OTTAWA—Shopify Inc. says it has acquired Swedish e-commerce company Tictail.

Terms of the deal were not immediately available.

Like Shopify, Tictail aims to bring trendy products to the marketplace by helping businesses create an online presence.

Tictail was founded in 2012 by four friends, including one who wanted to create the company after he watched his mother struggle to build an online shop for her ceramics.
