Ordering Information, Delivery, Terms & Conditions.

Hello…. We understand the anticipation that comes with ordering your favourite products, which is why we’ve streamlined our delivery process to ensure a smooth and hassle-free experience for you.

Let’s dive into the details of how our delivery system works and what you can expect when placing an order with us.

Delivery Schedule:

We dispatch orders twice a week, on Tuesday and Friday mornings. It’s important to keep in mind our cut-off times for orders, which are Monday at 4:00 pm EST and Thursday at 4:00 pm EST. Orders placed after these times will be processed for the following shipping day. Just a heads up, if it’s a public holiday, your order will be shipped on the next available shipping day, which will be Tuesday or Friday. Please note Express options all ship out only on these dates as well. Just to let you know we do NOT have pickup, either by yourself or via your courier.

Shipping Eligibility:

While express shipping is available at checkout, some products like confetti cannons, colour powder blasters, flash cotton, etc., don’t qualify for express shipping. Make sure to check the individual product pages for specific info on shipping eligibility. Opting for express shipping for these products might cause delays, as we’ll need to coordinate standard shipping with you.

Delivery Address and Payment:

Once your products are delivered, they’re officially yours. The couriers won’t call you before they drop off your goodies, so if you live in a gated community or a complex with entry passcodes, be sure to let us know when you place your order. If your address is a business, include the business name or shop number. Please note that our couriers don’t deliver to PO BOXES, PARCEL LOCKERS, or PARCEL COLLECT locations.

We accept payments through PayPal, Mastercard, Visa, and Amex. We don’t offer invoicing, credit terms and we don’t accept School Orders – schools should use their school credit card to order online.

Liability and Support:

We’ve got your back! If there are any issues or concerns, we’ll tackle them on a case-by-case basis to make sure you’re happy. If there are any delivery hiccups, we’d appreciate it if you reached out to us via EMAIL rather than contacting the courier directly. We’ve got the insider knowledge to speed up the review process.

Delays and Shipping Restrictions:

We do everything in our power to ensure your order arrives promptly. However, if there are any delays caused by our carrier or event out of our control, we won’t be liable for any loss or damage due to the non-delivery. Also if your delivery is to a hotel, motel, resort, or temporary addresses, we won’t be responsible for any challenges that may pop up when delivering to these spots. The estimated delivery times are from our shipping date, not the order placement date. For specific delivery times in different regions of Australia, check out the detailed information provided below.

Claims and Concerns:

If your order is lost, damaged, or missing items, shoot us an EMAIL with the necessary info . Whether it’s lost in transit, damaged on arrival, or contains wrong items, we’ll tackle the issue pronto.

You’re cool with the parcel being left at your place as shown by the courier’s tracking, and you agree not to hold us responsible for any loss or damage.

Standard and Signature:

For Standard deliveries, the courier will get a signature if possible. If you’re not around, they’ll leave the parcel in a safe place if they can, or direct it to the nearest Parcel Connect agent.
