*** Orders sent with Australia Post will be taken to your local post office if you are not home at the time of your delivery. StarTrack and TNT orders will be returned to their local Depot and delivery will be attempted again the following day. Once delivery has been attempted twice it will be held at their depot or returned to sender (RTS). RTS will incur a fee, payable by the customer before we resend the order.
**** Express shipping refers to the delivery method your order is posted, and does not speed up our handling time.
