Takealot in South Africa, which is currently offline, took to Twitter this morning to apologise to scores of users who had experienced issues, from the early hours of the morning, accessing and purchasing items from their website.

Some of the online shopping service websites have crashed with many customers trying to cash in on Black Friday deals. CEO Kim Reid says they have experienced a service failure. 

"We’ve had a service failure with a critical piece of code which communicates with much of the site. It took us a little while to figure this out. Our priority right now is to get that up and running."

Black Friday is the day where people go all out for bargains and price cuts. Shoprite's Niel Shroeder says they are prepared, “We know what to expect now and we have much more security and client control than someone doing it for the first time. People are patient and we hope everyone has a good day.”
