I wouldn't trust using them for valuables, it's just to east to steal your parcel since the only ones who know you put it into the box would be you and the thief collecting it.

Fantastic. No complaints whatsoever.. They even go the extra mile and keep frequent contact with you... Sometimes they have competitions on twitter.

Good to know. I have signed up.
They have a $10 promo till the end April. But I used a promo code that I found to register for free. Will post it here when I'm back at my pc.

How cool is this??? Way cool! Code AGS1002014 still works :) Sweet. Saved $45.
@DA-LION-619: Thank you buddy! Very appreciated.

@RichardG: Quick Q Richard. How are duties handled? See nothing on the T&Cs for that.

The code still works.
Now you can buy from shops that don't offer EMS/DHL shipping and from other shops that do have premium shipping but for a lot less($23 for 1kg or $15 for less than 0.5kg).
Only problem is they don't consolidate different packages, each parcel ships out immediately and can also not do multiple destination addresses.

Anyone know of any other services with cheap prices but can also consolidate several packages?
Also have to be able to ship from Europe & China, not services like myus that only work for the US.

Hiya guys,

So I've used Aramex Global Shopper.
Glad to say my package arrived.
The service works, however isn't without issues.

Observations...
1. It took 2 days from when USPS tracking showed that the shipment was received by Aramex to when it showed up on my account.
2. I tried to make payment however nothing happened, shipment went into some weird Account submit
status and no payment options were offered. Tried to contact Aramex but the website channels are poor.
Live chat does not work. Emails were not responded to until Wednesday of the week following - actually after the
issue was resolved. The resolution... the Pay option is activated when the item is dispatched. There's no
confirmation of fee. It's pretty much just forwarded on.
3. Item took 5 days to arrive.
4. Item is left in packing as received. They just stick on a forwarding label.

I will use the service again however the website is very poor, customer service is borderline. :(
I'm glad I trialed it out with a R300 item. I can't image the nail biting if it were something more expensive.
Sadly my item was 20grams over .05kg, which cost me R275 rather than R175. The vendor threw in a freebie which bumped up the weight and cost be the extra ZARs. :)
