Sandton City has gone digital as the first mall to launch on the Avo app by Nedbank. The virtual mall is a first for any digital platform on the continent, opening up a luxury shopping experience across borders. Avo’s Click and Collect feature lets users shop items from multiple stores in Sandton City, pay for goods on the app, and gives them the choice between home delivery or collection from the Avo lounge lockers at Sandton City.


  • Avo by Nedbank has a built-in rewards system and users can earn 1% cash back in Avo Points on every purchase made on the platform.
  • The app currently has over 20 000 verified service providers, from home repair to party supplies, with more being added.
  • It was first launched in June 2020.

We aspire to enable our app users to do life differently. The concept of a digital mall is broad and includes everything from gaming, clothing and groceries to tech, gadgets and home décor. Our insights show that people across Africa are willing to travel to shop, with Sandton City being a preferred destination. We have onboarded more than 30 stores to date, and more are on the way, ensuring they are live on the platform for customers to start shopping. Avo is also open to any individual or business that would like to use the platform whether or not they are Nedbank clients.
