Payment must accompany your order. For your convenience I accept visa, mastercard, american express, cheque or postal order, paypal, eftpos or bank deposit, please read ordering information to find out more about shipping, ordering, payment details.
Currency / Exchange Rates
All prices are currently presented in Australian Dollars, however, where possible, I provide prices in the currency of the country in which you recieved you catalog. This is a fairly difficult and time consuming procedure so where there is price discrepancy or a fluctuation in exchange rates between currencies then the US Dollar currency should be used as a standard.
