Not a good thing for South Africa
Rampant theft by Post Office workers has infuriated internet retailing giant Amazon so much that it will no longer send goods to South Africa by post, Business Day has reported.
Anyone wanting to order directly from the US-based website must now pay for a private courier service adding about R420 (approx. US $50) to the price of a DVD.
No one from the Post Office would comment.
No other African country’s postal service had been blacklisted by Amazon, Business Day said. – Sapa
