Shipping & Returns
Shipping & Returns
Delivery is organized by the supplier, we ask our suppliers to dispatch items within 48 hours. Please reach out directly to the supplier for more information in regards to tracking and delivery times.
Below is our full returns policy (worth the read!) but to summarise, each time you buy from a seller on the Buy From The Bush Marketplace, the individual seller's Returns Policy is applicable to that purchase. This policy will be visible on the product advert. Where a Seller does not have a returns policy or it isn't visible, our Returns Policy (below) applies. To lodge a return, login to your account and request a return. We will send you a mailing label for the selller. If you do not have an account with us and checked out as a guest when you purchased the item, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This policy applies to all goods and services sold via the Marketplace. Each Buyer and Seller expressly agrees that this Refunds Policy forms part of the Terms.
1. Australian Consumer Law
Nothing in this Refunds Policy purports to exclude or impair any rights Buyers have under the Australian Consumer Law.
2. Seller Policy to apply
Each Seller must have its own Seller Refund Policy, which must be clearly displayed in each Advertisement on the Marketplace. Each Seller Refund Policy must be compliant with applicable laws, including the Australian Consumer Law. If a Seller does not clearly display a Seller Refund Policy the Buy From The Bush Refunds Policy set out in Clause 4 below will apply.

If the Buyer has not registered an account with the Marketplace the Buyer must contact the relevant Seller to obtain details of where to send the product for the purposes of obtaining a refund or exchange.

4.2 Returnable Products
Returnable Products are any products that are not specified as Non-Returnable Products in Clause 4.3 below.
A Buyer may return a Returnable Product for any reason within 14 days of receipt provided that: (a) the Returnable Product is unused and in its original condition; and (b) is received by the Seller within 10 days of notice of the return being lodged.

A Seller must accept a return or exchange if a Returnable Product is returned in accordance with Clause 4.2 above or if a Non-Returnable Product is returned and is found to not comply with any non-excludable warranty or guarantee (including under the Australian Consumer Law). If a Seller does not accept a return or exchange it must contact use immediately to discuss the matter.
4.5 Request for Exchange or Refund
Where a product is returned by a Buyer and such return is accepted by the Seller the Buyer may request an exchange or refund. Where the Buyer requests an exchange and such exchange is available the Seller agrees to make the exchange as soon as is reasonably possible. The parties agree that where an exchange is requested because of:
(a) a faulty or incorrect product, the Seller will bear the additional shipping costs; or
(b) a sizing issue or change of mind, the Buyer will bear the additional shipping costs.
Following the receipt of the exchange the Buyer agrees that it has no further claims against us or the Seller in relation to the relevant transaction (unless the exchanged item does not comply with any non-excludable guarantee under the Australian Consumer Law).
Where the Buyer requests a refund the Seller will notify us immediately, providing full details of the transaction including the amount of the relevant transaction. Once the Seller notifies us that the return has been accepted and a refund is to be issued we will process the refund as soon as is reasonably practicable following receipt of such notification. Each Buyer and Seller acknowledges that our sole obligation under this Clause is to process the refund and we will not have any further liability to any Buyer or Seller in relation to any refund or exchange.
Refunds will be issued by us in the form of payment used to complete the transaction. For example, where a transaction has been paid for:
(a) via PayPal, the applicable amount will be refunded to the Buyer’s PayPal account;
(b) by credit card, the applicable amount will be refunded to the Buyer’s card; or
(c) using a gift voucher, a voucher or other form of store credit will be issued.
Buyers agree that upon receipt of a refund from us the Buyer has no further claims against us or the Seller in relation to the relevant transaction.
Any disputes between Buyer and Seller in relation to refunds or exchanges should be notified to us. Clause 11.1 of the Terms will apply to any such disputes.
