Frequently asked questions

What is shopperoo.com.au?


Shopperoo Aus is a platform developed to advertise locally manufactured products in Australia. Our aim is to list as much local businesses we can to create one unified platform where all Australian made products are showcased and help our own economy. We are also contributing to create more jobs in our community, products like our face masks are all made locally from people who recently lost their jobs.




How do I register as a business to sell on your platform?


Registration is easy, navigate to our page here: https://www.shopperoo.com.au/register-business Or feel free to contact us on contact@shopperoo.com.au Once registered, a member of our team will get in touch with you to complete the registration process and showcase your business on the website.




Is there any fees to advertise my products?


Registration is free for any business. If you are a not-for-profit organisation, we will advertise your products for free and won't take any commission at all. If you are not a not-for-profit but are supporting a good cause, we will support you in this and advertise for free and handle the sales for you. For other businesses, there's a small markup of 2% - 5% on your products to advertise on this platform to cover the cost of running the platform and providing a salary to the people who lost their jobs and are supporting this platform. Commission is on sales only and not on listing.




Where are you based?


We are based in Melbourne Victoria.




Our belief?


We believe in making this nation a better place. We can only achieve this by supporting Australian manufacturers, growers & service providers. If there's one thing this crisis has taught us is that we were overly dependent on overseas manufacturers and were slowly killing Australian made products. We can bring this back, 80% of people interviewed were willing to pay a extra premium for an Australian made product.




How do you verify the products being advertised?


We personally get in touch and verify every nomination & submission through our platform. Though we are not a certifcation organisation, we rely on Australian made certifications from https://www.australianmade.com.au/




What is the difference between you and other marketplaces?


Unlike other marketplaces, we are based in Australia, supported by locals and pays the salary of people who lost their jobs during this pandemic. Our fee structure is setup to cover only the basic cost of our website. Most important of all, our platform has been designed to support Australian made products only.





Face Masks FAQ

Where are your face masks made?


All our face masks are currently being manufactured in Melbourne. We have around 5 manufacturers from different regions to produce hand made face masks. These groups are local businesses or individuals who recently lost business or their jobs.

As a good practice it is recommended to wear a face mask when leaving home if it is difficult to keep 1.5 metres apart from other people. - Wearing a face mask protects you and your community by providing an additional physical barrier to coronavirus (COVID-19). - Keeping 1.5 metres between yourself and others and washing your hands are still the best defences against coronavirus (COVID-19). Please refer to your State's advice for more information.
