Aramex Global Shopper is fantastic. It permanently erased the dreaded “This item does not ship to Jeffreys Bay, South Africa. Please check other sellers who may ship internationally” message from my Amazon and allows me to bypass the broken South African postal service.
Delivery times to South Africa are quick. It’s when your package reaches customs that the waiting begins.
It might seem like an expensive service, but Aramex allows you to get exactly what you want, not what your local shop tells you to want.
Aramex could improve their service in terms of handling opened support tickets, but if you really need to get hold of them urgently they’re a phone call away.
Time will tell if Aramex is worth using on a continual basis, but for now I’m happy with their service.
I highly recommend signing up for Aramex Global Shopper.
