Amazon Prime Day: The Best Way for South Africans to Enjoy the Deals

Indulge in the international sale of the month thanks to Postbox Courier.




Down here in the Republic, we tend to enjoy and benefit from most of the international sale bonanzas, but there’s always one that eluded us: Amazon Prime Day.

The reason being is that while Amazon does ship the odd product to South Africa, the bulk of their offerings are unavailable to us, most notably the Amazon Prime Day deals, which are often ridiculously good discounts. Just look at some of these:

But while these deals were previously inaccessible to us, times have changed.

Postbox Courier, a South African service run by South Africans for South Africans, is the magic tunnel, of sorts, to grant us access to anything and everything formerly unavailable in SA, allowing you to shop on Amazon Prime Day, taking place 12-13 July.

So how does it work exactly? Using the service is super simple – you simply visit the Postbox Courier website and register. Registering is FREE, quick and easy and once you’ve registered you’ll get your very own delivery address in the US, UK, Hong Kong, and Australia.

All you need to do is use the assigned address of their US, UK, or other region depots, and once your items arrive there, they’ll do the rest of the work for you and ensure your products arrive on your doorstep in South Africa.

Furthermore, you can even consolidate multiple orders into a single box, and ship one parcel instead of two or three. And this is because parcel-forwarding companies often have local and international courier partners, allowing for the best rates for express shipping, something individual shops won’t be able to offer you.

Thanks to Parcel Forwarding Services, shoppers now have options, but finding a company that you can trust is the challenge. There are a lot of options available online, but as most online shoppers know, not everybody is trustworthy. Thankfully, Postbox Courier is not only a local South African company, but we’ve put them to the test!

The even better news is that registering with Postbox Courier is FREE, quick and easy and once you’ve registered you’ll get your very own delivery address in the UK, Hong Kong, US and Australia.

Plus, if you’re not sure what the cost will be to import you can just drop them an email at with your wishlist and they will calculate how much you will have to pay in import charges and courier fees – this will help you decide on whether or not to purchase.
