About Spiffy Stores

About Spiffy Stores Ecommerce

100% Australian owned and built ecommerce software

Spiffy Stores was created by online specialists Shawn Finlay and Brian Kenn. Together, Shawn (the creative one) and Brian (the technical one) have many years of experience working on web solutions for clients such as Time Warner, Rip Curl, Toyota, Toshiba, Fujitsu, PWC, ANZ Bank, Mars, Australian Stock Exchange, National Australia Bank, BankWest, Telstra and Macquarie University.

In 2001 we formed Spiffy Internet, which was originally conceived as a design studio providing a range of services to small businesses... including working with them to establish business plans, developing their identity and even hosting their web sites. E-commerce was then just starting up, and we had a number of clients wanting to sell online. We started working with "E-commerce in a box" type solutions, but soon found they they were difficult to customise for Australian businesses, and also that many of them were bloated, resource-hungry monsters that were difficult to use and set up.

In 2004, we began building our own online store software. We had the experience with our existing customers, and the creative and technical expertise to do so. We already had several customers using the the base code, but their stores were heavily customised.

After a lot of work, and a complete code re-write, we opened a Beta program in 2007 and invited a few small businesses to work with us. Their feedback was essential for us to know what's most important for a wider range of small businesses when selling on the web. We launched Spiffy Stores in early 2010, and we've grown substantially since then. Spiffy Stores is now used by hundreds of Australian small businesses who have found it a safe, easy and reliable way to sell online.

The story doesn't end there though. We're constantly adding new features and improving the software, so if you have any suggestions for us... please let us know!
