Getting started on NearSt

Set up your NearSt account and connect your shop.

Once you've signed up to NearSt you're only a few steps from getting your shop live! 

Here’s what to expect: 

Step 1: Connect your Point-of-sale system.

Customized to your individual system, this is how NearSt connects to your shop and creates your online inventory. You’ll receive instructions letting you know how to connect, these will be based on the POS system you provided when first signing up. 

Step 2 is connecting your ‘Google My Business’ Account.

Once your POS system is connected, our onboarding team will be in touch to get you onboarded. To ensure your products show up in your shop’s Google My Business listing, we need to connect to it. It is really simple, and just involves you accepting our access request you’ll get when you sign up.

Your dedicated onboarding specialist will be there along the way to answer any questions along the way. 

 

Step 3: Gain access to your MyShop account .

 

At this stage you’ll gain access to your MyShop account, you can log in using the email you signed up with (if you’re not sure, feel free to ask our support team by using the live chat icon in the corner). You’ll receive an email with a link to sign in.  

 

In your MyShop account you can view results and insights, enable Local Inventory Ads, update your NearSt shop page and more! Our onboarding team will take you through your account once you’re up and running. 

 

Step 4: Personalise your shop page

Your NearSt package will have a direct link to your NearSt shop page. Your shop page will have key details to drive shoppers in-store. We’ll create a basic shop profile for you, but if you want to get the most out of NearSt you should personalise this under ‘shop page’ in your MyShop account.  

And that’s it! Your dedicated onboarding specialist will be in touch to take you through your MyShop account and how you can make the most out of NearSt
