Case Studies

Bits of Australia

Micaela Smith created Bits of Australia seven years ago with a mission to create high quality authentic goods that support local communities. She now has more than 1,000 items in her eBay store with sales growing by double digits in 2020.

Our partnership with eBay has enabled us to reach a broader audience. I strongly believe you can’t rely on one channel if you want to keep the sales flowing.
