Hi everyone I'm also new to dropshipping and affiliate marketing in South Africa. (KZN North Coast). Stumbled upon this thread looking for some answers, but found even more questions!
ShingiChimuti Have you managed to find out anything about customs/duties with regard to dropshipping in South Africa? This is the biggest question unanswered for me, and one of the main reasons I haven't started a dropshipping business yet.
@Mufasa Congratulations on getting started with your first ecommerce venture! I hope it has been going well. There are many obstacles, especially at the beginning. Did you manage to find any information on the API section or setting up taxes? Would be happy to share some advice/tools as a fellow beginner, however I can't help with those questions!
I'd very much like to connect with other affiliate marketers and dropshippers and discuss how we can build a network of support for beginners in South Africa. I believe it's a win-win that by providing a platform of locally relevant support we can boost ecommerce industry in SA, and give back to communities in the process!
