We do this by offering shops 1-Hour Delivery and instant Click & Collect, using the systems you already have in-store. On Near.st or the NearSt app nearby shoppers can now buy from your shop faster and easier with you than ordering the same thing online.
NearSt is now opening up to the following new categories in London:
"NearSt is allowing stores to innovate on a more fundamental level: convenience."
"I doubt you could make it easier. I'm really impressed by these guys. I wish setting up my website was that easy."Andy
"NearSt really paid attention to what bookshops need and they're very open and responsive to comments and suggestions, which means that our, already good, experience is constantly improving."Tara

A few questions other shops have asked us, about how it all works.
Sounds awesome! But how much does it cost? Being part of our shop community is free - there are no joining or monthly membership fees. We only charge a simple admin fee on any extra sales generated through our site.
Am I tied into a contract? Nope! We're a small business too, and understand you need the flexibility to join and leave when you want.
I have a REALLY old inventory system, can I still join? Absolutely. The magic of our NearLive platform means any business can get up and running in just a few minutes. Whether you have the latest fancy ePOS system, or an old beige PC whirring away in the corner running Windows 98.
Do I need to spend lots of time each week updating my inventory? Definitely not! NearSt has been built to take just 5 minutes of your time each week to keep updated. This is thanks to our clever NearLive platform.
I don't have a smartphone - can I still use NearSt? Absolutely positively! You can manage orders from any web browser, whether that's on your desktop computer, tablet, or mobile phone. You can accept customer orders from any of these too, as well as a range of other options built to fit in with the way you already work.
We started NearSt with one simple mission - to get people back into their local shops.
To date we've walked and biked 250 miles to 100s of shops across London, who've helped us build NearSt to where it is today. And we're not stopping with just bookshops, or London. We're getting any type of shop anywhere onto NearSt.
Want us to stop by your shop? Just drop us a note on email@example.com and we'll come say hi!
Welcome! NearSt Lite is the place where we’re testing new categories before they are ready to launch on NearSt.
Items with a “Lite” icon are likely in nearby shops, but we can’t guarantee it.
Unlike other products, you can’t pay for Lite products on NearSt.
