So a while back I told you about Aramex Global Shopper, if you missed how it works, read here! So basically, Aramex allows your to shop those covetable sites that don’t ship to S.A. I said I’d let you know how it went! I shopped 3 much needed coats/Jakcets for Dublin.
The preppy, A-Line Calvin Klein coat to meet moms for coffee or attend a first coffee meeting.
The run around Columbia rain jacket for trips to the park with Harry, walks in the country side etc!
And the every day padded BCBGMAXAZRIA Parka to fend off the cold!
So, my orders arrived within 2 days from Amazon.com (I chose the 2 day free shipping on the Amazon site) to my provided Aramex NYC address (You will be given an address closest to the country/store of purchases) – Then I received my Calvin Klein Coat & Parka within a week – straight to my door! (Very exciting!) The Columbia jacket got stuck at customs – so it took a bit longer – and I was whacked with a R400 charge. This however is S.A. law and out of Aramex’ hands. South Africa has a super hefty import duty on clothing to protect our textile industry. Anyway, it arrived straight to my door too, after I’d paid.
So – the process is simple and up to you whether you are prepared to pay customs charges – but the great thing is – when you really, really need those shoes, Aramex Global Shopper makes it possible, opening a world of brands and selection that was previously, out of reach!
