Is iHerb in Ireland?

No. Rather than having physical stores iHerb sells products online then ships them from their distribution warehouses. Shipments destined for Europe are distributed from warehouses located in the United States.¹

iHerb delivery to Ireland: How does it work?


The good news is iHerb does deliver to Ireland. The cost and delivery time will vary based on the factors:

  1. Destination
  2. Order value and weight
  3. Carrier and shipping method
  4. Economic influences

Sometimes you may see free shipping offers as part of a promotion or when your order exceeds a certain value. To find out what’s currently available you’ll need to check the iHerb website and start the ordering process.

In regard to delivery times, iHerb says that orders to Europe have an average transit time of 7 to 14 days, but this can vary.

At the moment they have three couriers available for Irish orders which are FedEx, DPD and DHL Express.²

Do you have to pay customs on iHerb?

Due to EU legislation you do need to pay customs duties on iHerb orders, but because they’re registered in the Import-One-Stop-Shop they’ll take care of the VAT process for orders not exceeding a value of €150. Above €150 you’ll need to liaise with the courier.

Shop online safely with the Wise virtual card


Now let’s take a look at Wise and why having a Wise virtual card can be brilliant for online shopping.

To start, all you need to do is open a Wise Account. Once you have an account you can send, receive, hold and spend money in multiple currencies, order a physical Wise card, and gain access to the Wise virtual card.


Wise virtual cards benefits:

  • You can have 3 virtual cards at any one time
  • Generate, freeze and delete cards online through the Wise app or website for free
  • Spend in 150 countries
  • Your physical card details are safe because each virtual card has different numbers
  • Add the virtual card to subscriptions and mobile wallets like Google Pay and Apple Pay rather than your physical card.

For Irish customers the iHerb website displays and charges in Euros, but not all retailers do this. What if you want to buy something from the US or UK but need to pay with local currency?

With Wise it’s no problem; You can use Wise virtual cards to pay for international purchases in over 40 currencies.

If you don’t have the right currency in your account when you go to make the purchase, Wise uses smart technology to automatically convert your money using the mid-market rate (the one you normally see on Google) to complete the transaction.
