Click Frenzy: The Main Event will take place from 24-26 October with discounts and special offers of up to 99%. 

This annual shopping extravaganza has taken the Australian retail scene by storm since its inception in 2012. Now in its 11th year, it shows no signs of slowing down. As more and more Australian shoppers look out for cheaper alternatives, sale events, such as Click Frenzy, will continue to drive online purchases. 


Website traffic surge

One of the most remarkable statistics associated with Click Frenzy is the phenomenal surge in website traffic. Retailers who participated in last year’s event experienced an incredible 70% increase in website traffic on the first day of the event. This surge is a testament to the event’s popularity and the excitement it generates among shoppers.

Last year, over 500 Australian retailers joined the Click Frenzy, offering over 4,000 deals and discounts across various categories, including fashion, tech, toys, home, and more.
