Now Supporting the Amazon Australia Marketplace
With Amazon’s entry in the end of 2017, the Australian eCommerce marketing is growing quickly. According to country manager of Amazon Australia, Rocco Braeuniger, the Amazon Australia marketplace (Amazon.com.au) already contains over 80 million products.
The Australia Post’s 3rd annual eCommerce industry report, Inside Australian Online Shopping 2018, states that Australians spent $21.3 billion buying goods online in 2017, an increase of 18.7% over the previous year, and, perhaps more importantly, “online spending growth outstripped traditional retail by 16.2 percentage points.”
Other important trends that can be gleaned from this report include:
Purchases from mobile devices grew 58% in 2017, a six percentage point increase from the previous year while transactions from desktops and laptops fell 11%.
Purchases from eCommerce platforms, like eBay and Amazon, grew 74.8% year-over-year.
The top three products bought by online spend were: consumer electronics, clothing and books.
With the Australia Post predicting that 1 in 10 items will be bought online by 2020, now is a great time to get into the Australian eCommerce market. Algopix is glad to support you with product research data for both Amazon’s and eBay’s AU marketplaces.
Get Your Product Analysis on Mobile, When and Where You Need It
You probably know that mobile commerce is growing. In fact, Shopify reports that, “of all the things people did on their phones last year, mobile shopping was the fastest growing segment — up 54% year over year.”
In contrast, according to Adobe Digital Insights, desktop accounted for 44% of all traffic yet commanded 61% of sales during the 2017 online holiday shopping season.
We actually found a similar pattern among Algopix users. While indeed it may be more comfortable to use Algopix on your desktop or laptop, sometimes immediacy is more important. You want the information, and you want it now; your mobile is always there while your laptop may not always be handy.
At Algopix we understand that every second of your time is valuable and we want to do everything we can to give you the information you want, in real-time, when you want it.

Do Your Bulk Analysis Direct from Excel Files
With Algopix, we let you do your product analysis one at a time or use our bulk analysis feature to save time by analyzing up to 200 products at once.
Now, instead of having to upload a CSV file to get your analysis, you can now simply upload an Excel file. We realize that you often receive price lists from vendors in Excel format. So while it may not be too complicated, you are still saving the time of having to convert the file you want to analyze into CSV format.
This new support for Excel files provides the double benefit of eliminating the confusion about the type of CSV file you need and lets you quickly analyze an existing vendor price list without making any changes, so you can begin your analysis immediately.
