Headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa: APPTO is a South Africa's new on-demand shopping delivery service.

We deliver from local merchants such as Restaurants, Pharmacies, Grocery Stores, Liquor Stores, Hardware Stores, Food Markets and Spaza Shops.

We think of ourselves as a neighborhood eCommerce platform solving the shopping convenience problem fueled by the lazy economy and social distancing need enforced by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The so-called lazy economy refers to a new type of consumption demand, which by nature is timesaving, labour-saving and convenient. As the pace of life accelerates, people spend more time working, commuting and socialising, and conversely do not have time to spend on brick-and mortar shopping.

As an on-demand shopping app, we have emerged to meet people's demand for a convenient and safer local shopping experience while creating local jobs through our Driver Partner programme.
