These fees only apply if you use our myEU Box in Germany.
They do NOT apply for the world wide shipping service.
Our aim is to offer a simple, enjoyable customer experience with a transparent fee structure - without surprises, small print and minimized red tape.
As most of our logistics costs incur in Germany, all handling fees are priced in Euro and marked out in South African Rand according to daily updated exchange rates. All handling fees will be charged when a shipment is created and paid by you, the exchange rate of that particular day will be applied as published below on this webside. All payments are processed in South African Rand and include South African VAT.
Due to the high shipment volumes in our logistics center, we are able to offer international shipping rates with up to 70% discount compared to normal retail prices. When you request shipping quotes on this website we obtain realtime shipping rates from our logistic partners, a shipment surcharge as per your monthly subscription plan will then be added to the myEU fees.
Should you or your business be interested in better rates & conditions for higher shipping volumes - please contact us and let's have a chat.
