Your satisfaction is our number one priority that is why returning a faulty or incorrectly supplied product will not come at an extra cost to our customers.
Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement (subject to stock availability) or refund for products that may have a major failure as well as compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
Minor faults: Items that have minor faults, such that does not take away from the main purpose of the item may be returned to us for a free repair, replacement, refund or credit. We can choose to give you a free repair instead of a replacement or refund.
Major faults: Items that have major faults, such that does take away from the main purpose of the item, you may choose to return the items for a refund, or keep the product and ask for compensation for the drop in value caused by the problem (partial refund). As we do not hold surplus flash sale items in stock, we will be unable to arrange a replacement or exchange product in most instances.

- Goods presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type rather than being repaired. Refurbished parts may be used to repair the goods.

What Happens After I Return The Item:
- All goods will be inspected and processed within 1-3 working days from the date the faulty product is received prior to warranting a refund or credit.
- Once your returned item is received and inspected and your request is approved we will send you an email to notify you that we have processed your request for refund and a credit will automatically be applied to your original method of payment. Depending on your bank, it can take up to 10 business days for the funds to appear in your account. If you had purchased the item or items with a Bargain Town Gift Card then the refund will be made to the same Gift Card and its balance will be updated.
- Returned products undergo a professional assessment. If the returned item is found not to have a problem or to have become damaged or faulty by you (consumer) or due to you misusing, tampering or using the product in an unreasonable or unintended manner a return shipping fee of $24 will be deducted from your refund amount (per returned pre-paid label). If the total value of the item(s) you have returned using a single pre-paid label is less than $24, there will be no refund for that return. You may also be required to cover all reasonable postage costs of returning the product or products back to you.
- For repairs (where applicable) we may elect to return the product to the manufacturer’s repair agent to determine the nature of the problem. Goods presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type rather than being repaired.
In some instances, we may decide not to offer a remedy and may also require you to pay all reasonable postage costs to return the item back to you. This may include if:
- You simply change your mind after the purchase.
- The item has been destroyed, lost or disposed of by you.
- The item has been damaged after being delivered to you for reasons not related to its state or condition at the time of supply to you.
- The item has been incorporated in or attached to any property and can't be detached or isolated without damaging the item.
- The period of time since supply and circumstances are such that we are permitted by the Law to decline to provide a refund.
- We determine that the fault or damages are caused due to negligence, abuse or misuse on your behalf or if abnormal use by the you (consumer) causes a good to be damaged, and therefore less durable, then the good will not fail to be of acceptable quality if the reason for its failure is that abnormal use.
- If we do not receive your returned items therefore can not confirm the fault.
