Many ecommerce experts predicted that 2020 will be the biggest Black Friday ever, especially in the online space. The 2020 PayFast ecommerce performance index (PEP Index) showed that ecommerce will double this year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The extended lockdown and need for social distancing resulted in a 100% increase in online transactions between April and May 2020. PayFast MD Jonathan Smit said this growth was sustained throughout the rest of the year, making for an interesting trend ahead of the coming Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend.
