To enable customers to help those in need during the national lockdown, the Shoprite Group via its affiliate Computicket has launched virtual vouchers which can be redeemed at any Shoprite, Checkers or Usave supermarket nationwide.

The virtual vouchers that can be safely bought, in just a few easy steps, are sent via SMS to a recipient’s mobile phone within an hour of placing the order. It can be redeemed immediately once received.

How it works:


        Go to to buy a voucher.

        The virtual voucher can only be used in-store (not online) by entering the unique voucher number into the pin pad at check out.

        Vouchers can only be redeemed once, with no change given if the purchase value is less than the voucher value. The remaining value will be loaded onto a gift card in store.

        Vouchers cannot be exchanged for cash and cannot be redeemed at MediRite pharmacies or at Money Market counters.

        Vouchers are valid for three years.


In addition to virtual vouchers, customers can also send money to recipients without bank accounts at the Money Market counters located in selected Shoprite, Checkers and Usave stores.
