Rural portal RD1.com has opened its doors to the general rural population.
Potential customers require an account with RD1.com or any AnchorMart store, and can email details or complete the registration process over the phone. Online registration will become available during the next fortnight.
RD1.com chief executive Neal Murphy says the company is considering electronic account and payment options.
RD1.com claims more than 8000 registered users, to date mostly farmers. Its online store has an inventory of around 6000 products, growing by around 150 items a week
