      I’ve used Mall for Africa and they work fine 4 me… Lighter items take less time with them but as always, the more the items shipped, the cheaper the spread shipping cost

      1. Valentine

        how can a company like eBay be sued or takento court if you are from countries like Nigeria or Ghana?

        1. King

          MyUs and Mall for Africa are both good, but I actually just tried out a company called Transthat NG for making purchases from both the US and UK last month.
          They delivered both my items to Nigeria for only N9,000 within 2weeks; the only thing was that I had to go pick up the items at their office. I would strongly recommend them too.

          1. David

            Concerning the Mall of Africa. Its asked for a Referrers email, I wanna try it out and how do I get to you?
