HiFi Corp Cellphone prices

HiFi Corp cellphones prices seem to be aimed at the affordable-midrange cellphone market. It seems they have moved on from the cheap entry-level cellphone market as you will hardly find any cellphones for sale for under R1,000 save for a few Mobicel smartphones.

What we did find is about 20 smartphones under the R2,500 mark. These included entry-level smartphones like the 2023 Tecno Spark Go and Itel P40.

Buying a cellphone on credit

As a customer, you may choose to apply for revolving credit, or installment credit.
When you apply for an account with HiFi Corp you are taken through a credit vetting/assessment, where their systems check your credit scores and affordability assessments.

As with most shops that have installment credit the following are some of the documents and conditions needed to apply for credit:

  • Be 18 and above, with a valid identity document or passport
  • A valid proof of residence
  • Three months bank statement or a payslip as proof of an income
  • Monthly expenses to prove affordability
  • A credit life insurance document, or else this insurance can be taken through HiFi Corp

It is also possible to make payments using other credit companies like mobicredit and paynow.

Buy a cellphone on lay-by

You can lay-by a cellphone from HiFi Corp for up to 3-months. You can also lay-by a cellphone that is on special/promotion, with the exception of online only or clearance deals.

With lay-by you are able to pay for a cellphone over a longer period. With HiFI Corp they allow their customers to make payment over 3 months: A deposit, and then up to 3 further payments. This makes it more affordable for those who do not qualify for a cellphone contract to also afford a good-looking and great performing smartphone.

A lay-by is a smart idea for those who want to save buy a cellphone without a contract. A lay-by also allows them to cancel their lay-by and get a refund (minus a small cancellation fee).

HiFi delivery costs, and returns

Buying a cellphone online is becoming the preferred way of buying cellphones because of the convenience. You don’t have to leave your home and your new cellphone will be delivered to you.

HiFi Corp will deliver your cellphone if your total online order is R450 or more. So at one time if your checkout is R450 or more you will get free delivery. With more than 50 cellphones over the price of R450, there is more than a good chance you may get free delivery.

But for returns, HiFi Corp policy is that you will need to return the phone physically.
