Hi All,

Apologies in advance if this is the wrong place to post but does anyone know whether there is an "easier" way to purchase from Aliexpress?

Thanks,

From time to time, in addition to the monthly blog posts, I'll be personally writing another piece that should give a bit more insight into how we run things.

The first one is a biggie and our most frequent request by a long shot... Price breakdowns on our quotes:

"Exciting" news I haven't shared, we've just past another year of operation so I took a look at our calculations, apparently I do that.

Have been able to tighten up the buffers put in place against exchange rate fluctuations as well as pass on our decreased insurance premium, orders should now be slightly cheaper! It's not a massive saving but thought I would pass it on anyway.

Quick Estimate on the site hasn't been updated yet, need to see how this works first, after getting a ballpark with that you can just submit if you're interested.

It's Prime Day!!!!

Starting at 9pm tonight SA time, although the amazon devices(Echo, Fire TV etc etc) are already live.

amazon Prime Day

Products with limited stock or time on special cannot be ordered unfortunately, quoting/invoicing/payment takes too long, however most items will be available.
Immediate EFT or credit card payment will be required to take advantage of the specials.
All quotes requested this evening will be replied to tomorrow morning, we'll get back to you asap.

Happy shopping!

EDIT: rather use the website than PM's, we'll be able to get back to you sooner: https://www.scottshipping.co.za/quick-estimate/

Cos uncle Jeff needs more of your money!

As an interesting side note, 19 months after I started using my current bank card at every e-tailer on the planet(that's correct, we double checked) it finally got cloned somewhere. Got a strange transaction for R1.93 last night followed by 2 requests for an OTP for EUR2112! Luckily they were stupid and attempted to use the card at a secure retailer because that would've hurt!

Always knew this day was coming so services will not be impacted, happy shopping!

EDIT: link is to Linus Tech Tips showcasing a few deals, this forum doesn't allow video embedding apparently.
