Takealot.com is trying out a new service called TakealotNow, an on-demand option that will deliver within an hour.
The TakealotNow service is presently accessible in Cape Town’s northern suburbs, including Durbanville, Bellville, Brackenfell, Kraaifontein, Kuilsriver, and Parow, with intentions to expand to more areas.
The service offers a special selection of stuff, like laptops, smartphones, beauty stuff, and toys.
This new service is accessible through the Mr D app, offering deliveries until 10pm at night.
“Online shoppers in South Africa are growing increasingly used to quick turnarounds on delivery for products like groceries and we’ve seen a steady increase in sales in certain categories when we offer our popular same-day, next-day delivery or collection options,” says Frederik Zietsman, CEO at takealot.com, a Takealot Group company.
