HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SHIP TO MY CUSTOMERS?

The estimated delivery time frames are:

For customers in VIC, approximately 3 - 5 working days;

For customers in NSW, SA, ACT, approximately 4 - 8 working days;

For customers in QLD, NT, WA and TAS, approximately 7 - 10 working days.

NOTE:

Delivery time only starts after buyers’ payments have been cleared and the item has been dispatched from our warehouse (usually 1 -2 working day after receipt of cleared payment).

We are unable to guarantee a delivery on any specific dates or times as this is not something our delivery partners would be able to guarantee neither.

Due to ongoing COVID restrictions being placed in different states and natural disasters from time to time, delivery time frames can be affected and your patience in these cases is appreciated.

For more details, please refer to your Dropshipzone Account-System Updates- Shipping and service updates during the COVID19 pandemic.

Undeliverable Packages

In the unlikely event that your parcel is returned to us, our customer service representative will contact you via email.

Inaccurate address

If there are any address discrepancies with your order the product is returned to us, a customer care team
member will be in touch. A re-delivery cost will occur for any products that are returned to us.

Unsuccessful Delivery Attempt

If no one is present when the order arrives and it is being delivered by Australia Post, a notification will be left in the mailbox for you to pick
up your parcel in your local Post Office. If your item is delivered by Aramex or Allied Express, the arrangement will be made in advance to ensure
your item arrive at your door at your convenience. A re-delivery cost will occur if you are not home at the arranged time.

Rejected by Receiver

If your item is a gift, please ensure the receiver knows about it to avoid parcel rejection. A re-delivery cost will occur if the parcel has to be resent.

The expected time delivery given by each courier is for reference only. Delivery might take longer than expected due to various
reasons. If you do not receive your item within 10 business days, please contact our customer service team.

Pick up or arranging your own courier is not available at our warehouse to ensure our distribution centre can dispatch all goods efficiently at all times.

UNDELIVERABLE POSTCODES

We try our best to deliver the SKUs to Australia wide, however, there are still a few postcodes that are undeliverable for some SKUs. The extra shipping fee will be charged for some vendor SKUs if the order can be delivered with an extra shipping fee. Those orders with no shipment service will be cancelled and refunded automatically with email notification. Please kindly contact your account executive for more information if you need the item to be delivered to the remote areas to ensure your order could be processed successfully.


COVID-19 Shipping Policy

We depots remain open and fully operational during current pandemic restrictions. State and regional COVID lockdowns have caused unprecedented delivery demand. Deliveries into some parts of Greater Sydney are delayed by up to 9 days and deliveries across Greater Melbourne are delayed by up to 4 days.

 

Greater Sydney COVID lockdown update

As the COVID lockdown continues across Greater Sydney, We remains fully operational and ready to deliver for you.

We are currently experiencing some delays and significantly increased demand. We are working hard to minimise delays.

Please be aware that after an unsuccessful delivery attempt, we will leave a calling card and attempt a redelivery. Please do not come to the depot to collect the parcel.

 

If your parcel is being delivered to an address which is not currently open (for example, a non-essential business that is closed due to the lockdown), you may choose to arrange a redirection to an alternate address.

 

Should you have a parcel enquiry or if you would like to arrange a redirection please click here.

 

 Sydney depot remains open

COVID-related lockdowns are having the most severe impact on our Sydney depot. Many shipments originate or pass through this depot, and we are providing extra resources to help with freight processing.

 

Helping with prevention

All of our couriers and depot staff adhere to our COVID-safe management plan, which includes contact-free deliveries and enhanced hygiene protocols.

 

 For business owners – is your address up-to-date?

We cannot deliver to businesses that are closed. If you are a business owner and you are working from home, please update your address with your supplier.

 

 How to contact us

As a result of the current situation, we are experiencing higher than normal enquiries. Email us: [email protected]

 Parcel Connect

Due to the government’s restrictions in regions across Australia on non-essential businesses, some of our Parcel Connect agents in these regions — those not deemed to be an essential business — may not be open during the stated lockdown periods. In the event that a parcel cannot be dropped off at a Parcel Connect agent, it will be returned to the depot for collection or redelivery.
