List your business for free until April 30!
I am Marie S. Messina CEO of Z Handy Gift LLC incorporated in Atlanta (GA).
We create physical and virtual products to ease individuals and corporate daily lives.
"ShopYourMembers" is one of our virtual products - an application designed by Z Handy Gift "Business Services".
COVID-19 has destroyed entire sectors of the economy and these uncertain times aren't going anywhere soon.
So before shopping with the big guys, support your community by purchasing from small businesses.
Small business owners members of our Facebook group "Small Businesses Concept Store" are people we want to support in this project.
Our concept is designed to connect both small business Vendors and small business Shoppers.
All types of small businesses are welcome !
We tested our new concept and what we found is pretty promising! Compared to posts on group pages, the Community Store improves business exposure up to 47%. How? By easing the transactions and enhancing the business presentation.
- Access to visit and buy products and services in the community Store is free for all members.
When do we have SHOPPERS FEES?
When a member subscribe to the "ShopYourMembers Club membership" he then becomes a "paying members".
Paying-members receive special offers from the Community Store Vendors with special promotion codes.
This is a way for individuals to do good business while donating so we can improve and expand the Community Store.
When do we have VENDORS FEES?
Listing a business or a business space is not free. There is a choice between several options with a one-time payment.
Subscription plans with periodic payments will be available in the near future.
Being a member of our Facebook group or affiliate groups is a prerequisite to take full advantage of the project. Moreover everybody can be a "Shopper".
But some people want more!
That's why we have the Shop Your Member "Club Membership card" option. Members subscribing to that option become PAYING-MEMBERS "SHOPPERS"
Here is the difference between a "NON-PAYING" member Shopper and a "PAYING" member Shopper:
You will pay no fees.You will be able to consult information about promotions on the group page.
You will pay the membership subscription fees.You will be able to consult information about promotions on the group page.You will be entitled to receive - by email - priority announcements of promotions and potentially codes with higher promotional rates.
For example Booth P2F1- 0001
P = PRODUCTS
2 = area 2 = RETAIL - beauty and skin care products
F1 = Floor 1
0001 = booth number 0001
For example Booth S1F1- 0026
S = SERVICES
1 = area 1 = all types of services
F1 = Floor 1
0026 = booth number 0026
For now we have opened 4 areas in the community Store for the PRODUCTS
area 1 = RETAIL - all types of products
area 2 = RETAIL - beauty and skin care products
area 3 = WHOLESALE - all types of products
area 4 = WHOLESALE - beauty and skin care products
1 unique area in the community Store for SERVICES
area 1 = all types of services
We will adapt this organization to the number and types of small businesses that integrate the platform. The objective being to always have an optimized navigation without changing booth references all the time.
Your business badge is your business id in the Community Store
- You receive a "business badge" mentioning your booth reference after we collect your business information.
- We assign a booth reference to your business when we publish it in the Community Store.
- Your business badge is activated in the Community Store when the payment is completed then people can get to your website, Facebook boutique or YouTube channel.
- During promotion periods - if there is a free trial - it begins when your business badge is published and activated in the Community Store.
How to send your business information?
There are 3 main ways to communicate with us and send your business information:
1 - Use the "Contact Us" option on this site
2 - Comment a "LISTING POST" located on the Facebook group page.
3 - Use a dedicated form on the main website Z Handy Gift
After your business badge is activated in the community Store
- Then you can start sending your marketing and advertising posts to be published on the group page.
Time is money for you and the shoppers!
You want your business to be found quickly in the Store ?
That's why we require ALL POSTS on the group page to have a headline MENTIONING:
At your request we can send you the direct link to your booth floor in the Community Store. So you can put it on your headline instead of having the generic one above.
We want to reduce the number of posts on the group page to focus on business transactions.
So please note that posts should be about pictures or videos promoting:

At Z HANDY GIFT We create physical and virtual products to ease the day-to-day for individuals and corporations. " Shop Your Members" is one of the virtual products designed by Z HANDY GIFT "Business Services".
This platform is about supporting small businesses but we also want to help protect our customers?
Small businesses can be very fragile and despite the courage and determination of their owners they may not be able to deliver orders in accordance with the sales contract.
We tried, but the diversity of small businesses on the platform does not allow us to set up a Community Store global insurance policy.
I - We will therefore award the FOUR-STAR label (1) on a periodic basis to companies:
Our FOUR-STAR Label program aims to compensate a little bit for these shortcomings.
It's up to small businesses to provide services that will allow them to keep their FOUR-STAR Label.
II - We will also be setting up a consumer reviews page.
III - A review is carried out at least 3 times a year so some businesses could be upgraded or downgraded depending on their performance.
(1) - The FOUR-STAR Label program starts at FOUR-STARS and goes down to 0 stars.
The details will be sent on demand when listing your business on the Community Store for Vendors or when subscribing for small business shoppers.
(2) Small businesses are solely responsible for the validity of their professional insurance.
