Have2Have was founded in 2004, in our first 5 years we have delivered nearly 20000 orders. With satisfied customers across South Africa our mission is simple, the widest range at the lowest possible price to your door.
Our story begins in 2003, when one of the owners wanted to buy a new high-end digital camera. Locally the prices were incredibly high, after searching the internet he found the same camera almost R15000 cheaper in America! Without much thought he ordered online and hoped that in three or so weeks he would have the camera he had wanted.
24hours later he received an email from the store in New York to say "Sorry we don’t ship to South Africa, and we don’t take payment from South African credit cards" and so what seemed to be an easy solution, wasn’t. Many stores later it became obvious to him that South Africans weren't welcome at USA online shops. Luckily for him he chose to go to New York and buy the camera, using the savings to pay for the airfare and hotel. Being a bit of an entrepreneur he also managed to convince friends to give him money so that he could buy camera's, cell phones and car parts for them.
Back in South Africa, friends happy with their new toys, and him with his new camera he discovered that the week holiday to the Big Apple had cost nothing, even after the flights, hotels and entertainment, he actually had spent less money than if he had bought his camera here. The idea was born.
Soon friends and friends of friends were asking "when are you going to New York" I need this and I need that". It didn’t take long to figure out this has business potential, once a regional office was found and staffed we could start trading as the Have2Have you know today.
The business has grown and today we have offices in Asia too! We no longer fly around the world to fetch goods for you personally, but with staff around the world the idea remains the same; if you need something overseas, we will be the friend that will buy it for you and bring it back to South Africa, taking care of all the logistics, including Customs regulations and delivery to your door! Its like having the best of Asia and North America at your favourite mall.
