About the award

The Online Retail Awards are international, impartial, independent business awards that can be won by online retailers of any size anywhere in the world. The aim of the Online Retail Awards is to seek out examples of retailers' websites that offer great online shopping experiences for customers and to reward them publicly.

This award is a fantastic achievement. ORA Judges commented, “If the results for 2011/12 are anything to go by, 2012/13 should be outstanding. Another shining example of building a site round the user experience.” See ORA results and comments.
