We supply companies, government agencies, educational institutions, museums, doctors, pharmacists, accountants etc. We cannot supply our products for your private, "at-home" use for legal reasons.

Is there a minimum order value?

There is no minimum order value. For extremely small orders, we have to charge higher shipping costs in order to be cost-effective, however.

Why is my preferred method of payment not available?

As an exclusive B2B dealer, we restrict ourselves to the most popular payment methods that are used for commercial transactions. We are very sorry that we cannot offer direct payments via credit card, but are relying on PayPal for credit card payments instead. Depending on the country, PayPal offers a number of local payment methods, which thus eliminates this disadvantage. We do not offer payment upon delivery because the costs are too high and, in practice, a significant number of these kinds of packages are not accepted.

Where can I find your bank account details for my bank transfer?

You can find all of the required information in your order confirmation and here: Payment and Delivery. Please always state your order or invoice number when making a payment.

Can I order on account?

We are very interested in supplying your company or governmental or educational institutions in Germany on open account – since this is the easiest and most convenient method for all parties involved.
Simply enter your order and check to see if the “on account" payment method is offered in the order form. Further information can be found here: Payment and Delivery.

What is the payment target for invoices?

Usually, invoices are payable within 7 days after the receipt of the goods. For authorities, we expect a payment target of 30 days.

How long does delivery take?

We have e-mailed you the tracking number upon the dispatch of your package. This allows you to track your order. Details for each country of delivery can be found here: Payment and Delivery.

Which parcel service (DHL, DPD, GLS, Transoflex) do you use?

Depending on the country of delivery, size of goods and location of the goods, a particular parcel service is used. Please understand that we do not have direct control over this. Approximately 90% of the packages will be shipped via DHL and DPD. We will email you the tracking number when dispatching your goods so that you can track your order.

Do you deliver to packing stations?

No. This is not possible for logistical reasons.

How long does it take until my order is shipped?

The following factors are essential for a quick processing of your order: availability of goods, a completed payment (except for payments on account). Payments in advance will take 2-3 days to complete. Payments made through PayPal are usually completed immediately.

Where can I find the invoice?

After dispatching the goods, we will send you the invoice by e-mail.

I want to return an item. How does it work?
