New E Commerce Strategy is being launched by Visit Somerset
We have now come up with a definitive way forward that you can all buy into at no extra cost of your membership level (from Silver level upwards)

Effectively we have created an API link that allows Visit Somerset technology to now integrate with a first and second wave for WOO E commerce platforms and now Shopify platforms.

We are already now integrating Thatchers Cider, Somerset Toiletry Company, Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company and first independent retailer, Postscript in Frome .

We will be looking to develop further E commerce platforms - however if you have a WOO platform and are at Silver level and would like to engage its completely free and their is no commissions to pay.

Effectively we are launching the E Commerce objective, to support certain members to gain greater exposure and stimulate further demand of our Somerset producers and retailers in this combined world or Bricks and Mortar and  Online retail.  

All consumers will be able to click and buy directly from your platforms in realtime from Visit Somerset.

Want to take part then this is what we will need from you tech developers.

Woo commerce members will need to provide:
      *   User set as Shop manager - we do not need the login details for this user. We only need this status so we can get thedetails on the products from the API feed.
      *   API key and secret related to the Shop manager user noted above (see attached API from members) For WooCommerce > Settings > Advanced > Rest API
      *   Address of their website.

Shopify requirements:

What we need from you is, your Shopify shop name and access token.

If you have any questions please contact our team at 

Many thanks and look forward to hearing from you.
