E-commerce, or electronic commerce, refers to transactions conducted via the internet. Although selling online is still in its infancy in South Africa, with our strong mobile penetration and improving web infrastructure, it is rapidly growing.
Over a five-year period, Euromonitor projects that South African retail should grow at steady rates both in stores and online; but online growth will be much more rapid. Now, throw in a pandemic (thanks 2020!) and the fire is lit for even faster and more substantial growth in online business. Even before the effects of Covid-19, Statista Market Forecast projected that 2020 would be a key year for South African online sales, with expectations of the market hitting R60 billion in sales. Your business must be positioned to take advantage of this and there is no better time!
