Hi LukeLee,

Pretty much as everyone else has suggested selling in bulk is an idea.

Assuming you were sending items via Australia Post you’ll find that the postage to most metro areas between 1-7kg is the same with the exception of your local metro area e.g. I can send anything between 500g – 20kg in my metro area for $8.65.

If you look at the bottom of page one of our FAQ’s it shows a table of postage costs which maybe of help to you.

Postage has always been a killer for us – unfortunately there’s not much of an alternative. The best way we’ve found to get around this is customer education and keep repeating the message over and over again.

However with that said I have customers all over Australia, that are quite willing to pay the postage because they ‘want’ the products & they know our turnaround between them placing the order and to us shipping it is super quick (same day if the order is placed before 2pm).

All the best.
