ShopCloseBuy.ca is a shared, Community Ecommerce and Marketing Platform developed to support the economic health and interdependence of community businesses. We believe that strengthening the business community as a whole, benefits everyone and results in enhanced community economic development.
ShopCloseBuy.ca has been designed to highlight the goods and services of individual vendors or to view the offerings of All Vendors through the vendor drop down list. Integrated social media sharing drives traffic back to individual vendor offerings while at the same time cross-promoting other vendors on the platform. As a shared Community Ecommerce platform, ShopCloseBuy.ca promotes all that is available in a given community. It can be a "Shop Local" alternative to other Ecommerce platforms that siphon local resources out of the community and/or it can be used to attract tourists to the area and entice non-residents to become customers.
There are three listing types available on ShopCloseBuy.ca that support the inclusion of a wide range of vendors:
- Ecommerce Listings ("Buy")
- Preorder Listings
- Promo Listings ("Learn More")
ShopCloseBuy.ca is software developed by TechnicalitiesPlus Inc., a web design and application development company based in rural Haliburton County, Ontario. Our mission is to create innovative web applications that alleviate social problems and help to create healthier and more sustainable communities.
