Launch Your Own Local Online Marketplace!

Create a powerful economic engine for your community.

What is a Spots Initiative?

Online shopping is an essential part of everyday living, and small local businesses can benefit from a more robust virtual presence. What would your community look like with a dedicated online platform that helps support your local entrepreneurs?

Spots Initiatives streamlines the creation of local online marketplaces. Each initiative in our network is run by a Spots Expansion Partner. These partners promote and grow their own “shop local” initiative with vendors from their community to help shoppers discover and support small businesses in their area.

We invite you to launch your own Spots Initiative in your local community today!

Spots On The FOX is the EASIEST way to Shop Local in the Fox Valley area and is the flagship local Spots Initiative.

You Add Vendors, We Do the Rest.

We’ve done the hard work, so you don’t have to.

Promote. Add Vendors. Get Paid.

As a Spots Expansion Partner, you earn a 40% recurring monthly commission for every active vendor you get to sign up! The more vendors you add, the more you grow, and the more income potential you have. Click here to view commissionable vendor plans.

New Features & Upgrades

Our team consistently strives to improve our virtual marketplaces on an ongoing basis. As we add new and powerful features, we offer support to your vendors as well as the people that shop their products.

Beautifully Designed & Optimized

Stand out in your community with this high-end, polished platform. Your virtual marketplace will be beautifully designed and optimized to be on-brand with all other Spots Initiatives.

Mobile-Friendly Experience

Vendors and shoppers alike will enjoy a fully responsive and streamlined experience. Each vendor has their own easy-to-navigate Vendor Dashboard for managing their growing business. Shoppers can buy from multiple storefronts in one easy transaction.

24/7 Maintenance & Security

Your vendors didn’t get into business to worry about website maintenance and security. Our team provides a safe and secure platform and 24/7 monitoring of our network of virtual marketplaces.

We Support You & Your Vendors

As an Expansion Partner, you will enjoy access to a private Facebook Group that supports your initiative and lets you network with other Expansion Partners. Your vendors also become part of the Spots Vendor Community, a private Facebook group that supports their business.

Everything You Need

We give you the tools that lead to success.

Starting your own Spots Initiative means more money staying in, and building up, your community. Vendors keep 100% of their sales, paid instantly via Stripe, and shoppers get the gift of supporting local, even online.

Note: Stripe charges an industry-standard fee of 2.9% + 30¢ to process sales transactions. We do NOT pad this processing fee.
