I'm expecting a shipment from Aliexpress and the cost of goods for my parcel on AGS is shown as 50 euros (spare part, but its not) but I should be 200 euros.
Will it result in delays when I upload the invoice showing the correct amount that doesn't match?
Only got a response today:
Kindly note your Johannesburg Account will be deleted in order to be able to create a new account with the Pretoria address.
So ridiculous, 2 weeks I ordered something from Canada and saw my address is still for WORK.
Due to Covid I have been working from home and thus needed to change my delivery address.
Attempted to change but couldn't change the City Field (Johannesburg to Centurion)- Said something along the lines of contact us in order to change those fields.
Sent them an email 2 weeks ago asking them to update my account to the new address.
So I try and login to see if my package has been picked up or is in transit, however I find that my account has been deleted and I now need to pay again to get back into my account.
Worst of all, I already have a package on the way which I now have no way of tracking.
I wasn't asked if they can go through with it, they just did it.
If I knew it was such a hassle, I would have kept the address the same and just go fetch the package from the office.
Account has been partially restored with my new address
Did the same experiment about a month ago:Send a small parcel from my nybox via aramex, lets see what happens
If it is quicker now il just go back to aramex to save costs.
My aramex parcel from nybox has no movement on trackingDid the same experiment about a month ago:
AGS vs Nybox Aramex. Both items shipped via USA.
Both items were very similar in weight but Nybox was R100 more expensive, shipping door to door was so similar It didn't really make a difference.
The only other thing to mention is, at least AGS answers the phone when you call to inquire the long delay on SA side. Direct aramex was quite a pain to get moving for customs clearance.
Hi everyone. Is there still a limitation on importing electronics with batteries from US? Was looking at an iPad Pro... and worried now I won't be able to get it this route.
Great, thank you. I thought as much after looking at their official documentation. Was going to go Apple/B&H route, but thank you.There is no limitation from the US. I’ve imported plenty just this month. BT headphones etc.
If you want to buy an iPad from Amazon it won’t allow you, same with Walmart.
