South Africa’s online shops of choice for IT professionals

MyBroadband recently ran an online shopping survey, asking South Africa’s IT community which online stores they frequently use.

The survey was completed by 1,583 IT professionals and tech-savvy consumers, with a strong knowledge of the local e-commerce market.

The results showed that Takealot was the most popular store, followed by Makro Online, and Loot.
