All shipments UNDER NZ $1,000 (about $930 Australian) for our ‘Made in Australia’ goods are NZ customs and GST free. There are no import costs payable.

If you still don’t get a good result after trialling any product advice we give, we’ll give you a return authority reference under our 1-Year Satisfaction Guarantee.
