Payments, Refunds and Cancellations
Payment is made at "point of sale". Our payment system is automated, calculating your order and postage, for the simplest process. We accept PayPal, Stripe and Layby payments for Australian and International orders. Direct Deposit is provided for Australian orders only. PayPal is a secure, fast and easy way to pay online.

If you don’t have a PayPal account, sign up for one here.
Late payments on invoices are charged @ 3% per month, if order is still required. As storage space for our own inventory is limited, alternative storage is acquired for orders awaiting payment. The late fee helps with the cost of storing orders in a secure facility until paid.

Upon acceptance of the quote, an invoice will be issued. Our payment policy for invoices are; net 14 days, cleared payment before shipment. If your order is ready before the end of term, we will contact you via your preferred method of communication.
Large or custom orders require longer manufacturing time therefore, payment terms are extended to accommodate production and a deposit of 30% is required.
