Young entrepreneurs, Evans Parson and Kenneth Mohlodi, are taking the online trading, or shopping, movement by storm.

Called Vensy E-Mall, this open service e-commerce platform is proudly a first-of-its-kind online shopping mall in South Africa.

With the SMME sector as its primary target audience, Vensy E-Mall will make it possible for primarily small businesses/entrepreneurs in various sectors – retail, wholesale, distribution, amongst others – to trade, buy, sell, and promote their goods and services online to Vensy E-Mall’s extensive customer base.

“Entrepreneurship is regarded by government, economists, and the private sector as the vehicle which will trigger the economic transformation which our country so desperately needs”, says Evans Parson, Vensy E-Mall’s Founder and CEO.

“But to be successful, and to truly make a meaningful impact, entrepreneurs require access to markets to grow and develop sustainable organisations. We are confident that our Vensy E-Mall will have a significant positive impact on the way in which small businesses/entrepreneurs will do business”, he concludes.

The online shopping mall will be available for download via mobile and desktop applications on the Google Play Store for Android and Apple IOS.

“We encourage small business to download the app and register as vendors today. Our platform will facilitate the promotion of their products and services to an extensive target audience, not only in South Africa, but elsewhere in Africa too”, said Vensy’s CFO, Kenneth Mohlodi.

“In line with the global trend of moving away from physical stores, our vendors will have the benefit of being open for business 24/7. There are also cost-saving implications with managing inventory online since a number of the functions are automated; there are a myriad of benefits for vendors!” he said.

The Vensy E-Mall E-Commerce platform will be launched at an event on Friday, September 27 at Emperor’s Palace.
