We really like online shopping and delivery apps. But too often it comes at a cost to our local businesses and the livelihoods of our friends and neighbours.
So we are building a new digital platform exclusively for local shopping and services…
As a customer Ordaloca brings the high quality of service, experience and convenience you’ve come to expect from major online stores and delivery companies, but using your neighbourhood businesses.
Whether it’s having someone deliver clothes to try on at home or getting a picnic delivered to you and your friends on the beach, you can order via the app knowing you are dealing directly with local businesses who are not being taken advantage of.
Opens in 2 hours
An app designed specifically for supporting local businesses and communities.
Discover local businesses using your location, postcode or by scanning a QR code.
Address delivery, outdoors delivery (using GPS), table service, pickup or shop in-store.
Order together with friends from your own phones. Know how to split the bill at the end!
See where your orders are as local businesses deliver to you themselves.
Save card and delivery details securely and make paying at local businesses simple.
Get rewarded for returning reusable items and improve your local environment too.
Use virtual cards and get rewarded for your loyalty with each local business.
E-commerce is great for buying commodity items. It makes sense and can be good for the environment too by centralising logisitics.
However there’s a problem when used at the local level. It misses the unique factors that make flourishing local companies so special, ignores customer experience and isn’t designed for the different set of problems and advantages selling locally brings.
It also pushes everything into the hands of a few major players (you know who we are talking about).
But we think with the right tools, local businesses can use their distinct advantages to thrive alongside e-commerce. And by doing so build better communities and help the environment too…
We give you more ways to wow your customers, simplify the way you run your business and ultimately make more money.
We are a small independent business ourselves. We are on your side and are building this for you. As a business owner or entrepreneur being “nearby” opens a whole host of exciting possibilities not possible with regular e-commerce. We are making it easy for you to take advantage of them just using the Ordaloca app and website.
We care about communities and culture. We care about customer experience. We care about hard working, independent businesses that believe in quality, creativity, brand, personality, sustainability, ethics, people and the future.
Ultimately we care about where we live.
For our localities to be vibrant, exciting and prosperous "Revitalising the High Street" is likely not the answer. We need more than that. Something that aligns to the way that people want to live. Blending the best parts of the physical and digital world. And removing the bad parts.
