Good to Know Before Ordering

1. Special prices for bulk orders are available.
Business discounts for the wholesale product are already applied ahead on the product page.
Therefore, coupons are not applicable for wholesale orders. Please note in advance.

2. Product weight will have a range of 1kg~30kg.
The shipping fee will be automatically applied based on destination country and product weight.
If the shopping cart has products more than 30kg, order can't be checkout, so please reduce the quantity and divide the orders into several orders.
