We are an online retailer that specializes in hardware and software. We have been operating for just under 6 months and boast a wide, ever-expanding range of products. Firstshop is driven and determined to be the best retailer in Eswatini.
All of this wouldn’t be possible without the expertise of Technosol, the parent company of Firstshop. Technosol has been in existence since the year 2000, with other 18 years of expertise in the ICT industry they are the most suitable candidates to help usher in this innovation of online shopping in Eswatini. As mentioned earlier Technosol is a holding company, apart from Firstshop the other company under Technosol is Got Game. Got Game specializes in construction and has a new innovative product called Green Crete that will change the way construction is done in the Kingdom.
EXAMPLES OF ONLINE PLATFORMS
The concept of online shopping has been around for over 20 years but it is a relatively new concept in the Kingdom of Eswatini. One of the most famous pioneers of online shopping is Amazon led by none other than the great visionary Jeff Bazos. Recently Amazon made headlines for being the first company to hit the $1 trillion mark in company value. Absolutely staggering and pretty much says it all about the potential of online shopping. It is the present as well as the future! Other famous examples are eBay, one of its early founders is none other than the present owner of Tesla, Elon Musk. In Asia, more specifically China, Alibaba has the majority of the share with their unique business model that allows people to sell via the website. Amazon also has that affiliation feature but the main difference is that Alibaba doesn’t have any warehouses or owns any stock.
PROCESS OF BUYING ONLINE
The process of buying online is very straightforward. Register an account with the website, select the items you want to buy, when satisfied with your balance and selection press buy/checkout. The amount of time it will take to get the product to your doorstep will depend on the courier service and the availability of the product. In terms of Firstshop, if you are in Mbabane or Manzini you can get your product delivered to you the next day provided you ordered before 10 a.m.
ADVANTAGES OF ONLINE SHOPPING
§ CONVENIENCE – You can sit at home and order a product which will be delivered to your doorstep the following day.
§ REDUCED TRANSPORT COST – Since the product is coming to you then it simply means you do not have to travel to a store.
§ SAFER – When shopping online you have the option of buying using your credit card or using EFT and all of this is done at home, meaning that you do not have to carry cash around.
§ GIFTS – You can now send gifts to relatives anywhere in the kingdom provided you give us their physical address.
§ DISCOUNTS AND SPECIALS – When opening an account, one requirement is a valid email address. The email address is used to send you all the latest specials and discounts the platforms offer, so you know about specials before most people.
§ CENTRALIZED – Since the retailer, Firstshop, is online they are ‘centralized’ which allows them to provide the same product to everyone regardless of where they are located. Certain brick and mortar retailers have branches in certain areas, especially the smaller towns, where they do not stock every product they offer. This problem is solved when you are selling online because every product is available regardless of where you are in the country.
