Who are we?

Six years ago, three guys decided to start an online business. Armed with no more than a few hundred dollars between them - and a vision about the future of online retail- the trio put together a website selling books and began fulfilling orders out of their living room.

As their reputation for fast delivery, low prices and an unmatched range of titles grew, so did their business. is one of the few truly trans-Tasman online enterprises - spanning two warehouses, dozens of staff and multiple distribution centres dotted around the globe. Though The Nile remains a popular Australian bookseller, the business has also expanded into a range of new product departments including DVDs, baby products, toys, wine and games with further expansion in the pipeline.
