SHIPPING & POLICIES

POLICIES

Before making a purchase, please read our Policy.

Please contact us at support@mapleandwattle.com within 7 days of delivery if you have an issue with your order. We will gladly address any problem relating to manufacturing issues, missing items, incorrect items or items damaged in transit providing you are able to provide photographic evidence within 7 days of delivery. If you do not let us know within this period, we will assume that you are happy with your order and that your items are satisfactory.

We will not accept any claims after seven (7) days of receipt.

No refunds will be given for shipping delays as they are outside of our control.

Due to the handcrafted nature of the items, variations between products are to be expected.

All sales are final. No cancellation, exchanges or refunds for change of mind. We are unable to offer a refund or a replacement if you don’t like the scent you ordered.

In the event that an incorrect item is sent out, Maple & Wattle will require the customer to return the wrong item via a prepaid shipping label in order to receive a refund. We kindly request that the customer contacts our customer support team to initiate the return process. Once the incorrect item is received and its condition is verified, we will promptly process the refund for the correct amount.

Cancellations are never offered once an order has been placed. However, in extremely rare and exceptional circumstances where a cancellation request is approved by us, a 20% restocking fee will be applied.

The customer is responsible for re-shipping costs when the address has been entered incorrectly, the parcel has been redirected to a different address, or if the parcel has not been picked up in time from the post office. Once we receive the parcel we will email you an invoice with the cost of re-shipping charges + return to sender fees. After payment is made we will reship the parcel.

All orders are sent with signature on delivery. Maple & Wattle is not responsible if a parcel is collected by an unauthorised person.

RETURNS

If you receive a product/s that you believe has manufacturing issues we will require photographic evidence within 7 days of delivery.

If photographic evidence is inconclusive, we will require the product/s to be returned to us for assessment. We will only be able to issue refunds of approved returns. Please contact us prior to returning items.

Items received without a return form/unauthorised returns will not be refunded.

The customer is responsible for the product/s to be returned to us. We request that you package your return appropriately, and send it via Insured Registered Post or Courier, to ensure we receive it.  We are not responsible for any Product Return damaged in transit or lost in transit.

All items returned will be carefully checked by our Quality Control Team.  If it is agreed that the product has manufacturing issues, our liability is limited to a refund of the purchase price or replacement of the item in your next order, along with the refund of reasonable postage costs for the Returned Product. All refunds will be paid in the same form as the original purchase or to the same credit card used to make the original purchase.

If the product is deemed not to have manufacturing issues, and it turns out not to be eligible for a replacement or refund under the terms of this Policy, the customer will be required to pay the costs of shipping the Returned Product back to you.
