Black Friday - Record Day

Company

Add a comment By Che

Just in case you live under a rock and didn't realise, Friday last week was Black Friday and was a record day for Mighty Ape. We received and shipped more orders than any other day in Mighty Ape's history! Black Friday is the informal name for the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, and is known as a day for massive shopping deals; a practice that has caught on worldwide in recent years including here at Mighty Ape.

On Black Friday, seventeen products were sold every minute at Mighty Ape. In 24 hours, we sold 13 tonnes of products, in the same volume as 76,000 litres of water! Every 2 seconds a product was picked, packed, and shipped from our warehouse during work hours.

Games was our most popular category. Some of our top selling games include: Call of Duty: WWII, Assassin's Creed Origins, FIFA 18, Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, Gran Turismo Sport, to name a few. In fact we sold so many games, that if you played through the main story of just the top 5 games alone, it'd take 2 years of non-stop gaming!

Here are the top 10 items from other categories:

  1. Sands Alive! Box of Sand (Toys)
  2. L.O.L: Surprise! Doll – Little Sisters Series 2 Blind Bag (Toys)
  3. Logan (Movies & TV)
  4. Hatchimals: CollEGGtibles – Egg Carton Set 12pk (Toys)
  5. The Secret Life Of Pets (Movies & TV)
  6. Bunch O' Balloons (Toys)
  7. LEGO Creator Volkswagen T1 Camper Van (10220) (Toys)
  8. Soggy Doggy (Toys)
  9. Monopoly: Star Wars Edition (Toys)
  10. Bad Dad by David Walliams (Books)

Add a comment By Che

COMPETITION CLOSED. Congratulations to our winner Glynis Bartley

We have introduced a convenient new payment method that is perfect for those of you who don't have credit cards (or prefer not to use them).

POLi is just like internet banking – you pay for your orders out of your regular cheque or savings account – BUT your payments are cleared instantly so your orders are ready to ship immediately. No more waiting overnight for your payment to go through!

How it works:

To use POLi place an order as normal then when you come to the payment page in the checkout select POLi as your payment method. You will then be prompted to select your bank, enter your login details, and confirm the payment. That's it. Simple.

Today we lift the covers off our shiny new website

The devices we use to browse the internet have changed a lot since we last rebuilt our website. Screens have got both bigger and smaller – and we own and use more of them. Our old website was becoming a little long in the tooth – so we've evolved to keep up. More than just a lick of paint – Mighty Ape has been extensively overhauled to provide a great experience on a broad range of devices from widescreen PC monitors, to tablets, right down to the smartphone in your pocket (our dedicated mobile site is now surplus to requirements and has been officially retired). We hope you’ll find the new site faster, easier and more fun to browse!

In addition to these cool usability improvements we’ve also refreshed our brand and company colours. You’ll notice an all-new logo plus a more neutral colour palette in the header and page templates. These changes make our products – which are becoming more diverse in nature – the centrepiece of the shopping experience. You’ll notice product images are bigger, and depending on the size of your screen, there will be more of them on the page. Mighty Ape is now home to over 450,000 products across 16 Departments – and our new site ensures all of them feel equally at home.

Your existing Mighty Ape account and all your orders have automatically moved across to the new site so there’s nothing for you to do other than pick your favourite device and go check it out for yourself. If you have questions or feedback about the site please get in touch!

As always we thank you for supporting us in our mission to be Australia’s best online shopping site! You choosing to shop with us is what allows us to do what we love and we really appreciate it.

Mighty Ape now recognised as Google Trusted Store

Company

Add a comment By Che

Mighty Ape was recently selected to join the Google Trusted Stores program. To help shoppers identify online merchants that offer a great shopping experience, the Google Trusted Store badge is awarded to ecommerce sites that demonstrate a track record of on-time shipping and excellent customer service. When you browse our website, you will see a Google Trusted Store badge and can click on it for more information.

Our Chief Marketing Gorilla Gracie MacKinlay is, “pleased that Mighty Ape is now a Google Trusted Store.” She said, “becoming a Google Trusted Store requires Google thoroughly reviewing and monitoring your site for one to three months. So we're glad to get their tick of approval.”

As an added benefit, when a shopper makes a purchase at a Google Trusted Store, they have the option to select free purchase protection from Google. Then in the unlikely event of an issue with their purchase, they can request Google’s help, and Google will work with Mighty Ape and the customer to address the issue. As part of this, Google offers up to $1,000 lifetime purchase protection for eligible purchases.

Google Trusted Stores is entirely free, both for shoppers and for online stores. The program helps online stores like Mighty Ape attract new customers, increase sales and differentiate themselves by showing off their excellent service via the badge on their websites.
