- Our default shipping agent is the South African Postal Service.ip
- For a trial period we are charging a flat rate of R50.00 for each order posted to a South African postal address.
All parcels are sent with a tracking number that will be forwarded to you via email once the parcel has been posted. Parcels will be posted on a first come first served basis. As each order receives our personal attention, please expect posting of parcel only after 5-10 days from receipt of payment. Parcels may be tracked via the SAPO track and trace website. For any parcel delays or problems please contact SA Postal Service Directly at: 086 011-1502 orwww.sapo.co.za.
- If you wish your parcel to be insured, please add 2% of the order total to your payment and request insurance in the notice text block on check-out (or send me an email). For what it’s worth… In the last 6 years of posting un-insured but tracked mail-order parcels via the SA Postal Service We have had exactly 0 parcels go missing and 0 parcels get damaged out of approximately 650 items. SAPO seems to be taking the tracked parcel system very seriously.
