And the best ecommerce services platform prize goes to …bidorbuy!
This is the second consecutive year that bidorbuy has won this award at the prestigious uAfrica.com annual ecommerce event.
In previous years, uAfrica presented the ecommerce awards at an industry conference. For its 2015 tenth anniversary, the awards event was given its very own, separate ceremony, complete with the suspense-filled pause before the winners were announced and the fanfares immediately after they were announced.
A month ago, in August, the organiser of the 2015 eCommerce Awards, uAfrica, revealed the top 50 ecommerce players, chosen from about 200 entrants. Then the select circle was narrowed down to 30 finalists. And during the ceremony held on 16 September, seven online shopping businesses were recognised, among them bidorbuy. Awards were also given to individuals: an Achievement Award and a Best Female Entrepreneur Award.
In the words of the organiser, uAfrica, the ecommerce awards are designed to recognise and reward South African websites that have demonstrated excellence in their use of the internet as a platform for ecommerce. The awards are open to South African based companies that facilitates the buying or selling of products via the internet, including the ordering and electronic payment.
The Best eCommerce Services Platform Award that bidorbuy won is given to an online platform that makes it possible for buyers and sellers to trade, a service that bidorbuy has been providing for 16 years now.
