How to place an order
Each Active Socks product detail page contains the option Add to Cart. As you shop, you can add as many items to your shopping basket as you wish. After adding the last item, review your Shopping Bag. This page will give you a break down of the product(s) you have selected to buy, along with the price and quantity for each. Here you can edit your purchases – deleting items, adding promotion codes or changing quantities as needed, calculate the cost of shipping or go to Checkout.
Incorrect Shipping Address
Your order will be shipped to the address that you provide when you place your order. It's your responsibility to supply an accurate Shipping Address including the correct Suburb, State and Postcode. Active Socks does not accept responsibility for orders which have been shipped to an incorrect address that you have provided.
It's important to include the correct postcode because many suburb names are duplicated around the country. For example, there are 6 Richmonds around Australia, one in Victoria, Tasmania, New South Wales, South Australia and two in Queensland. Without the corresponding Postcode for a Suburb and State, it's easy for Australia Post to misdirect your parcel.
If you've made a mistake and provided the wrong postcode or suburb, your parcel will be redirected to the AusPost Mail Redistribution Centre where, after an investigation, the item may be sent back to us. The Mail Redistribution Centre has special authority to open mail that arrives there. Australia Post does not agree to requests for undeliverable articles to be returned within a certain time - this can take several weeks. When your order is returned to us we will contact you to for the correct Shipping Address. Please note that an additional postage fee may be charged.
If after you place your order you realise that you've made a mistake with the Shipping Address please call us immediately on +61 3 9384 6933 or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. As soon as you contact us we will place your order “On Hold” to stop further processing (provided that is hasn’t been lodged with AusPost as yet) so that the Shipping Address can be corrected.
If a parcel is returned to us as UNCLAIMED, further freight charges will be payable for re-despatch. Please ensure that you enter the correct delivery address as parcels which are returned to us as UNDELIVERABLE will incur a re-send fee. Parcel charges for the original despatch are not refundable. If you have a question about a delivery please contact us at email@example.com (remember to include your Order No. in the Subject Field of your email).
