Led by CEO Brad Moran, Citrus provides online retailers and their suppliers a digital advertising tool similar in nature to Amazon’s advertising network that increases product sales from websites while retaining advertising revenues within the Australian retail ecosystem rather than losing it offshore.

Citrus equips retailers to create a new revenue stream and monetise their digital real estate by allowing suppliers to target customers by bidding in a live auction for prime product positioning and banner advertising on retail websites. The innovative Citrus real-time relevancy engine gives consumers a more personalised shopping experience by letting suppliers more accurately predict and satisfy their preferences through prime ad positions and banner placement at the online point of purchase.
