The Story

In 2007, Jason Wyatt was chartered accountant working in London and his best friend Sam Salter, a childhood mate, was selling classified ads for some of Australia’s biggest magazines.

Salter was from a cycling family, so when the two caught up in Melbourne, inevitably their conversation turned into an idea to create a marketplace for bikes, BikeExchange.

In just a few years, BikeExchange evolved into a significant international success story with millions of buyers and sellers transacting across the platform every year.

In 2016, the marketplace platform and model was released to market, positioning what is now known as Marketplacer which offers businesses a SaaS solution to create their own online marketplaces.
