shipping & returns
In these Terms, 'us' 'we' or 'our' means Our Calm Place (ABN 96 732 571 406).
We charge a flat rate of $5 for standard delivery within Australia, $10 for express delivery within Australia or free shipping for orders over $60.
If you're local to the Northern Beaches you can arrange to pick up from us, free of charge.
Please note that items are normally processed and shipped within 2-4 business days of ordering. Express postage options do not guarantee prioritised processing. If your order is urgent, please email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to get back to you and process your order expediently where possible.
When you place an order you will receive a reply e-mail acknowledging that your order has been received and your payment has been processed.
Most Australian orders are sent via Australia Post/Sendle with tracking included in postage costs. Please allow 2-4 days for processing before your item ships. You will receive a tracking number once your order shipped from Our Calm Place. Some rural locations will have orders delivered via Australia Post. In the unlikely event of delivery problems at our end, we will keep you informed by e-mail of expected dispatch dates.
We are not responsible for any additional shipping costs for returns, and we do not assume responsibility for reimbursement or compensation of returned packages lost in transit without proof of delivery to Our Calm Place.
Default order shipping includes "Authority To Leave" instructions, whereby the postage carrier utilised for delivery are not required to collect signature on delivery and may leave your parcel unattended on your property. "Authority To Leave" instructions release Our Calm Place from all responsibility in regards to ensuring delivery to your person, including but not limited to situations of carrier delivery to the wrong address, goods stolen after delivery or damage that otherwise occurs due to delivery to your property with authority to leave.
"Signature On Delivery" postage services are available as outlined in the Checkout page. These may incur an extra cost. Our Calm Place endeavours to ensure that each parcel is clearly noted as requiring signature on delivery where this option is chosen; however, in the event that the parcel's carrier company does not correctly adhere to these instructions, Our Calm Place shall not be held accountable for any loss or damage resulting from these actions.
In the event that order processing is delayed due to circumstances beyond our control, we will contact you via email to discuss options around order dispatch times.
