STOP comparing Amazon prices Takeallot. You most likely will find it much cheaper somewhere elsewhere.

How do you guys get it right, I tried buying something yesterday on Amazone and they said they do not deliver to South Africa?
Amarex Global Shopper gives you an address in the US/UK...etc so you fill their address in as yours and then there's no issues ordering from Amazon.

Appreciate

Only when you are in the checkout phase. Sometimes it will show the shipping+duties cost on the item page but it will be in dollars so best to just go through the checkout and right before confirming the purchase it has a nice breakdown in local currency. The duties cost is an estimate but they generally over estimate it and they refund you the balance after a month or two.
THANKS peter

Has the delivery due date passed? There are always shipping delays this time of the year due to increased volume, I wouldnt worry about it too much.

Made my first purchase from Amazon Thursday last week.
Received my package yesterday afternoon.

Impressed to say the least. Pretty much saved 50%.

Yeah - my Amazon Flashes arrived a week before their ETA although Aramex contacted me to provide them customs info... a day after they were delivered.

Yes, all the time. At least 1-5 products every month. Have them all shipped to my MyUS locker and from there via Fedex, UPS or DHL to me. Waiting time on average 1-3 days from Amazon to my locker and then 4 days or less from my locker to SA.
