Frequently Asked Questions

When will I receive my order?

Delivery times vary according to where the seller is based and where the customer is based. You can check where the product is shipping from on the product page underneath the price. Delivery to metro areas will be faster than to regional areas.

If I only placed one order, why am I receiving multiple parcels?

Our sellers are brought to you from around Australia. Therefore, if your order contains multiple items by different sellers, they will each be shipped separately from each seller’s location.

I’ve received one item, but where’s the rest of my order?

Each item in your order is shipped by the seller, so if your order comprises multiple items from different sellers, each item will arrive separately. Please check the delivery information provided for each item for full details.

Can I have a refund if I change my mind?

You can return or exchange any item, for any reason, within 30 days of receipt. If you change your mind on a purchased item*, you will be given a store credit or refund to the same value once the item has been received by the appropriate seller. Any shipping costs incurred will not be refunded. Please ensure you use a trackable or signed-for delivery service such as registered post, as we cannot credit your account until the item has been received.

Please note: Store credits are valid for 1 year from the date of issue, unless specified otherwise.

*Items that cannot be exchanged or refunded for change of mind include: The Store gift cards, personalised products, framed artworks, made-to-order products, underwear, earrings, consumer electronics and food items that have been opened. All items being returned must be dispatched/shipped within 10 days of the return being approved, and must be in original condition and packaging and not affected by being used in an abnormal way, or reduced in value by delay on your part. If these requirements are not met, the seller reserves the right to deny a return.

How do I request a refund?

If you have an account with The Store, you can log in, then go to My Orders and request a return. If you used guest checkout, please email help@thestore.com.au. Alternatively, call 1300 656 059 to arrange a return, as all returns must be approved.

Please note that we can only accept returns from the original purchaser. Please check the description of the product in question to be sure of the returns policy and kindly note that some products are not eligible for return - see above*.
