We aim to sort out any issues you have, and you can always contact us at email@example.com or via telephone at one of our stores. If an error has been made in your order (e.g. a missing or incorrect item) please contact us immediately and we will rectify in our next shipping cycle.
Returns are accepted dependant upon some terms and conditions. If a product is faulty immediately then a refund or replacement will be issued once we have received and assessed the item. We offer a further 4-6 week refund or replacement warranty on all of our products, depending on the item. In some cases the item will be replaced with a 'for-like' product depending on availability (we will always liaise with you before doing this).
Australian law provides some guarantees for purchasers regarding faulty items. However, returns are not necessarily allowed if any of the following apply:
- The product's condition has been worsened by the use of the product.
- There has been significant use of the product.
- The product has been used incorrectly.
Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
E-Liquids contain food grade ingredients and as such are non-returnable. Atomisers ("coils") are disposable items and as such only a Dead On Arrival (DOA) warranty is provided. Please contact us within 24 hours if an atomiser is DOA. DOA warranties are only valid if correct use has been applied (i.e. proper "priming").
If more than 4-6 weeks have gone by since your purchase, your product reverts to the manufacturer's warranty. Information regarding manufacturer warranties can be found in the product box or on the manufacturer's website.
To be eligible for a refund or replacement, your item must be in the original packaging with all charging cables and accessories included. Proof of purchase must also be included.

Claiming Back Your Return Postage Cost
- You will be responsible for the return postage cost of your items. We will be responsible for the return postage cost of your item to you should it be deemed not faulty, or for the return postage cost of your replacement item should your returned item be deemed faulty.
- To be eligible for a refund on your return postage cost, you must have applied for Refunded Returns through PayPal, and paid for your order entirely via PayPal from an eligible account.
- To start the process of claiming back the return postage cost, follow the instructions at: https://www.paypal.com/au/webapps/mpp/returns
- FROM PAYPAL: Up to 8 refunds per PayPal account per year for eligible purchases. A cap of $45 per refund request applies. Return shipping receipts require the seller’s address and the amount you paid. If your receipt doesn’t include the seller’s address, we also need a photo of the package you returned, showing the seller’s address.
"Change of Mind" Returns
We reserve the right to accept or deny "change of mind" ("buyer's remorse") returns at our sole discretion. These returns will only be accepted if the item is unused and unopened in its original packaging.
Please contact us at email@example.com to seek approval for such a return.
Cancellation of Orders
We will happily cancel any unshipped orders up until the time that the order is due to ship out from our warehouse (generally at around 1:00pm CST).
Please phone us on (08) 8266 6220 with your name and order number to cancel an order that has not yet been shipped.
