Not working with the mi band 3 which is odd. I added a similar valued item and I get the SA express option. Seems to be available on selected items only.

So no movement since Monday. I don't see the 7 business days being a reality:

According to a posts on MYBB it's from a courier company based in JHB East.
I'm unsure exactly what is meant by the customs bit-I doubt you can avoid that??
I've placed an order for 2 covers for a OnePlus 6 which came to R190 all inclusive yesterday. Will see how long it will take once "shipped"
Yes,the import tariff included if you choose South Africa express.

I can't see how it would be possible to avoid customs, but either way, still a great shipping price if it arrives in a week
The newest shipping —— South Africa express include import duty,rest assured please.

I think I will actually be more keen to order now with that piece of mind option, but will await reviews of this method from users who do frequently purchase from Gearbest. Looking forward to being able to utilize a South African directed option. Nice to see Gearbest is trying to accommodate us!
Yeah,we are trying our best to provide the best service.;)
