Online shopping tech prices – Takealot vs Loot

Online shopping has matured in South Africa, with many Internet users opting to purchase products online rather than visit a brick-and-mortar store.

World Wide Worx’s Online Retail in South Africa 2016 report shows that online retail has maintained a growth rate of above 20% since the turn of the century.

When it comes to technology products, consumers are spoiled for choice. Many local online shops like Takealot, Loot, Raru, and Wootware offer a wide range of gadgets and computing products.

Many international retailers, including Amazon, also ship to South Africa – which is often a popular choice for tech consumers.
