I haven’t heard anything easy about dealing with the TGA. They’re pleasant enough to talk to, though. It’s all down to interpretation, of which you’re initially liable. Hoping someone else can chime in.

1) I’m interested in this as well (not Ayurvedic specifically). Without consulting a lawyer or specialist the most concrete answer wrt. dealing with the TGA that I can surmise is that it’s directly related to the claims you’re making about your product(s). Products I’m looking at selling would require dealing with the TGA if I advertised health claims. However the very same products are already being sold as-is, without health claims, or any claims of the sort (not as supplements, not as food).

2) Again, haven’t consulted anybody, nor an export, but what I can surmise is: If you’re making the product, manufacturing license / cost / inspections. Otherwise TGA approval of some sort where the product is being made / ordered from.

3) Can’t answer this one I’m afraid – creating a barcode is easy enough, at this stage I’m unaware if you’d need to register it anywhere. Actually scrap that, I found this with 5 seconds of Googling for my own curiosity – https://barcodesaustralia.com/barcode-registration/

4) Look at Shopify, again, Google.
