The South African Post Office has recently updated their fees for the year 2020. However, these fees are valid from 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020. The postal rates include all types of mailing, postcards ratings, Stamps, Direct Mail, etc.

SAPO offers Domestic Services such as ordinary letter mail and Fast Mail services. The ordinary letter mail is the standard postal service offered by SAPO (South African Post Office) and it is usually a day longer than Fast mail service.

Fast Mail is a SAPO letter service with a one-day delivery standard in the same city or town – it may take longer for destinations outside your perimeter.
