Local Shipping Updates July 2020

At this time the normal shipping times for standard deliveries have changed.

Please allow 5-7 business days for standard delivery within Melbourne.

If you live interstate, or in rural or regional Victoria please allow up to 10 business days for your parcel to arrive.

Select the Express Post option if you need your parcel in a (relative) hurry! Australia Post has temporarily suspended the "next day" guarantee. However this is still the fastest way to receive a parcel within 2-5 business days.

International Shipping Update July 2020

We are still processing all requests for international orders, however, please note there may be some delays in international parcel shipping.

Of course we still want to be able to send a little piece of Melbourne out to the world, however, you may need to allow 4-6 weeks for your parcel to arrive. 

For International Orders; shipping rates are estimated by Australia Post as you add items to your shopping cart.

Customs Fees / Duties / Taxes 

Goods Purchased Online for Personal Use

You may be charged customs duties and taxes for something purchased online because:

- Duties and taxes are most typically not included in the price of the goods you purchase online, and might not be included in the overall shipping costs you pay to the online retailer.

- When purchasing goods online, some or all of these goods may not originate in the country you reside in, therefore are subject to a customs duty, which is a tariff or tax imposed on goods when transported across international borders.

- When goods are not shipped domestically (within your country) or within a single customs union, such as the European Union, you are liable to pay any inbound duties and taxes which your local customs authority deems appropriate.

What is payable, if anything, depends on where the goods are sent from and to, the type of goods, their transactional value and the weight of the package.

Any customs fees, duties and taxes payable are the responsibility of the customer when the parcel arrives in its destination country. A handy website to calculate any cost that may be incurred is Duty Calculator.

Gifts Bought Online

A gift is defined as something sent directly by one private individual to another and such goods do not attract import tax if the value is below stated local thresholds.

Ordering and paying for goods that originate outside of your country or customs territory for shipping to a person other than the purchaser does not satisfy the customs definition of being a gift.
