DIY Diet Store Payment Policy
We have not been able to take payments online since early 2022. Because the HCG Diet is considered an alternative weight loss method, we have to take credit/debit card information over the phone.
Please know that:
- Credit/debit card information is input directly into the customer's order on the computer.
- We do not store payment information.
- Incoming phone calls are not recorded.
- There are other offline payment options.
If you aren't comfortable giving payment information over the phone, you may:
- Mail a check payable to DIY Diet Store (order will ship after check clears).
- Mail a money order payable to DIY Diet Store (order will ship upon receipt).
