These policies pertain to Australian purchases only.

Defective merchandise may be returned to Australian Online Bookshop within 14 days of original purchase date. Australian Online Bookshop requires valid identification when processing all returns and exchanges without an original receipt. Valid identification is also required to receive or redeem a non-transferable merchandise certificate, credit or cheque.

Online returns

Online refunds for authorised returns will be issued in the original form of payment for price paid or merchandise exchange when returned within 14 days of the invoice date. A cheque may be issued when original form of payment is unavailable for credit.

Australian Online Bookshop accepts your payment by utilizing a credit card gateway, PayPal, cheque or an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) system. In the event that the credit card, PayPal transfer, EFT or draft is returned unpaid (or, if a paper cheque is accepted and the cheque is returned for any reason), there will be a return fee, as permitted by State or Commonwealth law, of $20 or more (which may include fees, collection costs and applicable state taxes). This fee may be presented to your bank electronically or submitted via a paper draft.
