Amazon, based in Seattle, Washington, is a multinational technology firm that is known mostly for providing e-commerce services. Online shopping has become a trend worldwide since it is convenient and has several other advantages. Like any other offline business, scammers have made people doubt the reliability of this online platform, and citizens cannot help but wonder, how reliable is amazon shipping to South Africa 2020? Here are answers that will help you understand how shopping online via this company works.
Does Amazon operate in South Africa? Yes, one can order from the e-commerce platform while in SA. However, the e-commerce company only ships specific goods to South Africa.
As such, when you create your account on Amazon, you need to fill in your South African address and that way the website will filter out only the products available for shipping to your country.
In the past, Amazon shipping to South Africa was conducted via third-party sellers willing to do so, and delivery was through the South African Post Service (SAPO). Currently, things have changed as one can purchase items directly from the firm's website and have them shipped to their physical address with ease.
The multinational company ships products internationally via the AmazonGlobal service. On this platform, one can see the products available for shipping in their country, the shipping costs, and fees which are dependent on the delivery address of the order.
