Andy Higgins – The ecommerce pioneer who now runs uAfrica

Andy Higgins is one of South Africa’s most successful ecommerce entrepreneurs – he started Bidorbuy, helped to launch Takealot and PayFast, and is now making online shopping easier through uAfrica.

Although Higgins entered the ecommerce space at a young age as a technical developer at QXL (now Tradus), it was not his first job.

After completing an electronic engineering degree at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, he worked as an engineer on a 175ft private super yacht sailing around North America and the Caribbean.
How bizarre, I sat next to one on my flight from Jhb to NYC. Not a life at all. Those yacht owners get their pound of flesh for sure. No personal life whatsoever when you're on deck.
