South African ecommerce booming

The South African ecommerce market is a hive of activity with acquisitions, new launches, and millions flowing to fintech businesses.

2020 was a watershed year for ecommerce in South Africa. After a steady start, the COVID-19 pandemic brought online shopping to a near standstill because of lockdown regulations.

Online retailers were prohibited from selling most products despite the increased safety associated with ecommerce.

Not just the big guys, our turnover went up 50% last year even with the initial shenanigans of hard lockdown.
