Bringing Local Produce And Goods Straight To Your Customers Door
We are passionate about supporting local. We understand that online shops are sometimes expensive so we have created Keep it Local Marketplace. A dedicated online shop for you to sell your products on.
Why have we built this site?
As the country hit lockdown on the 23rd March 2020 because of the Coronavirus it became very apparent very quickly that supermarkets struggled to fulfil demand. People turned to local sources more and more but despite best efforts, it wasn’t always easy for producers and shops to be able to deal with this demand using social media and the telephone to take orders. Working with North Devon Now and BoomBoom Media we built Keep it Local Marketplace.
What does Keep it Local Marketplace do?
Keep it Local Marketplace is an online store that allows producers and shops the ability to have your own hyper shop built into the website. Fully controlled by you the Shop Manager.
The Shop Manager has complete control over the stock uploaded, the inventory, pricing, shipping and more.
How much does it cost?
We would love to be in a position to offer this service for free but unfortunately, due to costs to keep the site running and admin, we do need to charge a small commission. Initially, your first month will be offered free as we appreciate that we are all in difficult times. After this period there is a small commission charge of 5% on sales.
What do we get?
You will have full control over your very own online shop but you will be a part of a much bigger group of local producers and shops on a North Devon Marketplace.
Is it difficult to set up?
The site uses Woo Commerce a hugely popular eCommerce plugin. We do appreciate that it may not be simple for everyone so we do offer assistance in setting your shop up. There is a step by step guide to get your shop off of the ground and a structured setup for how to add products. In your initial set up we will help with this process should you need us. There is no cost for this.
What happens if I don’t wish to carry on with my shop?
Should you decide that Keep it Local Marketplace isn’t for you then quite simply we just close down your shop.
It is this easy to set up your shop!?
