Frequently asked questions from local shop owners

Is it free to be a shop on Metaranx?

Yes! We add all shops, information about them, search keywords, and link out to your shop for free from our platform. We aim to promote small and local businesses and give customers a way to search for and find you and what you sell. It's completely free to be part of Metaranx.

Do you share local shops not built on Shopify?

At this time, we are only adding businesses built on Shopify stores. Shopify is a Canadian company, like us, and we thought it'd be great to start there! If your local or small business's online store is not built on Shopify, please let us know which platform you use when you fill out our Shop Owners form. It helps us determine where to go next with our expansion plans.

Do you share local shops that are in cities outside of Toronto on Metaranx?

At this time, we are starting with businesses in Toronto as it's our company's HQ city and we know it well! We plan to expand across Ontario and Quebec quickly. If your local or small business's shop is not headquartered in Toronto, please let us know which city your business is in when you fill out our Shop Owners form. It helps us determine where to go next with our expansion plans.

Do you plan to only share Canadian businesses on Metaranx?

At this time, we are starting with Canada! If your local or small business's shop is not headquartered in Canada, please let us know which country your business is in when you fill out our Shop Owners form. It helps us determine where to go next with our expansion plans.

Do you have any rules for which stores you allow on Metaranx?
