Online shopping is growing, and fast. Recent research revealed that SA e-commerce grew by a whopping 66% in 2020, reaching R30,2 billion.

Thanks in part to the pandemic, South Africans from all walks of life took to their phones and laptops in search of the products and services they could no longer access ‘offline’.

Our love affair with e-commerce has only just begun.

While the pandemic may have accelerated the growth of online retail, the current trajectory shows no sign of slowing down. And SA entrepreneurs are making bank because of it.

Website-building software like Shopstar is empowering businesses big and small in the online space.

Reasons to choose Shopstar:

Proudly South African and based in the Mother City, Shopstar has several advantages over its overseas competitors. Including the fact that you’re able to access the help you need when you need it instead of having to wait for the sun to rise in the USA.

Another plus? Shopstar understands that doing business online in SA presents unique challenges like load shedding. (Better yet, they know how to help you get back on your feet).
