carsales’ New Online Marketplace for RV and Outdoor Accessories is the Ultimate Online Destination for Outdoor Enthusiasts

Marketplacer, a global technology platform that enables brands, retailers, suppliers, communities, and innovators to build and grow successful online marketplaces at scale, today announced that carsales’ new Marketplacer-powered caravancampingsales Store has been designed to meet the demands of a market segment worth an estimated $6 billion annually in Australia. 

The new site is part of caravancampingsales – a carsales subsidiary – and was built in collaboration with Marketplacer and its partners Overdose. and CrescoData, a Pitney Bowes Company. 

The Store enables caravancampingsales to expand beyond its core RV sales to include a variety of complementary products for outdoors enthusiasts looking for gear for their RV, as well as camping, outdoors accessories, beachwear and watersports equipment. 

carsales chose Marketplacer because it wanted to build a separate marketplace that could easily integrate with the e-commerce platforms of its partner sellers. By plugging into Marketplacer’s Connected Commerce accelerator technology, carsales could continue to leverage its existing e-commerce capabilities, while expanding its product and category range. Now, caravancampingsales’ third-party sellers can quickly and seamlessly integrate their products into the new Store and shoppers get the benefit of a curated shopping experience. 

“The online marketplace platform will help more Australians get outside and enjoy the outdoors in comfort and style,” said Jason Wyatt, CEO and co-founder of Marketplacer. “Shoppers looking for the best RV and outdoor gear can look no further than the new caravancampingsales Store, and sellers can easily reach more customers using our best-in-class e-commerce platform.” 

For its part, channel manager CrescoData, a Pitney Bowes Company, built an integration for carsales and Marketplacer into its own branded portal that acts as a one-stop shop for sellers to access the new caravancampingsales Store. This means that sellers using a wide variety of existing e-commerce platforms will be able to integrate more seamlessly and unlock more potential for them at pace.

“We are thrilled to be the integration partner for Marketplacer, powering the automation of carsales’ new RV and outdoor accessories marketplace,” said Mark Gray, head of growth and partnerships at CrescoData, a Pitney Bowes Company. “We worked extensively with carsales to help reduce merchant onboarding times and seamlessly integrate them to e-commerce platforms such as Shopify, Magento and Maropost. Together, we’re driving innovation and convenience in the e-commerce landscape.” 

For the caravancampingsales Store front-end experience, Overdose. designed and built an intricate, seamless solution that includes customized checkout capabilities and precision shipping logic that allows sellers to apply and stack shipping rules for an extensive range of products and sellers.

“The Overdose. Australia crew embarked on an ambitious project with carsales’ caravancampingsales Store,” said Martin Cox, technical director at Overdose. “Now, we celebrate this transformation, as we’ve collectively not only met, but exceeded the demands of a complex marketplace, setting new standards in the industry.”

According to carsales Product Director Ryan Svaghi, “Building the new caravancampingsales Store with our partners Marketplacer, CrescoData and Overdose. was an amazing team effort. As we go into the summer season, we are looking forward to helping Aussies gear-up for their next RV adventure.”

caravancampingsales Store launched earlier this year and already has thousands of products on its site, with many more to come.
