The South African ecommerce market is becoming increasingly competitive with all the biggest retailers growing their online presence.
JD Group launched Everyshop, Ackermans launched a new connect tech store, and Mr Price Group bolstered its online presence by buying Yuppiechef.
Most online shops offer easy-to-use interfaces and good logistics, which means it comes down to price to attract customers.
Everyshop marketing executive Stef Michael said they were well aware that competitive pricing is important to gain and maintain customers.
To ensure they are competitive, Everyshop will have weekly promotions with discounts on popular products.
Most other shops are doing the same with daily or weekly deals, special promotions, and clearance sales.
Loot recently launched its Orange Autumn Clearance Sale with up to 75% off merchandise across various categories.
Loot CEO Greg Le Roux said while many sale items are end of runs, there are also bestsellers which were kept in reserve for this promotion as a “special treat”.
Not to be outdone, Takealot has a “Clearance Shop” which offers consumers up to 50% off a wide range of products.
Takealot’s clearance sale has big price cuts on smartphones, tablets, computer products, TVs, and other tech.
