South African online stores – Tech price comparison

Online shopping is a popular alternative to visiting the local mall for many South Africans.

South African e-commerce websites recorded record sales over last year’s festive season, with more people using online services.

Parcelninja CEO Justin Drennan said they delivered 55,000 orders in December 2015, up from 9,500 orders the year before.

Online stores are particularly popular among tech-savvy shoppers, especially those buying PC components and gadgets.
