A #ShopLocal alternative to Amazon & Etsy

Imagine searching for products made or sold in Derry on a single website and then paying to have them delivered – just like we’d do on Amazon or Etsy?  Now imagine all that money staying in the local economy instead of leaving the city!

This is the goal of the Pure Derry Market ✊

*Not cos we hate Amazon or Etsy, but cos we LOVE Derry. ❤️ We want to give independent businesses an alternative platform that supports the local economy, creates new jobs and showcases us to the world.

How It Works

The Pure Derry Market will allow brands and businesses across the city & region to signup to a single eCommerce platform, that anyone can use to shop local – no matter where they are. Sellers manage their own products, set their own delivery costs and decide how they deliver their service.  Payments will be taken centrally and redistributed to our vendors minus a small sales commission.

Sellers manage their own inventory

Vendors will be able to manage their own products, prices and stock levels on their admin dashboard.

Customers can search, browse & buy

Customers search across all products on the Pure Derry Market at once to find something suitable.

Sellers fulfil their own orders

Vendors will dispatch their own orders. Email notifications, shipping manifests are all included.

Payments are taken centrally & distributed

We process all payments centrally and pay our vendors every 14 days - minus sales commission.

Who Can Join?

In principle any business thats makes or sells products in the Derry area may be eligible to join, but we do have a few ground rules:

Already trading and making sales to customers

A social media presence for the business we can jook at.

Good quality product images (Really important!)

Based in, near or from the Derry area

Happy to pay a 10% sales commission.

Know who Liam Coyle is.

Given the nature of the ‘Pure Derry’ market we are especially keen to list products MADE in the city/region. However there’s also huge scope for local businesses and brands who selling any products or services that local customers will value and need. We want to maintain a high level of quality on the marketplace though, and so reserve the right to work with vendors at our own discretion.

The Wee Print

Early Doors vendors will remain on the 10% commission rate until 1st May 2022 (paying no monthly subscription costs).  After this date they’ll switch to the most appropriate monthly tariff according to their inventory size. Whilst our sales fees include all the transaction charges (cos we’re pure sound) – be advised that in the event a customer requests a refund, those fees (approx 2.5%) cannot not be reimbursed to you, or indeed, us!  That’s just how the cookie crumbles in e-commerce land.


If you want to list more than 250 products, please contact and we’ll be happy to arrange a custom package to suit your needs.
