LookLocal.ca Marketplace – No fees until April 1, 2021

Look Local Marketplace was founded to make shopping local easy! Customers can shop their favourite local businesses, all in one place; buying from multiple vendors in one transaction.

Small businesses can sync their online stores with Look Local Marketplace, showcasing their products to a larger audience and giving them far greater reach and marketing power. If a small business doesn’t have an existing e-commerce site, they can easily create a Vendor Profile and upload their products to the marketplace. Vendors also get a profile page, highlighting their business and linking back to their website, social channels. Brought to you by the same team that publishes Look Local Magazine, Look Local Marketplace encourages more people to support local businesses and spend locally.

No fees until April 1, 2021! LookLocal.ca is waiving fees for Oakville businesses until the end of March. For more information, visit LookLocal.ca or email info@looklocal.ca.
