I received an eBay order on Monday 05 July, delivered with FedEx, used MyUS for the first time after using AGS a few times. Delivery took 6 working days from when the item was received (2 weekends in between), and pricing was comparable to AGS, including customs.
Indeed looks pretty nice they do seems to have package limit count, which is weird.

As recieve lots of singles trading cards, and not sure if 1 will count towards it, even know its pretty small

Not sure how it works or if there's extra costs involved for storage, as I don't plan on importing too often, but they do offer package consolidation.

From their site: "Tell us how you’d like to ship your purchases to ZA (consolidate your purchases for free to save on shipping and choose expedited or standard shipping via FedEx, UPS or DHL)."

Does anyone know how to calculate vat/import fees on headphones? Looking to import airpods and not sure how much cheaper they would land after taxes etc using AGS.

Does anyone know if DHL Global mail via PO is working?
My wife ordered something about 3.5 months ago using this, and it eventually arrived on Thursday. Takes a while, but did get here... Tracking said it arrived at JIMC a month after it was sent, so holdup is with PO service.

sounds equally bad as using the PO directly. Ouch.

Anyone having big problems with Aramex recently?

Been 11 days waiting in customs at OR Tambo, no contact from them (not even to ask for ID, which has happened every other time Ive got a parcel!?)

Contact with them ends with a "contact this email address..." Or " we will contact you"... Which they dont!?

(not global shopper, but a parcel originally DPD that got passed to Aramex at some point!?)

Considering what she paid for what she thought was DHL courier, crazy. When it hit SA, she couldn't track at all and she a rally gave up on ever receiving the parcel.
Was fully tracked outside SA, no problem.

DHL global mail sound bid dodgy.

Below is my DHL parcel, left new York yesterday and touching down in cpt tonight and DHL delivers on Sundays sometimes so might have it tomorrow. Otherwise I'll have it Monday.

Goes from new York, Germany, Amsterdam then cpt. Flights lined up really nicely.

DHL is the best out there. Only problem is their charges

I’d say, from personal experience, UPS is the absolute best. Incredible passion for their job and incredible service.

New York Aramex Global Shopper is jacked-up at the moment.
I ordered an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 cellular tablet via eBay. Seller in New Jersey posted it priority mail to NY on Friday. I set up email tracking via USPS.
First I knew was Aramex NY emailing me that a shipment had arrived.
Only 2 hours later did USPS inform me that the shipment was delivered.
Ebay informed me shortly after that.
I was delighted as I didn't want a Samsung Tablet stuck in a depot over the weekend, and even more delighted that Aramex was open on a Saturday.
Now for the South African efficiency (drum-roll).

The international leg is always efficient.

The delays happen at customs in SA where our (non)efficient public servants work

Yeah they mostly ignore packages coming in until let the know about it. Mostly take a few days before they issue the invoice, once Invoice is issued they clear it next day.

I email them each time when parcel is in jhb.
