Shipping & Delivery

All orders will be shipped via Australia Post / Startrack Express. We only ship to Australia and New Zealand. Your order will be shipped within one business day after we receive payment, providing the items are in stock.

Our domestic shipping rates start at:

  • $6.95 eParcel Standard (2 to 4 days, tracked)
  • $8.95 eParcel Express (1 to 2 days, tracked)
  • $3 Economy Mail (Stamped "snail mail". No tracking/support available other than confirmation of dispatch)

International rates start at:

  • $5.78 - Air Mail (3+ days, not tracked)
  • $11.49 - Track and Pack (3+ days with tracking)
  • $16.50 Express (2-5 days, tracked)

High-value orders could be subject to a signature on delivery (which may override your selection during checkout).

Pick Ups - if your postcode is nearby ours, then you'll be offered pickup during checkout. We will contact you by email when your order is ready to pick up - do not expect your order to be instantly available as we are a warehouse with a pick-and-pack routine (aka, we're not a shop front).

Please visit Australia Post or Startrack Express for more information regarding their mail services.

If Express Post takes longer than quoted: First of all, that's far from ideal! We can only refund up-to-the cost difference of a standard tracked service to the same location.

Returns & Replacements

Our merchandise is carefully packaged for shipment by our distribution team, however, we realise that damage during transit may occur despite these precautions. Please check all shipments when they are delivered for shortages or signs of damage. If you find a problem, reply to your order confirmation email. Even if the exterior cartons of your shipment appear undamaged, you should still unpack and examine the goods as soon as possible. Please do not dispose of any packing material until you have contacted us and are satisfied with your delivery.

Return postage is typically paid by the customer. Product faults that can't be confirmed might be subject to return postage at your cost in both directions.

If you have incorrectly ordered a product (which is assessed by us as a resalable maker favourite) then we would be happy to exchange it for you within 14 days providing the item is in its original condition and has not be used. Reply to your order confirmation email to begin this. Note, we'll assess the product to ensure it's a resalable maker favourite.

A 15% restocking fee might be collected for returns, refunds or cancellations - this is assessed case by case.

Viewing Orders & Status

Order and payment confirmation will be sent to your email once your order has been received. An order despatch confirmation will be provided once your parcel has been shipped. If you chose a trackable shipment method then the tracking number will be included in the dispatch email.
