The tough solution to your International parcels not arriving is not to buy anything overseas that you cannot justify paying a courier to bring in. I took that decision years ago. Too much energy and money wasted waiting for stuff that never arrives.
That's not realistic, I order a lot of stuff from eBay and AliExpress that costs +/- USD5 to USD10.
You can't bring that in with a courier, and a lot of the stuff is not available locally.
Yes, my suggestion is not always feasible. I sympathize with anyone in this situation, especially those trying to run a business.^ This on common spares. Or spend R1500 to R2500 on a new one, add the same amount for shipping, pass the costs on - and everybody says you're cheating them.
