OzBargain was recently cited by Roy Morgan Research as the fastest growing site in the online shopping category, notching up 27m pageviews and 9m sessions.

The big success over the last few years has been OzBargain, a community message board for like-minded bargain-hunters. The site doesn’t sell anything directly and instead acts as a hub for visitors (and merchants) to share information about sales and offers, whether online or in bricks-and-mortar stores.
Nearly half of Australians agree they sometimes research products online but then go buy them offline, and the success of OzBargain’s platform proves that many consumers are deeply engaged in omni-channel shopping.
