I am interested in buying this stuff for my kid who schools abroad. Regarding payment, i would prefer to pay with PayPal as i feel comfortable using PayPal for online transaction because of safety. It would be very helpful if you could help me ship it over to him. I would have make the process by myself but the fact that I am on a business trip out of the country presently makes it impossible for me to do so. I would add R600 to the money due to the cost of shipping internationally. If this works for you, get back to me with your PayPal email as i can send the funds now
