The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is asking Shopify to provide them with information about their merchants for the past 6 years.

Unsurprisingly, Shopify CEO Tobias Lutke thinks this is a “lowekey overreach” and promised to fight the request.

So what’s the report for?

The CRA says it will be using the information to identify non-compliant taxpayers and to verify if they have truthfully reported their income and satisfied their filing obligations.

The agency will need a court authorization for this though, and both parties are going to seek a hearing on the subject matter in 2024.

Will TikTok Shop Be Successful in the US?

Love it or hate it, TikTok is undoubtedly one of the most successful social media apps today. But will it be a big e-commerce platform as well?

This question may be answered soon as the ByteDance-owned app might be officially launching its online retail store as early as next month. The shop is expected to feature TikTok’s own product line from Chinese manufacturers.

The company’s move is far from unique since in-app shopping has long been a thing in other social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook. However, it can potentially become big in the US, considering there are already 150 million Americans using the app. TikTok also has a track record of making products go viral to the point of being sold out.

Amazon and other online marketplaces can still rest easy though. Based on reports, TikTok Shop hasn’t been able to gain that much traction in Western markets unlike in Asia.
