Shipping and Returns
We are an Australian based company and do not currently ship to New Zealand or Internationally. Unfortunately if you are based overseas and try to shop, you will not be able to complete the checkout process.
We do not offer local pick-up. We are an online eCommerce business, we do not have a bricks and mortar shop.
To remain viable we have set a minimum order amount of $50.00 excluding shipping. A fee of $5.00 will be automatically calculated and added to the order balance, on all orders falling below the $50.00 minimum.
We ship out promptly and whenever possible, try to get orders out to customers within 1-4 business days. This excludes our annual December/January shutdown period and Public Holidays.
Australia Post and the courier and freight services we rely on, regularly increase their prices. We do have to put up our own postage and shipping prices to cover those increases.
Australia Post Express Satchels are our preferred method of shipping but we also use Regular Parcel Post, Sendle or TNT.
We have set shipping rates per order including packaging, insurance and handling. Shipping prices may change without notice in line with the cost of Australia Post services and or the costs associated with the other freight and courier services we use.
If your order is urgent, please mention that (in the comments section of your order) Although we cannot make any guarantees, we will do our best to ship the order out as soon as possible.
The cost of postage over the counter at any Post Office does not include the cost to our business of packing staff, packaging materials, fuel and insurance. We have to take these expenses into account, to remain viable.
Thank you for your support and understanding, we appreciate it and will do our best to give you the best possible shopping experience.
