How does pre-order work?
Pre-order is an order placed for an item that is not in stock yet. We often open pre-orders for popular item that sells out quickly. This also guarantees an immediate dispatch when the product arrives in stock. If your order consists of a pre-order item, the whole order will be processed and dispatched once the pre-order item is available.
What if something I have ordered is out of stock?
All product orders are subject to availability. We aim to have all our items in stock, however, in some cases, we may sell out of an item before we have a chance to mark it out of stock. If this occurs, we will contact you as soon as possible to notify you when the item is expected to be back in stock, and/or provide a refund immediately.
What happens if my order gets lost in the mail?
Please contact Australia Post or the courier that your order was dispatched with and advise them that your order has not arrived. You will need to quote your tracking number that was sent to you in your order confirmation email. If the carrier is unable to locate your items, please contact us at [email protected] and quote your order number and we will lodge an enquiry for you.
If you require additional cover or signature on delivery, please contact us before placing an order to make these arrangements.
Can I return an item if it is not suitable?
You can return an item if it is unused, unworn and with all labels intact. Please note, there are no refunds or exchanges on sale items. Items must be returned within 14 business days from delivery date.
How do I return an item?
To return an item, please send an email to [email protected]. Quote your order/invoice number along with a reason for return. We will then provide you with the details to return the goods.
Please use a secure and insured delivery service (such as registered post), as we cannot accept responsibility for items not received.
