-has anyone ordered online before?? I order every 3 months online using my debit card. No problems except Thompson and morgan reject my card.
-did you get the shipment?? Always and always, never missed a single one. It does not matter if package is not registered although it should be.
-any certification,license required? (phytosanitary,import license etc) For small seeds packets up to 1 kg, nothing is required. If it is bulk, you can go to GPO and talk to guys.
-from where? (thailand,US,UK,Canada, etc) Yes lots of countries including USA, UK, South africa, cZech republic, Germany etc.

Depends on weight. If it is a bulk shipment, GPO will hold it. I have got many tubers in small quantities and GPO ignored it. One important thing, it must be mentioned on the customs envelope that this is a gift item, a horticulture item having no commercial value. Hopefully they will let it go.

Hi Khabbab, you mentioned that you use a debit card online to purchase the seeds. which card are you using and i had an understanding that only credit cards can be used online, how are you using debit card?

Mostly i use my Standard chartered visa debit card, it works on most online sites. Sometimes i also use UBL prepaid Visa card which works on only those sites requiring 3 digit security code.
