MuseumShops is an exciting new online marketplace for the heritage sector. Its objective is simple – to boost retail sales and customer awareness by providing an online high street for museums, galleries, libraries and historic attractions.
Establishing an online shop can be expensive and time-consuming. MuseumShops makes the process easy, inexpensive and risk free by providing an online platform without upfront or ongoing fees. We simply charge a 12% commission so that our partners only pay when they sell. And for organisations with an existing online shop, MuseumShops offers the chance to open a second outlet in a cultural shopping centre to complement and expand your existing presence on the web.
All partners have a unique customisable homepage as a shopfront on the MuseumShops website. Site visitors can browse by organisation or by product, thereby drawing in customers who may never have visited and inspiring them to visit in future.
At MuseumShops our partners manage and fully control their individual accounts, setting the prices and postage rates which suit them best. Our easy to use back office system powered by WooCommerce makes it quick and easy to upload products, with monthly sales report and stock management tools built in to help you manage your shop. Friends groups and loyal customers can be rewarded with seller unique discount codes amongst other promotional opportunities and campaigns provided by MuseumShops itself.
