    How Everyshop's prices compare to Takealot and other stores

    Everyshop - Mellerware Modena 3 In 1 Coffee Maker R1499. Same price as Hi-Fi Corporation. No suprise there. I bought mine for R999 from Loot. 3 day shipping to Cape Town was R41. Everyshop - Russell Hobbs 20lt Electronic Microwave R1199. I bought mine from Takealot for R1099 with free delivery...

    This is for people renewing Flex on Aramex Global Shopper (not Aramex Express). According to the email we get 2 months free if we renew Flex with the promo code CelebrateLove21 The catch? How do we put in the code? My Flex expires in June. It tells me so, and there is no option to renew. [emoji848]

    It's Chinese New Year. All Chinese industry literally stops. Everyone goes home. For three weeks people swap red envelopes and eat moon cakes. And food. Plenty of food. Your parcels in HK will sit to end Feb, unless you were really lucky and they got out.

    We have no SAA, so have to rely on other countries carriers having space for extra cargo. Dubai is how our main hub for all shipments. Things were different a year ago. Faster, with direct flights. Less people hunkering down and ordering online. Now, a year later, we live in a grim world...

    Use your account number as a reference. I would also email the guy with your account number, shipment number and proof of payment.

    You can also enter the tracking number on the Aramex Global Shopper website (as long as it isn't UPS or the UK SNS #). Sometimes a shipment sits there as they have no account to allocate it to.

    You can work it out. Amazon will have the weight. They also list the charges. You then go to Aramex Global Shopper and calculate the shipping price according to weight. Add the charges Amazon gave you. You then have some idea as to which route you prefer. Take into account that AGS is an...

    I make a screen grab of my invoice and add the local tracking number and Aramex tracking number. As I pay for my Chinese purchases through Alipay I also take a screen grab of their fees and add at the bottom and add amount together to show the actual amount that went through on my card. Alipay...

    The Chinese Market is set up for their biggest market - USA. It might actually be cheaper to get the seller to send e-packet to New York than to Hong Kong.

    Agreed, Hong Kong is where your shipment should go. Don't use Shanghai. They are way more expensive than HK. Shanghai should only be used if you are ordering from a company inside mainland China like Taobao or T-Mall. FYI... Hong Kong is considered a foreign country to anybody in China and they...

    For those that ask, both UK and USA Origins are fast at the moment. 2 days max before you see the shipment reflected in your account. Everything gets routed via Dubai at the moment as there is no SAA anymore flying direct.
