Streetify - The innovative e-commerce app that lets you put together your ideal high street at home and saves you money in the process...

A fabled boulevard of dreams, where every object our hearts desired could be obtained for an archaic trade of value-assigned paper and metal. Remuneration. Well, okay, perhaps we’re not quite at the point where we’ve forgotten what money and shopping are, but we are past the point where we can just amble along the high street and browse and window shop.

For the moment, setting foot on the high street is as unobtainable as setting foot on the Moon. But perhaps we can bring the high street to us instead.

That is the idea that UK-based startup Streetify has had. Their eCommerce platform allows users to not only bring the high street to their living room, but to create their own high street.

The app allows you to put together your ideal high street full of the shops you want to visit, or you can visit real-world high streets like Oxford Street or Fifth Avenue.

Streetify wants to save you money, but it also wants to save you time, so it searches through over 50 deal sites to find deals, voucher codes, and cashback deals for those shops so that you won’t miss out or spend time trawling through them yourself.

This is not possible where small, local shops do not have an online presence, but there is good news on that front to - with Streetify, local shops can be transformed into online shops, hopefully going some way to protecting small business owners and staff. And it is free for them to do so. So far, over 5 million shops have been turned into virtual shop fronts on the platform.

At the moment, Streetify is available in browsers and as an Android and iOS app in the UK, the US, Canada, India, and Australia, and it will be available elsewhere a little later in the year.

Obviously, the fact that you can find deals from over 50 deal sites while shopping in you favourite shops or world-famous ones in which you would never set foot in the real world is a big pull, but what really pushes the platform through the goalposts in this current climate is that ability for local shops to get seen and keep selling.
