10 tips for shopping online


Many people worldwide have had to adapt to the “new normal” as Covid19 took the world by storm. Ten years ago, the majority of South Africans did not have access to the internet and the trust in online shopping was low. These days times have changed and there has been a steady growth in online sales year to year. By 2023, it is estimated that total retail sales will hit more than $6.5 trillion worldwide, on which more than one in every five dollars spent (22 percent) will be carried out online.


Online shopping gives you the convenience of shopping from the comfort of your mobile phone or computer device.
