A free to join, low commission online marketplace on a mission to save the UKs high streets. DownYourHighStreet.com will host millions of products that were previously unavailable online, with seamless managed services for high street shops, saving retailers time & money on their e-commerce strategy.

  • Government partner for GB High Street Awards
  • 310 shops have signed up since December 2017 launch
  • Allowing retailers to compete with large chains & online-only sellers
  • Product inventory increased to 50k following launch in Dec 2017

Idea

As high street footfall declines, omni-channel retail is the key to survival in the digital age. Yet, too many UK high street retailers still do not have an online presence. We believe that time, costs and know-how are the three main barriers to e-commerce for independent retailers.

DYHS is a single specialised marketplace that allows these retailers to compete with large chain and online-only sellers. High street shops can list their goods for a large global customer base, establish their online shop profile/connect existing websites and EPOS systems, and access discounted fully managed extra traffic activities such as Google Ads.

Customers can search, compare, order and locate a range of products that are not available on large marketplaces or online-only retailers.

Since 2015 DYHS have worked with 200+ retailers to build our beta platform. Since launching the bespoke site at Christmas 2017, our product inventory has increased to 50k, and we have had 310 shops sign up with us since then.

DYHS aims to be at the centre of the combined £86 billion growth of brick-and-mortar and e-commerce sectors over the next four years. We will use funds raised to grow our team to be more data focused, and recruit student ambassadors to help sign up even more local retailers, rapidly scaling up our coverage to hit our 3000 retailer target over the next 12 months.

DownYourHighStreet has been given advance assurance by HMRC that the proposed share issue is likely to qualify for Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) tax relief.

Tax relief is available to individuals only, with income tax relief currently set at 30 per cent of the cost of the shares for the tax year in which the investment was made. The tax reliefs can also reduce your Capital Gains Tax bill. Read More.
