Our website contains unlisted therapeutic goods and therapeutic claims which have not been evaluated or endorsed by the Australian Government. Individuals can legally source and import unlisted therapeutic goods for personal use under the Personal Importation Scheme pursuant to section 18(1) of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 and regulation 12(1) and item 1 of schedule 5 of the Therapeutic Goods Regulations 1990. Before ordering therapeutic products from this site, please note the conditions below, and the following advice from the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA): http://www.tga.gov.au/consumers/information-online-internet.htm. We recommend that you consult a health professional before using any health product. This is particularly important in the case of any pre-existing medical condition.
Personal importation occurs when an individual arranges, from within Australia, for a therapeutic good to be sent to them from an overseas supplier or family/friend, and the goods are to be used by that individual or a member of his/her immediate family and are not sold or supplied to any other person.
Therapeutic goods imported under the Personal Importation Scheme do not need to be listed in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods for supply in Australia. Under the Personal Importation Scheme, individuals may import 3 months supply of unapproved therapeutic goods into Australia without any approval from the TGA provided that:
• the goods are for the treatment of the individual or the treatment of their immediate family
• they do not supply (sell or give) the medicine to any other person
• where possible, the medicines or medical devices are kept in their original packaging with any dispensing labels intact
• the goods are not restricted under Australian Customs controls or quarantine rules and the goods do not contain a controlled substance
• the goods are not injections that contain material of human or animal origin (except insulin)
• the total quantity of the goods imported within a 12 month period does not exceed 15 months supply of the goods (for medicines, at the maximum dose recommended by the manufacturer)
• if the goods are medicines in Schedule 4 or 8 of the Poisons Standard or a prescription from an Australian-registered medical practitioner is held for the medicines
Under the Personal Importation Scheme, it is the responsibility of individuals wishing to arrange personal importation of unapproved therapeutic goods to ensure they have complied with all relevant Commonwealth and State/or Territory laws.

Accuracy of information
We aim to list current and accurate product information at all times. However it is possible that errors may occur. To the fullest extent permitted by law, HealthPost does not accept any liability for any damage which may directly or indirectly result from any advice, opinion, information, representation or omission, whether negligent or otherwise, contained on our website.
The information shared regarding products, their specialties, and assurances relating to our Better Choices Promise are compiled with care and attention. However the accuracy relies on correct information and transparency from our supplier partners. We have strict guidelines that we communicate to our suppliers but subject to our obligations required by law, are not responsible if supplier information is revealed to be incorrect.
Please be aware that the ingredients in our products may change or vary from time to time. We rely on our suppliers to tell us if they make any changes to these, and this may take a few days to update on our site. We recommend you refer to the ingredient list on the product package you receive for the most up to date list of ingredients. We also recommend you review product ingredients when making a repeat order, as ingredients may change without this visually being obvious on our site, or on the front of product packaging.
The prices displayed on www.healtpost.com.au are quoted in AU dollars and are inclusive of Australian GST. Prices on www.healthpost.com.au are determined by taking New Zealand prices and converting these to Australian dollars, after which Australian GST is added.
Recommended Retail Prices (RRP) displayed on www.healthpost.com.au are the New Zealand RRPs as provided to us by our suppliers, and converted into Australian dollars. Savings prices displayed are calculated off the Recommended Retail Price. These savings may not reflect our normal price, as we do not usually sell at the RRP.
All prices on www.healthpost.com.au are updated constantly as the exchange rate moves.
Sales to customers outside of Australia may be subject to the payment of taxes and charges in their country. These will typically be payable by you before the package is able to be released from customs or your countries postal services provider. As these charges are outside of our control, HealthPost accept no liability for the advance notice or payment of any such charges levied by your countries customs, import or postal authorities.
Prices for the products and services listed on the site are subject to change without any notice. We do our best to provide accurate pricing information but errors can occur from time to time. We have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for products incorrectly priced.
Product availability & rain checks
Product availability is subject to change without notice. Whenever possible, product out of stocks are clearly highlighted on the site - you can choose to receive an email notifying you when a specific product is back in stock. HealthPost cannot offer rain checks or extend a discount to an out of stock product.
All special offers and promotions are offered strictly only while stocks last and only for the period of the promotion. Promotional pricing or offers may be withdrawn at any time without notice once available stock is exhausted. HealthPost may choose to end a promotion early for any reason. In this scenario, no rain checks will be given. Promotional expiry dates and times are listed as Australian standard time (unless otherwise stated).
From time to time we may run short, specific price promotions without explicit promotion expiry dates in order to clear out stock or achieve other short term business objectives.
Product expiry dates
Most products supplied to you will include an expiry date which will vary depending on the product. Our policy is to not dispatch any product within three months of its expiry date, unless otherwise stated on the product page or where the product is sold or as part of a clearance promotion around the sale of a product with a shorter expiry term.
Please read our payment FAQs for everything you need to know about paying for your HealthPost products and services.
Orders will not be dispatched until satisfactory payment has been received by HealthPost or any suspected fraud has been investigated. An order or transaction is not complete until products are dispatched. HealthPost can refuse or cancel any order at its discretion and refund payment.
HealthPost reserves the right to refuse to deliver any products ordered for any reason, including without limitation, unavailability of stock or a decision by HealthPost to no longer sell a product. A refund will be given if payment has been accepted prior to any of these reasons.
AfterPay is a payment option that allows customers to pay in instalments over time. This payment option is only available to customers shopping in Australia and New Zealand. On choosing AfterPay as a payment option, customers enter into a contract directly with AfterPay. Please read everything you need to know about this service, including the refund process and future liabilities from AfterPay for any products returned to HealthPost.
Returns & Cancellation
If you change your mind about an order, we can cancel and refund a submitted order for you as long as it has not been dispatched. Please make sure you contact us with your order details as soon as possible. Unwanted products can also be returned for a refund within 30 days of purchase as long as they are in re-saleable condition (unopened, with undamaged packaging). Please refer to our Returns FAQs for information on how to do this.
If you order a durable product from us, and find it to be faulty after a short period of use please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help you reach a solution.
HealthPost operates a spend and earn Rewards Programme. For every $20 spent, customers will earn $1 back in “Rewards” to use as a discount future orders. Your Rewards value will always be communicated as a dollar amount, that is available to use as a discount on future orders (so long as the future order is completed before the Rewards expire).
Rewards are valid for 180 days from the date of order.
HealthPost Rewards are not transferable for cash under any circumstances. HealthPost Rewards must be selected at checkout for the Rewards discount to be applied. Rewards cannot be applied to an order after it has been placed. For more info, please read our Rewards FAQs.
You can see your Rewards balance in My Account on our website, in the header on our site, and in the header of most emails we send you. HealthPost cannot return any Rewards value which is not used as a discount after its expiry date. Please make sure that you are subscribed to our Rewards reminder emails so that we can communicate any upcoming Reward expiries.
HealthPost will revoke Rewards that have been earned on orders that are subsequently returned or cancelled. If a customer has redeemed their Rewards earned on that order before they are revoked, HealthPost will apply a negative balance. Any new Rewards earned will clear this negative balance, before any new Rewards will be generated.
Rewards redeemed will not be reinstated where an order is cancelled due to failure to complete payment, an order is cancelled prior to dispatch or for items returned from a dispatched order.
HealthPost can choose to make changes to our Rewards Programme at any time. HealthPost Rewards are unsecured and replacement or transferrable items of similar value will be not given in the event HealthPost ceases trading due to liquidation, sale or some other business event.
HealthPost reserve the right to edit customer Rewards balances without notification or explanation in the event that we have a genuine reason to believe that Rewards have not been accrued correctly, and/or have been accrued in a way that is not in accordance with the intended use of the Rewards programme.
HealthPost has a number of ways a customer can earn more Rewards. Specific terms and conditions apply to these promotions as follows:
HealthPost may, at its discretion, choose to offer discount promo codes to certain customers from time to time. Each promo code will have a clear expiry date and conditions for use. Promo codes cannot be exchanged or the value used for sales that do not meet the promo code conditions. No rain checks will be offered for promotions using a promo code where the product is out of stock.
The following general terms and conditions apply to all promo code promotions, unless stated otherwise in the specific promotion conditions:
Specific terms and conditions apply to promo code promotions, unless stated otherwise:
- Each promo code has specific terms and conditions that are specified in the promotion. A customer must meet the promo requirements to gain the promo code discount
- Promo codes are valid for a limited time only, and unless specified can only be used by the account holder whom the promo code was offered to by HealthPost. HealthPost reserves the right to cancel the order or refuse the discount to customers using promo codes offered to another customer
- HealthPost reserves the right to modify or cancel a promo code at any time
- HealthPost promo codes are single use codes, they cannot be used a second time on a subsequent order that meets the requirements of the promotion
- A customer can only use one promo code per order. If they have an order where the cart meets two promotions, the first promo code entered will be used. When a customer enters the second promo code, this will be rejected, despite their order meeting the promotional requirements
- If the promotion has a minimum purchase requirement, taxes and delivery do not apply toward the minimum purchase amount
- Promo codes are not transferable, and may not be resold or redeemed for cash
- If you change your mind about your order or return products purchased using a promo code, we will only credit the amount paid for the products
If you violate any of the general promo code terms and conditions specified above or any of the additional terms and conditions specific to a promo code, the relevant promo code will be invalid and the discount will not apply.
Gift with purchase
HealthPost may choose to offer a free gift when a customer purchases a certain product or product combination. These are offered at HealthPost’s discretion and can end without warning. Customers cannot transfer the free gift for something of equal value or a discount. There may be limited stock of free gifts. If stocks run out, HealthPost is not liable to offer a replacement. If a customer returns an order that included a free gift, this free gift must also be returned to receive the order refund.
From time to time, HealthPost may run prize promotions on our main website or social channels. To enter a competition, a customer must meet the terms of the competition which will be clearly outlined in the relevant promotions. HealthPost’s decision is final regarding competition winners. Any prizes cannot be returned, exchanged or transferred for cash or products of similar value. In most cases, prizes are supplied by our partners. HealthPost will clearly describe a prize but can only rely on descriptions provided by our partners. HealthPost will meet all the requirements of the Department of Internal Affairs and the Gambling Act 2003 in designing prize promotions.
