International Online Shopping made easy – Aramex Global Shopper

PicsArt_06-20-07.17.25[1]Shopping online can be very frustrating, when companies don’t ship to your country, or shipping fees are ridiculously high. Let’s be honest some third party sellers retail items for almost triple the amount of the actual price. I mean , how many times have we longed for international brands but are freaked out by the daunting process of doing so or the uncertainty of the actual cost of getting your item shipped to your door?

Well allow me to introduce you to Aramex Global Shopper…

Aramex Global Shopper is a shipping service that allows you to shop anywhere  and everywhere . The service is offered to anyone from South Africa, Botswana or Kenya. All you have to do is register online for an Aramex Global Shopper lifetime membership on their website , which costs only R150.00, and that’s not even the best part. If you are a FNB (First National Bank) cardholder, you can sign up for free. Yes that’s right…..FREE!

To sign up for a FREE lifetime membership account using your FNB card;

  • Log on to and click “Sign up”
  • Fill in your personal details, accept terms and conditions and click “Next”
  • Fill in shipping details and click “Next”
  • Fill in your payment details and enter your promo code to complete the sign up for FREE and then click “Checkout”
  • PROMO CODE: Your personal promo code is made up of the first 6 digits of the number shown on any of your FNB cards followed by the word SAVE e.g. 123456SAVE

Once you have registered you will get 24 personalised physical addresses that you can use to shop all around the world, and they will deliver to your door at a reasonable shipping rate.
