www.healthkoreaus.com
www.speedns.co.kr
www.mass119.com
www.madmass.net

All in Korean; contact them for assistance. They're based in the US so their English should be good enough.

There's always Gmarket.

Do you need a Korean's registration number to order products through those four websites, or do they ship without requiring it?

Buying whey protein, sports supplements online ...
« Reply #102 on: February 13, 2012, 11:37:09 AM »
Hi all....

Am looking to order some whey protein and other sports supplements - I know  speedns.co.kr + iherb.com offer shipping to Korea ... as well as some other sites.

Now I am aware from reading threads that iherb.com requires that you have a credit card - I don't :-(

Is this the case for speedns.co.kr too ??? or is it possible to pay via bank transfer / visa debit card ??

Any suggestions much appreciated...

This ^ protein tastes like sh#$ but it works, it's cheap as hell, and has received a lot of good reviews. After I started buying this, I stopped buying stuff from iherb. Save yourself some money and sign up for gmarket. You don't even need to know Korean...

27.8g protein per serving.
The one that's 3kg has 100 servings in it.
I get the 5kg one and don't remember how many servings, I'll check when I get home.

I use speedyns.  Just like the name, it really is quite speedy, usually just a few days.  After maybe four or five orders I have already received a few discounts and a free towel.

My co-teacher had to sign up and she fills out the form since it is in Korean.  At the end, we choose the transfer money through bank accounts option.  I go to my bank and using an atm just transfer the total amount to the site owner's bank account.  That easy.

Hi guys,
I'm new to Incheon. I did a lot of running in the past and intend to start training again. I'm thinking of maybe doing the Seoul marathon early next year. Does anyone know anywhere in Incheon where I can buy Protein/Carbohydrate Recovery drinks.
Many Thanks

I've found that it's easiest to buy those kinds of things on iherb.com. That might partly be because I live in a smaller city (Gyeongju), but it's really convenient, there are plenty of reviews and shipping is cheap. This code will also save you $5: WEQ406.

Also, there's a Facebook group that us waygooks are in. It's really helpful in signing up for marathons, etc. Link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/304771138902/

+1 for iHerb. Cheap shipping to Korea usually within a week. On some months they have free shipping specials. Note that Korea Customs Service puts a limit of 6 bottles of vitamins per shipment.
Save $5 on your first iHerb order under $40 by using coupon code VIS416, or save $10 if your first iHerb order is over $40!

Good for over 30,000 products including nutritional supplements, beauty items food and other health products. Cheap and fast shipping worldwide.

As said go with IHerb.   Look at the banner ads.  One is for IHerb.   They are great.   I have ordered on a Monday and got on a Friday.  IHerb has cheap shipping and has experience in dealing with Korea.

Amazon does ship to Korea but it is exorbitantly expensive.

Make sure to find the banner ad.   It has a coupon code on it that will save you 10 dollars off the first order.

If not use my code it is OWU710.

A note, when you order make sure to use Korea Post for shipping.  It is much quicker and less likely to get lost the USPS.
