No primary category set

eBay Australia have partnered with Australian Made to support local businesses providing a pathway to market for Australian manufacturers to grow their businesses online at a time when they need it most.

Australian Made is a not-for-profit public company established in 1999 by the Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry and the network of state and territory chambers of commerce, with the cooperation of the Federal Government.

This is Australian Made’s first partnership with an online marketplace and comes as a growing number of online shoppers demonstrate their desire to support Aussie businesses during this challenging period with eBay recording a 54% increase in items purchased from Australian sellers since mid-April.

The partnership will give eBay’s 11-million unique monthly visitors access to Australian Made on eBay; a central hub that offers shoppers one convenient location to find products bearing the iconic Australian Made accreditation, across a range of categories including fashion, health and beauty, automotive, and home and garden.

“We are delighted to partner with eBay to provide this new channel to market for Australian makers. Not only does Australian Made on eBay provide our homegrown businesses the opportunity to tap into a huge online audience nationwide, it also provides them the opportunity to export to other markets and grow their overseas customer base too.”
– Ben Lazzaro, Chief Executive, Australian Made

“As Australia’s number one shopping site, we’ve seen more Australians come to eBay for the things they need in recent months from everyday essentials to office furniture. One standout trend has been an increased demand for products made and sold by Australian sellers as buyers rally to support local businesses and manufacturers.

Our partnership with Australian Made also offers eBay’s Australian small and medium businesses the opportunity to be discovered by 174-million global buyers by displaying the renowned Australian Made logo – a mark of trust and quality – and helping to drive future sales.”
– Tim MacKinnon, Managing Director, eBay Australia
