So my previous graphic designer dissapeared on me which forced a re-branding by the star team behind the website:







It should be populated across everything except the site now.

The new logo is definitely an improvement.

Thanks George!

In other news, to help out with this forex rate volatility we've tightened up a few margins to absorb some of the cost.

Right, Black Friday is approaching so we're likely to be inundated... I'd therefore like to ask all members a favour, please please please use the "Quick Estimate" to generate a quote rather than emailing in. This form is accurate, it pulls from the same back end as our quotes, if the data input is correct the total will be the same.

Link: https://www.scottshipping.co.za/quick-estimate/

Some tips on the fields:

Purchase Price:
Please check if there's sales tax applied, this is especially common for items sourced in the EU, sometimes this is only added at the final step of check-out

Shipping Cost (country of origin):
This is the field most entered wrongly, it's simply the cost of local delivery in the country of origin. So if the item is sourced in the US it'll be delivery to New York, in the UK it'll be delivery to London etc.

Currency:
Only the currencies listed are supported on the quick estimate, if you leave dollars selected and put a in the text field the estimate will just fail.

Item Category:
This determines duty percentage, so using the wrong one will mess up the final number. Please note that "Other" is no guarantee that the item will not have duties applied, it's just impossible to add every item to the site.

Weight (in kg):
Remember to use the shipping weight and not the item weight, a laptop is not 1.2kg to ship :)

If the total is acceptable you can submit directly from this page to us, we'll confirm and take it from there. This should ensure that the responses are as quick and accurate as possible.

For time limited specials payment via instant EFT or cards will be required. We can't accept responsibility for an item selling out, you will of course be refunded in full if that happens.

Hi all, just a reminder on the above! I dunno how mad things will get on Friday so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Well that was entertaining to say the least, thanks for all the orders! Time to do it all again today, remember it's Cyber Monday!!!

SA retailers haven't quite caught on to this but there are insane deals available internationally so you know what to do!

Right next up, the time we've all been dreading, Xmas shopping!!!!! Now as men I know this goes against our rules of existence but if you want goodies through us you've gotta plan ahead.

Orders placed on or before 1 Dec will be delivered before Christmas
Orders placed on or before 8 Dec in the US/UK/EU will be delivered before Xmas, from China etc it's touch and go as it takes a while for orders from there to be delivered to my couriers.
Orders placed after 8 Dec will likely not be delivered before the big day.

As always delivery times are an estimate, things can and do go wrong, if they do we'll supply an IOU card to present to the unlucky recipient :)

We will be CLOSED from the 22nd to the 26th(TBC), no quotes, updates or orders will be processed. The rest of the time will be business as usual, delivery times will be slightly extended though due to holidays and general slowness of everything in Dec.
