Shipping & Delivery Policy
Shipping within Australia
Order cut off time is 1pm AEST Monday - Thursday, 12pm AEST Friday
MelbourneVapes aim to ship orders within 1 working business day of receipt however during busy periods this may be extended to up to 3-4 working days. If an order is placed on a weekend or public holiday it will be shipped out the next working day. Please keep this in mind if you are running low on items around holiday periods.
Tracking numbers are automatically sent to customers once your order is printed off, this does not mean that your order has been dispatched to you. Please do not email us asking when the order will be shipped, the tracking will update within 48 hours of the parcel being sent to you.
All items within Australia are shipped with Australia Post. Due to CASA regulations, batteries and mods cannot be shipped via Express Post and need to via road. Please select either regular or signature shipping for these items. If you choose Express Post and an item of this nature is in your order, we will refund the difference and send it via Regular Post.
All parcels are sent with Signature Confirmation on delivery, this cannot be removed off a parcel and you will need to sign for a parcel when it is delivered. If you will not be home for delivery, consider having the parcel sent to a workplace or local Australia Post Parcel Locker.
While all care is taken, we cannot be responsible for items that go missing once they have left our warehouse.
Express Post orders can take 1-3 working days depending on where you live, and up to 8 days if you are outside a metro area. Express Post Deliveries are Monday - Saturday (inside Melbourne Metro area) Monday - Friday (outside of Melbourne Metro area and interstate).
Check out http://auspost.com.au/parcels-mail/delivery-areas.html to see if you are in an Express Post area or not.
Regular Parcel Post can take 2-8 working days from being sent and you will be provided with a tracking number once the order is shipped. Regular Post Deliveries are Monday - Friday Australia wide.
We HIGHLY recommend using Express Post as it is quicker than Regular parcel post, even within Victoria. We do not control post times, once a parcel has left us it is in the hands of Australia Post so if you need something urgently please select Express Post to ensure it is delivered in the quickest time possible to you.
Tracking numbers are issued once an order is printed from our warehouse and tracking details can take up to 48 hours to update. If your order is sent within this time frame please be patient, this is not something that we can control and if you have an issue with tracking not updating you should contact Australia Post on 131318 during business hours.
If you are not home to receive parcels and cannot get to a post office, then we recommend that you have parcels delivered to a workplace or a friend or relative's address. Once Australia Post attempt delivery and card an item we cannot have it re-delivered to you and you will need to pick this up from the nominated post outlet on the card you receive.
If your goods are damaged while in transit you need to email us photos of this to info (at) melbournevapes.com.au within 24 hours. We also advise that you need to contact Australia Post to lodge a dispute for the damaged goods.
Please note that if you provide the incorrect address to us for shipping your item, or your parcel is returned to us as not being collected or incorrectly addressed as a result of you entering the incorrect address at checkout, a $20 admin fee will result plus the cost of re-shipping the item back to you. We are charged for orders shipped back to us by Australia Post as a result of non-collection, refusal to collect, and incorrect addressing, and this cost will be passed on.
