There is a lot to learn about this online platform, and we hope to cover a bulk of the information in this article. As mentioned, Guzzle is an online platform with its peculiarities and a unique set of services that it offers to its customers. 

In this article, we will give you an overview of this unique service and how to get the most out of it. The goal is to make your daily shopping experience that much better. So, learn all there is to know about Guzzle South Africa, what it is and how it works. Also, find out which of your favourite South African retailers are working with Guzzle.  

What is Guzzle? 

Guzzle is a South African website that allows its users to compare the prices of brick-and-mortar stores, paying particular attention to goods that are on specials. The platform is an aggregated portal made up of both paper and digital catalogues of products from top retailers in the country. Since its inception in May 2011 by Ric Meulemans and Oliver Bryant, the company has grown to accommodate hundreds of retailers in the country. 

How does Guzzle work? 

The guzzle website only shares catalogues of product specials. What they do is that they share 20,000 product specials for a duration of one week. When the specified time elapses, they start the week with a new set of products from different retailers. The products that are displayed are from several major South African retail stores. Customers can then compare the prices and choose which retailer to purchase from. Whether you choose the Guzzle website or the mobile application, using Guzzle helps you save time and money and helps you get the best out of your purchases. 

Guzzle does not sell products or items, and it doesn’t get involved in the buying and selling process either. They only display the products on special for that week. Going through 20.000 products might be very tasking, so you have the option to search for a product through the product type or the supplier.
