Shopping Cart

TechTrader is able to offer our customers quality devices, without being contract bound and subscribing to a 2 year network fee.  With todays network prices often being quite pricey and the packages not suited to our specific needs, it is easier (and more cost effective) to rather buy a pre-paid sim or a sim-only contract and purchase the device of your choice seperately.  This allows you to save money and still receive the iPhone 6S Plus, Apple iPad Air or Samsung Galaxy S6 Flat you have been wanting.

We have therefore partnered with Mobicred in order to offer our customers an easy and affordable option.  Mobicred is a simple & convenient credit facility that allows you to safely shop online with their participating retailers.
