About Us

The SOOQ is a name derived from the play of the Arabic name for “marketplace” and is inspired by the amazing marketplace’s of the world & the excitement, the mystery and the secrets that marketplace’s naturally encompass. The vision of this new online ecommerce store is to act as an online marketplace for small businesses in SA, incorporating products from fashion, accessories, shoes, Baby items, food & more into one easily accessible store, collaborating with small business owners nationally and delivering countrywide & internationally.

The marketplace has grown substantially since opening its "virtual doors" for trading in February 2020 – with support growing from the industry and customers. The SOOQ is inspired by the "hustle" of small business owners and as an equally small proudly SA business, share's the idea that collaborating is one of the biggest business levers any business has to grow, and ubuntu is not just a word for individuals but works in business too. 

Suppliers that we work with are proudly South African, some import products internationally for resale in the SA market, or are makers of products on sale. The SOOQ also has a promotional & custom branding division as well as corporate gifting on offer.
