How it all works:

The emporium is searched using store location. If you are based in the UK then your shop will appear when United Kingdom is selected by a user and so on.

The top results are included in a section called Premier Stores. Under the premier stores section all other shops are listed for the chosen area. Within each section the listing of shops is random and will change every time a user visits the page.

Randomized Results:

Thats right, when you visit a page in the emporium the stores listed in each section will have a random order! That mean all shops have equal exposure over time. Unlike other forms of online advertising no one can buy the top result. Everyone gets to have it which we believe is not only fair but helping to support the smaller businesses.

Premier Stores Sectoin:

The shopping emporium is sponsored by Alchemy Gothic. Any store selling the majority of Alchemy Gothic and Alchemy Poker product range will automatically be given Premier store status. This means that they shall appear in the first section of stores.

There is no entitlement to be feautred in this section. It is a sponsored area and only those who meet the criteria will be added to it. Results are ordered randomly.

Further Stores Section:

Under the premier section all other shops are listed for any given area. Results are ordered randomly.

After the three month trial period comes to an end stores are contacted to see if they wish to continue their listing. Currently the fees are as follows.

Pay per month:
£10 monthly fee.

Year Subscription.
£100 paid in full (provides a two month discount).
