Need an Order Earlier

If you require a package by a certain date, please contact us prior to placing your order to make sure we can deliver in that time frame as some item may be out of stock or waiting for international shipments to arrive.

Pre-order Products

There are products on the website that are marked pre-order.  We do not hold stock of these products as they are ordered from our Australian Wholesale when orders are placed.


If your order contains both ‘pre-order’ and ‘non-pre order’ items, then you order will be held until all products have arrived in your order.  If you prefer to have your order sent earlier, and the remainder of products sent later, then there will be a second delivery fee for the second delivery.  You will be contacted via email, after the purchase asking if you would like it held or send now, with a quote of the extra postage fee so you know the costs.


You can add note into your order in shopping cart if you what to advise us how to handle the order, either "hold the order" or "ship separately with extra postage fees".  You can add extra items to the second shipment prior to us shipping as it will be treated as a second order, please make sure to do this as soon as possible for us to amend your order.

Important Notice re: Customs Fees

Customs fees or import duties on merchandise ordered from overseas.


Please be aware that these charges are the customer's responsibility and are beyond our control.


We advise that you contact the relevant government body in your country (e.g. Customs & Excise) for information on what these charges might be.


By law, we have to declare the status (i.e. "merchandise" or "gift") and the value of each parcel accurately.


It is a criminal offence for us to make a false Customs declaration, and we are unable to misrepresent your goods for the reduction of import duties/tax fees.

What if my order hasn't arrived in the estimated time?

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.


Please be advised that our delivery time guidelines are based on business days, which only includes Monday - Friday and excludes public holidays.

If you believe your order is outside the specified time range of delivery, and you are having your parcel delivered to a business address, please check the mail room or reception for your parcel. 


If your parcel is being delivered to a home address and you have left delivery instructions, please check around your property (such as the meter box, carport etc) for somewhere safe the delivery driver may have left your parcel.


Please check your confirmation email to confirm your delivery address was correct.

How to track your parcel:

You will receive a notification to the nominated email address when our dispatch department update your order as shipped.  This email will have the carrier and tracking so you can track your package.

Ways to ensure you don't miss your delivery:


It's always best to have a parcel be delivered where someone will be available to sign for the parcel - this is the safest option for delivery. If you are unable to do this, you can leave delivery instructions during checkout, such as "Leave Parcel at Front Door". 


If you are having your parcel delivered to a work address, please ensure you include your business name and any delivery instructions (eg "Leave at Reception").

Thanks for understanding.
