Shipping Methods

We use the following couriers:

  • Standard Shipping: Standard orders will be sent via Australia Post . Please note, standard shipping is a basic service only - a signature is not required for delivery/collection and cannot be requested. If you require a signature upon delivery, you will need to opt for Express Shipping (Signature Required).
  • Express Shipping (Authority to Leave) & Express Shipping (Signature Required): Express orders will be sent via Star Track Premium service or TNT Overnight.

Parcels Returned to Sender

Labels for your parcel are generated automatically by our labelling system, and are not manually checked by our staff. It is your responsibility to ensure that the details provided for your address are clear, correct and complete, and should be checked both prior to submitting your order, and on your order confirmation email. Incorrect or incomplete addresses (i.e. missing the house number), or failure to collect your parcel in time from the post office, will result in your parcel being returned to sender. A Return to Sender fee of $10.00, as well as a Redelivery fee (calculated at cost) will be required to be paid prior to your parcel being shipped again. You will be notified of the amount via email with a link for payment.

 

Authority to Leave vs. Signature Required

By choosing the Express Shipping (Authority to Leave) option, you are providing the courier with your authority to leave the parcel on site if no one will be home to receive it. Should you wish to proceed with this option, please state in the Order Notes section during checkout where you would like  the parcel to be left. The Express Shipping (Signature Required) option means that if no one will be home to receive the parcel, it will either be delivered to your local post office for collection, or alternatively a card will be left to organise a re-delivery with the courier for a day you will be home.

Delivery Information

Once your order has been sent, you will receive a dispatch notification email with tracking details, including the courier that was used and the tracking number. You may track your order online using the courier's online tracking service. You can also access your tracking number by logging into 'My Account' and clicking on the order in question. Alternatively, you can contact us for your tracking number by calling (02) 6025 6765 or by emailing info@giftsociety.com.au.

If you are unable to receive your parcel in person, an instruction card from the courier will be left. You will be required to contact the courier to arrange a redelivery on a day you will be home, or provide Authority to Leave in the event you won't be home. Alternatively, upon placing your order, in the 'Order Notes' section during checkout, you can provide Authority to Leave. Please specify an area for your item to be left if you will not be home (i.e. On porch to left of door).
