Payment Information

Payment

Prices are displayed and transacted in Australian Dollars (AUD) and include the 10% Australian Goods and Services Tax (GST).  For international orders, GST will automatically be deducted from the purchase price when you type in your international postal address.

Any GST or VAT or similar importation tax that may apply to an import in the destination country is entirely at the purchaser’s expense and not our responsibility. The purchaser is responsible to identify any specific importation requirements (documentation, taxes, etc) and any costs associated with same are the responsibility of the purchaser.

We accept payment by American Express, Visa, MasterCard and PayPal only. Credit cards are debited for the purchase price plus a fixed price of AUD $20 for domestic postage and insurance or AUD $80 for international postage and insurance. 

Conversions into the purchaser’s own currency are conducted by the financial institution of the purchaser and final prices in the purchaser’s currency will vary according to the exchange rate on the day. Any fees or surcharges arising from the purchaser’s financial institution due to conversion from AUD to the purchaser’s currency are the purchaser’s responsibility.
