We have about two million unique users every month and over a year we have about 17 million South Africans using our services.

He explains how te trends change according to seasons.

We are seeing a different dynamic in the searches. What we saw around September was a depressing trend where there was less volume, less interest and decrease in searches.

Kevin Tucker, Founder - PriceCheck

During load shedding, we saw a lot of trends towards solar products and generators and during the water crisis in Cape Town, we saw a lot of trends towards JoJo tanks.

Kevin Tucker, Founder - PriceCheck

Tucker says they have recorded a 200% increase in volumes from yesterday.

What we see around this time of the year is a lot of toys and gifts, hoverboards and some back-to-school products and we see a lot of volume for TV and air conditioners this week leading to Black Friday.

Kevin Tucker, Founder - PriceCheck

The best deals will be on Friday and the trick is to stay awake because most products will be sold out by 2am.
