Certain countries do not assess duties and taxes on shipments that fall below a designated "de minimis value".
South Africa does not have a de minimis value, so you are responsible to pay ZA duties and taxes on your imported items.
Delivery Duty Paid Options: For eligible shipments, MyUS offers the option to send shipments Delivery Duties Paid (DDP). This means you can pay for applicable duties directly to MyUS when you submit a ship request, rather than paying them in your country after they arrive. When this service is selected in your online account or shipping request, you can pay for any duties in one simple payment, along with your shipping costs. This streamlines the delivery process so you can cover all your costs in one simple payment, and MyUS guarantees your payment amount.
If any of your items arrive at the MyUS shipping center damaged, we'll notify you immediately and help you return them, so you can avoid paying shipping and ZA taxes on those items.
