E-commerce is the buying and selling of goods and services over the internet. It has become a vital part of the modern economy, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has disrupted traditional retail and accelerated the adoption of online shopping.
South Africa is one of the fastest-growing e-commerce markets in Africa and the world. According to a report by Deloitte, South African online sales increased by 66% from 2019 to 2020 to more than $1.8 billion (ZAR30 billion). The top e-commerce product category in South Africa behind data and airtime is clothing and apparel followed by online entertainment. Groceries saw an increase of 54 percent from 2019, driven by the pandemic and lockdown restrictions.
The report also predicts that the South African e-commerce market will reach more than $4 billion (ZAR67 billion) by 2025, with more than 1 billion transactions per annum. This represents a huge opportunity for businesses to tap into the growing demand for online shopping and expand their customer base beyond their physical location.
