Unfortunately because we are based in Australia, a small number of credit card companies impose a small "foreign transaction fee" on your purchase. This happens rarely, and if it does, it's usually only 1 or 2% and we're confident you will still be pleased with the total price of our products. If you are unsure whether your credit card company imposes such a fee, you may wish to contact them before you order. If your credit card company does impose a fee and you don't have other cards, you can avoid the fee by selecting the "pay with Paypal" option during the checkout process. You don't need to be a Paypal member, and Paypal allows payments with lots of different cards with no foreign transaction fee.
