Australia Post announces Australia’s favourite online retailers


After a nationwide search and a month of consumer voting, the winners of the Australia Post Online Retail Industry Awards (ORIAS) People’s Choice 2019 have been announced.

  • Kogan.com has once again been crowned Australia’s favourite large online retailer

This year more than a quarter of a million Australians cast a vote in the hotly contested ORIAS People’s Choice Awards. This is the only ORIAS award chosen by consumers.

“There is no vote more important than our customers’, so it is an absolute honour to be voted Australia’s favourite online retailer. Our customers drive every decision in our business and we are constantly working to deliver better value and customer experience – it’s what makes us jump out of bed in the morning, and drives our team to continually innovate.”

“We’re so thrilled and privileged to receive this award, one that we put down to our passion around customer experience. We’re obsessed with our customers, and we hope they’re equally obsessed with us.”
