What is Vendo?

Vendo is an online shopping marketplace based in Auckland, New Zealand. Businesses can list products directly on Vendo, or import products from their existing online store and allow customers to click through to their website to purchase.

Who is Vendo?

Vendo was created in 2003 by Jason Morehouse (programming, Canada) and Sean Naden (design, Auckland).

Jason Morehouse is the Co-founder and CEO of Checkfront, a powerful cloud online booking & e-commerce platform used by thousands of businesses in over 128 countries.

Sean is currently the sole designer/developer working on Vendo full time. Sean is based in Pukekohe, Auckland, New Zealand.

What technology do we use?

Vendo is written in PHP, using MySQL and SQLite databases, hosted by Sitehost in Auckland, on Apache web servers running a Debian distribution of the Linux operating system. Some translations powered by Yandex.Translate

Our search engine Vendobot visits your website every now and then to scan your available products, this is usually done overnight between 1am and 5am, and we try to keep the "hits" to a minimum. You can also set up a data feed in XML or CSV. If you're unsure about how to set up a direct feed you can contact Sean by phone or email and he will help you get set up.

How do I delete my account?

1. Log in at www.vendo.co.nz/login/

How do I remove my store?
