    I paid around 65% or something crazy last time I bought clothes and had it sent through Aramex. It's a good idea to double check the amount charged. On my last order there were extra duties added that shouldn't have been.

    Does Amazon not provide shipping to SA for that product?

    I think they may have a point with the packaging not being sufficient

    I only know of Buyee for Japan https://buyee.jp/?lang=en. I've sent things with both AGS and EMS. Both arrived every time but Aramex was quicker and not that expensive when everything was sent together.

    I would contact the shop. With US customer service culture they're much more likely than Aramex to help you out. Wouldn't be surprised if they offered you a full refund even if it isn't entirely their fault. I can also see how some extra pressure in the wrong place could cause this to happen. I...

    If it was on EE it would be restricted just like NOKIA

    I was wondering maybe you were buying from .co.uk or somewhere other and the US site. I've always had it sent directly from amazon. The last thing I ordered was an electric shaver and I swear it arrived in 2 days and I didn't choose faster shipping. My sister ordered a Point of sale iPad stand...

    At what stage are your packages normally lost and how many packages did you have sent within that 3 months? And also, which Amazon site are you buying from?

    I had some books I ordered from a shop in Germany sent with AGS and they overcharged me for duties. I queried it and they responded by sending a PDF invoice with the updated amount and asked me to pay by EFT, however they didn't include bank details. I replied asking for them, to no response...

    I think a lot of people from WSB bought on principle and not to necessarily make money. To act against the hedge funds and short sellers

    I agree - it should be easier to easily see what I've bought and sold and when I did it. Another thing I don't like is that price charts only start from when a stock or product is added to the platform, which I then have search google for.

    I'm looking to move my USD account from EE to TD Ameritrade (I enquired and they allow South Africans). Does anyone have experience with this? I'm planning top use it to buy and hold US listed stocks.

    It has been very easy to make money in the past year. I've bought a bunch of hyped stocks (NIO, XPENG, LMND etc.), and sold them when they reached over 100%, and they've mostly still gone up a lot after that. I can't say that I've really done my due diligence or have major conviction.
