Online shopping boom
The WOH launch comes as online shopping in the Australian market is expected to hugely accelerate in the coming year. According to IBISWorld the market size of the Australian online shopping industry in 2021 is $43.9billion, an increase of 35.29% from 2020.
According to Roy Morgan, Australians will spend more than $11 billion on Christmas presents this year, with a significant proportion coming from online sales. Australians are turning to the internet in a big way – an average of 48% of Christmas presents are likely to be purchased online, with 58% of people saying they’ll purchase more or significantly more items online than they did last year.
“Our gifting marketplace is powered by its team of curators who have sourced unique products, standout experiences, and socially conscious finds,” Saada said. “We hope to bring more opportunities to local business owners to showcase their products and help them capitalise on the growing market.”
