Calling all Local Businesses

Somerset West and Taunton Council is offering the e-commerce platform ShopAppy to local businesses free for 12 months, providing another way to boost trade. The scheme will give people who usually shop online a chance to support the local business community and buy local this festive season. The Council is the first in Somerset to provide the platform which allows local businesses to sell and showcase their goods and services online. SWT is offering this service free of charge for the first 12 months, making it easier for local people to browse, book and buy local all in one place. Orders on can be home delivered, picked up from the shop itself, or from a collection point such as visitor centres, local pubs or cafes which allow customers to get their items outside normal business hours. The hospitality and events sector as well as community organisations can also use the platform to take bookings or stage online activities, sales or virtual events. Businesses registered will be allocated a community officer to assist and support with loading products and promotion.
