Yuppiechef at your doorstep
Yuppiechef is an e-commerce site that is now delivering directly to Namibian customers and also offer customers the place to create their very own customised bridal registries.
Namibian customers can now gain an online shopping experience that inspires their inner master chef by browsing the latest goodies from the comfort of their home, downloading free tested recipes or signing up for a module in the Yuppiechef Online Cooking School to master new dishes and techniques. Brands including the likes of: Le Creuset, Kenwood, Wusthof, Kitchencraft, Magimix and many more are available through the online store.
Fran Peacock, Head of International Growth at Yuppiechef said that they recognised Namibia as an ideal market to offer their products and services, not only because of the largely trendy and affluent population but because they share the love of home cooking and good quality brands.
“With the 93% mobile phone penetration and the widely spread use of the Internet, it is clear to see that Namibia is well placed to take to on line shopping in line with the rest of the world,” said Peacock.
Yuppiecef has been voted South Africa’s No 1 e-commerce site for the past five years and they are leading the way in on line shopping and because of this, they are sure to follow suit enthusiastically in the Namibia market too.
“Being our closest neighbour does come with its benefits, as customers in Namibia will not be charged customs for goods ordered from South Africa, local VAT will however apply.
This makes the costs of purchasing online from South Africa a lot more affordable than it might be from other countries further afield,” said Peacock. “There is no doubt that the large access to digital devices in Namibia and the affluent nature of these customers is indicative of the demand to move to all things digital, where online shopping and bridal registries, we believe, will be no different. It is for this reason that we look forward to seeing continued customer interest as we grow in the region,” he said.
