If you've got a half-decent internet connection in an area with wifi coverage, you can shop forever - and for everything you might possibly want no matter what the occasion. Is your internet connection not what

it should be? Get in touch with us and how we can help you get the best internet connection.

Wish seemed like the big thing a few years ago, but now that it’s some time later a bunch of South Africans haven’t gotten what they ordered and it’s time to accept that there are better ways to the world of e-Commerce - and much better sites out there.

I have never had a successful order with them.. Tried three times and each time it was a failure did get my money back but not a good experience. The S.A rep is really helpful though.

Below we have  collected some of the best local e-commerce websites for browsing around, whether you’re looking to go online and order all of your food or some of your stuff.

Here’s where you should be buying instead.


Tech, Clothes And Everything In Between

Looking to do some online shopping with your new fast and cheap  internet connection ? Here’s where you can find the best of the best when it comes to fashion, flowers, electronics or other weird gadgets that you just have to own.



Zando is where online shoppers go when they’re looking for the best deals on fashion and clothing - and they’ve got a huge selection of things that make for the perfect gifts.



Need flowers in a hurry? (At some point, everyone will!) You can get yours from NetFlorist. They deliver your items the same day to most places in South Africa, and they sell a lot more than just flowers now.


Bid or Buy

Bid or Buy has turned into a website that’s more retailer than auctioneer, but it’s still worth checking out just for the fact that they sell everything you could think of and more. Browse around and you’ll still find some great deals.

They’re on this list because they sell literally everything from books through to the latest tech.

Takealot is one of the best places for all-round deals, and you can

even track down great deals on things like great wi-fi  and fibre

routers. Looking to expand that wi-fi coverage ?


Loot is another e-commerce website that works a lot like Takealot an Amazon, and you can find pretty much anything on here from books through to stationery.



Superbalist is another website that’s made for fashion, and it’s one of the largest fashion e-commerce sites used by South Africans right now with great quality products guaranteed.



If you’re looking to stock up your kitchen with everything your kitchen needs (plus a few gadgets that you’re not sure what they do until you Google it), Yuppiechef will likely have it for sale.


Looking for munchies? Here are the best places in SA to order snacks and food online.


Order In

Order In is one of South Africa’s foremost food sites, and you can get your food to you in no time from their website or app. For now, they only serve Cape Town and Johannesburg – but they might put Durban on the map soon. They really are brilliant !


Mr D Food

Mr D Food is what became of Mr Delivery, and providing that you’re located in one of the main city areas of SA, you should be able to order a variety of different food options through Mr D Food by using either their website or app.


Debonairs Pizza

There are some types of cravings that only pizza will satisfy, and for that one of the best options out there is Debonairs Pizza; they still have a guarantee that they’ll deliver fast – and they do.



Steers is another South African restaurant to join the line of ones offering delivery and an easy online ordering process – log in and find out if you have a Steers near you. They actually have surprisingly good ribs - I get this way to often  !



FitChef is a great online website for ordering your food in advance, and they’ve got great meal packages that can last you for an entire month, a few weeks or just a few days - and yes, you can order samples of the products and meals from the website, too.


Uber Eats

Uber is a company that does far more than just drive people from one point to another. They also offer food delivery – and you can find most things you’d want to eat in your area through Uber if you don’t find it anywhere else. Beware



Woolworths remains one of the premier options for ordering your food and your stuff online, and all you have to do to order is set up your online profile and choose your stuff – they’ll have it to you in just a few days.
