Wanna order a few covers but I'm looking for a partner to split shipping charges here... Maybe you can assist good Samaritan?Yeah, it is unfortunate that the Airmail service is so bad here in SA. I always suggest people use Aramex or DHL. Regarding the tracking, they suppose to contact you once it arrives but they have not been. I would advise that if you do have something coming in, track it daily in case they need something from you. It does depend on whether the item is in stock though.
I still make weekly orders as it is still so much better to wait a few weeks verses months for Airmail. Airmail is cheap (free in most places). Airmail is nice but I do not use unless it is for something that is less important for me.
I do notice that they seem to be splitting orders depending when and how they get the items on their side. My last order was split into 4 packages over 2 weeks and sent through. It is unfortunate but helps with customs as each package is now less but I still only paid once for shipping.
Regarding the postal code hassles, it is generally only for the first order. On the second order, you can use the correct postal code and the whole process will be so much smoother.
Aramex has been facing issues with delays on the tracking but it just means they forgot to scan it in Dubai. It does normally come right within a day or 2. If it does take longer then that, then I would suggest you call them. Aramex also do cover a certain amount if it gets lost. You, if you paid with PayPal, they do cover you for up to 40 days.
