Please Note: there is no minimum order value.
6. How do you handle Out of Stock Items
CraftOnline makes every effort to ensure we have ample stock of all products available at all times. However, it is sometimes impossible to predict demand and unforeseeable delivery delays from suppliers. This occasionally leads to some items being out of stock.
All orders are filled on a first come, first served basis. It is possible that you may place an item in your shopping cart as it is in stock but when it gets to our warehouse it is out of stock, or a customer has purchased the last item from our showroom. While we make every effort to have sufficient quantities available of all products to prevent this from occurring, sometimes it is beyond our control.
If an item is out of stock, you may be offered one of the following;
- Shipping your order without the item (and we will refund you the cost of the item)
- Holding your order until the item comes back into stock (usually 3-4 days wait)
- Replacing the item with a different product.
If you choose to wait for an item to come back into stock, and there is a delay in that item arriving, we will contact you as soon as we become aware of the delay.
Some items may be available for sale at a special discounted rate for a limited time only, or as a special promotion, once these items are cleared they may return to the previous retail price. While all effort is made to fulfil all orders, sometimes there may be an item that is sold out and unable to be re-ordered at the same discounted rate. if this occurs we will mark the item as out of stock and issue a refund to you.
All prices are in Australian Dollars and are inclusive of GST and are subject to change without prior notice. Shipping is Free for all orders over $50, and is only $9.95 for orders under $50 regardless of size. At CraftOnline we aim to keep our prices as low as we can, and pass all savings onto you our Customers, sometimes the fluctuating Australian dollar causes pricing adjustments. On occasion you may find an incorrect sale price listed on our website, the correct price will always be the price shown when you add the item to the cart. Sale items may return to pre-sale prices after the sale has finished, once again, the correct price will always be the one listed when you add the item to the cart.
8. Do you ship internationally?
CraftOnline is an Australian owned company and we ship to Australia, New Zealand and now shipping to USA.
