Returns and Refunds Policy
Change of Mind
We want our customers to be delighted with their purchase, and so we offer returns due to change of mind or if you are not completely satisfied with your purchase.
We will provide you with an exchange or full product refund if:
- You have proof of purchase (Tax Invoice)
- You purchased the product in the last 30 days
- The item has not been used, is undamaged and is still in its original, saleable, ‘as new’ condition with all packaging and tags still intact.
- The item is not sale or clearance stock (see below)
Return postage costs are payable by you and will not be refunded. We will offer you a full product refund upon receipt of the returned goods. We will not refund the original postage costs.
If you change your mind after placing an order you can still cancel it provided it has not already shipped. Please make contact ASAP as shipping can sometimes occur within hours of it being placed.
Sale and Clearance Stock
We cannot offer returns or exchanges on sale or clearance items for change of mind. However, under Australian Consumer Law we will offer you a refund or exchange if these items are deemed faulty (see warranty claims).
We make every reasonable effort to carefully check all items where possible prior to dispatch and cannot take responsibility for orders damaged in transit. If you happen to receive an item that has been damaged, please contact us without hesitation and certainly within 48 hours and we will endeavor to rectify the issue with the carrier. Replacement of damaged items is subject to availability and is made at the discretion of Village Toys.
Fortunately lost orders are considered a rare occurrence but can happen. We cannot be held responsible for goods not received. However please contact us if you are concerned about the whereabouts of your parcel. If the carrier has determined it to be lost in transit, a replacement is made at the discretion of Village Toys.
Faulty Goods and Warranty Claims
We take care to check all items prior to dispatch where possible. However, if you happen to receive a faulty item, please contact us as soon as possible by calling (02) 4234 3960 or emailing us directly on email@example.com
You may be asked to supply us with photographic evidence of the damage or fault and a copy of your proof of purchase. If a product is deemed to be faulty, you may choose to have the item replaced (subject to stock being available) or you will be given a full refund.
If we request that the item needs to be returned to us, we will give you instructions to ensure it is returned in good condition. The return postage costs for any faulty item will also be refunded.
We suggest you return goods to us by registered mail as we cannot be held responsible for items going astray. Items need to be re-packaged in a way that will ensure they are not damaged in transit. Remember that shipping costs are payable by you and will not be refunded unless the items are deemed to be faulty. If you wish to discuss the matter further or have questions regarding returns please don't hesitate to call us on (02) 4234 3960 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
All returns are credited back in the same way in which the original purchase was made. eg. If the purchase was made by credit card then the refund will be processed back to your credit card.
