November 27, 2019: With Black Friday only days away, DHL Africa eShop is offering access to international brands for shoppers in Sub-Saharan Africa. Since its initial introduction in April this year, the DHL Africa eShop app has seen its user base grow rapidly, and within the first three months of operation, it had already been rolled out to 34 countries across Sub-Saharan Africa.
Orders are fulfilled by DHL Express, guaranteeing reliable and on-time deliveries.
Hennie Heymans, CEO of DHL Express Sub-Saharan Africa, explained, “The DHL Africa eShop enables African customers to shop directly from over 200 highly sought after the US- and UK-based online retailers, with purchases delivered to their door, by DHL Express.”
Black Friday originated in the US and has fast become known as the start of the famous sales weekend following Thanksgiving Day, with brands offering unprecedented deals and discounts to shoppers.
“African consumers have direct access to the season’s hottest deals on stores such as Amazon, Macy’s and Next to name a few, with a huge variety of products on offer, from clothing to electronics, consumer products and a host of products in between. It’s our aim to connect African shoppers to some of the best Black Friday deals on the continent,” added Heymans.
“We’ve already seen a large surge in app downloads and orders in the build-up to Black Friday, and with a number of stores already offering pre-Black Friday deals. Given the high volume of online shopping traffic over this period, it is important to be assured that your online order is being shipped by a reliable service provider. Africa eShop gives you that peace of mind, as all deliveries are handled by DHL. We are extremely passionate about driving e-commerce growth and adoption on the continent and our DHL Africa eShop app is perfectly positioned to increase access to exciting global brands,” concluded Heymans.
