DURBAN – Allsale Club is a members-only online shopping business which aims to save consumers money on everything from everyday branded items to luxury items.
Led by co-founder and e-commerce veteran Justin Drennan and co-founder and chief executive Michelle Lehrer, Allsale Club has the experience of two of South Africa’s leading e-commerce market players, online shopping website Wantitall and full-service fulfilment and distribution facility ParcelNinja.
Drennan said Allsale Club leveraged existing Wantitall and Parcel Ninja processes, infrastructure and IT development, translating into a fully functioning supply chain from launch.
"Allsale Club works with suppliers around the world to bring more than half a million products to South Africans, many of which are not currently available on local shelves. With a members-only approach, the business model is driven by membership fees and not margins," said Lehrer.
The site handles all import related charges including duties and offers free returns. "We’ve made our business transparent for customers – the price you see online is the price you pay, including VAT, with no hidden customs duties," said Lehrer.
