The PriceCheck MTN app is live!

PriceCheck is proud to officially unveil their co-branded MTN app. The partnership between PriceCheck and MTN proves how important the relationship between mobile in retail and e-commerce really is. This is further emphasised by the fact that smartphones are outselling feature phones for the first time in Africa, opening up and expanding the already booming e-commerce sector.
The partnership between PriceCheck and MTN proves how important the relationship between mobile in retail and e-commerce really is. This is further emphasised by the fact that smartphones are outselling feature phones for the first time in Africa, opening up and expanding the already booming e-commerce sector.

In their CEO André de Wet's words, "The partnership with MTN puts PriceCheck directly in front of end-users when they are looking for product information. We are making shopping easier and more relevant for the consumer, all the while mimicking real-life behaviour. Less than 1% of retail happens online, yet as much as 40% of the buying decision process starts on mobile. We are now in a position to impact that crucial moment of influence. The future of commerce is on mobile and together with MTN, PriceCheck is closing the loop."

The app is unchanged, and you're still able to compare product prices, use the barcode scanner and find reviews and store details. It now also includes a direct link to the MTN online shop, where subscribers can conveniently upgrade mobile devices, buy airtime and compare contracts.

This move also greatly benefits MTN, as group chief commercial officer Pieter Verkade explains: "MTN is continually exploring opportunities to deliver a distinct customer experience to our customers. The partnership with PriceCheck marks another important step in our expansion into the digital space, particularly into e-commerce and will allow customers to find the best deal wherever they go. Whereas our customers in South Africa will be first to enjoy the benefits of this relationship, plans are already underway to introduce a local version of the app in other markets in the region," he added.

Head to your mobile app store and download the PriceCheck MTN app today, and you can get saving tomorrow!
