Same goes with R24 Post office charge for items ordered on Ebay or Wish. Thought its just maybe once off when it happened a few months ago. Now I see that every one on my items are attracting this fee.
1. R24 is hand written on the collection card.
2. No official slip as in registered mail stating amount to pay.
3. No receipt for the charges is issued, The money are just accepted casually.
That's an interesting situation but from what I understand a Postnet mailbox is just a glorified forwarding address, Postnet collect/receive the postal mail in bulk from the Post office and then place your mail in your Postnet mailbox.
What will happen is you will receive the collection slips in your Postnet mailbox and still need to go collect the parcels and pay the fee at the Post Office.
If you receive a lot of SAPO post, then Postnet is a wonderful service. They go to the post office pretty much every day and collect all your mail for you.
I got one for the first time last year, but I got it too late, because most of the stuff I order costs $1-$3 so the R24 or R46.50 has killed my joy.
I would have really enjoyed the postnet box before the receiving post fee SAPO scam started.
The SAPO delay is another problem which makes SAPO intolerable for me. I ordered a LOT of parcels in the last year and had to wait 2~9 months for my stuff to arrive and only 96% of it has arrived.
So I've had enough of SAPO, I'm looking for alternatives.
