About Us

PriceCheck gives you the ability to compare millions of product prices, across thousands of categories, from literally hundreds of stores, all from your browser or mobile device.

PriceCheck was established in 2006 due to the need for a convenient way to compare prices without physically going from shop to shop. After four successful years, PriceCheck joined the Naspers group in 2010, and has since continued to shape the African e-commerce sector as South Africa’s leading price comparison destination. PriceCheck is also a leader in price comparison in Nigeria, where we branched out to in 2013.

By mimicking real life, PriceCheck finds and compares numerous prices to help you find the right product at a price that suits your budget. By bridging the gap between bricks-and-mortar retailers and online shops, we bring the power of a mobile mall right to your fingertips.

The comparison of real-world products and their online counterparts is what we specialise in, and that’s why we built the first African mobile barcode scanner into our app. By using the in-app barcode scanner, you can simply scan a product in-store and in an instant you will receive prices, expert reviews, store and location information.

Our app is so convenient and easy to use that we even won an award for it in 2013.

So, if you’re still not using PriceCheck, you’re probably paying too much.
