Shopiago ecommerce software for charities
Shopiago is a relatively new provider of e-commerce software for charity and second-hand retailers in the UK. The product enables charities to sell donated items and new items online faster and more easily and to make more sales at a higher selling price and at lower cost. Shopiago’s “corporate” principles are to help charitable causes and save the planet by encouraging recycling. For this reason, their slogan is “Shopiago – ecommerce for good”.
Shopiago connects to any combination of eBay, Amazon, Etsy, and online stores and allows charities to sell online anywhere and anywhere using a only set of tools. It helps them find, identify, evaluate and list donated goods to any sales destination using keyword, barcode and image recognition search in minutes, then manages the all of their stock, orders and messages from each destination, all in one. place.
Shopiago was designed for users who are not tech-savvy and the setup only takes five minutes and is quick and easy to use. It includes built-in messaging tools ensuring that users have access to expert help whenever they need it.
To simplify costs for charities, there are no monthly fees – just a 5% commission on sales so charities know exactly how much to budget and will only pay for successful sales.
The solution is perfectly suited to the busy environment of a charity store. Time is a precious commodity, so saving time and efficiency are essential. And with a diverse, largely volunteer workforce, any software designed to help a charity store get online has to be even easier to use than eBay itself. With Shopiago, anyone can search, rate, and list donated items within minutes.
The software was not released until the last quarter of 2018, but has been in beta testing for some time. So far the two biggest charity retailers – British Heart Foundation and Barnardo’s use the software to list thousands of items per week and they are due to start trials with a number of other charities including Sue Ryder and Oxfam This year.
