The South African eCommerce Conference is being held at the Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg, on September 11, 2013.
Speakers from Google, Bidorbuy, Mxit and PayFast are expected to contribute to the conference organised by uAfrica.com.
“We are very excited about the conference and the awards this year. We want to share our knowledge and learn from other leaders in the field,” said Andy Higgins, managing director of uAfrica.com
The award categories are South Africa’s Favourite eCommerce Website, Best eCommerce Website, Best eCommerce Mobile Website, Best Website Usability, Best Shopping Process and Best Customer Service.
Higgins added: “We have changed the format slightly this year in order to narrow down the criteria to focus on the true essence of eCommerce.
“Strictly speaking, that is, any South African based company that facilitates the buying or selling of products via the internet including ordering, electronic payment and delivery thereof.”
