At The Hilltop Group we promise 2 things:
We will never charge a merchant fee surcharge! We consider it a cost of doing business, and taking credit cards and or using a payment gateway is a convenience that increases our customer base. (More about merchant surcharging at the bottom of the page.)
Specific to Hilltop Herbals products, we are not doctors and cannot guarantee a product’s effectiveness for each individual. We can only state what has worked for us and for those who have tested it or purchased it.

* Consumers should be aware there are limits to the amount merchants can surcharge.
