Since the announcement of the Top 40 websites in the 2011 South African E-Commerce Awards last month, Jump Shopping has been evaluating these sites to determine the Top 20 for the third and final round of the awards. The evaluations covered Design, Standards & Ease of use, Mobile, Social Networking and Public Voting. Jump Shopping outsourced the Design (Look and Feel) Evaluations to an independent design company.
The Top 20 are:
- Bid or Buy
- Groupon My City Deal
- Leisure Books
- Look and Listen
- Private Property
- Simplicity Online
- Travel Ground
Jump Shopping will be ordering from the Top 20 websites under pseudo names to evaluate the ordering process and customer service. The evaluations conducted in Round 2 and 3 will determine the winners in the 2011 South African E-Commerce Awards.
The categories are:
• The Public’s Favourite E-Commerce Website
• Best E-Commerce Store
• Best E-Commerce Services Website
• Best Group Buying Website
• Best Design, Standards & Ease of use
• Best Shopping Process
The Awards will close on 31 October 2011 and the winners will be announced on 7 November 2011. The winners will be announced with the two runners up in each category.
