SokoLocal doesn't take payments

We don't broker transactions or take a cut of sales. When you use SokoLocal and find a product you like, you purchase it directly from the business selling it using their website.

What is SokoLocal?

Read the story of our beginning

It's a search engine for
local products

Sometimes finding what you need from local sellers can feel like a real struggle—all that Googling, calling, waiting on hold only to find they don't carry what you're looking for. It's no wonder Amazon is the world’s largest online retailer, its tools are direct and finding products is simple! Now SokoLocal offers that same convenience of searching and shopping online, but you'll find locally-sold products instead.

A new way to find
local stores

Sure, you want to support local, but finding new businesses that carry exactly what you're looking for, sometimes isn't that simple. With SokoLocal you can find great businesses via the products they sell, and then you have the opportunity to support that business, fall in love with their values and service, and make them one of your favourite places to shop.

An easier way to support your community & economy

#shopLocal isn't a fad or trend, it's vital for your community. For every $100 spent at a locally-owned business, approximately. $66 is reinvested into your local economy; for every $100 spent at a large chain, only $43 remains local. SokoLocal helps you support your community and economy by making it easier to find businesses that need your support.

What does it cost?

Like Google, SokoLocal offers a lot for free. Listing your business and products doesn't cost you a dime. We do offer advertising and promotional options that can get you additional visibility, but all of the businesses you currently see listed on SokoLocal… didn't pay to get listed and neither will you.
