I’ve found every person at hardtofind that I have had the pleasure of dealing with thus far to be willing to go above and beyond to help us grow our business. It really is an amazing platform, which we are excited to be a part of. Everyone I have ever spoken to about hardtofind has either shopped on the site, or definitely heard of it.
Nadine Bartlett, Alexa Lane
We've been amazed by the response. At times in the run up to Christmas we were posting several hardtofind orders a day. Both the Royal Mail and Australian Post have worked near flawlessly. Australians pay good money for a quality product, and we’ve definitely found this to be the case.
Hugo Lesser, Estados, UK Seller
It was very easy to create the storefront and upload our products. We were live after five days! The hardtofind team is always happy to help and very positive. We received our first orders within 24 hours of being live. They pushed us from the beginning and the Australian market is really receptive to our products. Without hardtofind we would not have been able to reach those customers. We are now investing in their marketing campaigns and we look forward to our next projects together.
Clemence Lamet, Merci Maman, UK Seller
