Our Vision

A circular economy, making second-hand first in Australia!


As passionate op shoppers, we understand that the places we visit have the most amazing range of clothing, furniture and household items which, although pre-loved, are high quality, and have stood the test of time.

We believe OpHop is not only going to bring excitement and efficiency, but also make choosing second-hand as a utility for your everyday needs much more accessible to all Aussie's, allowing the consumer to find and navigate to stores using optimised routing, and know which stores have the categories of goods they seek, in addition to assisting those in need to find the stores that offer support, all while allowing you to track where you've been, where you're going, what you bought, and allowing communication with other op shoppers and stores. 

There is simply too much waste generated in this country due to cheaply made and imported products, which contain built-in obsolescence. The company manufacturing and distributing them is incentivised to operate this way, so they can maximise their profits. We are beyond thrilled to be bringing you the OpHop app, which will revolutionise the way we op shop, and ultimately drive more funding to the organisations that run the stores, enabling them to provide a greater level of assistance to those individuals and communities in need.

OpHop and Away! 


Our Mission

Provide a centralised and full featured directory listing, navigation, and social marketplace platform for charity stores, their organisations, and customers, to help them connect and collaborate more effectively.

By providing a centralised platform for all parties, the stores, and their organisations have a chance to get their message out in a more cohesive and dynamic way, improving the overall experience of learning about those stores, for the customer, making the option to purchase second-hand easier, ultimately helping lead more foot traffic to those stores.
