Sell more on Support My Local

We help small businesses sell more online. We will sometimes work on commission-only basis but where we do charge for development work it is much less than you would pay from a large IT vendor.

Support My Local can turbocharge your sales using advanced e-commerce technology to smooth out your sales and after-sales processes.

Our state-of-the-art shops and mailing list integrations will help you reach the right customers and sell complex products.

Features include,

  • Use as your only shop or as an additional sales channel
  • Beautiful shops
  • Support for events (e.g. Brockley Max)
  • Support for groups of artists or vendors (eg Quaggy Printmakers)
  • Application forms
  • After-sale forms (including file uploads)
  • Delivery rules for physical products (including delivery by vendor)
  • Systems integrations
  • Mailing List management (use in addition or instead of Mailchimp)

If you don’t see what you want here we can probably do it. Just give us a call to discuss your requirements.

Key facts about selling on Support My Local

We are a booking and payment platform – we do not make deliveries. Some of our vendors make free local deliveries around their shop or home and some offer delivery by post for customers who live further away. Support My Local is the only ecommerce system that supports all these possibilities.

You receive payment by Stripe (a credit card processor like PayPal) before you deliver the goods. Unlike other e-commerce platforms we never touch your money.

We charge you 8% +50p for each sale and this is deducted automatically when the customer pays you.

Special Support for Artists Clubs and Maker’s Societies

Have you ever wondered why all the furnitures shops are next to each other? Well, it is great to have your own shop but usually you will sell more if you customers can find you next to similar vendors. With Support My Local you can have your own shop AND have your products appear in a gallery with other vendors. Check out the Quaggy Printmakers and their art sale.

Real support for real people like you

You wouldn’t do your own accounts; you find an accountant who cares about your business. Selling online is the same – the best approach is to find a partner who really cares about the success of your business.
