Bushveldlabs is an online retail store that sells and supports a variety of open source hardware products that enable customers to realise their ideas. We started out being interested in microcontrollers and art festivals but found that a lot of the kit we were looking for was not available to u. We soon found that many others were in the same boat so we decided that if we are going to get things we like we should grant the same to the ones around us.
We are based in Mnandi midway between Centurion and Midrand in Gauteng, South Africa

Our preferred option is delivery to your door. This is the most convenient method as you do not need to go to a post office or stand in long queues. We can also ship to a PO box if you prefer.
You may collect your order at House4Hack gatherings in Centurion on Tuesday evenings ( just let us know to bring your parcel when you select your shipping preference when you check out.
We prefer to ship domestic and international packages with Aramex, so you will get a tracking number
We try to dispatch paid orders as fast as possible. Sometimes funds can take up to a day to clear, so we reserve the right to wait until it’s cleared before we send your goods. Once dispatched, delivery can take up to 2 business days, but most orders will be delivered on the next business day after they are dispatched. Outlying areas generally take an extra day or two, depending on where it is going to. We do our best to get your parcel to you as soon as possible but we are unfortunately at the mercy of nature,traffic and postal strikes.
We accept PayPal, EFT, Credit Card, Debit Card . We use a secure card processing portal so all of your details are safe
