We hope that you are happy with your order! However, if you would like to return your order please see our returns policy and procedure below. Please note this returns policy is applied to all orders once they are placed.

If you are looking for information on delivery, please read our Shipping Information page for details.


What Is Your Returns Policy for Change of Mind?

If you receive a product from us that wasn’t quite right, we are happy for you to return it for an exchange or credit note. Please note we do not offer refunds unless the item is deemed to be faulty by the manufacturer. Sale items can not be exchanged, credited or refunded, unless the item is deemed faulty.

To be eligible for an exchange or credit note, the product needs to be returned to us in its original condition, within 14 days of receiving it.

 Please note:

  • Merchandise must not have been worn/used, altered, or washed
  • Merchandise must have all tags attached in their original placement and be returned in original packaging.
  • A Quirk Of Fate reserves the right to deny a refund or credit if the goods are not returned in the specified condition.
  • Original shipping and handling charges are not refundable for change of mind
  • We offer exchanges in the form of a credit which is valid for 12months from the date of issue.
  • We do not accept returns after 14 days unless goods are faulty, do not match the description, or do not perform their function.
  • If an in-store pick-up product needs to be returned, we require that it be returned within 14 days of email notification that your order is ready to be collected in-store.

As per ACCC regulations, AQOF has the right to either repair or replace a product before a refund is issued. If an item cannot be repaired or replaced and the customer does not want to receive an alternative product to the same value, we will happily provide a refund.

If an item is deemed to be faulty due to inappropriate use by the customer, AQOF is not required to provide a refund.

AQOF may take into account how much time has passed since you bought the product and consider the following factors:

  • Type of product;
  • How a consumer is likely to use the product;
  • The length of time for which it is reasonable for the product to be used;
  • The amount of use it could reasonably be expected to tolerate before the failure becomes noticeable.

Customers should follow any care instructions provided with products and take care of items to ensure they last.

We will reimburse you the cost of returning an item that has been deemed to be faulty, but please take special care when packaging it for return via post or freight to ensure we receive it in the condition it was sent. We are happy for you to return it to us in-store, so please let us know if this is an option for you.

If at any point you would like to discuss a purchase, please do not hesitate to contact us as we are more than happy to offer our advice.

I received a gift from A Quirk Of Fate that I want to exchange?

We require an original invoice to be able to issue a credit/exchange in our system. To do this we would ideally require an invoice or gift receipt number or a purchase date. Please contact us and we will do our best to assist you in this situation.

Refunds are not available for gift returns.


Do I pay for return shipping?

When you send an item back to us we ask that you pay for the return postage. For faulty goods, we will provide an immediate refund of the shipping costs as soon as we have received goods back, if the items are received in the specified timeframe and a copy of the receipt for the postage is provided.

It is the customer’s responsibility to package up the return item/s safely to ensure no damage occurs in transit.

A Quirk Of Fate reserves the right to deny a refund or credit if the product is returned in poor condition/broken or damaged due to improper packaging for transit back to A Quirk Of Fate, so please take extra care!

Any products that are issued as an exchange item will be shipped using standard post. If you require items to be sent Express we will ask that you cover the cost of the Express Postage.


Have you received my returned item?

You will receive an email once your item has been received but please feel free to contact us if you have any concerns. Please ensure tracking is obtained on posting back to us, so we can be sure to know where your parcel is & can be easily tracked.


When will my return be processed?

We will aim to process your exchange, credit note or refund within 1-4 working days of receiving the returned product. Once it has been processed you will receive an email notification. Please allow 2-5 working days for any refund(s) to show in your bank account.

We do not offer any exchanges, credit notes or refunds on used, damaged or lost products.


What if the product breaks, is faulty, or is not what I ordered? 

If you receive a product which is broken, damaged or does not meet the description of what you ordered on delivery please contact us within 2 business days of receipt of goods to discuss your concerns. For items that are received broken or damaged please take a photo of the goods without unpacking the item/s more than necessary so we can forward it to our courier to make a claim.

Once the damage is assessed we either ship out a replacement or provide a credit note or refund depending on the circumstances. We may request items are returned to us before we can issue any refunds or credit notes.

The quicker you can alert us of the problem, the more chance we have of still having the product in stock to enable an exchange.
