1. Processing your Order
An email confirmation is sent to your e-mail address after placing your order. Please keep this e-mail as proof of your purchase. We would need your order number in case of any problems. If you do not receive any email from us post your purchase, please check your spam or contact us. Most of the time, it is because of the wrong email address was provided to us.
2. Shipment Processing/Handling Time
Processing time refers to the time it takes to prepare your order for shipping. It is different to the delivery estimate. Most items are sent using express postage as default except for large bulky products; it does not mean your order will be processed on priority. Handling time is entirely different from the shipping time it takes via different delivery options. After your payment is authorised and verified, all orders are processed within three days. Not all orders take three days to process; they could be sent on the same day or as less as one day once your payment is completed. We will contact you if, for some reason, if there are any delays.

It is a known issue with Auspost with their new auto sorting machines that the items get incorrectly sorted and bounces between state for interstate parcels or bounces between the different facility of intra-state parcels. If you notice this, please message us immediately, and we will put an intercept request with Auspost to manually sort this item and ship it back your way. As a free service to our customers, we lodge the request with auspost upon customer notifying us and follow up with you every few days with an update.
If the parcel is sent to you in a satchel, sometimes the tracking event is recorded at the time we purchase these prepaid satchel from the post office. Confusion might sometimes arise as the tracking events will show even before you place the order; the tracking will fix itself as soon as it reaches a orting facility.
