Easy to join and set-up is quick. Each transaction starts on the app, and ends in the shop. Plus, our business model puts neighborhood shops first.


Connect your POS system.

In as little as 3 minutes we’ll have your inventory on the app. We’ll make your page and walk you through test orders.


Order placed!

Shoppers search for products by proximity or shop and place orders through the app.

People want to shop with you.

But often, it’s difficult for them to search your inventory. We unite neighborhood shops on a single platform, so you gain visibility and grow your customer base. Consumers get to buy on the app and pick up in-store, a format that continues to grow in popularity.
