We're your new best friend! We get hold of a product, slash its price and then offer it to you for OneDayOnly. You've got 24 hours to take advantage of our generosity and then the deal is gone forever. Sad, but true.
Not only are we generous but we're also slightly psychic and know that you're about to ask what products we sell. We offer products from a range of electronics, gadgets, cosmetics and sport and lifestyle items at the lowest price you will find in South Africa. And no, we don't care if you bought something similar at the traffic lights for a lower price. That doesn't count and you know it.
Is it an impulse buy site? Certainly not. You've got 24 hours to think it over and since you make less rational decisions in five seconds, we're giving you plenty of time. Careful though, if you want the product badly, chances are so does the rest of the nation so make it snappy and shove that beauty into your trolley pronto.
How do we do it you ask? We have busy little buyers who are working daily with international brands to bring you the lowest possible offer price. Isn't that sweet? We think so.
Sign up here to receive our email newsletter, your each and every day heads up to the best of the best deals of the day. It also serves as a handy reminder to head over to our site to check out the rest of our deals.
Oh! Don't forget to spread the word!
At OneDayOnly we do our best to provide as much information about ourselves and our daily sales right here on the site. Before contacting us please first check our FAQ section.
If you have a question that isn't covered here, or is specific to an order, then we have a couple of different ways for you to get hold of us.
These options are devastatingly similar, because you can 1) fill out the form that pops up when you click "Contact Us" or you can 2) shoot through an email to email@example.com.
Luckily, we're surprisingly quick in getting a meaningful response back to you.
Lightning quick and you don't have to remember a thing. You're just one click away.
If you have an account with us, please log in.
Quite possibly. If you paid via EFT, please allow us a little time to process. If your bank sent us proof of payment, you should receive a confirmation email in the next hour or so.
That's easy to find out: go to your account to find out. But keep in mind the next question:
The short version? It's because we don't hold stock. Our partners deliver exactly what we need, after a deal has run. That way we keep our costs down, prices low and everybody (including you) happy.

Never have to wait at home all day for your parcel or miss a delivery again: Pargo delivers your parcels to a store near you.
Having partnered with hundreds of stores in South Africa, there's (almost) always a Pick-up Point near you: often with opening hours of up to 15 hours per day - some (like fuel stations) are even open 24/7!
Why not give it a try today?
Well, because we also have to pay for delivery. And that money needs to come from somewhere.
Shipping costs money and we don't want to go bankrupt.
We have debated the merits of offering free shipping at length but the reality is that – without some magic source of free cash – the only place that money can come from is from our customers.
That leaves us with two options: hide it in the price of the product, or show it. We decided to be transparent and show it. This lets us cut our prices to the bare minimum and show you the best possible savings.
If we had incorporated the shipping cost into the price of an item, you’d pay double whenever you order more than one item but, in reality, the cost of shipping doesn’t necessarily go up.
By the way: the actual shipping charge you pay is a best-effort approximation of what shipping is going to cost us. As a result, ordering a 3kg item to Sandton or Cape Town may work out cheaper than a 75g iPhone cover to Springbok. Don’t blame us; blame the vast expanse that is our beautiful South Africa.
We'd love to offer free shipping. But we can't, because that means turning our company into a loss-making enterprise.
We rarely hold stock. Our partners deliver exactly what we need, after a deal has run. That way we keep our costs down, prices low and everybody (including you) happy.
We're not like other online shops with a fixed catalogue and tons of stock. Instead, most of our products never come back to our website again. That’s how we want it, as it keeps us fresh and unpredictable (win #1).
So, after you (and lots of others) have placed your orders, we go to our suppliers and place a massive, single order. Our suppliers love this, as it keeps things simple and moving along smoothly. Happy suppliers equal low prices (win #2).
Since we don’t hold stock, we can work with a cheaper, medium-sized warehouse, instead of a mega-warehouse (win #3) and we’re saving lots on not needing any processes involved in handling and returning unsold stock, allowing us to offer better deals (win #4).
The practice of not holding stock is one of the core principles behind OneDayOnly’s success. That, and our sparkling personalities of course.
