Guzzle is South Africa’s number one go-to website for price comparisons in bricks-and-mortar stores. The website focus only on products that are currently on Special. In this article, you will learn about what is Guzzle and how it works in South Africa.
What is Guzzle?
Guzzle is an aggregation portal with paper and digital catalogues from big retailers in South Africa. Guzzle was founded in May 2011 by Ric Meulemans and Oliver Bryant. Its headquarters are in Cape Town, South Africa.
How Does Guzzle Work?
Guzzle captures 20 000 products on special that expire every week and then start all over again. The website displays catalogues from various major South African retailers to make it easier for buyers to discover which store has the best price on a particular product. It’s now easy to find out which retail store in South Africa has the best deal on Groceries, Washing Machine, Fridge, TV or Laptop. They differ from general price comparison websites, because they focus only on products that are currently on Special or Promotion, with a start and an end date. Using Guzzle to compare prices also help customers save time and money.
Guzzle South Africa does not get involved in the actual transaction process. Rather, they just let shoppers know exactly which retailer they should visit to get what they are looking for. You can search for products by type and supplier.
“The website automatically determines your location and shows you deals within a certain radius. This way, the website is able to show you the most relevant deals by ensuring that you only see specials where there is retail presence near you” – guzzle.co.za states on their website.
