New Postage Costs from 1st October 2021

ONL needs to maintain its financial viability providing you with Government funded PBS stoma products. The commission paid by the Department of Health only covers 36% of the cost of picking and packing, and membership fees around 44%. The increased cost of postage and the cost of labour to handle each order requires a modest increase in the cost of postage, effective from 1st October 2021. This is the first increase since September 2018.
Standard parcel
$15 (up from $13) and Two-month parcel $30 (up from $18)
Interstate           
$20 (up from $16) and two-month parcel $40 (up from $24)
Express Post       
$22 (up from $20)

Delivery timeframes

Please allow 8 to 10 working days for delivery on orders. (This includes delays due to COVID-19).
We can often achieve better during the middle of the month.

 

Pick-up not yet available

Your safety remains our top priority. Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its associated restrictions, pick-up orders are not yet available. This is to ensure the safety of the ONL community and to protect our most vulnerable members, staff and volunteers. Postage and handling fee of $15 will be charged. Payments can be made by Debit Card, Credit Card, Direct Debit, Cheque or Money Order.
 

Medicare Number required with your online order

It is now compulsory to provide your current 11 digit Medicare number, to enable ONL to claim on your behalf.
The 11 digits are the 10 digit sequence on the top of your card; the 11th digit is alongside your name.

Example: 1234 56789 1
1 - My Name
Becomes 12345678911 (no spaces or dashes).
