Currency, Taxes and Duty
Note that all product prices indicated and payments made on the Online store site are in US Dollar currency.
Orders to countries outside the Australia and the USA may be subject to import taxes and/or duties, which are applied when your package reaches your country. Your order is shipped on a DDU (delivery duty unpaid) basis. We are unable to estimate the amount of duties and taxes your package will incur as these charges are imposed directly by your local customs. Payment of these is necessary to release your order from customs. For more information, contact your local customs office.
Because stock quantities are not updated in real time, on rare occasions items may be sold out at the time of purchase. If a sold-out item is purchased, you will be notified by email as soon as possible and offered a suitable replacement or a full refund.

Once your order has been placed, we are unable to make changes or cancel your order, however our usual returns process is available.

Shipments which are rejected by the receiver will result in the customer incurring redirection fees. On the instance that a shipment is rejected by the receiver, it is the customer’s responsibility to contact us to notify us of the situation.
