If there are any address discrepancies with your order and the product is returned to us, a customer care team member will be in touch. A re-delivery cost will occur for any products that are returned to us.

Unsuccessful Delivery Attempt

If no one is present when the order arrives and it is being delivered by Australia Post, a notification will be left in the mail box for you to pick up your parcel at your local Post Office. 

If your item is delivered by Fastway or Allied Express, arrangement will be made in advance to ensure your item will arrive at your door at your convenience. A re-delivery cost will occur if you are not home at the arranged time.

Rejected By Receiver

If your item is a gift, please ensure the receiver knows about it to avoid parcel rejection. A re-delivery cost will occur if parcel has to be resent.

The expected time delivery given by each courier is for reference only. Delivery might take longer than expected due to various reasons. If you do not receive your item within 10 business days, please contact our customer service team.

Pick up or arranging your own courier is not available at our warehouse to ensure our distribution centre can dispatch all goods efficiently at all times.

How long does it take to ship to our customers?

The estimated delivery time frames are:

From our Melbourne Distribution Centre

  • VIC, approximately 3-5 business days
  • NSW, SA, ACT, approximately 4-8 business days
  • QLD, NT, WA and TAS, approximately 7-10 business days

From our Perth Distribution Centre

  • WA, approximately 1-3 business days

Note

  • Delivery time only starts after your payments have been cleared and the item has been dispatched from our warehouse (usually 1 working day after receipt of cleared payment).
  • We are unable to guarantee a delivery on any specific dates or times as this is not something our delivery partners would be able to guarantee either.

Undeliverable Postcodes

Due to the limited access of our carriers, there are certain postcodes that we are unable to deliver to. Please refer to the list below for more details.

We try our best to include all the undeliverable postcodes on the list, however, there are still a few postcodes that are undeliverable to for some products. Orders with no shipment service will be cancelled and refunded automatically.

Please kindly contact us for more information if you need the item to be delivered to a remote area to ensure your order could be processed successfully.
