HOW TO REQUEST A RETURN
Please click the online returns potral link below and complete the form to ensure we can process your request as quickly as possible.
To use the online form you must live in Australia, for all other international returns please contact customer service at email@example.com
Customer Service will then email you a Return Authorisation (RA) Notification. Please note goods will not be processed and cannot be shipped back to us without an approved RA number.
When returning items to our online team, you are responsible for the cost of the return unless the item is faulty. It is also your responsibility to ensure the goods reach our premises as we cannot be responsible until they reach us. We recommend using a tracked method of postage to ensure your return arrives to us safely.
WHEN WILL MY RETURN BE PROCESSED?
Please allow 3 business days from the time we receive your order back at our warehouse for your return to be processed.
We will notify you via email once your return has been processed.
Although our orders go out quickly, it can take up to 14 days for returns to arrive at our warehouse depending on the postage service you use.
Return postage costs are the responsibility of the customer (unless the item is faulty). Any additional duties and taxes assessed by international customs when returning items from overseas are the responsibility of the customer.
We recommend shipping your package back via a traceable method for peace of mind (eg. Australia Post) and to retain your proof of postage as it is the customers responsibility for any lost or missing parcels.
Please note, due to the size of our warehouse, be sure to keep your tracking information handy. Without this information we have no way of seeing if a parcel has reached our warehouse until it is processed. If you can see your return has been delivered and not processed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your tracking number so we can look into it further.
Our business hours are Monday to Thursday, 9AM-5PM AEST and Fridays 9AM-3PM AEST.
