Prices are good but I've learnt the painful way that you will get nailed 45% plus vat,plus god knows what else they add on.

I've ordered a fair amount of clothes and have come to realise that unless the price is that good with all the extra fees then it's worth it. However prepare yourself for a great deal of extra fees.

Sometimes you get lucky and they don't charge the 40% duty. A friend of a friend ordered a pair of pant and a camelbak and they just charged a R15 handling fee.

When placing the order, put the clothing inbetween the other spares. They sometimes only read the beginning and end of an invoice and the clothing slips through untaxed. The way it's on the checkout is the way it's on the invoice they attaches.

:lol: Nooo! But seriously no!

 

If they do chuck in one of those powerbalance thingies, please feel free to keep it. Sharing between everyone on the order will unbalance the equation and have us fall off the waterwagon!

 

Sine Zork doesn't know how the search function works, here is the pinned thread on import duties https://community.bikehub.co.za/topic/75887-import-duties-on-cycling-goods/

OK, on a serious note. Zork - CRC's turnover is in the region of £200m (if I remember correctly). They are probably one of the biggest retailers in cycling. Order and you will have your goods in record time and save a wad of cash.

 

Remember , the bigger your order, the more you save, so technically you can save yourself into bankruptcy
