At NearSt, we’re on a mission to get people all around the world back into high street shops. Every day, millions of people search for products in Google - we help physical retailers get their in-store inventory visible online.

Our technology automatically uploads and associates the products on your shelves to your Google Business listing, so shoppers looking for your business or products can browse your shelves online.

What can you do with NearSt?

Bring your products online in seconds: NearSt helps local shoppers see what you stock. We connect to your Point of Sale and automatically list your in-stock products in Google. There are no data entry or manual updates needed. We use the barcodes from your POS to create high-quality product listings and constantly keep them up to date in Google.

Where will my products appear?

See What's In Store: Your customers can browse your in-store inventory from your “See What’s In Store”, located in your Google My Business listing. Shoppers searching for your business not only see your key business details (like telephone number and opening hours) but can also check what you have in stock before visiting your store.

Local Inventory Ads: Grow your local awareness further with Local Inventory Ads. NearSt Local Inventory Ads are available as a flexible add-on service, where you can run highly targeted product ads in Google. Select a daily budget and we'll promote your products to customers searching for them nearby. Starting at less than the price of a cup of coffee each day, it's a great way of driving new customers to your store.
