Postage (SA Postal Service)

For South African orders there is an additional charge of R65.00 per book for packaging, insurance and postage (PIP). (Not recommended)

Courier Service I'm trying a new courier service which works out a bit less expensive for local deliveries. (See below)

To have 1-3 books packaged and couriered to the door:

LOCAL (Pietermaritzburg and Durban) add R66.00

Other areas of South Africa add R110.00

For PostNet to PostNet, there will be an additional charge of R110 for 1-3 books

For orders from other countries in Southern Africa (Zimbabwe, Zambia, etc.) there is unfortunately an additional charge of R280.00 per book for packaging and airmail postage.  I am looking for other options.
