6. How do you handle Out of Stock Items
Out of stock items
With over 50,000 stocked and on hand products in the CraftOnline range it is inevitable that stock quantities will vary ever so slightly. This is estimated to be impacted less than 1% of our range and in the event that we do not have an item in stock which you have ordered but we can still source it, your full order will be put on backorder and you will be notified, we will then complete and ship your order as soon as this stock arrives. In the event that the item ordered is not in stock and the supplier no longer stocks or manufactures the item a refund for that item will be sent back via the original payment method.
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 $75 within Australia, and is only $9.99 for orders under $75 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.
