Halo all,

Does anybody know of an alternative method for buying Canonical Products? I really want to buy an Ubuntu mug. I'm from South Africa, so the mug would cost me about R91.50. Which is ok, but shipping would cost me more than R1000.. This is ridiculous.

Canonical should open a store in South Africa! ;)

Thanks!

If you look at the bottom of the Canonical store page, you'll see that the store is run by Merchandise Mania (http://www.merchandisemania.co.uk/), contact them to see if they have a store closer to you.

What I did to maximize bang for buck as I am in the UAE (but also a South African BTW) was to buy many things... so perhaps if enough people from ZA chime in together you could make it worth your while (keeping in mind best practises about giving money and information to strangers and all that ;)).

Good to see there are a couple of South Africans here :D

I'll have a look and see if there is enough interest for something like you suggested!

On IRC there is a ZA channel - #ubuntu-za many people hang out there... maybe you could get some of them to join in too ;)

Glad to see so many South African Ubuntu fans!

LOL got that out of my system..

I've done some digging, you can find Ubuntu mugs on other sites, where the shippings seems a lot cheaper, though the mug's design is not the same:

Those Canonical guys are amazing! I actually ordered 6 pieces of Ubuntu stickers but they threw in like 18 sticker sheets.
