ShopAppy: Kirkcaldy

Kirkcaldy was the first area in Scotland to adopt the award winning place based platform ShopAppy, enabling Kirkcaldy businesses to trade online within a matter of hours and within a collective market place.

Showcasing businesses across sectors in an online platform dedicated to one place, ShopAppy Kirkcaldy means that customers can shop 24 hours a day across the businesses and pay in one transaction. The platform streamlines the sales and payment process for businesses that already have existing e-commerce or social media channels by linking with online shopping facilities on their own websites and social media.

ShopAppy Kirkcaldy is being delivered by Love oor Lang Toun, a community group formed as a Community Interest Company (see Action section), supported by Fife Council and Greener Kirkcaldy to provide a free online route to market for businesses. During the COVID-19 lockdown, this enabled businesses to stay open online even though their doors were closed.
