Joining an Event

It’s likely that an event you are trying to create already exists on shopsy Local. If we find a match in our database as you’re filling in the event details, we will ask if you would like to add yourself to the existing event.

To see if your event already exist, use the browse tool on the top of the Shopsy Local page to select the city and time frame of your event. If you find the event, click on it and then click I’m Participating. From here, we’ll ask you what days and times you’ll be at the event.

You can also leave a message for buyers about what you’ll be selling or where they can find you (table or booth location, for example). After completing the required fields, you’ll receive confirmation that you successfully added yourself to the event and see how the page will appear to buyers. You will also have the option to share this event with buyers.

Editing or Deleting an Event

You can edit an existing event you’ve created by finding the event on Shopsy Local, clicking on it, and clicking Edit Event in the bottom left corner of the event box. Be sure to save your changes! If you’d like to edit any of the venue information provided automatically by Foursquare, you’ll need a Foursquare account.

At this time, it’s not possible to delete an event from Shopsy Local. Events added to Shopsy Local will remain on the site until the event’s end date has passed.
