Shipping / Delivery
Yes, we sure do! All international parcels are charged based on total shipping weight + region.

How much does it cost to ship outside Australia?
At the checkout, once you have selected your country as your shipping destination, you will be presented with all shipping options available and shipping costs. Information on the specific services will also be shown at checkout.
Whilst we try to provide our natural health products to many countries, sometimes due to a large number of fraudulent transactions, customs parcel rejections or high risk regions, we may reject an order and process a full refund. This is unfortunate but is the better option as we cannot guarrantee delivery.
Deliveries within Australia ARE NOT subject to import taxes/duties as we ship all orders from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
Deliveries Outside Australia
It is the responsibility of the customer to be aware of any additional customs restrictions, clearance fees, import duties and rejected delivery costs which may apply to the products you are purchasing.
Taxes/Import Duties may be imposed once a shipment reaches your country thus we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. We will not reimburse any charges which may be imposed.
We always declare correct order values. We clearly show the cost of goods and the cost of shipping for easy and accurate processing through customs.
The shipping fee on a returned parcel is non-refundable as this has already been paid to the courier. If your order is returned to us due to unpaid taxes / import duties, we will only reimburse the total amount paid for the products if they return in a saleable condition. We cannot reimburse any costs you have paid for shipping.
If you have any queries regarding customs information please contact your local office.
