Initially, a limited number of spots will be available and we'll be offering them on a first come first served basis.

Whether you sell homeware, clothing, produce or tech, you may be one of many high street retailers facing little to no business during the ongoing pandemic. We've started Despatch Bay Local Connect to help you open up your doors to selling online with your very own ecommerce store – you bring the products, we'll bring the know-how.

So What's Included?

To get you up and running, Despatch Bay Local Connect includes these features as standard…

Your Own Store and Domain

Pick from 1 of 3 brilliant website templates, which we will customise with your brand. All our sites are mobile friendly, and easy to use. Plus you'll get your own .co.uk domain, if you don't already have one.

Free Product Listing Creation

Really let your products shine, with beautiful product photography and enticing product descriptions for your items. We'll start you off with your first 10, but you can add as many as you like when you're ready.

Discounted Parcel Services

Not only will you have access to our great range of parcel services, but you will also receive special rates so you can find your feet. You also get access to our other industry-leading features and customer service.

What if I Already Have a Website?

We wouldn't be surprised if you already have a website these days, and it's not a problem if you don't. The store we build for you can either run alongside your existing website, or it can even replace it if you like – it's totally up to you.

How Will My Orders Get to My Customers?

With Despatch Bay, we have the vans and the capability to deliver your orders to your customers the next day all over the UK and other destinations around the world.

Why Are You Doing This Now?

As a local business ourselves, it pains us to see other businesses in our area – and around the country – have to close down indefinitely. We want to do our bit to be able to help those in need get back up on their feet, and maintain their livelihoods.

To be as flexible as possible, we have several options available for you to choose from.

Option 1

£1 per order
No Setup Fee
Min. £150 a month

Option 2

£100 per month
£500 One-off Setup Fee

Option 3

All options are for a minimum of 6 months.

Bespoke Ecommerce Website Creation from £3000
