Is RARU profitable now? There is a lot of talk about ecommerce requiring significant capital and struggling to break even for a few years. Does being a "niche" ecommerce site make this easier and how do you limit costs?

How do you see the role crypto payments are playing in e-commerce evolving in the foreseeable future?

How did you decide to have a dedicated Boards & Games section on Raru?

How do you decide which payments provider (PayFast in Raru's case) to use and which qaulities must they have?

What eCommerce platform is Raru built on? I assume an open source platform similar to a Magento platform?

What advice do you have for any young(ish) wannabe entrepreneurs out there, who have dreams and ideas to start business in tech, business and ecommerce? Any tips maybe?

I say young(ish) because I'm already 30! :p

How much Bitcoin revenue do you see annually, and do you report on it in your financial statements?

Is there anything you would do differently if you had to start another brand new e-commerce store right now in South Africa?
