Takealot Group CEO Kim Reid said the sale is based on similar shopping events established in the United States, China and India. 

“Internationally, annual events such as Amazon’s Prime Day, Alibaba’s Singles Day and Flipkart’s Big Billion Days highlight the demand for tailored shopping experiences in addition to great deals,” Reid said. 

Reid said what makes The Ultimate Checkout different is that it is built on shopper behaviour.
