AllGoods reaches 1 million listings in first year
Trade Me competitor AllGoods reaches 1 million listings in first year
Just 12 months since launching their platform for buying and selling in New Zealand, AllGoods has announced that they have hit their one-millionth listing.
The Christchurch startup has maintained steady growth over the past few months and even reached the top rank for New Zealand shopping apps since releasing their app late last year.
AllGoods CEO, Levi Fawcett, is proud of the achievement, saying: “We’ve worked extremely hard over the past year to get where we are today. We’ve talked with thousands of our users to make sure the platform provides a truly amazing buying and selling experience. Plus, it’s free.”
Starting out in a garage as a small group of friends with a shared goal, the AllGoods team quickly gained support from businesses which recognized the potential for the platform to revolutionize buying and selling in New Zealand. Within months of founding a team and establishing their brand, AllGoods launched their website and app.
AllGoods, which offers a free platform for Kiwis to buy and sell, is now largely considered second only to incumbent market leader, Trade Me.
With Trade Me’s reported sale to British equity firm Apax Partners, AllGoods now becomes the largest Kiwi-owned marketplace in New Zealand. Although these are big shoes to fill, they believe that they are up to the challenge.
“The team have tried to keep the platform as easy to use as possible, for both the everyday Kiwi and the average New Zealand business. I think this has been fundamental to our success”, continued Fawcett.
AllGoods reports they already support over 700 New Zealand businesses who sell through the online website and app. Their vision is to use e-commerce as a sustainable means to support local businesses and give back to the community.
“We’re offering a fresh spin on the classic online marketplace and while we have only just begun this journey, we look forward to the years to come.”
