The shipping costs on EcoDepot work a little differently to standard South African online shops because we’re a marketplace with multiple South African based suppliers that sell directly to you. This is why we are able to negotiate the best prices.
The total shipping cost calculation is worked out on how many products you have in your cart from different suppliers around the country.
Example 1: you order products from 1 supplier
You live in Cape Town and order different products valued at R1000 from a single supplier based in Johannesburg. The shipping cost is R75, your total amount to pay is R1000 + R75 = R1075.
Example 2: you order products from 2 different suppliers
You live in Cape Town and order different products valued at R1000 from a supplier in Johannesburg and other products valued at R2000 from a supplier in Durban.
The shipping cost from Johannesburg is R75 and the shipping cost from Durban is R85.
Your total amount to pay is (R1000 + R75) + (R2000 + R85) = R3160.
