I recently got to try out the services of Postbox Courier, they are basically a mail forwarding courier service that lets you bring in parcels from the US, EU and Hong Kong. This means you have access to all those online shopping sites that do not deliver to South Africa!!! Think of all the makeup, body products and clothing! Plus Signing up to Postbox Courier is FREE and delivery takes 3-5 days from when they receive your goods. The service is fantastic and they respond very quickly to any email queries so you never feel neglected or lost in the shipping process! I was really impressed when trying it out and will definitely be using Postbox-courier again. They also have good rates that are lower than other courier companies!
I chose to shop on the US ColourPop cosmetics site and bring in some makeup!!! How freaking exciting is that! Having my own little ColourPop package delivered to me. But Ill show you that later ;)
How it Works:
- Sign up HERE for FREE on the Postbox courier site and make your account. you will be given addresses in those countries to send your packages to
- Shop Online on any site you want in those countries, make the delivery address for your order the Postbox courier address given to you for said specific country.
- wait for your shipping notification from the site you shopped from and then use the tracking number to fill out your parcel pre-alert on your Postbox courier profile so that they know your parcel is coming in.
- Once they receive your parcel they will let you know and send you a bill for the delivery cost to SA, you simple pay using Paypal and then sit back and wait. delivery takes 3-5 days.
It is really super easy to use and navigate and the site has loads of details and extra explanations in case you feel a bit lost. You can also email them if you have any questions or check on the site for a quick quote!
