1. Payment in advance via PAYPAL or EFT. Orders will only be executed when money to cover the costs is received. Invoice will be supplied with confirmation of order.

2. Minimum order:

Plants = US$90
Seeds = US$100

3. Buyer must indicate how plants are to be dispatched.

a) By airmail: The cost of the postage is generally equal to the cost of the plants, unless heavy caudiciforme plants are ordered then the cost of the postage can be far more than the value of the plants - approximately 1.5 times the price of the plants.

Should only lighter plants e.g. stapeliads, conophytums or haworthias be ordered, the postage is approximately 1/3rd of the value of the order.

b) By airfreight: If the weight of the plants to be dispatched is likely to exceed 40 kg it is probably advantageous to send the plants by airfreight instead of airmail. In this case we can dispatch them “Airfreight Collect”. There will be a charge by the agent forwarding the consignment from S.A. and there is likely to be a similar charge levied by the agents at the airport on arrival.

c) Please add 30% for packing and postage. Minimum ZAR 400 for EMS parcels.

4. The cost of the phytosanitary certificate @ ZAR 530 per order.

5. A CITES PERMIT is needed for e.g. pachypodiums, euphorbias, anacampseros, aloes etc. @ ZAR 620.

6. Kindly note that the cost of the “Cites” certificate and the phytosanitary certificate plus the postage must be paid by us. When ordering, this amount must be added to the cost of the plants ordered.

7. Many succulent plants are extremely vulnerable to exposure to temperature changes and /or extended periods out of a growing medium. SHEILAM cannot be held responsible for loss of plants where there has been a delay in delivery of plants as can occur in transit or at customs or if the client fails to fetch the plants after clearance. It is most important to contact your customs if the plants are not delivered within 10 days. SHEILAM IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST PARCELS ONCE IT HAS REACHED THE COUNTRY OF DESTINATION.
