“Imagine if everything you purchased was an investment. Imagine if you knew everything you owned and avoided making repetitive impulse purchases. Imagine reselling your goods with the click of a button at the optimal price.All of this is possible with Shop+, an extension of Shopify’s Shop App. Shop+ gives the consumer agency to buy products that align with their emotional wealth, manage their personal inventory of things, and sell whenever they want.You’re pretty special, and so are your things. So let’s start taking care of them and start buying beyond the checkout.”
As a designer, Dayna is inquisitive, innovative, and business-minded. Dayna sees the possibility for design thinking to create business ideas and opportunities.
