A passion for collectibles
Our journey began in 2018
After growing up with a love for Anime, Manga, Trading Cards, & collectibles, we re-entered the hobbies as adults and found a huge lack of availability within New Zealand, it was always a challenge to find what we were after. What was available was either expensive or fake. This motivated us to provide the solution: Otakumart! We first launched in October 2018 and have grown in leaps and bounds since.
First stepping stones
A hobbyists determination
We jumped right into stocking product and selling our modest range on local buy & sell site, Trademe. Our customer base grew rapidly and so did our determination. Many of our early customers from Trademe are still with us today! After a steep learning curve we released the first version of our website and have gradually been improving it and releasing new features since. We now have over 40000 products live on our site, a number that increases every day.
Bringing you more & more!
We’re just getting started!
As we keep growing we aim to:
- Open a physical store for hobbyists to visit & facilitating pickups.
- Expand and open more departments.
- Move to a larger, more accessible warehouse so that we’re able to store more, process orders faster and more efficiently, and allow pickups.
We aim to deliver!
