How it works ?

Nearby Shops is a distributed ecosystem of local markets. Anyone can self-host their Local Market Instance and create their local market on Nearby Shops.

The technology is fully open-source and funded by Donations.

Although the platform and technology itself is Nonprofit but Service Providers (Market Creators) are allowed to charge for their services in order to recover their expenses and cost of human efforts and Man-Hours.

Local Market's are generally self-hosted by independent Volunteers, Service Providers and local vendor cooperatives who seek the welfare of their local vendors.

The end-users can access local markets available in their area through single mobile app and login account. Which means that there is only one single mobile app they need to download and install.

This helps in saving the marketing costs and efforts for these local markets. Marketing costs can be huge these days therefore this is something that is going to provide substantial cost savings.
