Thanks for the hunt @bentossell! Super excited to be on here. I saw the great community coming up around @csallen 's IndieHackers and wanted to start something similar for ecommerce stores. @benlarcey and co have done a great job showing off store designs with Ecomm.design but I wanted to learn more about the founders and the business decisions that went into starting and growing their store. I've worked with Shopify for years now and it's always been a great community and a great platform for both developers and merchants which is why I think it has grown so much in popularity. Ecommerce is such a broad area that I wanted to focus on Shopify so I could recommend tools and advice that were specific to people on that platform. So late February I started reaching out to stores. We started with some smaller stores but have also interviewed a store doing up to 300/k a month. The most exciting thing has been talking to each of these founders about how they got started. The Reluctant Trading Co and TITAN Survival being two personal favourites. I'm looking forward to bulking up our resources page, focusing our interviews on store revenue much like IndieHackers and using the insights we discover from these stores to build tools for ecommerce stores. If you can help with any of that I'd love to chat :D

I really enjoy reading Indie Hackers. This site looks similar but focused on ecommerce stores built on Shopify!
