FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
CANCELLATIONS AND ORDER AMENDMENTS
Can I change or modify my order?
Unfortunately we are unable to make any changes to online orders after they’ve been placed. These include: amending a delivery address, adding or removing items, changing sizes or applying your loyalty rewards. Please ensure you review all of your details before completing the checkout process.
How long does it take for my order to arrive?
Within Australia, delivery usually takes between 1-10 working days. All Australian orders are sent via Australia Post e-Parcel service and a signature is required upon delivery. Please ensure you select an address where someone is available during business hours so you can have your purchase as quickly as possible. If for some reason the item cannot be delivered, a card will be left at your assigned delivery address and you will then be required to pick up your parcel at the designated Australia Post Office printed on the card. All international orders are sent via Australia Post Registered Mail and a signature is required upon delivery. Please allow between 5-10 working days for delivery. Your local post office will contact you when your parcel is ready for collection.
How do I track an order?
Once your order is despatched you will receive an email containing a link to the Australia Post website, where the order can be tracked (https://auspost.com.au/mypost/track/#/search). Please allow 24 hours for the tracking number to activate. Australia Post will then notify you directly with updates on the progress of your order.
I’ve only received part of my order, where is the rest of it?
Sometimes we cannot source all items from one location and we need to split an order across two or more separate deliveries. You should receive a tracking notification email for each parcel that is shipped to you. You will then be able to track your parcel progress via Australia Post website https://auspost.com.au/mypost/track/#/search
Please note that items shipped separately may be delivered to you on different days and times.
What can I do if my order hasn’t arrived?
Once the order has been despatched, your tracking details will be e-mailed to you.
Orders can be tracked through Australia Post’s tracking tool using the tracking number emailed to you upon dispatch.
Please note that our shipping guidelines are based on the estimated time of arrival from the dispatch date, not the date your order is placed
If your parcel is showing as delivered by Australia Post, they should have left a card in your letterbox advising you to collect your delivery from your local post office.
For international orders, please check with your local Post Office or Customs office. Your parcel might be held for a signature or tax purposes before delivery.
