Like a knight striding into the dragon’s lair. Like the cavalry arriving at full gallop. Like an army of ants on the march (sort of). PriceCheck is here to crusade on your behalf. No longer do you have to schlep all over the Internet to find the best deals. We’ve done that all for you. That’s why we’re South Africa’s number one shopping comparison website.
We’ve gathered together thousands of books, DVDs, electronics, games, cameras, music, and more. All you have to do is type in whatever it is you’re looking for, and Hey Presto! We’ll show you all the online retailers that sell it, and how much they’re charging for it. Then it’s up to you.
You can compare prices, read product and retailer reviews, or charge directly to the checkout page, knowing that you found the best deal on the Net. Like shooting fish in a barrel.
And don’t think you’re going to find any old Joe on PriceCheck. We only deal with the shops that are committed to bringing you the best products and prices. So you can relax in your slacks knowing that whatever you’ve ordered is on its way safely to your door, whether you’re in Camps Bay or Tweebuffelsmeteenskootmorsdoodgeskietfontein.
How it all began.
PriceCheck was thought up in 2006 by local Internet brainiac, Kevin Tucker. He knew that with more and more South Africans wising up to the advantages of online shopping, a price comparison website would be just the ticket.
He began to create a place that brought bargain hunters to within clicking distance of the retailers who could offer them the best deals. It wasn’t long before retailers also saw the advantages. By becoming part of PriceCheck they could ensure that their products were being seen by thousands of new buyers.
So everybody wins. And we quite like that.
PriceCheck is owned by MIH Internet Africa, a part of the Naspers Group. We’re based in Cape Town, South Africa and our sister companies include bondfaro.com.br and buscape.com.br, the largest comparison sites in Latin America.
