At the time of writing this article, the answer to that question is NO because Ifixit USA store only ships to specific parts of the world and not South Africa.
Things may have changed so I advise you to check Ifixit website’s shipping policy page for the latest information regarding international shipping policies.
If you confirm that Ifixit does not ship internationally to where you are in South Africa, continue to read this article because I have a solution for you!
