SelfPoint was founded in 2012 by a talented team with an extensive background in retail, POS and e-commerce. Our mission is to bring all grocery stores online, regardless of their size - from local markets and “mom-and-pop” shops to large supermarkets. 


The online grocery space is growing at a breakneck speed, with a number of analyst reports predicting an annual growth of 13% - 26% percent. Grocers who are not online in the next few years will find themselves struggling to survive against large chain supermarkets and emerging major players in the online grocery market.

Small to medium size grocery stores wishing to go online face a number of challenges. Excessive costs and a prolonged, time-consuming process are just some of the deterrents. Furthermore, an online grocery, unlike other e-commerce sites, must list thousands of items and create a user-friendly shopping experience where customers can purchase multiple items in a short period of time


SelfPoint has created the solution that enables every grocery store to move online. We offer a state of the art online grocery platform, which integrates directly into your point of sale system. In a matter of days, groceries can have their full catalog available to their customers on an attractive, custom branded e-commerce site - no matter if it’s 100 items or 100,000!
