ShopNow is an online storefront to help small businesses sell products and services on any website, including platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Google Shopping and goldenpages.ie.

GoldenPages.ie has launched ShopNow, an e-commerce solution for small to medium businesses. ShopNow was fast-tracked as part of the goldenpages.ie COVID-19 support package to help businesses sell online. It is available free until July 31.

“There are 248,344 SMEs active in Ireland and only 32% can take an online sale*,” says Jade O’Connor, VP of Product & Marketing of FCR Media Ireland, the firm behind goldenpages.ie. “The ability to trade online is becoming increasingly important with the impact of COVID-19 as customers change how they interact with businesses.”

After July 31, businesses will have a choice to close the online store or continue with a monthly plan. Plans range from €18 to €36 per month (+ 23% VAT).

Show Now is “quick to set up and customise”, says O’Connor. You can check out examples of businesses using ShopNow here.
