The Daily Sale Shop, owned by Bulawayo-based entrepreneur Kuda Manzanga has taken online shopping by storm.
Running on the website, www.theweekendsale.shop, The Daily Sale Shop is one of the largest online shops in Zimbabwe with over 10 000 products across a wide range of commodities.
It was launched in November 2020 and specialises in electronic products like television sets, cellphones and associated accessories, computers, laptops and also groceries among many other items.
Manzanga, who was motivated by a friend to start the online shop told Nhau/Indaba that all he wanted was to solve people’s day-to-day problems.
“Whenever you launch something, you want to solve a problem. In South Africa, for instance, on month-ends there are always special offers. We said let’s establish a store where every weekend there are special offers. If something was $20, the price drops to $14 at the weekend. We deliver anything that you buy, you get it the next day anywhere in Zimbabwe,” he said.
“If you are in the United Kingdom and want to send your loved ones a TV set, all you do is go to our platform and buy the TV and state the address where the TV should go and leave it to us. The TV will arrive.”
Daily Sale Shop is working with Direct Pay Online (DPO), the largest payment gateway in Africa. It has also partnered with FedEx, which is why they are able to do countrywide deliveries.
“We do deliveries nationwide for free. The price that the client sees on our website is the final price the client will pay. For customer convenience we also allow payment on delivery as an option or clients can pay online and check out online,” said Munzanga.
“We are receiving a lot of orders and we are grateful because our clients are so understanding as sometimes the system can get slightly overwhelmed especially during moth-end. Our system can absorb 300 orders a day and sometimes we can receive more than this at which point the system automatically pushes the order forward to the next day.”
He said although Covid-19 had affected their business, the shop is still striving to satisfy all customers.
“Covid-19 did have an impact in terms of movement and deliveries as we had to stop doing deliveries by 3pm whereas some clients can only receive parcels after 5pm. But we are grateful clients were always so supportive during this period,” he said. Nhau/Indaba
