Well the general consensus on the forum is that Takelot is good. A lot of people like Kalahari. YuppieChef did win an online retailer award a year or two ago. The rest are the only other high profile ones left I suppose (except for Orange with their great prices, great site and horrendous delivery times)In my opinion it was more about the random selection of on-line stores. But hey that's just my opinion so...
+1I find DionWired pretty good. Once I ordered an external hard-drive around 10am. When I arrived at work the following day at 8am, it had already been delivered.
Ed Zachery. So where is the worst? That might be the worst of the best, but definitely not a list of worst online shops. Bad piece of investigative journalism, and I use those words lightly.This article looks like it was written by a teenager for a school project. My rating? 3/10
...and where is Bid or Buy?Poorly researched and written and some of the less known, but with better service than the top brands have not been mentioned:
- Dionwired has excellent after sales service (try and get a return processed by Takealot or Kalahari - especially when it has to go back and forth between them and Rectron)
- Loot has oftentimes the best pricing. Loot dominates in books and especially online arts & crafts
- Raru should not be forgotten it has gained a strong following
- No HomeChoice (you will be surprised - hardly ever heard of but huge customer base)
- No BTGames?
- No Mantality?
TBH, the writer has done a poorly rehashed version of http://www.ecommerceawards.co.za/2014-winners/ and missed most of the important players - just because a company made headlines this past year, does not necessarily mean that it is the best, there are many niche-players which do a fantastic job and hardly ever make the news (or appear on HelloPeter). A true review of an ecommerce site consists of running through a number of test cases (including how the returns- and refund process works) and not just about the website experience.
