giants of the internet have been on a date and decided to produce an offspring. Anyone who’s anyone wanting to appeal to under 25`s (and this 50+ market who should know better) will want to get onto this new super channel. In a nutshell you can feed from Shopify to your BUSINESS TikTok just as you can with Shopify to Facebook / Instagram via an App. If you decide to participate, you will pay for advertising and would be able to track sales with a pixel much like Facebook and Instagram.

The app is highly automated and simple much like TikTok’s current interface, it will walk you through creating attractive video adverts even from your website stills.

It’s coming to Europe this year (hopefully before summer), and is worth including this channel in any Christmas run up plan.
