Why do I need to pay before receiving the medicine?

Since there is no reliable guaranteed payment method in international trade, and since pharmaceutical products are special commodities, we can only ship them upon receipt of payment.

We are a licensed company and have safely and legally delivered more than 10,000 medicines to 50 countries. When you place an order with us, you will be informed of every step in the process.

Do I need to pay import taxes?

Import taxes might apply to shipping medicines to the destination country. Import taxes normally consist of import VAT and a fee that customs may charge. Since these are different per country (in some countries, the import taxes might even be exempt for pharmaceuticals) and per customs office we often cannot calculate them in advance. Import taxes must be paid by the receiver. They are not included in our invoice. You can contact your local customs office to find out if they apply import taxes and how they can be paid.

How is the cost of each medicine determined?

The base cost of each medicine is set by the manufacturer. On top of that, we add a fee to cover the cost of our services, enabling us to continue functioning as a social enterprise. Profits will be reinvested into maintaining our high level of service, and expanding our medicines portfolio and partner network globally. We strive to cut out as many middle men as possible and always aim for the best price possible.

  2. Step 2 – In some countries, there are additional questions from the medical regulatory agencies (i.e. the FDA, EMA, etc). We provide them with all the necessary information based on the information provided by the patient, such as: the prescription, copy of ID and a letter from the treating doctor to show that the medicines are for personal use.
  3. Step 3 – Customs fees. In some cases, the recipient will be requested to pay taxes and duties. These should be arranged by the patient or receiver and are not covered by Ambitree unless stated otherwise.
