Neartoo marketplace launches to support independent British retailers

By Lauren Fruncillo November 24, 2021 - 12:57 pm

The British Independent Retailers Association (Bira) have launched Neartoo, a new marketplace aiming to support the UK’s best independent businesses.

According to Bira, like many marketplaces that have emerged over the past couple of years, the new platform was developed as a response to the pandemic. Neartoo will provide independent retailers with a cost-effective way to sell online to help them expand whilst asking for a lower sales commission than their competitors.

Benefits of selling on Neartoo include:

  • 7% commission and minimal transaction fees
  • Sychronise with Woocomerce and Shopify
  • One-click uploads
  • Click-and-collect and delivered options
  • Platform to boost your social and digital footprint
  • 24/7 local support and online tutorials

If anyone has struggled during the pandemic it has been Brick-And-Mortar stores without an online presence. Marketplaces like Neartoo can help businesses find a new way to get themselves noticed at a larger scale by new customers across the country.

“Above all else Bira wants independent retailers to succeed and that is why we have developed Neartoo. This new online trading platform will allow indie retailers to sell online, arrange click and collect and really engage with local customers – and all at a lower cost than any other similar marketplace by charging only 7% commission. We have made it easy to use and you can even transfer your information from an existing platform like Shopify to our new platform. We honestly believe Neartoo will help retailers to sell more and make more money. All we need now is for you, as members, to sign up and be part of an exciting new venture”
– Andrew Goodacre, CEO, Bira
