​For nearly 40 years, we have specialised in group buying for small independent retailers. We provide a powerful network of suppliers, an extensive range of products, easy cash flow management tools and cost-saving Member benefits and advantages to over 400 small Australian businesses.

We're the specialists in your category

We have supported thousands of small businesses through our buying group spanning multiple categories, including Appliances, Books, Computers, Electronics, Entertainment, Jewellery and Tech Repair. Members get access to sought-after products from top global brands at competitive prices - along with favourable trading terms - from our extensive supplier network, available through our specialised category buying groups.

You are not alone, most small businesses struggle with:

  • Access to preferential rates on freight, merchant rates, and other business costs

  • Negotiating with suppliers on competitive pricing and product ranges

  • Managing multiple invoices and recurring expenses manually

  • Intense competition from big brands and retailers

  • Lack of professional support and advice from like-minded peers

We leverage our industry network and years of experience to help you survive and thrive
