Booktopia Group’s first chapter began in 2004. Since then it has become the largest Australian-owned online book retailer. It sells one item every 6.1 seconds and in FY2018, shipped over 4.7 million items.

In addition to books, Booktopia also sells eBooks, DVDs, audio books, magazines, maps, calendars, journals and stationery resulting in $113.9 million in revenue in FY2018.

Booktopia Group started as a side project on a $10 per day budget. So far, it has had no external investment.

The company takes a technology-based and customer-centric approach for all its operations, investing significantly in its 13,000 sqm Distribution Centre and Sydney Headquarters.

Tens of millions of dollars have already been invested in automation, websites, warehouse and internal software, pricing algorithms, re-ordering algorithms, stock holding (currently 148,000 titles), digital marketing programs, supply chain technology and people.

This innovation and customer-centric approach results in fantastic customer service including same day shipping. Booktopia's Australian call centre has been a point of differentiation since it was adopted on the first day of operation. Customers can call a local number and speak to an expert in the Sydney headquarters which is a fundamental aspect in the customer-centric model.

In 2018 Booktopia won NSW Business of the Year and Australian Business of the Year (People’s Choice Award) at the Telstra Business Awards. It also won Best Pureplay Retailer at the Online Industry Awards. The Company has also been listed in the AFR/BRW Fast 100 eight times and is the only company to achieve this. In 2016 and 2017 it won Book Retailer of the Year.

With more than 5.2 million customers in Australia and New Zealand, the company is inviting their customers and beyond to become shareholders and grow with the company. The money raised will go towards further innovation, more automation and holding more stock.

What is equity crowdfunding?

Equity crowdfunding became accessible to all Australian's over the age of 18 in January this year (2018). It's a new way to invest that enables broad groups of investors (‘the crowd’) to fund early stage companies in return for equity. It helps these companies access the capital they require and gives investors a chance to invest in businesses they are passionate about.
