Paying Customs

You won't be able to receive your item/s until you've paid duties and GST on it.


There are a number of ways to pay us:

Credit card

  • you will need your Customs entry or invoice number, on the top right corner of your invoice
  • there is an additional 1.9% charge for all credit card payments - visit our Credit Card Payment Portal.

Note: We do not accept credit card payments over the telephone as the CSV code is private to the card owner and should not be shared with another person.

Internet banking using "pay a bill"
