shopAppy is an app and website which encourages people to shop local, and provides a way for businesses to showcase and sell products online, without having to have their own eCommerce platform. It handles payments for you. People can “click and collect”, and have it delivered or pick up in store.

As well as allowing shops that do not have an eCommerce website to quickly get one up and running, it will help those pubs/restaurants that are trying to diversify into takeaway/delivery services. Even businesses like hotels and attractions can benefit, by selling vouchers to be cashed in at a later date.

No commission on sales is deducted, payment is taken through the shopAppy site and only the standard card fee will be deducted. Customers can also buy vouchers for future use at your business.
