The ‘Amazon effect’ | What does it mean for South African e-commerce?


The ‘Amazon effect’ is expected to significantly impact South African e-commerce by driving increased competition and innovation in the market as well as consumer expectations for faster delivery, wider product selections and enhanced convenience. 

As Amazon expands its presence in the country, local e-commerce players will be compelled to enhance their offerings, improve delivery and logistics, and provide competitive pricing, ultimately benefiting consumers with more choices and improved services. 

The increased competition, however, may pose challenges for smaller, local e-commerce businesses in terms of market share and profitability, making adaptability and differentiation crucial for their survival.
