We started out as online retailers too, experiencing first-hand all of the problems retailers face when trying to scale a business, and we thought ‘there must be a better way’.
So we built one.
We started our journey in ecommerce, selling a few items on eBay. Before too long, that turned into an eBay department store, and then an online store too.
Sales were growing rapidly, but there was one big problem: for every 100 orders we got, we had to hire another staff member. This is because eBay didn’t talk to our website, which didn’t talk to our accounting software, which didn’t talk to our freight providers, and we couldn’t find a management solution that didn’t cost an astronomical amount. So we built our own.
What we ended up building was not only a solution for us, but everyone we worked with—our wholesale suppliers, our competitors, and everyone else who was struggling with the same problem.
Over ten years on, Neto is now Maropost Commerce Cloud, an award-winning platform used by thousands of retailers and wholesalers worldwide to accelerate growth because it allows them to manage every aspect of their business from a single tool. From ecommerce and marketplaces like Amazon and eBay, to point of sale, to inventory and fulfilment, Maropost Commerce Cloud is ecommerce unified.

We aren’t customer-centric, we’re customer-obsessed. This means that every single thing we do, we ask first, ‘how will this help our customers?’. This commitment has helped us stay aligned with what we set out to do—help retailers and wholesalers grow.
When we first started, we relied on word-of-mouth to spread the word. It worked so well, that it’s still what we focus on today.
Our talented and diverse team of professionals work in an energetic, collaborative, and motivating space to create a platform that’s worth talking about, as opposed to focusing on profit.
That’s how we run our workplace too. When you meet a Maropost employee, just ask them what it’s like to work here. We’re pretty sure you’ll want to join the team too.
A new survey suggests 95 percent of Australian online retailers expect to be selling through Amazon Australia by the end of 2018.
Convenience is the number one reason people shop online and Amazon make it easier and more convenient than anyone.
Australian consumers are increasing their online retail spend, but that doesn’t mean they’ve given up on in-store.
