NearSt is great at helping you find and buy products from your local shops. But what is shopping, if we can't be inspired by things we've never heard of before?
Discovery on NearSt allows you to do just that.
What is Discovery?
Discovery is all about being inspired and inspiring others with products you might not have heard of. Think of it like browsing the shelves of a shop with a knowledgable friend, but through your phone.
Exploring with Discovery
The first screen you see when arriving on NearSt is where your Discovery journey begins. The first thing you'll see is a curated list of the most interesting products near you right now. We try to show you as many that are within walking distance as possible.
Along the top of the page, you'll see several different lists we curate to inspire you. These cover everything from simple product categories, to staff picks, to lists created by other NearSt users as well as our shops. We're always updating these, so dive in and have a look around to see what's interesting near you!
Creating your own lists
Lists are a brilliant way to inspire both yourself and other shoppers. Anyone can save products to their favourites from the product information page, by tapping
If you want to create a themed list, you'll need to download our iOS App from the App Store. Then all you to do is:
- When looking at a product, tap the + icon in the top right
- Choose the list you want to add it to, or create a new one
- Done! You can view all of your lists in the app by tapping on the heart icon at the bottom of the screen
You can create as many lists as you want, about anything you want. All lists can be made public or private
Sharing with friends
As well as sharing individual products, you can also share both products and lists with friends. Just tap the sharing icons at the top of the list, or if you're using the iOS App, the
icon in the top right.
Discovery helps inspire you with brilliant products you might not have otherwise found, and lets you share your knowledge and ideas with other shoppers to be inspired by.
