Many local e-commerce shops like Takealot, OneDayOnly, Loot, BidorBuy, and Dion Wired offer South Africans “big discounts” on products.
These daily and weekly offers are popular among many South African online shoppers – mainly because of the promised savings on the products.
But are they really offering the best price? MyBroadband set out to test if these deals meet expectations.
What we found is that South Africans can feel confident in online shopping deals from major players – their prices generally are the lowest, as advertised.
However, users are advised to scrutinize the discounts which the shops offer – the original retail price is often lower than the price which the shops show.
