Online shopping safety

“We’ve always aimed to offer a customer-centric online experience that takes the queueing and hassle of in-store shopping out of Black Friday and festive shopping, and this year is no different. The fact that we’re an online retailer is more important than ever as the world adjusts to social distancing protocols. This positions e-commerce as the safest, most convenient way to shop this festive season,” says Julie-Anne Walsh, chief marketing officer at Takealot.com.

“E-commerce has never been as relevant to consumers as it is now. The convenience and safety of shopping online has seen a huge increase in the adoption of e-commerce around the country. We appreciate that this – combined with a month-long focus on the best deals – will fundamentally redefine the retail landscape for shoppers, by giving them a better way to shop,” Walsh concludes.
