The marketplace has experienced growth in the past twelve months, doubling its financial year revenue from $15 million to $35 million and on boarding established retailers such as Shaver Shop and Kitchen Warehouse. Additionally, MyDeal was named Australia’s sixth fastest growing company by The Australian Financial Review’s Fast 100.
In October 2017, MyDeal introduced small business loans offering MyDeal Marketplace Loans to support its existing retailers’ growth.

Most recently it ventured into luxury travel with an exclusive partnership with Ignite Travel Group.
