About Powerbite

Like all good companies, Powerbite started with an idea. When owner Duncan Matthews realised the need to safely buy and sell new and used Macbooks and iPhones he started Powerbite. Since then Powerbite has grown and expanded in leaps and bounds to become your proudly South Africa, trusted way to buy and sell your old Macbook and iPhone.

At Powerbite we dont sell products, we sell customer service. Our primary mission is to ensure that you the customer have the best experience. We also believe in mutual respect. We are all beings and we tend to make mistakes. How we react to those mistakes is what makes us human.

If you arent happy with the way service has been provided, please dont hesitate to ask to speak to Anthea. If Anthea is not able to assist you, you can contact Duncan directly on Linkedin.
