How it works


Snupit is a free app that helps you find great local businesses. Whether you looking for the city’s tastiest pizza to the most renowned cardiologist, your search in the neighbourhood ends here.

Using South Africa's No 1 online local search

As a Snupit user, you have free access to search for a company, product or service by location, keyword, business name, and/or category.

Simply enter the type of product or service you are looking for e.g. “Plumber”, “Italian Cuisine” or “Computer Repairs” in the “I am looking for…” box and then the preferred location in the “Where” box e.g. “Sandton” and click “Search”.

The results page will display a list of all businesses related to your search. Each business listed in the search results will contain detailed information and everything you will need to know to make your decision on which business to choose to make your next purchase from. You will also be able to enjoy a free map to guide you to the business location.

Snupit’s search results are based on our proprietary algorithm that is designed to return the best results matching your search criteria. Exact matches will appear towards the top with those that satisfy only some of your criteria lower down the list. Highlighted listings may appear at the top of the search results. These are listings for Snupit advertising customers who have paid for their listing to appear higher in the results and to give you extra information such as detailed descriptions, photos, videos and special offers. Only advertisers that exactly match your criteria will appear at the top. No advertisers will appear in the results unless they match all or some of your criteria.

If you cannot find what you are looking for in your location, then Snupit will broaden the search to the nearest available region to suit your needs.

It is as simple as that . . . and also free!!!
