Octer is one of the hottest start-ups in the mobile technology space. We have one ambition:

To make online shopping simple.

In March 2014 investors backed this vision to the tune of $1m in 24hrs on the crowdfunding site, Seedrs. We followed up with a similar round in the summer of 2015.

With this backing and our drive and determination we are making it simpler for consumers to get what they want, and simpler for big retailers to find their new customers. We have an awesome team, work in a fun environment and are tackling the biggest issues in shopping which affect hundreds of millions of consumers.
