Yep. Our Zambian bank routing number is 6 digits long. You cannot link your Zambian bank account to paypal. You can, however, link your paypal account to your Zanaco visa card.

Mukuka,

Why not buy it right here in Zed if you are buying 1 laptop? You might save yourself some hidden costs - forex conversions, bank charges, shipping fees, tax, e.t.c.

And have you checked if the laptop can be shipped to you? The last time I checked, most ebay sellers don't ship to Africa.

To talk about ebay, amazon and other sellers not shipping to Africa, it can be very annoying especially when you really want the item badly ........... but there is a way round it. I have been buying items online for years now without having to worry about the shipping restrictions. All you need to do is rent a virtual US mailing address, buy your goods and have them shipped to the virtual address. Your packages can then be consolidated into one at a very small fee, and sent to your Zambian address using the courier company available to you. You pay for shipping. I use usa2me.com and my items are shipped by Fedex, but there are several other companies in the US offering a similar service. Just google virtual US address to check them out.

I hope my post will be of help to someone out there.

Mukuka,

Don't use Western Union. Too many con artists using this payment option.

Dear Mukuka,

Please contact Guy Scott the VP. I think he has a solution for you. He addressed your problem, the other day. Zambians who forget they are living in Zambia and try to adopt an american style of living. 9-digits, blah blah blah, the whole bit.

Ask Guy, you will see. He will give you a good pep talk and you will not entangle yourself in such a problem ever again.

I don't know if it's an official policy for ebay not to ship to Africa but many ebay sellers are definitely reluctant to ship to Africa. I think it all started with Nigerian scams. Things shipped to Nigeria almost never get to their right destination. Even with shipping insurance, etc. Nigeria is a black hole. Things disappear. Many sellers on ebay have been burned by Nigerian scams. So that has helped taint the entire continent.

April,
I was not aware that Mukondo Lungu was attempting to contain Guy. This sounds like juicy material. Can you please give me the lowdown on this piece of gossip?

I don't think Guy knows it all. Maybe he thinks he does but I don't think he does. Although he did address the issue of Zambians living here at home and wanting to have trends and lifestyles they copied in american movies or fashion magazines or hear-say from friends who vacationed abroad.

I think Guy was ticked off when he saw someone drive a luxury car and thought they could do just fine with a lesser car or a bicycle. To his credit, I once saw Guy on a bicycle, with my own eyes. It could have been a publicity stunt, but there he was on a bicycle with komboni kids cheering him on. I couldn't figure out what was with those komboni kids because when I'm riding my bike, I attract no such cheering.

Drubavina my friend, I hear you. This is not about giving anyone a hard time for no reason. It's just that Zanaco as a company is so so stupid and incompetent. Which only begs one question. Why do business with these crooks anyway?
