savings on items. At checkout, you can redeem the points you have earned
100 BNA Points is equal to AUD $3.
When you place an order, the BNA Points earned from this order are in pending status until the order is processed and shipped, and from that point of time, you will be able to use and redeem them on a new order. You can see your point details on My Account page.

A Pre-Order item is a product that will be soon released by the manufacturer or has just been released but not yet got into our stock. We offer customers the option to place pre-order to secure the availability especially when the product is in limited supply, by either the manufacturer or us. By pre-ordering, you are also assured that the pre-order product will be supplied and shipped to you first before we announce the arrival and supply to other customers.
If you use Credit Card or PayPal payment method to check out, the payment will be charged or processed at the same time you complete the checkout and place the order, no matter if it is a normal order or an order containing pre-order items. If you use Bank Deposit/Transfer or Money Order to pay, you will not be required to make a payment until your order is ready for shipping. We will notify you at that time.
Price and Shipping
We guarantee that you get the best price when you pre-order. Usually products will remain at the same price but from time to time, their prices can be raised when they become in stock due to some unforeseen reasons, but those pre-orders that already contains such products will not be affected. However, shipping cost might have to be adjusted occasionally if the real delivery charge is much higher than the original cost on preorder. We will notify you prior to the dispatch in such cases.
If your order contains both pre-orders and in-stock items, it will be held by default until all items become available and ready for shipping. If you would like the in-stock items to be shipped first, we recommend you to place orders separately. If you only decide this after you have already placed the order, please feel free to contact our support to split the order for you. However, please note there may incur an additional shipping cost in this case.
We provide an In-Stock-Notification function on our website, which means you can subscribe to a notification for a product that is not currently in stock. It can be temporarily sold out or on pre-order status. It is not necessary to have an account to subscribe yourself. Once this item becomes available, our system will notify you immediately.
Tip: Your subscription can help us decide how quick and how many to order in so that it can often ensure that it gets in stock asap and also there will be enough quantity available for your purchase.
Those products with the "Future Release" badge are usually not available in the market yet or have just been released by the manufacturer but we have not received the full info or had an exact expecting date yet. They are often very new and may well be open for pre-order and/or be stocked in the near future. Please feel free to subscribe for a in-stock-notification if you are interested in any of them.
Those products with the "Discontinue" badge are normally out of production by the manufacturer or no longer available from the supplier either temporarily or permanently. In some cases, they may be in stock again if the manufacturer reproduces them. You are free to subscribe for an in-stock notification but we won't suggest you count on it because most probably, a continued product will not become available any more.

Yes, we combine shipping cost as much as we can and the estimated shipping cost on our website is 99% correct and reflects the best shipping rates we can do. However, our system may return a cheaper shipping cost than required for an oversized item which cannot be handled by ordinary shipping methods and in such cases which are actually very rare, we may have to contact you about an extra postage to pay.
We dispatch ALL in-stock items within 24 hours once the payment is received except for Australian public holidays.
For preorders, the items will be dispatched soon as they come in stock.
Delivery time for each order depends on where you live and what shipping service you choose. By clicking the button "Estimate Shipping" on the Shopping Cart page, or when you are checking out, you will be provided not only the postage but also the estimated delivery time to your address or a specific location you choose. Usually it takes longer time for larger parcel to arrive.
