Returning items purchased with Afterpay

Contact us to request a Returns Authorisation as per our regular Returns Policy stated above.

Once we receive and accept your return, we will notify Afterpay.

If you are returning your full order, all future payments for your order will be cancelled. Any payments already made will be refunded directly by Afterpay. 

If you are returning only part of your order, please note that refund amounts are taken off the last payment/s first. If at least one payment has been made in relation to this purchase, and the refunded amount is greater than the amount outstanding, the difference between these amounts will be refunded to the credit/debit card that you used to place the order.

For example, let’s say you made a $400 purchase using Afterpay (i.e. 4 instalments of $100 each) and wish to return items worth $250. Once the return has been approved, Afterpay will cancel your 3rd and 4th instalments of $100, and amend your 2nd instalment to $50. Your new payment schedule would become 2 payments (instead of 4) of $100 & $50. If you had already made 2 payments of $100 each, a refund of $50 would be applied to your card and the remaining 2 payments would be cancelled. 

You can log in to your Afterpay account at any time to view your updated payment schedule. 

Please note, you will be liable for all payment amounts until Afterpay receives confirmation from us that a return has been accepted.

Afterpay will send you an email confirmation when they have processed the refund. It may take up to 48 hours for your bank to process the funds back to your credit card.

As with all returns, refunds are for the items returned only. Restocking fees apply for unwanted items as listed in our Returns Policy above. Original shipping charges are not refundable. It is at your cost to return unwanted goods to us.
