Representing independent retail businesses
Neartoo is a collaborative platform born out of a desire to see independent businesses thrive. We aren’t governed by shareholders or corporate giants, but instead by the independent businesses that make Britain great!
We’re proud to represent thousands of businesses across the UK, from single retail outlets and small chains, to large department stores and agricultural dealerships.
Neartoo is backed by The British Independent Retailers Association (BIRA), who have been supporting indies for over 120 years.
Over this time, BIRA has been fighting for a level playing field, drawing on the strength of their membership mass. They influence the media, change Government legislation and provide support on areas of strain for small businesses across the UK.
Neartoo enables our indie members to thrive online and in-store, offering support above and beyond the e-commerce platform. We think they deserve it, and are super grateful to them all!

Backed by BIRA
With the full support of The British Independent Retailers Association, Neartoo empowers local businesses to provide the very best to their customers...
Neartoo is backed by The British Independent Retailers Association and helps connect your business to local consumers, at a fraction of the price. You can even manage inventory from different platforms, all from your Neartoo Dashboard.
We understand that every sale matters. We make sure the funds are paid directly to your merchant account, so we never hold your hard earned cash. Sales via Neartoo will incur a 7% commission charge, as well as the relevant transaction costs (Stripe or PayPal). Please contact Bira for more information on membership fees.
Neartoo is a Marketplace designed to showcase independent businesses across the Country. When you make a purchase on Neartoo, the transaction is between the buyer and seller. However, we are always here to help should you need us.
You most certainly can, and we hope you do! While we try our best to connect you to the most local business or product, we are just happy you are supporting an independent business. All businesses are vetted by The British Independent Retailers Association (BIRA).
At Checkout, you will be shown a variety of options from each of the sellers you are supporting, so just pick the best option for you. You will receive updates via email from each of the relevant sellers as your order progresses.
Your first point of contact should always be the seller you purchased from. You can find their contact details on Neartoo, or use the “Contact Seller” form from their storepage. Our sellers are always keen to help, but if you ever struggle to resolve an issue, just contact us directly.
