Mobile commerce is the future of product discovery and purchasing in South Africa and now PriceCheck, together with SnapScan and Pargo, provides the ability to find, buy and deliver products from offline product catalogues.
Brick and mortar stores need no longer spend any resources on building websites, choosing payment gateways and delivery partners. Instead, PriceCheck brings together all of these logistics in-house at a fraction of the cost. The biggest benefit of the new offering is its mobile-centric approach, as it puts the power in the hands of the customers.
Shoppers will be able to browse for products from bricks and mortar retailers on PriceCheck’s mobile-optimised catalogues before paying for their chosen products with SnapScan. While completing the SnapScan checkout process, instead of choosing a delivery address, shoppers will be prompted to select a Pargo collection point that is most convenient to them.
South African shoppers still prefer to do their research online before purchasing products offline, and they can now fully step into the mobile arena to find what they need, pay and even decide on the most convenient delivery method
