Testimonials

How our Marketplace helps High Street Retailers

GIDDY GOAT TOYS, a Traditional Children’s Toy Shop in Manchester, UK

  • Integrated Giddy Goat Toys website to DYHS in August 2019
  • £2,400 of sales in the first month (24x online sales increase, 50 new customers)
  • In 2020, £89,000 of sales on DYHS to 2,541 customers
  • Young parents prefer to spread their purchase over 6 weeks with our Clearpay payment method, increasing their average order

It’s great to have another sales channel where I am not having to do the SEO work, marketing and taking the risk with fraudulent orders.

AZZEDIARI BOUTIQUE, a Shop in Christchurch, UK

  • Down Your High Street have been absolutely incredible. The whole team are so helpful and friendly.
  • The whole ethos of DYHS is supporting independent businesses and they excel in this area.
  • With their help and support, they have managed to help drive my business to become more recognised and well known.
  • I have also had the added bonus of appearing on ITV's Lorraine programme as part of Mark Heyes's Top 10 Independent Retailers thanks to Down Your High Street.

I would recommend every independent retailer to work with Down Your High Street as they make the process of getting your business online easily and they are 100% supportive of local independent businesses.

Frequently Asked By Retailers

Why is this only for independent retailers?
We believe that independent UK High Street retailers are the lifeblood of the UK economy, and offer such a unique shopping experience that by bringing them together we can supply a shopping experience like no other for the customer while providing worthwhile revenue streams to help retailers thrive.
How do we define what an independent retailer is?
An independent retailer is a physical shop that is independently owned. Most commonly these will be boutiques and other independent shops on the high st, however, this also counts for shops that are off the beaten track. We may request photographic proof of a customer-facing physical business during a seller's application to sell on the platform.
Can I use my own delivery methods?
Yes, you can offer any delivery method you choose, and set the price to the customer. You can also use our integrated delivery service with Parcel2go. See more here. https://downyourhighstreetsupport.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360008832958-DYHS-Quick-Ship-Integrated-Delivery-
Can I offer click & collect?
Yes, the customer pays online and you can notify them when it's ready to be collected. We strongly encourage using this feature to encourage customers to visit the store in person.
How do I get paid?
Directly into your bank account roughly 18 days after the sale, minus the commission on the sale. This way you can request your invoices on a monthly or quarterly bases and have no need to transfer any additional funds to us.
How long do website integrations take?
In most cases, literally a few minutes. The first step is to sign-up and then inform the DYHS team that you want to integrate. If we don't have a pre-built connection to your website type we can often find a way to get you connected. Pre-built integrations include Shopify, Wordpress, Magento V2, EKM, and Wix. You can also populate your products using a product feed such as a Google feed, or a spreadsheet.
Can I cancel my profile?
Yes. Although even just having your business listed with us can increase your visibility online so before you cancel please inform us of why and maybe we can help. If you still would like to leave, your account will stay active for 4 weeks to allow for any customer communication or orders to be closed.
What happens with returns?
Customers can return their order with no reason needed within 14 days of the day it was received. Returns are sent back to the retailer's registered shop address.
How do discounts work on the site?
If Downyourhighstreet.com offers a promotion or discount to a customer without pre-arrangements with the retailer, then DYHS pays for the discount. This typically happens with the 10% off first order promotion we offer.
How does the commission work?
Commission is charged on the product value only, not the shipping value.
How do transactions work?
Transactions are made on the Downyourhighstreet.com platform, and orders are fulfilled by the retailer. Retailers can view their orders in their account dashboard.
How do I deal with queries about shipping?
Retailers can use their own shipping or the DYHS integrated shipping. If a retailer's own shipping is used then the retailer is liable for losses and will have to communicate with the customer to resolve the issue. Failure to do this will lead to the retailer's account being closed or the order being refunded at the cost to the retailer. If DYHS shipping is used then we handle the claim with our courier partner and communicate with the customer.
How can I get help with customers/orders?
Downyourhighstreet.com support can be contacted on info@downyourhighstreet.com during the standard working hours of Monday – Friday, 9am - 5pm.
