Pargo

Pargo Deliveries currently cost between R55 & R139, depending on the size of the item, to any Pargo Point.

What is Pargo

Pargo is a convenient delivery option that offers deliveries to pick-up points around the country. You can collect your parcels at the Pargo parcel points of your choice, when it suits you best. Pargo parcel points are established in well-known and trusted South African retail stores. All you have to do is collect the parcel, at a time that suits you.

How to Select Pargo as your Delivery Option

During checkout you select to use Pargo as your shipping method from the Delivery Options available. First enter your address, if you haven’t done so before. This allows the Pargo point selection to focus on points near your location. We recommend using a cellphone number as your telephone number, as Pargo will then be able to send you SMS notifications of your delivery.

When you select between the delivery options it will automatically update the shipping amount on your screen. When Pargo is selected a button ‘Select Pargo Point’ will appear to select the Pargo point you want your parcel delivered to. When you click the button a map will appear, showing the Pargo points nearest to your address (if Google is unable to determine your address from the checkout page it will request your current location). You can then select the point, either from a list next to the map, or on the map itself. Once you select a point, it will be stored on the address so in future it will automatically be the default selected point. Your shipping method will also be remembered.

How to Collect your Pargo Delivery

You will receive an SMS and/or email notification as soon as your parcel has been delivered to your chosen Pargo parcel point and is ready for collection. Normally delivery will take 2 days, dependent on the location of your Pargo point. You will need to bring your Green Barcoded ID Document and the Pargo Code, you received in your SMS and/or email notification, in order to collect your parcel. You have up to 14 Days to collect your parcel from your Pargo Point. Please note that many Pargo Points are open 24/7 but please check the opening times of your selected point on the Pargo website.,  http://pargo.co.za/
