Terms & Conditions
By using or purchasing this website, you are agreeing to the terms and condition stated here and in the other statements on this website.
Generally we can only sell one or two units of a product that is classified as a medicine in NZ as you should see the doctor for further advice should your symptoms persist.
We retain the right to refuse the sale of any products online should we deem that it is the appropriate action e.g. we feel the item is being misused/abused or there is risk to patient safety. We do not accept liability should we decline the sale. We do not sell products of potential abuse over the internet e.g. those containing codeine or sedating antihistamines etc.
If you would like to buy a product that we are not advertising on our website, please email us which product you are after and we will try our best to source it for you.
Product Descriptions and Photos:
Product descriptions and packaging are constantly being updated by manufacturers/suppliers. In case of a discrepancy or difference between a photo and a description, it is the latter (description) that takes precedence as it is readily updated. If there is any problems, we will contact you or if you can contact us prior to purchase to confirm.
Our pricing is in the New Zealand Dollar (NZD) currency and includes GST (NZ Sales Tax).
Should you find a lower price for the same exact retail item that we stock in another online pharmacy in New Zealand (taking into account our delivery charges), we will match that price providing the other competitor’s price is their regular price and did not sell the product in a promotional offer, stock clearance or due to short dating etc. This price match guarantee may be amended without notice. Simply contact us and we will see what we can do for you.
Our prices do not show discounts/savings because New Zealand Laws and Regulations prevent us from showing any discounts on medications which may promote overuse/abuse but be assured that most of our products prices are lower than the Recommended Retail Prices available elsewhere.
You can buy the same products at the same price in-store. Feel free to come in and meet us, however we recommend you give us a call prior to check if the product(s) you are after is/are in stock.
Pharmacist Only (Restricted) medicines:
If you purchase an item that is classified in New Zealand as a “Pharmacist Only” or “Restricted” medicines, there may be a delay in processing your order. You must provide your full contact details including your full name, physical address (wherever you are), and your email address so we can ask a few questions to assess if this medicine is right for you.
Should we deem that this medicine is not appropriate for you or if we do not receive a reply, we have the right to refuse the sale and we will process a refund through DPS Payment Express.
Product Descriptions and Photos:
We always strive to have the most up-to-date pictures/photos of products on our website. Please be aware the suppliers regularly upgrade & change the packaging and shape of their products and what we supply you may therefore may slightly differ from the description and photo at the time of purchase. Generally the Product Descriptions are the mainstay and that what should be relied on rather than the photos. Some products e.g. Baby dummies/comforters, may come in different assorted colours and we cannot guarantee you will get the same coloured ones as in the photo(s). Please contact Customer Service before purchasing if you are requesting certain colours or have queries regarding the above.
We do not stock all colour lenses and prescription lenses and they may have to be ordered specifically for you and then we will deliver it to you. Therefore please expect a few days delay to the normal delivery timeframe.
You can order from us your contact lenses, provided the prescription strength ordered is what your Optometrist/Ophthalmologist prescribed specifically for you, with which you will regularly have reviews and eye examinations. Always follow your health professionals’ and lens manufacturer’s recommendations on the use of your lenses.
