New integrated digital finance and e-commerce platform launched

Now more than ever during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the enforced lockdowns, online shopping has become an essential part of our daily lives. The convenience is that you don’t have to leave your home. However, not all businesses across Africa have online shops in place to take advantage of this and make it convenient for their customers to shop. On this episode of the iAfrikan BYTES podcast, I am joined by Dr. Thabo Lehlokoe, Executive Chairman of Tafari Capital, a company in South Africa that has recently launched the Tafari App which allows individuals and businesses to set up their online shops and sell to consumers. Dr. Lehlokoe also shares some of the retail trends observed so far in 2020.
