1) How does this work?
With the proliferation of the Internet as a medium to do business - many South
Africans have been browsing the Internet searching for items they wish to
purchase. Many of the items individuals desire are found on web sites not
located within South Africa. Upon attempting to purchase from these sites,
individuals soon discover that the majority of sites are not willing to ship
products to South Africa.
www.wantitall.co.za was therefore born from the needs of South Africans
wanting to purchase items from abroad. We facilitate the process of purchasing
items off the internet on behalf of customers and then shipping the requested
items to the customer.
www.wantitall.co.za therefore handles all the purchasing, shipping, and
