Written by

Mobile Planet announced a new Group Buying service at the Mobile Web East Africa. Group buying, also known as collective buying, offers products and services at significantly reduced prices on the condition that a minimum number of buyers would make the purchase. In Kenya, we have seen a number Group buying services like Rupu, Zetu deals, Mocality Daily Deals and it will be interesting to know how Mobile Planet intend to tackle Kenyan market. To participate one needs to join the groups on the website by use of email address.

LG P970 Mobile Phone from The Junction Mall is listed on the site. Generally, some of deals you can get from group buying websites are restaurant meals, spas, extreme sports, beauty treatments, flying lessons, cinema tickets, entertainment ,cakes, flowers and many more. The group buying sites make their money by splitting the discounted price with the business promoting the offer.

Here are the two tips on Sahizi website:

  • To get the best prices invite your friends and relatives to join the group you are in. The more the buyers the better the best price!
  • If the product you are interested in is not listed, you may suggest it by clicking the ‘Can’t find what you’re looking for’ link at the bottom.
