A new start-up called Click n Compare allows South African consumers to compare financial, connectivity and other services. The service makes it possible to easily compare mobile phone contracts and broadband services, various types of insurance, long-term and short-term loans, banking products and travel.
Click n Compare says it aims to be “a one-stop-shop for consumers” that will save them time and money. On the banking front, the platform also allows users to source the lowest home loan quotes, invest in binary options investments and even handles their SARS tax returns.
When it comes to travel, Click n Compare makes it possible to compare flights on any airline to anywhere in the world.
Marx describes the services as South Africa’s “first completely unbiased platform” and says it prides itself on being “independent and transparent”.
“Click n Compare caters for everyone, whether it’s a simple upgrade of your mobile contract, sourcing an affordable alternative to your current insurance plan or even generating passive income by trading binary options and forex,” Marx says. “We have simplified these historically hard-to-navigate categories, allowing every South African the opportunity to gain access to these products.”
Marx says the service is all about giving consumers as much relevant information as well so that they can make the best informed purchasing decision. The service is free to consumers, and also includes additional educational information for consumers and carries industry news relevant to the sectors it covers.
