Where to buy toilet paper online in South Africa

We’ve rounded up the top places to stock up on toilet paper online based on pricing and availability.

Due to recent events, many stores are experiencing a shortage of certain products. Be aware that many retailers may currently be out of stock, have longer shipping times than usual or be charging above-average prices. Remember that stockpiling items isn’t actually necessary right now and that over-buying can leave others vulnerable.

While it is usually simple enough to buy in-store, many people across South Africa have switched to buying their necessities online due to the coronavirus and many retailers have started to cater for that need, so it pays to look online.

Fortunately, it’s not too difficult to pick up a few rolls if you know where to look. To save you the trouble, we’ve gathered all the online stores selling toilet paper in one place.

Don’t get stuck at home during self-isolation without having a few spare rolls lying around.
