The Ultimate List of Black-Owned Shopify Stores


Here at ShopPad, we aim to help every entrepreneur succeed. We’ve worked with tens of thousands of businesses over the years and pride ourselves on giving the same excellent service to all of our merchants.

Recently, we turned our attention to listening and learning about the added difficulties that Black entrepreneurs face in this world.

For instance, the average annual revenue of businesses owned by Black women was $27.8K in 2012 (the most recent year numbers are available), which is 614% less than white women made on average that same year. Black-owned businesses collectively saw a total annual revenue of $187.6B compared to the $12.9T white-owned companies made.

Statistics show white people have access to more financial and educational resources. Given those facts, we realized that one resource we could offer to Black Shopify entrepreneurs as a company is a visibility.

We began putting together a list of Black-owned Shopify stores to serve as a guide to finding your new favorite brand. Our mission was to catalog as many as possible, and we soon realized that our list was growing far beyond the limits of a blog post. We've split it up. You can find our directory of Black-owned Shopify stores here. As a part of our commitment to amplifying the voices of our Black merchants, we will continue to update and add to this list. (Send us a store to add at In this blog post, we've highlighted some of our favorite brands in each category.
