Sending gifts and other items to friends and family around South Africa can be a pricey and unreliable affair. Luckily for those of us looking for an alternative, Pep Stores has partnered with PAXI, a package service that allows you to send, collect and return parcels to various collection points around the country. The best part? It’s totally affordable with standard parcel pricing starting at just R59.95!
Easy, convenient, affordable, and reliable, PAXI is the ideal way to send gifts, products and documents between any two Pep and Shoe City collection points in South Africa. All you have to do is go to your nearest Pep or Shoe City PAXI point; select and pay for a bag size and service type; pack and seal your goods and hand it to the store assistant. Visit the PAXI website here.
Once handed over to the Pep store assistant, your package will then be registered on PAXI, you can select its destination. You’ll immediately receive an SMS when the parcel is logged and again once the parcel arrives at your chosen collection point. You’ll also get SMS notifications along the way to let you know when your parcel leaves it destination, and you can track your parcel on the PAXI website.
What’s more, PAXI also offers a free service for UNISA students to send through a hard copy of assignments to the university. All it requires is finishing your assignment two weeks before it’s due (to ensure it’ll be delivered on time); taking it to your closest PAXI point and sending it off. You’ll get an SMS when your assignment gets delivered and you can also track it on the PAXI website.
