Ledger Nano S - Whats the best deal?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Option 1:

Takealot for around R1680

Option 2:
From their site for R976 + customs/import (https://shop.ledger.com/products/ledger-nano-s)
Free shipping from DHL (3 business days)

Question:
Does anyone know what the import costs will be payable on this?
Read around that in SA it could be around 15% VAT and 10% Duty = +25% (total costs R1220)

Are there other costs?

 

If R1220 is the case it's a way better deal to buy direct plus you can choose your Nano S color (I want Transparent 🙂)

Also, keep in mind Takealot is just a glorified reseller portal, so that guy selling the ledger on Takealot is probably buying it directly from Ledger and adding the markup.

 

I have ordered ledgers before without paying duty at customs so you might get lucky.

I have ordered single units as replacements which came without having to pay extra duties. Buying bulk means you definitely have to pay the duties, and also the fee to the courier company to 'process' your order and delivery. I am out of stock of Ledger Nano S devices and most likely not ordering bulk again, unless I can make it worth while.
Bulk orders are not priority to them, so they sometimes take months to arrive, while the price of bitcoin changes drastically during that time period, which means your profit can disappear completely.

For the end user, its faster and cheaper to just order directly from Ledger now, especially since they added free shipping for small orders to South Africa, and you might not need to pay duties.

Bulk orders you still need to pay for shipping, so that is additional cost for resellers too. The time, expenses, and possibility of losing money means its just better to refer customers to them directly.

So DHL called me and said I have to pay 😞  Extra costs were a total of R312.
Total cost for Ledger Nano S = R1288.

I'll take it.

Cheers guys!
