This page provides links and information for digital service provider (DSP) consultations in regard to the Software developers technical working group (SwD TWG) formerly known as eCommerce Software developers technical working group (eCommerce SwD TWG).


The eCommerce SwD TWG was formed on 10 September 2013 initially for the transition of ELS2SBR. Through natural evolution it became the SwD TWG for information sharing, discussion of options and decisions for a united approach between the ATO and SwD community for all service delivery via the eCommerce platform.

The SwD TWG discussed and resolved messaging design issues in the context of the eCommerce platform wholesale service interactions where there was a material impact on SwDs.
