The Brand

Launched in Perth, Australia in 1984, Cash Converters has grown to become the world’s largest international retail chain specialising in the buying and selling of second hand goods. Cash Converters has over 700 stores operating internationally over four continents, in 21 countries globally.

Cash Converters Southern Africa started operating in October 1994 with a pilot site in Parow, Cape Town. Franchising began in late 1995 and from humble beginnings the group became the fourth largest territory internationally. Cash Converters Southern Africa has sold over 65 franchises, and currently have stores located in the Eastern Cape, Gauteng, KwaZulu Natal, Mpumalanga, North West, Namibia and the Western Cape.


Cash Converters is the world’s largest and trusted specialist in the buying and selling of second hand goods and provides the fastest and easiest access to cash. Cash Converters has been in South Africa since 1994 and has over 65 stores pan-Southern Africa and we are expanding. Cash Converters is the world’s largest franchised trader of second-hand goods and now also offers a range of personal cash loans. We provide fast and easy cash loans for our customers, which include Cash Advance™ and the PayDay Advance™ loans, quick and easy cash when you need it most.

Cash Converters stores are upmarket, well-located, modern retail outlets servicing a much needed niche in the marketplace. Our buyers purchase quality second hand merchandise from customers in their respective communities and then sell on at prices everyone can afford.

Cash Converters has changed consumer perceptions of its industry by the systematic application of modern retailing practices, professional management techniques and high ethical standards. We have successfully overcome the misconceptions of the traditional second-hand dealer.

It’s interesting to note that, even at the lowest point of the recent economic slump, Cash Converters stores generated double digit returns. Regardless of the financial climate, customers will always require our services.
