Welcome to PiFactory


The PiFactory has been created as a central point of all things related to the Raspberry Pi. We are totally independent and not associated with Raspberry Pi in any way. Unlike others we do not claim to be official distributors for Farnell, RS or element14, what we do claim is we genuinely stock Raspberry Pi and associated equipment in South Africa. If you want a Raspberry Pi tomorrow then you can order and we can despatch via courier to you the very same day.

In addition to providing hardware sales from our PiShop we also are creating discussion forums, links to project ideas and more. Please visit the various links to see what else you can do with Raspberry Pi and the Pi Factory.

To contact PiFactory email: info@pifactory.co.za


Please note our couriers have increased their rates from 1st January 2015 so we are having to increase our flat rate courier price to R150. Please be aware of this increase if you are now completing orders that were entered on the system last year.

We are working to find new dynamic courier companies who can accommodate our clients better and hope to be offering better rates and a wider range of services soon.

Thank you for your understanding.


We will be running an informal evening club on Wednesdays for interested parties to attend and get to grips with Raspberry Pi's and some of the more popular peripherals. We have capacity for 6 working areas and the idea is to come along get a few pointers and get started on your own personal project or simply use it as a time and place to advance your existing project further. We hope that those interested will range from absolute beginner through to expert and there will be a great deal of knowledge transfer between parties.

Collaboration Projects

We have a number of projects that we would ike to use the Raspberry PI in at various levels of development. We have been trying to get some of these to a position where they can be sold commercially. Unfortunately we have the age old problem of not enough hours in the day to get all what we need done. We are looking for individuals with printed circuit design/fabrication, html, python, css, php and associated skills at any level to make up a informal team to work on these and any other projects.
