Shipping Rates to Africa

The cost to ship items from each product category to Africa varies by item, shipment and shipping option.

Amazon works closely with its carriers to provide a competitive shipping experience for our customers. Exact shipping charges are determined at the time of checkout based on the number of items, item type, weight and volume of all the items in the cart, but basic guidelines for estimating shipping costs are provided below for your reference.

The total shipping cost is calculated by adding the "Per Shipment" cost and the "Per Item" cost. The "Per Item" cost may be based on the number of items, the weight, or volume (referred to as the dimensional weight) of each package. "Per Item" costs listed below as applying per pound apply to actual weight and dimensional weight.

Important: Items marked with a * may also be subject to additional shipping charges. See the Surcharge Chart for Heavy or Bulky Media below.
