Shipping & Returns
INTERNATIONAL GROCERIES delivers anywhere in Australia and also accepts International orders.
Delivery Method (Australia Only)
We use a combination of Australia Post and Courier depending on your location. If you select to ship your item to a PO Box we can only use Australia Post. Please note that all shipping cost on the website is calculated based on Australia Post eParcel rate - (Defaults to the highest possible rate), however before final shipment, the postage charged will be reviewed and adjusted accordingly. We will issue you with a refund or a store credit for the excess postage paid. This store credit can be used to offset against your next order.
If the calculated freight seems unexpectedly high please contact us and we will do a manual calculation and quote the actual postage. Be aware that all freight is calculated on cubic measurements whether it be post office or courier, so an item may be light in weight but could be large in size and freight will be calculated accordingly. If you want to make the most of your postage charge you may find that adding another item will not incur any extra charges due to weight breaks.
Delivery Method (International)
For International Orders the postage cost is for "Standard Air Mail (With Tracking)". For order under 2kg you will also have the option to choose "Economy Air (Tracking Services is Not Available). For orders over 20kg, please contact us for a custom shipping quote.
Each country has specific regulations about what can (and can't) be delivered. Please note - it is your responsibility to ensure that all items you order from us comply with your countries customs regulations. Before ordering please check for details on what items your country prohibits.
