They are not. Shipping and handling covers the packaging of your order and its safe and guaranteed delivery to your door. When shipping internationally, the receiving country may add their own import fees or taxes. At this point, we aren’t able to predict how much each country will charge for your order to cross its borders. The fees vary quite a bit. But if you run into any problems, remember that every order is backed by the Organifi money-back guarantee. Our mission is to get you the right nutrients to supercharge your body, wherever you are on planet Earth!
