What is Shop Cardiff?

Shop Cardiff is a directory of businesses’ trading offers during the COVID-19 outbreak and an online sales tool which allows businesses to continue to make sales. The platform has been developed by FOR Cardiff in order to help local businesses continue to trade during this unprecedented period.


Who is FOR Cardiff?

FOR Cardiff is the trading name of Cardiff BID Ltd, the business improvement district for Cardiff city centre. We are a business-led, not for profit organisation voted for by the city’s businesses with an ambitious plan to transform Cardiff city centre – making it more welcoming, vibrant and influential. You can find out more about us at www.forcardiff.com


Are you making money through this?

No, Shop Cardiff and FOR Cardiff are not for profit initiatives. This is a project specifically designed to support Cardiff businesses and all money we received is returned directly to the business selling the goods. The only fees charged are those of our online card payment provider – these are fees which businesses would also pay for their own online shops or when processing a card transaction in store. The City of Arcades merchandise is owned by FOR Cardiff and revenue from sales of those items will be reinvested by us into Cardiff city centre.


I’ve noticed a mistake in your directory.

The directory was compiled by hand and things are moving very quickly at the moment which means things are bound to become out of date. If you’ve noticed something that you think is not quite right please let us know by emailing shop@forcardiff.com and we’ll make any necessary changes. We’re all doing our best to support Cardiff businesses at this time and we appreciate your support.


Can I list my business on Shop Cardiff?

Probably. Click the submit business button on the main navigation bar and fill in your details to have your business listed on our site, listings are manually approved by a member of the FOR Cardiff team so they won’t appear immediately. If you want to discuss selling products directly via Shop Cardiff please email shop@forcardiff.com and a member of the team will be in touch with you. We reserve the right to refuse or remove listings at our own discretion.
