Hi , Live in South Africa and would like to buy a goPro on this website.

It says i will receive it within 3 days. Is that correct and would i be paying import taxes?

Re: 3 days delivery, Import taxes? South Africa.

Hello @megadive32821

 

The shipping duration is based on when the package is ships out of the warehouse, and not the time when the package is ordered. Please consider this when counting he 3-day shipment. 

The VAT is not included in the item price for South Africa. According to our Shipping Policy, you will be liable for VAT upon delivery. You can click on the link to learn more about this. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius
