Placing an Order
You must not make an Online Purchase if you are not resident in Australia or if you do not have the authority to pay for and/or make the online purchase.
By submitting an Order to us, this constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All Orders are subject to acceptance by us and are subject to availability. After placing an Order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your Order. This does not mean that your Order has been accepted. Your Order is confirmed only when it is dispatched or when you are notified that the Products you have ordered are available for pick up.
Title to all Products supplied to you will be retained by us until we have accepted and confirmed your Order in accordance with the above and have received the payment in full. All risk of loss of, or damage to, the Products passes to you on delivery or collection, as applicable, of the Products to you.
Payment Methods, Privacy, and Storage of Information
We accept Master Card, Visa, American Express, Paypal, Humm, AfterPay, ZIP, Apple Pay and Strandbags Giftcards issued in Australia as methods of payment for Online Purchases.
Gift cards expire 36 months from the date of issue and must be redeemed before the expiry date. Treat gift cards like cash. We will not be liable for any gift cards defaced, mutilated, altered, lost or stolen and they cannot be replaced or refunded. Gift cards re redeemable for goods at any Strandbags or Zelows Store and also online at Strandbags.com.au. Gift cards are not transferable for cash or credit via EFTPOS and are non-refundable.
Where the cost of a purchase using a gift card exceeds the available card balance, the card holder will be required to make up the difference with an alternative form of payment. Where the cost of an online purchase is less than the available gift card balance, a replacement electronic gift card will be issued for the remaining balance. On redemption of a gift card in store, any outstanding balance will be retained on the gift card or change in cash may be given for the remaining balance up to 10% of the face value of the gift card. Gift cards are highly negotiable and as such should be kept secure.
Please note that PayPal is currently the only payment method available for purchasing gift cards sent by email.
Delivery and Returns Policy
It is important to us that you are delighted with your Online Purchase. If there is any reason why you are not completely satisfied with a Product that you have ordered from us, you may obtain an exchange or a refund in accordance with our Change of Mind Returns Policy and Refund Policy below.
You also have rights under the Australian Consumer Law (“ACL”) and nothing in these Terms of Trade will limit or affect your rights as a consumer under the ACL, for example to obtain a remedy because the Product does not meet the acceptable quality guarantee under the ACL.
Change of Mind Returns
If you have changed your mind, and provided that the Products are returned in their original condition with tags attached and within 30 days from date of purchase, we will offer:
- With your original receipt- you will be entitled to an exchange, a refund or a credit note.
- Without your receipt - you will be entitled to a credit note.
Products purchased at Strandbags Factory Outlet Stores may only be returned to Strandbags Factory Outlet Stores for refund or exchange.
None of the above affects your rights under the Australian Consumer Law.
Our Refund Policy
Our Change of Mind Policy does not affect your rights under the Australian Consumer Law and you have consumer guarantees that cannot be limited by us. If your Product is not of acceptable quality, is not fit for its purpose or is different from its description or sample, then you may be eligible for a refund, exchange or any drop in value of the Product (if you choose to keep it).
If you have purchased a Product with a major fault, you have the right to ask for your choice of a replacement or refund. If you purchased a Product with a minor fault, we can choose to give you a free repair or a replacement or refund.
Products returned under consumer guarantees can be returned within a reasonable timeframe subject to proof of purchase.
Products marked as seconds or sample products must be chosen carefully as these items cannot be returned due to the fault that was identified at the time of purchase. If the seconds or sample product exhibits a fault (not related to the fault identified at the time of purchase), is not fit for purpose or is incorrectly described, it may be returned in accordance with the above consumer guarantees.
If your Online Purchase fails to arrive within 10 days of dispatch, you should firstly contact the relevant delivery carrier with the tracking information that we have provided you. If the delivery carrier is unable to assist, you may ask us to investigate your Online Purchase. We will then investigate your Online Purchase and, if we are satisfied that the non-arrival of your Online Purchase was attributable to us or the delivery carrier, then you can choose whether to have a replacement sent or a refund issued (which will be credited to the payment method which was used to place the Online Purchase, in accordance with our Delivery and Returns Policy).
We may refuse to make future deliveries to addresses that we consider to be unsecure. In this event, you will be contacted by our customer service team and asked to provide an alternative delivery location for future Online Purchases.
If our online systems flag that an Online Purchase may be fraudulent, then we may need to cancel the Online Purchase. If your Online Purchase is cancelled for this reason, our customer care team will contact you to advise you of the cancellation and we will issue you a full refund (which will be credited to the payment method which was used to place the Online Purchase, in accordance with our Delivery and Returns Policy).
If you are still wanting to purchase the relevant Products, we will organise for you to collect these items at one of our stores. Please see the "Click and Collect In Store" section of our Delivery and Returns Policy.
Disclaimer and limitation of liability
You have rights as a consumer under the Australian Consumer Law in relation to goods supplied by us, and nothing in these Terms of Trade is intended to limit those rights. However, except to the extent those rights apply, we disclaim any and all warranties of any kind (whether expressed or implied) in relation to an Online Purchase made through our Website and/or our Products.
Except to the extent required by law, we will not be liable in contract, tort, or otherwise for any loss, damages, costs or expenses, including without limitation for any consequential, special, incidental, indirect, or exemplary damages of any kind or for loss of profits, loss of business, loss of anticipated savings, loss of opportunity, loss of data, or any other indirect or economic losses whatsoever suffered or incurred by you arising out of or in connection with these Terms of Trade.

Events Outside Our Control
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under these Terms of Trade that is caused by events outside our reasonable control ("Force Majeure Event").
