RETURNS:

We do our best to describe all items accurately, fairly and in detail, but we understand that sometimes what you get just isn't what you expected ... and we realise that it's in our best interests to make sure that you are radiantly happy with your purchase. Therefore we offer a two-tiered returns policy:

  • STATUTORY RETURNS
    In accordance with NSW Office of Fair Trading guidelines, if you have an item that is faulty, has been wrongly described, or does not do what it's supposed to do, then we offer a full refund or exchange of goods as you prefer. Please contact us to arrange return postage.
  • CHANGE-OF-MIND RETURNS
    If you've bought too many, the wrong colour or size, or you've just changed your mind, then in addition to our statutory requirements, and without prejudice to our rights to decline such requests, we may agree to accept those items back for a refund of item price excluding postage costs* on the following conditions:
    1. you have our prior approval by email or telephone.
    2. return postage is at your expense.
    3. the return is made within 60 days of purchase.
    4. the items are received by us in saleable condition.**
    5. the items are regular stocked items, not custom-made or special order.

      * Orders sent with free postage will have the relevant postage charge for that destination deducted from the refund or credit.

      ** When returning items, we strongly recommend that you return them packed in a box. Padded bags and post packs do not provide adequate protection, and we are not able to accept damaged items for return or refund.

      Once you have our approval, please include a note with your name and invoice number, and return your unwanted items to:

      The Photo Album Shop
      PO Box 208
      CROOKWELL NSW 2583

      Return postage is at your expense. Unauthorised returns will not be accepted, and no responsibility will be accepted for goods so sent. Items received back in poor or damaged condition will not be refunded or returned.

      On receipt of returned items in good condition, a refund will be issued within seven days using the same method as your initial payment (where possible).
