The Bushcraft Oz store is filled with products which have been hand made by local Australian craftsmen. Many of them are regular and well known members of the popular BushcraftOz forum.
They don’t just sell gear that looks pretty (although much of it is) and they’re not interested in selling products that they wouldn’t use themselves. Their products are tested under Australian conditions, and many of the items on sale are the result of extensive research drawing on the generous experience and knowledge of others in the Australian bushcraft community. If it’s on sale there then it works, and works well!
The whole concept for Styled Sealed Delivered is based on the concept of a one-stop shop where thry provide a style sheet to guide you, as well as all the elements for the table, so that you can “style” it yourself.
Their collections are combinations of beautiful and bespoke pieces all designed so that they have many applications and can be re-used, built upon and styled by you.

We’re happy to announce that we’ve completed testing of the Fastway Couriers shipping module, and it’s now available in all stores based in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland or South Africa.
To activate it, go to the “Preferences -> Shipping and handling” section of your store’s Toolbox, and click on the “Add a shipping agent” button in the top right of the screen.
You’ll need to click the “Activate” button under Fastway, and then choose which services you’d like to offer to your customers. Whether or not you’re entitled to the Frequent User Rate depends on your account standing with Fastway, so you’ll most likely want to contact them to either set up an account or find out if you’re eligible.
After you’ve activated the Fastway shipping agent, you’ll the need to add a weight based shipping rate for Fastway. Further instructions on how to do this are located in our knowledge base.
We’re always on the lookout for more options for our store owners to accept payments online. Last week we integrated the Fat Zebra payment gateway into Spiffy Stores, which is now available to all online stores in Australia.
This week, we’re pleased to announce that we’ve joined forces with the Card Access Services payment gateway to provide real-time payment processing.
This means that you now have even more options for accepting credit card payments directly in your online store.
Our current direct payment gateways available to e-commerce stores in Australia are:
We’re pleased to announce that Spiffy Stores now supports the Fat Zebra payment gateway for accepting credit cards in your e-commerce shop.
Fat Zebra is easy to set up, and has some of the lowest fees in Australia, at just 40¢ per transaction… dropping down to 18¢ on their larger plans.
Setting up a payment gateway on your website can be time consuming and costly, with some startups spending in excess of $6000 just to have something live… let alone actually covering the costs with sales.
Fat Zebra charge on average around $220 per year, and take a flat rate from each transaction. This combined with the assistance they will provide you in setting up your account, along with the ease of integrating the gateway into your Spiffy Store makes their payment gateway one of the best value for money solutions available for accepting payments online in Australia.
When it comes to systems like PayPal, one of the major issues a lot of small businesses and startups have is that they are cash flow poor, this means that waiting up to three days for money to land in an account can have a negative impact on the business. Most payments processed by Fat Zebra will appear in your merchant account by the following business day.
At The Possible Co. they believe it is possible to always shop nice – nice for people, nice for animals and nice for the planet. Shopping nice doesn’t mean sacrificing creativity, adventure or design however…
All of their products have been specifically sourced from companies that work hard to ensure neither animals, humans or the environment are harmed in the making of their products.
Google recently announced a new e-commerce certification program called “Trusted Stores”, where stores that go through an approval process with Google will be allowed to add a “Google Trusted Store” badge to their online store.
Google intends for the trusted store badge to give consumers a boost of confidence when shopping online, and it comes with a $1,000 guarantee to cover the purchase… which should really help to increase sales in your online store when the program is up and running.
The way it works is when a visitor to your online store hovers their mouse over the trusted stores badge, a live “report card” type tooltip will pop up. Easy to understand grades like A+, A, B and C are awarded for quality of service features like customer service and fast or reliable shipping.
Right now it’s just a pilot program with a limited number of retailers, but all Spiffy Stores owners can apply to participate by filling out this form. There’s no guarantee that Google will accept your application… as it’s currently only in Beta, and you’ll need a great history of reliable shipping and great customer service for them to even consider your application.
