Shipping outside of South Africa

Here are some options on how to buy when ordering from outside South Africa

Have an acquaintance as an intermediary

Shipping to an acquaintance is one of the best options when the seller does not offer international shipping. If you have a friend who lives in the country where you are purchasing the item, you can kindly ask them to serve as an intermediary. This is one of the cheapest delivery alternatives, but it requires having someone abroad you can rely on.

All you need to do is have the item delivered to their house and ask them to forward it to you. They can send it by mail or through courier companies.

Book the delivery with a package forwarding service

Parcel forwarding companies are becoming very popular as online shopping takes off. They offer a digital solution for purchasing from retailers who are not willing to ship abroad. Before buying the item online, you should place a request with the parcel forwarding company describing the contents and destination of the package. Once the service is settled, a local address is designated to you. The seller ships the item to this address, and it is then redirected to your home country. Sometimes the item can be stored in a local collection point where you can pick it up, which is very useful for people who are away for work during most of the day. All you need to do is find the best parcel forwarding company for your location.
