SA Post Office

Regrettably we’ve had to (temporarily) disable post office delivery options until service levels improve.

We use the SA Post Office to deliver to any valid South African postal address. We will send you a tracking number by email when we dispatch your order and it should arrive at your nearest post office about 3-6 working days later at which point a collection note will be delivered to your postbox. You can then collect the delivery from your local post office counter.

It’s certainly not the fastest delivery method, but it is the most cost-effective!
