Located just outside of central Brighton, our building is made with local materials and is powered by wind turbines, solar heating panels and collected surface water. We strive to work in a way that is sustainable, ethically responsible and environmentally friendly.

We are committed to providing great service, straight-talking information and the right tools for making online business a success. We believe in our nation of shopkeepers and want to ensure that everyone is able to leverage the advantages of digital innovation.
