A local e-commerce collective is defined by proximity. It enables shops, businesses & services providers to sell directly to their local community, neighbours and visitors. In addition, based on product suitability vendors can also choose to sell their products to a wider market on the Internet.
Inspired by the Transition Movement https://transitionnetwork.org & developed by TheGreenDirectory.net, local e-commerce collectives are designed for use in towns, villages and communities with their own identities.
Small businesses, entrepreneurs & artisans are empowered to sell online with a free online listing, catalogue and shopping cart as part of their own community collective. Not only are physical products supported, so are digital products (file downloads), accommodation, bookings, events & services.
