    Local e-commerce startup Affordable Choice launches competition

    Stellenbosch-based e-commerce startup Affordable Choice has launched a competition to promote the opening of its online shop where a tablet PC to the value of R3000 can be won.

    In addition, the company has created a coupon especially for Bandwidth Blog that entitles readers to a 20% discount on checkout.

    Affordable Choice sources a variety of quality products including smartphones, tablets, torches and laser pointers directly from suppliers to provide consumers with the best prices available.

    Affordable Choice originated primarily as a result of an observation that founder Ryan Blake made while speaking to friends about how expensive products seem to be in South Africa, especially electronics.

    “If you go anywhere else in the world then most electronic items are way cheaper than what they are here,” says Blake. “So I came up with a plan to get quality goods to consumers in South Africa by allowing them to bypass the big overheads required to run retail outlets and so allowing them to save.”

    Affordable Choice sources products from companies that might not be as well known by consumers but yet still produce quality products and then brings these products directly to the consumers at an affordable price.


    Every item, that comes with a one year guarantee, is screened before being listed and customers are entitled to a 30 day money back guarantee if it arrives damaged. For orders above R1000 delivery is free.

    With a focus on bringing consumers high quality products over quantity, the portfolio remains small and will continue to expand over time.

    To enter the competition you need to like the Affordable Choice Facebook page and then submit your details.

    According to Blake, “We are also tracking who shares it the most and they will get preference when we do our draw.”

    Bandwidth Blog readers can redeem their 20% discount by entering the following coupon code on checkout: bandwidthblog321
