If an event of this nature occurs, we will provide you with a refund.
We and the Seller(s) reserve the right to limit the sales or quantity of Products to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction. We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors.
Prices, GST and Taxes
All prices on our Website are listed in Australian Dollars and include GST (where applicable).
By placing an order, you agree to pay the stated price (plus any applicable shipping and handling charges) in Australian Dollars for all orders. You agree to pay any additional charges or taxes incurred (including any custom duties) if applicable to the sale or delivery of your order.
We and our Sellers reserve the right to change the prices of Products and shipping at any time without notice to you.
All payments must be made in full prior to delivery of the Product(s). Following payment, you will be issued with a receipt to confirm that payment has been received and we may record your purchase details for future use.

Repairs, Refunds & Replacements
If you receive Products that are damaged or not of acceptable quality, you may have rights under Schedule 2 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (Australian Consumer Law) and/or other consumer laws applying in each Australian State or Territory.
You must notify the Seller of any damaged Product(s) as soon as possible.
If there is a minor problem with your Product(s) (as defined in the Australian Consumer Law) the Seller may repair the Product(s) instead of offering you a replacement or a refund. If there is a major problem with the Product(s), a refund or a replacement may be available.
You will be responsible for the costs of returning the Product(s) to the Seller unless the Seller is required to do so under Australian Consumer Law. We encourage you to use a trackable or sign-for delivery service when returning Product(s).
Unfortunately, Sellers are unable to provide a refund for the following Products: personalised or made to order, undergarments, and pierced jewellery that has been used or opened.
All Product(s) must be returned within 10 days from the date you receive your order and must be shipped by the original purchaser. Further, all Product(s) must be returned to the Seller in their original packaging complete with any accessories. If the aforementioned conditions are not met, the Seller reserves the right to deny a return.
In addition to any of your rights under Australian Consumer Law, if you have changed your mind about your purchase, our Sellers will not be able to offer you a refund or exchange. However, you may be able to contact the Seller directly and arrange an exchange on your own.
If you have damaged the Product(s) yourself, or you have failed to take proper care of the Product(s) the Seller may not be able to provide you with a repair, refund or replacement.
However, you may still be able to contact the Seller to arrange a repair or replacement. The cost of any repair or replacement will be borne by you. Further, the arrangement for any repair or replacement shall be between you and the Seller only and we will not be a party to this arrangement.

While all effort is made to ensure that Products purchased from our Website will be processed by the Seller within 2 – 7 business days of receiving your order, we or the Seller cannot guarantee processing times.
Orders are generally delivered using Sendle. We and the Sellers reserve the right to use other third-party delivery services for your order.

When your order is fulfilled, you will be provided with a tracking number so that you can track the delivery of your order.
Further, you agree that notwithstanding anything in these Terms, we or our Sellers are not liable with respect to any loss, damage, cost or expense you or any third party suffers as a result of a change in delivery times or delay in delivery.
Title and risk in the Product(s) pass to you on the date and time of delivery of the Product(s) to your shipping address.
If you ask for your order to be left at a delivery address, we or our Sellers are not responsible for loss, damage or theft of Product(s) once delivered to that address. You may also prefer to have your order shipped to a business address as an additional precaution.
Further, if you require your order to be redirected to an address other than your original order address, the Seller may charge you a reasonable fee for doing this.
Shipping charges for delivery within Australia are automatically calculated during the checkout process. Shipping outside of Australia is not available.
Our Sellers reserve the right to cancel at any time before delivery where you are in breach of these Terms or where they suspect that you are acting fraudulently. To the extent permitted by law, our Sellers reserve the right to cancel an order if there has been a genuine error in listing the price or description of the Product(s).
