No.

Likely forecasting for volatility in the Rand. US prices are ex vat. Not including external costs like shipping and handling etc.
They are not shipped from the US to SA so shipping and handling should be very similar.

Don't they also have taxes and duties in the US? I don't buy the excuse that it's more expensive here because of these.

Nah, I'll pass. I've got far better things to waste money on rather than some exorbitantly overpriced iGadget.

Yes, but in the US prices are advertised without the added tax.
So only as soon as you purchase something they add the percentage on for tax -- essentially then you pay more than the shelf or advertised price.
