Subscriptions Change How We Shop


Remember when the only way you could shop was to physically go to a store? Back before the internet ruled the world, and apps were just a word for the starters you’d serve at dinner parties? 

In the age of online shopping, we consume products completely differently. Access is the best it’s ever been, with everything and anything you could want quite literally at your fingertips. Need lunch? Flowers? A UPS? A fridge? A gift? No need to leave your home, you can just click a few buttons and get whatever you need right to your doorstep. 

The next frontier? Subscriptions. Everyone has dipped their toes into entertainment subscriptions in some way – think Netflix, Spotify, and Amazon Prime. And now, product descriptions are sweeping the world, becoming more and more popular as time goes by. Once you try it, you’ll never want to go back.

Here’s how subscriptions are revolutionising the way we shop. 

Commitment-Free Living

Commitment is so last year. In 2024, we’re taking a page from Nick Cannon and being free and open. Why stick with one product when you can play the field? With a Rentoza subscription, you don’t need to make one choice and stick with it. If you no longer want or need it, no worries! You can end your subscription at any time, penalty free. 

If you’re a tech fan, you know the struggle of buying a phone, only for a newer, better model to come out in a few months. Then you have to either sell your old phone – which is a hassle in itself – or keep it and lose out on the money you dropped on it. With subscriptions, you won’t be saddled with that waste of money. You can get the latest iPhone and when the next one drops, simply upgrade your product. Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy. 

Subscriptions also help us live a more minimalist life by reducing unnecessary clutter. How many of us have old tech gathering dust in a drawer somewhere because we no longer use it? E-waste is the fasting growing waste stream in South Africa, with every South African generating about 6-7kg of e-waste every year. With subscriptions, there’s no need to deal with the tech waste because you can simply return the item when you don’t need it anymore.

Greater Access

Let’s be real: We like things. From cellphones to headphones, smart TVs to gaming consoles, there are so many products out there that are really fun to play with. Their price tags, however? Not so fun.

Subscriptions change the way you live because it gives you greater access to all those products you’ve got your eye on. Want a new speaker? Or an Xbox? What about the latest iPhone? You can subscribe to all of these in an instant without stressing about how you’ll pay for it. You can gain access to the lifestyle you dream of, without needing the insane budget to get there. 

Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Hisense – you can get the best of the best with Rentoza at manageable prices. With an abundance of options at your disposal, you’re granted access to a world of innovation. 

Financial Flexibility

We all wanna be flying first class up in the sky, popping champagne, living the life (shoutout to Fergie). However, that lifestyle is not realistic for the majority of us. Many South Africans live paycheck to paycheck, and we have to be smart when it comes to budgeting.

Remember when a loaf of bread cost R10? Now, it’s R15! Whether it’s groceries, data, clothes, or tech, things have become a lot more expensive. Sometimes we have to make a trade-off between items because we can’t afford both. We’ve all had to drop way too much money buying an essential item, only to struggle for the rest of the month to make ends meet. 

Traditionally, if there’s a big ticket item that you need, you’re faced with three choices. First option: You can buy it cash, which means that you either have to save for a long time to get the money you need, or go without other necessities to afford it. Your second option is that you can take a contract out, and end up paying far beyond the actual price of the item. Lastly, you could use some form of credit or a buy now, pay later agreement, which means you pay for the item as well as the interest that accrues. To us, none of those options sound particularly fun, easy, or glamorous. 

Here’s where subscriptions completely change the game for financial flexibility and financial freedom. Subscriptions allow you to budget way more easily, because you’re charged a fixed month-to-month fee for as long as you want the item. This fixed fee makes budgeting a breeze, because you can easily track the money you spend on essential items, freeing up cash for savings (and some fun purchases too). 

Ownership often comes with unexpected expenses, like insurance, maintenance, and repairs – which can all drain your wallet. With a Rentoza subscription, you don’t have to worry about that. All our products come bundled with Rentoxa Protect which covers you against loss, theft, and damage. This is another way to cut down on unexpected costs. 

Subscriptions are the future of shopping. They’re easy, affordable, accessible, and convenient. As our lifestyles become more focused on newness, turn to subscriptions to keep up. 

Commitment is messy. Just Rentoza it.
