Pricing & Payment

Why should I buy from Networks for Learning?

Networks for Learning Africa has acted in partnership with NEW IT Ltd to bring the SheevaPlug to Africa. Up until now, the only way that African Customers could purchase a SheevaPlug was by importing from the U.S.A- An expensive process.  We are exclusive distributors of the SheevaPlug in Africa.

Our shop prices include VAT, and if you would like a personalised quote (there are many choices of shipping method, not all the options are listed on our shop site), please drop a line to and tell us the quantity you are interested in purchasing, and the country to which you would like your SheevaPlug(s) delivered.

In addition, Networks for Learning is adding value to the product:

We are providing a support site where you can ask for advice with your SheevaPlug, and discuss projects that you would like us to support.

We also offer configuration options for your plug, a choice of OS on an SD card, and in time we are looking to supply a choice of preinstalled applications, so that when your purchase arrives, it is already pre-configured with particular applications. The forum will be a good place for us all to gauge the popularity of particular features (the SheevaPlug is customisable in so many ways, we can't give all the possibilities here), so please visit the forum and join in.

We will test the compatibility of some of the most common accessories that you might like to connect to your SheevaPlug - for instance USB wireless sticks - and help you configure them. We're looking in to providing alternative boot options (i.e. SD card or USB stick) at the time of purchase, but for now we know there is plenty of information on these topics online.

So, for the moment, if you can see the potential of owning a SheevaPlug, and you feel confident that you can configure it to run useful applications - with or without our help - please compare our prices with the costs of importing.
