Do you have your eye on a gorgeous beauty or make-up product that is not available in South Africa? Worried about how you going to get the package to your door and the shipping costs? Worry no more, because Aramex Global Shopper has you covered. This means that you can now shop around the world hassle-free and at unbelievable shipping rates using your AGS forwarding addresses! Now you can keep up with the latest trends.
How it works
Sign up for a lifetime membership with Aramex Global Shopper.
Once registered, you will receive 17 physical forwarding addresses in New York, Ontario, London, Shanghai, Dubai, Mumbai, Istanbul, Hong Kong, Frankfurt, Milan, Paris, Bangkok, Malaysia, Seoul, Tokyo, Barcelona and Singapore.
Now that your AGS account is active, you can go to your favourite shopping website and add that product that you have had your eye on, to your shopping cart.
Upon checkout, you enter the AGS forwarding address in the country you are shopping online from.
Your shipment is now ready to be processed by Aramex and delivered to your country of residence within 3-6 business days, pending customs clearance.
You will receive an email once the shipment arrives at the AGS facility and you are now one step closer to receiving your order.
Once it leaves the AGS fulfillment Centre and makes its way to your home address, you will get notified via email that the ‘Pay Now’ and ‘Auto Pay’ features are available, allowing you to pay for your shipping fees online or automatically for added convenience! You can also pay for any Customs Duties and Taxes incurred along with the shipping fees when paying for packages via ‘Pay Now’ or ‘Auto Pay’.
The package is finally delivered by Aramex to you personally.
Aramex Global Shopper does not consolidate your shipments. Each shipment is processed separately.
All shipments require a Commercial Invoice in order to be processed at their international facilities. This invoice is also required to process clearance from Customs upon arrival in South Africa.
You can select to insure your shipments against damage in transit or loss, with AGS Protect. Shipments with an invoice value of below USD 100 are insured at no additional cost. For shipments above USD 100 and up to USD 2500, this service offers full compensation equal to the package’s invoice value at an additional $1 per $100 shipment value.

I have personally used Aramex and I can vouch for their incredible service and timeous deliveries. In fact my package from the United States was delivered to me in under 2 weeks time – now that is what I call service. I didnt pay any customs as my package was of a low value so that was a bonus for me. Please note that customs varies on the products you purchase and the value. Aramex is so efficient and I have recommended their services to many people as they are always on the other end striving for customer satisfaction, which is what I love about any company.
I have made purchases from the United States and London, not using Aramex and it was the worst decision I ever made. My makeup brush from the US took over 3 months to get to me in South Africa and my products from London has never arrived, even until now, almost 4 months later – yes you read right – 4 months later. I promised that I will never use another free international shipping offer from any Cosmetic company because your products take forever to get to you or you will never receive them, as they keep getting lost in the post.
Aramex Global Shopper has made my life so easy and I know of many people including bloggers who will only use this service for all their international shipping.
