I love to share iHerb deals whenever I hear about them, and right now, with many websites scaling back and delivery delays due to global shutdowns during #pandemic2020, I decided to jump in and place an order from IHerb, with delivery to my door (about $12 for the delivery fee - not much more than Rami Levy charged!). I was curious how things would play out. I'm super happy to report that I placed my order on April 16th and by April 19th in the late morning, the order was delivered to my door! The DHL guy left it on the table on my porch.
Pretty amazing! I'm so happy that I filled in some of the things I was missing this way (like fragrance free laundry detergent, french roast coffee, and eco-friendly dishwasher detergent. I couldn't get those in my grocery delivery, for some reason...)!

More PRO tips for shopping at iHerb:
If you use Shipping Savers, you can get really affordable shipping, even if you choose DHL to your door (I highly recommend this shipping method and sometimes it's as low as $2!) You can sort for Shipping Savers on iHerb by clicking the Shipping Saver checkbox on the left-hand side of the page. Check out my Shipping Saver suggestions, too - click the link for some, read below for others!
Here are some of the things I like to buy at iHerb: Toothbrushes - this 2 pack includes brush covers AND a small roll of floss, and is less than 10 NIS. That means less than 5 NIS for each brush plus cover and some floss! Try beating that price locally! BONUS: this is a shipping saver item, so your shipping cost will GO DOWN when you add it to your cart! Pretty Amazing deal right there! Neosporin and Neosporin with Pain Relief - you can't get these over the counter in Israel! And this is one of the only ways to get neosporin here! It's a bit pricey, but it's a shipping saver, so it should offset some of your shipping! SilverGel - similar products, that are great healing creams for skin, are all Rx only in Israel, and are about the same price or more. If you want to keep a silver based cream handy without needing to prove to your doctor that you need it, stock up at iHerb! AND this product is a shipping saver! Mederma - this scar reducing cream is widely used in the USA, and is not available, as far as I know in Israel! So ordering from iHerb is a great option. Bonus: it's a shipping saver! Palm Oil (this eco-friendly version is not available in Israel at all, and is perfect for making frosting or vegan fudge)
Stash Teas (I buy these when they are on sale, as the sale price comes out to less than the lowest price I can find herbal teas for locally, and these are just SO MUCH HIGHER quality than teas I can find for an affordable price!)
Vitamin D (so many people are deficient, it turns out! And my doctor prescribed a rather high dose, and what's sold here is very low dose and more expensive)
Probiotics are far less expensive from iHerb than any I've found in Israel, and they don't weigh much! Many of these are "shipping savers" - so they'll lower your shipping costs for the whole order if you add them in!
Ricola throat drops (these work out to be only slightly less expensive than the local price, so I use them as a "filler" product, never as my "reason for buying")
Witch Hazel (it's really difficult to find witch hazel products locally, and if you love witch hazel, you'll be thrilled with iherb's price. This one is a toner with alcohol in it - some people like the alcohol in it, but if you don't, they also have plenty of no-alcohol witch hazel products)
Essential Oils (I use them in homemade cleaners) - for a fraction of the price here in Israel! Yes, they are real and natural (and very importantly, not an MLM)!
