africa’s leading internet platform Goes Live: South Africa’s Full-Range Non-Prescription Pharmacy E-Commerce Site

5 June 2013, South Africa’s first independent online store offering a full range of non-prescription pharmacy products has recently gone live with its interactive website featuring a comprehensive range of practical consumer healthcare products from vitamins and diet pills to personal grooming and infant care. The new website uses the latest technology to offer savvy consumers a hassle-free, online shopping experience with access to big brands like Dove, Colgate, Nivea and Cepacol amongst many others.
With thousands of products to choose from, ranging from personal essentials to self-medication and supplements, free delivery across the country on orders over R500 and great prices, is well positioned to bring consumers a fresh and convenient way to shop.

CEO Paul Cook, previously at McKinsey & Company, said, “The consumer healthcare market (in Africa) is booming and we are excited about giving everyone access to great healthcare products at the best prices.”

The online venture is financed by Silvertree Capital. Founding Partner Manuel Koser, founder of Zando and Jumia e-commerce websites, said, “We are excited about the growth of e-commerce in both South Africa and the rest of Africa, and the motivated team is encouraging us to expand our vision.”
