Our shipping policy is to keep our product prices as low as possible and charge customers just the actual costs based on the weight of your order, and the postage method you have selected. All parcels and orders are not insured by us, however if this is something you would like, please give us a call on 0411326432
and we will add the cost of insurance to your final order.
We do not profit on shipping costs or charge handling fees.
Due to a large number of daily orders, we endeavour to ship our orders within 2-5 business days. All orders are completed in order as they are received.
Throughout the year we encounter busy periods therefore orders may take up to 4-5 business days to complete. Thank you in advance for your patience.
Should a product be out of stock then we will contact giving you the option for a refund or backorder.
Please note that if you select Express Post it refers to the postal method rather than the speed of processing by us. If you need an order very urgently for a deadline add a note in the comments box at the time of ordering to let us know and will always endeavour to get your order off to you asap. We do our best to get orders off as quickly as possible but peak times of the year such as Easter, Mothers Day & August-December (Christmas period) extra time is required due to high volume of orders so please allow 4-5 days.
SHIPPING OPTIONS IN AUSTRALIA
Generally 1-4 days Wollongong once shipped, 3-5 business days to Sydney, Adelaide or Canberra, approx. 5-7 to Brisbane, approx. 7-14 days to Perth or remote areas
Rates: Shipping costs are automatically generated by our eParcel postage calculator at checkout as it is linked to Australia Post, and large letter rate will display as an option but only when items are flat and below 50gm total weight. Rates will vary according to weight and where you are located. eParcel parcel post is usually the most economical postage method however it does take longer than Express Post. For bulky orders to areas outside main cities this is the most economical option.
There is an option at checkout to waive signature on delivery however please note that if this option is selected you also waive the right to claim for any lost orders that are insured once delivered. If you have special requests as to where you would like an order left please write these in the comments box at checkout so that we can add them to your label.
When orders are shipped by eParcel you will receive email tracking updates automatically from Australia Post on shipping and when it is due to be delivered.
Return to Sender:
Please check your address carefully when placing an order. If an order is returned to sender due to an incorrect address being entered by the customer), the sender (Beaded Designs by Deb) is charged a return to sender penalty fee of $11.00 per parcel by Australia Post. If this occurs we will need to recoup this cost from the customer as well as the cost to re-ship the order.
Dangerous Goods: Inflammable goods such as aerosols, alcohol inks and resins cannot be shipped outside
Flat rate satchels can work out less than the eParcel Express option listed above if you are outside major cities and are having an order over 500gm shipped.
Rates: These are generated at checkout via Australia Post for 3 satchel sizes depending on the weight of your order – 500gm, 3kg & 5kg. If orders are over 5kg this option will not appear. We may still be able to ship in multiple satchels however so the best thing is to select the Parcel Post or Express Post E-Parcel option and contact us to see if we are able to ship by flat rate satchels.
