History Of Our Site
When Australian Cybermalls
started we attracted a little less than 1,000 unique visitors in our first
month on the Net. But a year later (April 1997) that figure had risen to
about 20,000 visitors a month; and after another year (April 1998) this had
grown to about 50,000 visitors a month. By the end of our third year (April
1999) this had grown again to around 80,000 visitors a month.
This was equivalent to 300,000
web pages and required 8.68 GBytes of bandwidth.
In September 1998 we moved
onto fast 155 Mb/sec OC-3 lines, and in March 1999 moved again to an ever
faster 455 Mb/sec OC-48 line. You can view our most current site statistics
Australian Cybermalls contains
a mixture of:
Commercial retail sites
These are sites operated by
commercial traders which offer goods or services for sale, or which
provide an information resource for intending purchasers who'd like
to do some comparison shopping. Most of our commercial sites provide something
of value free to reward you for dropping by. The prices they quote
are generally in Australian dollars, though some express prices in $US.
These are sites operated by
Australian Cybermalls or others which do not operate for profit. They're
fun sites that show you where to get free software, graphics, information
or find other great places on the Net. These sites are funded by our commercial
tenants and/or by advertisers.
These are international sites
which have opened a presence at Australian Cybermalls to bring their products
and services to the attention of our visitors, and who've agreed to abide
site policies. Unlike
the first two categories, they are not hosted directly on our servers.
Most quote their prices in US dollars.
The commercial sites in Australian
Cybermalls often display niche products or services that are not generally
available in the normal retail market. Or they provide large quantities
of detailed product information so that you can research your purchase
decision before you enter a terrestrial retail store.
Some of these products and
services are unusual but all products and services displayed
by our commercial tenants are certainly real, worthwhile and deliverable.You
can buy with confidence from any commercial site you'll find
Unlike some sites on the Internet,
we know almost all our tenants personally and stay closely in touch
with each one of them on a frequent basis through our regular client updates,
email and personal contacts. So we can certify to you that they're established
(and very good!) real-world businesses who are using the Net as an online
extension to their normal daily operations.
If you're visiting our site
from outside Australia you'll be pleased to know that most of our commercial
traders are happy to ship your order anywhere in the world (though
from time to time some products or offers are limited to Australia or the
USA only - and where this is the case you'll find this is made quite
Australia has access to advanced
freight forwarding systems and in most cases any physical products you order
can be delivered to your doorstep within 2 to 10 days, depending on
where you are. All our traders can be reached by phone and fax as well as
The same applies if you're
in Australia and are ordering products or services from our international
If you're ordering online,
you'll also be pleased to know that from January 1997 all our online order
forms were moved onto a secure commerce server for your own security
and peace of mind. All our commercial tenants making use of online forms
can accept at least VISA and Mastercard too (some accept other cards as
All the tenants in Australian
Cybermalls maintain the highest ethical standards and offer a 100%
satisfaction guarantee. This means that if you aren't satisfied with
any goods or services you purchase through any of our sites - for any
reason - our traders agree to refund your purchase price in full
promptly and cheerfully as soon as you return the product.
This is common business practice
in the 1990s and we know we certainly wouldn't want to deal with any
business that didn't have enough faith in its products or services to do
this. We're sure you wouldn't either.
If any trader on our site should
ever fail to live up to this guarantee (and no-one has yet, we hasten to
add!) you can
contact us and we'll follow
the matter up on your behalf.
