• Shopify has added support for Avalanche NFTs by introducing Venly’s Shopify NFT minting app.
• Venly allows merchants to mint and list their NFTs through their storefronts without referring to popular marketplaces.
• Shoppers do not need to have an Avalanche wallet to buy NFTs; they can make fiat payments and receive a link to a newly-created Avalanche wallet holding the NFT.
Shopify, the popular e-commerce platform, has announced the addition of Avalanche NFTs to its platform through Venly’s Shopify NFT minting app. The app is available to all merchants and allows them to mint and list their NFTs through their storefronts without referring to popular marketplaces like OpenSea, Rarible, or Magic Eden. This new feature opens up a world of possibilities for Shopify merchants, who can now use NFTs to offer unique experiences to their customers.
The Venly app makes it easy to mint and list NFTs on Avalanche, a layer-1 blockchain platform. Shoppers do not need to have an Avalanche wallet to buy NFTs; they can make fiat payments and receive a link to a newly-created Avalanche wallet holding the NFT. This wallet holds the freshly-minted NFT and shoppers are free to transfer it to another wallet.
Using Venly, sellers on Shopify can not only sell NFTs, but also offer NFT-gated experiences or use NFTs for authentication by tying them to physical products. For example, a store selling art prints can attach an NFT to each print, making it easy to authenticate and prove the provenance of the artwork.
The addition of Avalanche support on Shopify is expected to open up a world of opportunities for merchants who are looking to get into the NFT space. It is now easier than ever for merchants to mint, list and sell their own NFTs, helping them to stand out from the competition. With more and more people entering the NFT market, it is likely that the use cases for NFTs will continue to grow.
