Sydney, NSW / 28 October 2010 -- Webu, Australia's largest online shopping mall opens for

business today featuring thousands of Australian online retailers in over 270 shopping

categories. With an innovative shopping mall format, Webu (www.webu.com.au) enables

online shoppers and consumers to browse and buy beyond their primary search category,

just like a retail shopping centre.

"Webu helps Australia's retailers, both large and small, tap into Australia's booming local

and global online consumer market," notes Steve Allen, Founder of Webu. The eCommerce

market in Australia is booming, forecasted to reach $33.8 billion by 2012, up from $24

billion last year (Forrester Research, 2010).

Online shoppers at Webu can search by category, keyword, product, or store name. They

will also be able to read the reviews of other shoppers, find discount coupons and

promotions, and write their own product and store reviews. Another unique feature is that

consumers can create their own virtual mall featuring their favourite shops.

"With Webu, social networking is integrated with online shopping, making the shopper's

experience more interactive," adds Steve Allen.  By subscribing, shoppers can also keep up-

to-date on new product promotions by the listed Webu retailers, hear of newly added

shops, and receive category specific update newsletters detailing offers from retailers

offering their favourite products and accessories.

"Over 80% of Internet users find what they are looking for by using a directory or search

engine," notes Steve Allen.  "This can be a tedious process as each search returns thousands

of links, with only a few having meaningful value to the consumer. At Webu, shoppers start

their product search in an online environment that directly links them to thousands of

Australian retailers. From today, Australia's converted and committed consumers who love

to shop on line can simply Webu it."

"We expect to be adding a considerable number of new shoppers and advertisers from

across Australia on a daily basis," concludes Steve Allen, "as Webu becomes known as the

new, essential resource for online shoppers in Australia."
