Yes! We are in the process of excluding all shipping methods except for FED EX or UPS to South Africa. Unfortunately, we have not had a single shipment that has made it last year or this year to our poor customers. Your forum post is quite timely. I’m in the process of reshipping 5 South Africa orders today on our tab using FED EX.
This method of shipment is unfortunately a little pricey. It would be ideal for you to contact me directly so I can consolidate you and your colleague’s orders into a single package. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. We try to keep our international shipping rate to a flat $17.95 even though we usually send the items USPS International priority, which costs $55 on average. But with this service, nothing is getting there, and we are in the process of changing our policy.
Sending a single unit FED EX costs $125 dollars for economy service and guaranteed delivery in 8 days. However, the minimum weight we must adhere to gives us some breathing room. For this cost, we could theoretically send 4 kits vs. 1.
