In celebration of #eCommerceDay2021, will be running a one-day-only website hosting promotion, but they are not the only company participating in this new and exciting initiative.

Following in the successful footsteps of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, South Africans can now put their hands together to warmly welcome eCommerce Day. This year, the inaugural day will take place on Wednesday the 10th of March. CEO, Wayne Diamond is thrilled about this initiative saying that it couldn’t have come at a better time. “The global pandemic has made consumers more open to the idea of turning to the internet when buying everything from everyday goods to specialised items. It is also a way to continue to support local retailers and brands.”

As much as eCommerce Day will aim to bring consumers and online retailers closer together, it will also inspire new eCommerce start-ups to take the leap. eCommerce is booming, and now is the time to make it work for your current business or start-up.

“Not only has eCommerce given retailers another way to sell and circumvent additional losses, but it has also given many South African entrepreneurs a reason to dream. The new online stores and eCommerce initiatives that were born during the various Lockdown Levels are nothing other than ingenious.” will also be participating in the day. Because an eCommerce website is only as good as the website hosting that powers it, the company will sell new DirectAdmin Website Hosting signups at less 10%*. The following promotional code may be used on the website on the 10th of March: DA10Ecom.
