Our story

It's been hard work but a lot of fun

Shopstar was born out of a desire to support creative entrepreneurs use technology to not only reach a larger market, but re-imagine and re-create the markets they need.

E-commerce (Electronic commerce ) is a term for any type of business, or commercial transaction, that involves the transfer of information across the internet.

So in today’s world where everything is being connected via the internet commerce and e-commerce are one and the same – or at least – they should be.

Our platform brings online shopping, point of sale and the power of being part of a strong eco-system together and delivers immediate results.

Since our launch in September 2013, our stores have done many millions of ZAR worth in transactions. Using what we have learnt we continue to develop and enhance Shopstar.

It is our vision to help thousands of SMEs transact more in the online space. It is our mission to continue to develop and enhance technology which optimises they way they do this.
