FAQ’s

There is no straight answer to this question. Popup pricing depends on a range of factors, such as the store’s location, the size of the space, duration of the lease and your popup production costs. You should also consider stock costs, staffing, administration fees and marketing spend in your budgeting.

Once we receive your Brand Profile and PopUp Request details, we’ll be able to connect you to opportunities that suit your brief and budget.

Yes. PopUp Shop Shop charges a Sourcing Fee for successful short term leases secured, with a minimum charge of R1000. Depending on the payment plan you choose, this Sourcing Fee varies between 20 – 30% of the total popup rental.

Technically, a popup could happen over any duration that’s considered a short period of time but typically, we work with landlords that prefer a minimum 3-6 month pop-up lease to start.

Sometimes spaces are available only for a month or two between two long term tenancies; at other times vacancies may be longer, allowing easy extension of your popup lease or the opportunity to convert to permanent tenancy. 

Some of our property partners are happy to accommodate very short popup shops – for just a week, or a weekend.

Yes, it may be possible to extend your tenancy. This is entirely up to the landlord though, as they may have another tenant taking occupation after your popup. The best approach is to let PopUp Shop Shop know as soon as possible if you wish to extend so that we can negotiate the terms for you.

Should you wish to stay on as a permanent tenant, we’ll facilitate the process for you. It is a bit more complicated and detailed than preparing a popup, but we’re here to assist!

PopUp Shop Shop works with many landlords and property owners across South Africa. We have listed some of our property partners here on the website, but we can send your popup request to others in our network too.

Then, it’s time to set your popup in motion. Starting with admin, you will need to submit a tenant application and your FICA documents for the landlord’s administration. You will also need to prepare store concept presentation showing the products you intend to sell or promote, and the look ‘n feel and layout of your store.

Yes we can, and we’d love to! PopUp Shop Shop provides a whole suite of services to make popping up a breeze. 

You can hire stylish, easy to assemble shop-fitting and display equipment from our curated capsule collection. We also provide general store services, such as electrical, wet-works as well as manufacturing of custom display and brand features.

PopUp Shop Shop curates collaborative popup shops as special projects from time to time, and we happen to be in the fortunate position to know of upcoming collabs of interest. 

Ensure we have your Brand Profile and PopUp Request and we’ll keep you informed of opportunities.

Testimonials

EthniKids

Thanks for connecting us to an opportunity that matched our business so well. The Zone @ Rosebank was a great fit. We are grateful for the seamless experience.

Our popup was the biggest risk we had taken, as the financial investment was much more than we had laid out before. With PopUp Shop Shop’s guidance the process was smooth and really simple. We have learnt so much about our brand in a short space of time and we would definitely recommend that any small business should take a chance and really learn more about yourself and your target audience.

What a fantastic first two days of our popup at The Zone! The reception and vibe is just marvellous. We look forward to the months ahead. Thank you so much for everything.
