One of the first e-commerce stores to take online shopping to a whole new level in South Africa, Takealot.com has come a long way. Since the big blue dot’s merger with  Kalahari.net in 2015, it has introduced online shopping to the masses in a groundbreaking manner. For added convenience, we recommend you download the mobile app from which you can take advantage of application-exclusive deals and Blue Dot Sales. Whether you’re in the market for a brand-new band saw or a flamingo pool inflatable, there’s something for everyone. To boot, Takealot.com is known for its client service and if you don’t dig your order, you can send it back.

Pick n Pay

All Pick n Pay Smartshopper cardholders qualify for online shopping. That means you won’t have to step foot into a grocery store again. With safe and secure shopping, you can have everything from tea bags to tea towels delivered to your front door. The catch? At the moment Pick n Pay doesn’t deliver to all areas but you can order and pay online and then do an in-store collection. An added bonus is that you can follow suggested shopping lists, ensuring you don’t forget to order certain items… such as toilet paper.
